American Fast Food Chains

In this column, we would like to introduce the wide variety of fast food chains the United States has to offer! Of course, fast food can be found all over the world, but the United States is known for its wide variety of fast food-delicacies.

THE HISTORY OF "FAST FOOD"

The word "fast food" goes all the way back in time to the fifties. Fast food is typically American, but America does not only serve up burgers and fries. In the U.S., choices range from breakfast, pizza, donuts, burgers and Chinese fast food to steaks, seafood, burritos, hot dogs, sandwiches, coffee and cakes as well. You’ll be quick to see that the possibilities are endless and there is more than "just" fast food in the states! Meanwhile, there are also plenty of vegetarian options, which is why fast food is no longer just something for "meat-eaters", but for everyone.

The fast food chains in the U.S. not only multiply rapidly, but are constantly evolving, with more exotic offers and a constantly improving quality.

WHAT ACTUALLY FASCINATES US ABOUT FAST FOOD?

The answer is simple: It’s fast, it's something for everyone, it tastes good and it is no longer only an experience for kids!

If you want to make a trip through the United States, you should not miss the opportunity to check out the wide variety of fast-food delicacies. This is definitely a culinary experience worth a try! If you never again want to crave the taste of your favorite fast food restaurant that only exists in the United States (so far), give the upcoming Green Card Lottery a shot! We are curious about your opinion and have therefore started a survey, asking which fast food chain you like the most. We will evaluate your answers and create a “top-pick” post according to the feedback we get! We cannot wait and are looking forward to your great feedback!
