I admit I don't eat a lot of fast food. Although I do hit up the Taco Cabana on the way to my house occasionally. But that's not to say I didn't stop by Carl's Jr. every single day leaving work back when I lived in Eugene, OR. What can I say, they had a Pastrami Burger. Pastrami Burger! Pastrami! On a burger! Anyway, here is your Yes or BS.

  1. The first fast food restaurant was McDonald's.
    1. BS - White Castle is considered the first fast food place. The first one opened in 1921, when McDonald's didn't open until 1940, and was a barbecue joint. They didn't focus on burgers until 1948.
  2. McDonald's was the first restaurant with a drive-thru.
    1. BS - A few different places started using them in the 30's and 40's. It's not clear who did it first, but McDonald's didn't open its first drive thru until 1975.
  3. In Australia, Burger Kings are called Hungry Jack's.
    1. Yes - Australia already had a restaurant called Burger King when they expanded there in the 1970's.
  4. There are currently no Taco Bells in Mexico.
    1. Yes - They tried opening a few in 1992, but they all closed within two years. They opened one in Mexico City in 2007, but it closed in 2010.
  5. Pizza Hut used to buy a ton of kale, but didn't use it on pizzas or in salads.
    1. Yes - They used the kale to decorate their salad bar.
