PITTSBURGH — November 16th is National Fast Food Day - a day dedicated to those fried, baked and boiled foods you can get without even leaving your car.
Fast food first became popular in the United States in the 1950s.
The options have certainly evolved since then. What started out as mostly burgers and fries now includes tacos, Chinese food, donuts, deli sandwiches and more. You can get almost any food through a drive-thru window.
This likely comes as no surprise: the U.S. is the largest fast food industry in the world.
What’s your favorite fast food restaurant in our area? There are so many, but we narrowed it down to eight that you can choose from.
