Convenience or Quality?
One evening, I went with my family to eat at a restaurant called The Olive Garden. When we arrived, we went inside only to find that we had to wait for one hour before a table would become available. My family and I had to stand outside of the restaurant for a good portion of this time. While I was standing there, I looked across the street and noticed that there were five fast food restaurants surrounding the shopping center. These places had no line in them and people were seated and enjoying their meals. This made it very tempting to just ditch the restaurant, walk across the street, and start eating.Fast food is everywhere. Most people in the United States cannot travel more than a few blocks without seeing a fast food restaurant. In fact, United states is Home of world`s famous big fast food restaurants like McDonalds, Berger king, Dominos.

By quality I mean the presentation and taste of the food. It is generally known that restaurants present their food better and the taste is also better.Fast food is very efficient because of the time you save by stopping at one of these places. People don’t have to go to a certain restaurant to get the type of food that they want because fast food offers a huge selection. People are able to get whatever kind of meat they want at a fast food place. People can order beef hamburgers, fish fillets, chicken breasts, pork (Boston Market I believe), and have it cooked any way they want. They can have it fried, grilled, rare, well-done, etc… For people on diets they can choose to have a healthy salad. Some places now offer low carbohydrates foods on their menus. When people have finished their main course, they can get dessert. People can choose many kinds of desserts ranging from ice cream to cookies. This is a full course meal that could be potentially healthyThe cost of fast food is generally cheap. People can get a meal that consists of a hamburger, drink, and fries for about five dollars. If they didn’t want to spend this much all they needed to do is look at the value menu that most places have. People can order multiple items from this
