Hm, admittedly it's been a while since I've been in a Skyline parlor, but I sure don't remember anybody in the back whipping up each individual batch of chili as soon as someone ordered it, so I'd surely love to hear why it's not "fast food." Regardless, the company's website refers to themselves as "franchisees," so guess what? It's a franchise. I repeat: to the fast food franchise forum, or else there's no need for that forum to exist.
By the way, you can buy Taco Bell and Boston Market branded products at the grocery store too. So I guess by that logic, those aren't fast food franchises, either! Neat!
And I don't remember anyone going into Chasens and having anybody in the back whipping up each individual batch of chili as soon as someone ordered it. Are you now going to claim that Chasens was a fast food place?
Mr Beef had my italian beef, the one I drove from Cincinnati to Chicago just to have back in mid-august, ready and in my hands about two minutes after I ordered it. Very fast. One might call it -- fast food.
I guess Mr Stern's review of this place has to be deleted.
So to clarify - the fact that it is regionally unique cuisine no longer matters, if the food is in your hands quickly?
Oh, and how any seconds is it to the cutoff? Said another way, how long should I wait for the food to be delivered to me before it is no onger fast food?
Enquiring minds need to know.
