Fast food is a type of mass-produced food that is prepared and served very quickly. The food is typically less nutritionally valuable compared to other foods and dishes. While any meal with low preparation time can be considered fast food, typically the term refers to food sold in a restaurant or store with preheated or precooked ingredients, and served to the customer in a packaged form for take-out/take-away.
Fast food began with the first fish and chip shops in Britain in the 1860s. Drive-through restaurants were first popularized in the 1950s in the United States. The term "fast food" was recognized in a dictionary by Merriam–Webster in 1951.

Love this tall frame shot of this fast food outlet. The light and food on display have pleasing ambiance and details.

The empty restaurant at night creates a little mysterious mood. I like the many warm colours, especially of the neon letters. I like the vertical frame.

Not my favourite sort of food, but sometimes needs must. Excellent light management and agreeable warm lights and colours. Well framed making good use of the vertical frame.

To me, spending time at a restaurant on a journey could sometimes be a waste of money but absolutely not a waste of time. The local food is part of the experience, so Americanized fast food is not for me. On the other hand what I can see here doesn't look like the most typical American food, so maybe I should give it a try. The light and colours and the design of the restaurant make it look quite appetizing.

With the warmth of the lights, this seems like a very difficult shop front to ignore! I think I would be drawn in!
You have angled your photograph very well to draw us into your photograph and made sure that we were able to see some of the foods that were on offer!
Mmmm .. it is lunch time, now!
My warm regards,

Not easy take a picture of a frontage with red neon light, but you did very well.
Also a lovely perspective and depth picture.
Everything very clear and nice to look at.
An excellent composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Il y a comme une contradiction dans le titre. La nourriture française n'est pas synonyme de rapidité. Ce doit être l'influence américaine . Mais cela donne tout de même faim.

It is said that the English eat to live, and the French live to eat. A "fast food restaurant" seems like an oxymoron the universal lexicon.
Yesterday you critiqued the photo "Unfortunate King Sebastian" that I had just posted. If you are as curious about the statue's destruction click on the following newspaper account to find the answer: Daily Mail 25 November 2016. It will make you as angry as it has made me.

I eat fast food now and then but try to avoid it. This looks far more delicious and interesting compared to American fast food. It's a well taken food were we can see the delights in a nice presentation. It's also a sharp and clear shot, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

non è probabilmente il tipico fast food americano, ma si parla in ogni caso si cibo e qui sembra tutto ben presentato e ben preparato.
Bello l'effetto della luce rossa sull'ambiente.

its funny reading the comments of others about fast food in America :)
I really like your photo here, its one that i usually do not capture, but I can see why you did. that red glow of light is awesome and creates a neat hot sensation off the screen. simple yet also creative. well executed!

Neon signs are not as common nowadays as they used to be but what an impressive red vibrant image that really leap out of the frame. A most eye catching image with those delicious goodie on display to make sense and this is the sort of opportunity well taken. Well done.
