fast food restaurant (plural fast food restaurants)

  1. Any restaurant characterised by the ability, in principle, to provide hot food with the minimum of delay (typically no longer than a patron would be happy to stand and wait). Does not necessarily preclude the cooking of food to order.
    The overreliance on fast food restaurants is believed to be a major contributor to the increase in obesity.
