Their are many causes of popularity for fast food restaurants. For one the food is a lot cheaper and it's easily cooked. Now that we have this recession, it's very popular because it's affordable. Three dollars can buy a whole meal! When people go on break from work and dont have much time to sit and eat a good meal it's a lot more cheaper and convient to stop and get something fast. The food is not always good but it is most of the time. Fast food is not very healthy either and it's one of the quickest ways to gain weight. I suggest that fast food should'nt be eaten every day because of the health risks. Teenagers like myself love fast food. After the movies or a long day out it's very convient to get something off the dollar menu at McDonalds, besides there is one on every corner. Lots of elderly people love to hang out at fast food restaurants and have a cup of coffee. Fast food restaurants are changing day to day. Their are flat screens at almost every McDonalds with the news playing and elderly people love watching the news. I guess that's what draws people to fast food restaurants the cheap, fast, convient, service and the news!!
