Fast food is for a place concentrating on very fast counter-only service and take-away food.

The food has a short preparation and serving time, usually because it is industrially prepared food and requires very few additional preparation steps. Food is typically served on disposable plates or in boxes, and often to be eaten with plastic cutlery. Food is typically paid for at the counter prior to consuming. There may be sit-down facilities ranging from one or two to many easy-to-clean chairs and tables.

The most obvious examples are the ubiquitous US chains such as McDonald's, but also includes places like Subway sandwich shops, and may include "fast casual" places like Chipotle Mexican Grill, Hot Dog booths, China take away, carts/food trucks (only ones that appear regularly at the same place) and more.

How to Map

Add a node at the centre of the feature or draw the whole area with a way and add amenity=fast_food to it. You can name it with name=*.

To define what kind of food this place serves you can use the cuisine=* key.

  • drive_through=yes/no - specify if a drive-through service is available
  • drive_in=yes/no - specify if a drive-in service is available

If this place is part of a chain, consider using branch=* to uniquely identify the town or street where it's located.
