So, mind a wandering, which Fast Food hamburger restaurant was started first in the United States?
Specifically, one that is relatively nationwide, and still around?
Via Wikipedia*, the following list was compiled, by me, and sorted by date:
Dairy Queen 1940
Carl’s Jr 1941
Tommy Burger 1946
In and Out Burger 1948
Jack in the Box 1951
Burger King 1953
Taco Bell 1962
Del Taco 1964
Red Robin 1969
* I understand Wikipedia is able to be changed by ANYone, heck, I’ve changed it myself (see here). So yes, I take it with a grain of salt. However, it’s quick and easy, and if there is anything to dispute here, please comment and let me know.
