I wouldent exactly call Taco Bell, Quiznos, Green Cactus, McDonald's, Wendy's, Nathan's, White Castle, Burger King, KFC, Popeye's, etc a small selection. In fact, we have enough fast food chains here on LI I could go to a different one for lunch and not have to visit the same chain more then once a month. Granted the further east on Long Island you go the less variety you have. Heck, past Southampton you have none at all since the East End towns (except for Riverhead and Southampton) have a ban on chain stores and restaurants.

I have traveled a bit and I have been to some places where McDonalds is the only fast food place for miles around. Heck, when I went skiing upstate in the Catskills I don't recall see any fast food places period. Logically maybe they had a few in Kingston and Oneonta but I don't recall seeing any.

What do all the above mentioned places have in common?

They are all outdated.

Not a bad selection by any means, but here in Palm Beach county, Florida we must have 3 times that amount. It's pretty great. (no insult AT ALL meant against anyone here - I'm born and raised Long Islander, too.!)
This is a great thread - loved the JIB in Port Jeff and the one in Deer Park.....Wetson's too! (I'm 52 so I have plenty of good memories there!)
