I learned a long time ago, go inside and keep an eye on the food and the people making it. If you can't see it, eat elsewhere. Definitely don't go through the drive-thru.

My wife is a die-hard drive-through user. I am a die-hard “go inside” kinda guy.

On a related note, when I moved to California to Texas, it was strange that walk-up ATMs were so rare. In California, a drive-through ATM was the exception, not the rule.

I'd save more calories by not going out for fast food than the 10 (maybe, perhaps less) that I'll burn by walking 20 feet across a parking lot...

And, sometimes when the drive-through is slow, so is the inside. There's still only one kitchen. Many is the time I've seen a long drive-through line and gone in instead... I just stand in line inside for 20 minutes instead. (I save the gas, though.)

Starbucks does this as well. I go through the drive through on workdays and on the weekend I will go in. It never takes me more than 10-15 minutes to get through the drive through even when it is busy. The last time I went inside, it took me 20 minutes to get through the line and get my order because they’d forgotten a part of it. I know at the local Chick Fil A and Portillos, they have people helping with the drive through line. The inside at Portillos can take 30 minutes just to get to the front of the line!

Chick-fil-A ‘s parking is the problem
If you park,when you want to leave, all the cars in the drive thru block you from leaving
I have seen this flawed layout across the county
That’s why I usually use drive thru.

Thanks for the replies. I have new insights now why some people use the drive through. I'm just a guy inside type person like a couple people here, but I respect those that stay in their cars, and now see some reasons why.

I know it might be easier for anyone with a family to stay in the car, but I always get out of the car and run in. The more we move, the better, and I usually find it is quicker too. It's also easier to check the order.

Drive throughs are there for a reason, why would I judge people for using them?

I've never had Chik-fil-a in my life, should I mock you for eating there?

Can't believe this bothers/mystifies anyone to the point they create a web forum thread about it. Or, that it needs to be explained to them. Even worse, that I replied to it!
