Although I'm an American, my ethnic roots on my father's side is Scottish. I don't consider haggis or any of the multitude of savory pies to be fast food.
There's a saying about the Scottish cuisine, "If it moves, or even it doesn't, deep-fry it in batter.."
So I would have to say "Fish & Chips" to be the most likely candidate... especially liberally sprinkled with Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar!

I am going to say taqueria food. Tacos and Burritos etc.
The Mexicans were here in Calofornia before the white man so I think they qualify for indiginous. I also I don't know of any Fast food other than Beef Jerky and fry bread that are a Native American original. California also had real early Russian settlers but but I don't know much about their food either.

Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

burger kings western bacon cheeseburger. that is american food. probably has cousins in other countries but not the original. only "fast" food burger i will eat.

i agree with the mexican food thing, but no fast food place has anything close to the original . well maybe the place i can buy fish tacos, but that is pretty much americanized too.

Nobody thinks of this as fast food, but it is certainly served up quickly, is not very good for you, and is insanely delicious. I think that those criteria are standard for fast food. I'm talking Cold Stone Ice Cream. You know, the stuff blended on ice-cold stone and served up in the cone of your choice.

Favorite hot fast food, steamed kielbasa on a roll with pickle relish, horseradish, sliced onion, spicy mustard, and ketchup. Or better yet, pulled pork with a honey-mustard barbecue sauce and cole slaw all on a whole wheat bun. Or is my favorite, freshly caught yellow perch, fillets, pan fried, with fried potato rounds in a sandwich with ketchup? Hmmm. I gotta think about it.

Cheese toasties for meee! But if someone else's making it, then Welsh Rarebit comes first.

My favorite fast food would have to be McDonald's sausage biscuits. Usually a dollar. Even better would have been the sausage McGriddle. I love the taste of sausage with syrup and pancakes.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I guess I prefer medium or fatty "smoked meat" to poutine. But it has to come from Abie's, less than two blocks from my house, or from Restaurant La Main on the "Plateau" in Montreal.
