The closest fast food to me is BK. I can get there in less than five minutes on my scooter. If I am going to sit at the beach right across the street from them, I get a large soda. And since the soda dispenser is self-serve, I would get a large, very little ice. No food. If you eat at the beach, you are inundated with sea gulls.
On the other hand, Pirate has a friend who thinks Bk is gourmet food. And he has the waistline to prove it.
