Unique Fast Food Styles ?

My picks are;;

Daphne's Greek Cafe in California www.daphnesgreekcafe.com
Need I say more, I had to research the meaning of a half dozen menu items. tasty, cheap. different, grab a franchise!

Pat and Oscar's So.Cal www.breadstick.com
Interesting mix of pizza,chicken,salads,sandos
The feature is the breadsticks...40 cents.

    I would think that Sakkio Japan which is found at many malls would qualify. I truly enjoy their terraki chicken with their fresh steamed veggies and rice. I usually get and extra scooop of the sauce. I always use two packets of soy sauce.

    I qualify them as unique as everything is made fresh and cooked for you while you watch. That includes the chicken and veggies.

    steven, I've been to both places, and I LOVE Daphnes (the 1/2 chicken is incredible, and I love their "fire pita" sauce on the side......I've been to a few of their locations, particularly their Torrance/Manhattan Beach, CA one.....(I was living in Hawthorne, CA at the time)

    Pat and Oscars was unique, like you said.....I stumbled upon their Irvine, CA location, and enjoyed sitting outside...
    I believe I got the half chicken there as well....pretty good, (although I love Dahpnes better! Daphnes rocks, and their employees really seem to take pride; they got that Daphnes newsletter I always grab listing all the new locations and employee awards, etc...

    Jollibee: A Philippino burger chain with 10 outlets in CA that offers such wonders as "Manila spaghetti" (hot dogs, ham, ground beef in a sweet/spicey tomato sauce topped with slivers of cheddar cheese), banana jackfruit pie and "guimataan" (a warm concoction of tropical fruits in sweet coconut milk). http://www.jollibee.com.ph/corporate/us_products.htm

    Cha Am Thai Express: A Bay Area mini-chain offering Thai fast food including most of the Thai staples such as a sweetish but yummy Tom Kha Gai (chicken/galanga/coconut/lemongrass soup).

    Chabuya: An outpost in West LA of a Japanese Ramen chain. Don't think what they serve has any resemblance at all to what's in those 10 for $1 packages at the supermarket.

    But it isn't there anymore. I think they still have at least one location in Daly City (large Philippino community there) but Cha Am took over at 4th and Howard.

    Is Tony Packo's considered fast food? Chili. fried pickles and stuffed cabbage is an unuasual combination.

    Sakkio is the only place I will eat at our mall. I too have them add extra sause. The veggies are great and I alternate between steamed or fried rice.

    There is a Daphne's Greek Cafe in Pleasant Hill (CA). I'll have to try their chicken (the only times I've been there was when I was craving Gyros).

    Daphne's Greek Cafe is fast food, but not that fast of food. It is an order at the counter and they bring it to your table type of place.

    There is a Chinese place down the street with the same setup. It is called Yan Can and owned (or partially owned) by Martin Yan of TV fame. It was supposed to be the first of a chain, but the food is so-so and it looks like it will always be a chain of one.

    Hah!
    Where I used to live in Merritt Island, Fl, there is a little "restaurant", which is a converted drive thru photo shop.
    It is called Sinbads, and serve's Mediterranean food.. You can get a gyro on the fly, in addtion to souvlaki and many other items. Great food...Drive thru or walk up, like a Checkers....But they do have picnic tables set up in a grassy area so you dont have to have sauce running down your arm as you drive...

    I would think it wouldn't be hard to offer a gyro in a drive through. They're pretty darn easy to put together.
    I don't think I'd actually eat it IN the car...messy messy messy. But, grab it for home. There must be a market for that. Someone please, start a greek or mediterranean drive through in DC!
