As a child of the late 1980s and early 1990s, I’d be a huge liar if I said I didn’t spend my fair share of time in fast food restaurants growing up.

I used to hit all the classics: McDonald’s, Burger King, Long John Silver’s, and my personal favorite, White Castle.

White Castle, oh how I long for thee…oh sorry, I didn’t mean to say that out loud.

But the point is that the 1980s and ’90s were the Golden Age for fast food joints, and people really have a lot of strong memories about them.

Apparently, a lot of these tweets got rolling because folks on Twitter were talking about how Wendy’s used to be yellow and things went from there.

Let’s take a trip back in time with these fast food tweets.

1. I want all of this right now.

Probably not good for the gut, though.

2. I still remember the first Subway I ever went to.

It was a magical journey.

3. The yellow Wendy’s…

Do you remember?


4. The best of the best.

The jukebox was pretty solid, too!


5. Wild ’90s colors all over the place.

Feels like an episode of Saved by the Bell.


6. There are a lot of cool McDonald’s locations out there.

A lot of stuff went down in those Playlands.

7. Styrofoam for days.

They weren’t too concerned about the environment back then…

8. I do not remember the McDLT.

I missed this one somehow.


9. Oh man, this was some good stuff.

It was always nice and greasy!

10. Check out that ashtray!

And those old Taco Bell wrappers!


11. Going wayyyy back with this one.

You never forget your first time.

12. Kind of wild to think about this now.

That was a lot of fun!


Okay, time to spill the beans…

What’s your favorite fast food restaurant?
