Strictly speaking, a restaurant is a place where you sit, order a meal and eat it in comfort. The idea of fast food is that you perch on your stool, munch rapidly, and leave soon. You are sitting, you are eating, but there the similarity to a restaurant ends. You won't see people sitting in fast food joings for pleasure or leisure, despite the parties for kids often held there.

By definition a restaurant is an establishment where customers come to purchase food. They can also dine-in in some restaurants. Fast food places are considered to be restaurants because they serve food to the customers. The customers purchased food there. Also, some customers will eat their food at the tables in the fast food restaurant. The only reason some people may disagree with placing fast food places in restaurants may be due to the customers who pick up the food through the drive-thru.

If a person went to a friend’s house and paid money for a cake that the friend made, people would probably not consider the friend’s house to be a restaurant. However, the friend’s house was not built for that intended purpose.
