In a city obsessed with food and tech, it makes sense that San Francisco is home to some of the most forward-thinking counter service restaurants around. Whether it's a robot-run quinoa spot (not kidding) or an elevated burger joint, "fast food" in this town has an entirely different meaning.
Between everyone being in a rush and the city's staffing shortage, restaurants have adapted their service models to get fresh, high-quality meals out the door quickly and affordably. These 26 spots to grab a meal are all places that use fresh ingredients and won't keep you waiting, with meals that vary from salads and sandwiches to tacos and falafel. The food on this list may be fast, but it's certainly not your average unidentifiable fast food.
