11 Photos Of '90s Fast Food Restaurants That Will Bring Back So Many Delicious Memories

- Page 1

Growing up, there were very few things that got us as excited as when our parents told us that they were taking us out to our favorite fast food joint. While the food and the affordable prices played a huge role, there were many other things that these eateries offered that made us obsessed with them. McDonald's Play Places, anyone?

Many fast food restaurants in the 90s had cool and vibrant interiors that made them even more inviting. However, as the world changed, so did most of these restaurants' brands, appearances, and menus.

We don't truly realize just how much so many of them have changed until we look back at old photos.

Check out these photos of the interiors of our favorite fast food restaurants that will hit you right in your 90s childhood feels:

1. McDonald's

Once upon a time, walking into a McDonald's lifted a kid's spirits not only because of the food, but because of everything else within the golden arches.

The interiors were brightly painted and decorated, and the 'Play Places' contained everything we needed to enjoy a few hours of fun. Some locations even had game consoles like the Nintendo 64.

Over time, the fast food giant decided to transform its restaurant and move away from the clownish theme. These days, McDonald's minimalist design resembles a coffee shop more than a burger joint.

2. Subway

There was a period in the mid-90s when Subway dominated the sandwich scene. The restaurant was so popular that it was featured in a scene in the 1996 movie Happy Gilmore. They gave out some of the coolest toys with their kids meals, and they used to cut their bread differently.

I can already smell the freshly baked bread just by looking at the the neon yellow seats and New York City subway map wallpaper in the photo.

3. Chick-fil-A

The restaurant's original chicken sandwich and waffle fries used to be served in a different-looking setting. Since the 90s, the chicken joint's color scheme has been slightly altered and they've been secretly making their menu healthier.
