9. Burger King Table Service
For some inexplicable reason, in the early 1990s Burger King tried to appeal to families looking for a more full-service experience. The logic doesn’t seem to make sense, but they believed adding table service to fast food would draw a more high-class crowd.
The table service was complemented by the addition of ‘Dinner Baskets’ which were essentially combo meals served in a slightly more elegant way. The baskets could include things like the classic Whopper, or new short-lived items like fried clams and shrimp.
To make the meal a complete fine dining experience, people were also given popcorn to snack on while they waited for their food.
