There's something quintessentially modern about drive throughs. The convenience of cheap, ultra processed food, handed through a window by an anonymous worker, all without setting foot outside of your car. It's a beautiful thing really. Whether your mom is taking you home after baseball practice, or you are taking yourself out for a midnight snack (Ed note: please don't say ‘Fourth Meal’) we all have unique and fond drive through memories.

It's hard to imagine life without the option of a drive-through. You likely can name off fast-food chains quicker than you can list your own cousins. 

Despite their popularity, there's a lot more to drive throughs than meets the eye. For example, we bet you didn't know there's not even that many of them. There are actually more museums in the United States than there are McDonald's drive throughs. 

Here are 14 fast-food-related facts, to get to know your greasy family even better.
