  • I wish they’d stop presenting this as some new idea nobody ever thought of. Horn and Hardart was doing this in 1905.

    • To be fair, this concept is only slightly like an automat. From what I understand, your food is made to order before being placed into the box that flashes your name.

  • I guess along with all cab drivers and truckers, all restaurant employees should re-train themselves to “code.”

    • Not yet. People still make the food in the back (for now) and assist guests in the front if needed. I can’t imagine it’s not incredibly boring for them though.
