Robo Food

Rube Goldberg meets Outback Steakhouse (or whichever)
  [vote for,

Rube Golberg type restaurant where the patrons essentially walk into a giant, building sized automated food making / vending machine.

Touch screens at each table for ordering...

Then the place makes your dinner and a ceiling mounted conveyor carries to your table.

All the machinery moving around would be sort an entertaining center piece in the building.

       This is much better than the title would suggest.   

       Back in the day, there used to be this fantastic pizza place in Indiana called 'The Cardinal Music Palace.' They had an organ that rose out of the floor and was wired to every type of instrument you could think of.   

       I think the place is now a Deja Vu strip club. Too bad they sold the organ...

       "giant, building sized automated food making / vending machine" - visions of the sheep processor in Wallace and Grommit, and the chicken processor in Chcken Run. Perhaps this should be called Sweeney Todd's?

       I coulda swore I read almost this exact idea about a year ago.   

       Is the food cooked by robots?

       By the way, that place in Indiana that [RayfordSteele] mentioned... I grew up in Indiana, and I think I know the place he's talking about. Distant, childhood memories.
