Waaaay better than fast food? Wendy's?

I haven't been to a Wendy's in a few years....but I am confused by their current slogan: "Waaaay better than fast food?"

Since when is Wendy's not fast food? It seems like they are doing some different things than other chains (like using all fresh beef, and grilling burgers to order), but I guess I am curious where people draw the line between fast food and non-fast-food.

For example, is In-N-Out Burger fast food? I would say's not pre-made food, like McDonalds, but I would still categorize this as fast food.

My question is not rhetorical - I'm curious to hear various people's opinions on what "fast food" is, and which restaurants would not be categorized that way.

Any thoughts?
