There's no skating involved, the employees just walk the food to you on a tray.
There would always be a few on skates at some of their Austin and Dallas locations.
My favorite burger chain is Whataburger: great burgers and fries at reasonable prices, and, more importantly, it's open 24 hours. Same thing goes for Taco Cabana as far as faux-Mexican places go. I worked in bars last year, and I'd average 3-5 meals at each joint a week because they'd be the only late night/early morning options.
TC is, bar none, the best fast food place in the world. It's always my first stop when visiting TX and my last stop before leaving. I could eat there breakfast (bacon, egg & cheese tacos), lunch (fajita tacos), and dinner (more fajita tacos and dos equis) for days on end.
