While the poke craze has been growing exponentially as of late, we just can't help but grab some at least once a week. The problem is at the end of the day, we just don't want to get out the car just to pick up food on the way home.
The solution: Drive-thru poke.
Fins Poke Fusion, prominent in Mission Viejo, CA, just opened a new location in downtown Fullerton, CA. What sets the fast-casual restaurant apart from the original location, and other poke spots for that matter, is that they offer... A DRIVE THRU.
Before Fins settled in the current space, a taqueria with a drive-thru window built in was the previous occupant. Fins' owners saw this as an asset and decided to keep the convenient feature for their new restaurant.
We spoke to Moby Duncan, one of the three owners of Fins, who said that he knows customers only have a set amount of time to place their orders and get back to work or be on their way home. Because he stands by the quality of the fish, Duncan decided to turn the drive-thru into something Fins could capitalize on.
"We want to be the In-N-Out of poke," he said.
While you have to go inside to get the full customizable experience of the restaurant, the drive-thru menu lets patrons order from six predetermined bowls. The bowls are then made to order and ready within 3-5 minutes.
In the world of seafood, the fresher the better.
