Why do they call it fast food? Because most of it tastes so incredibly bad, fasting is precisely what it inspires.

But lo and behold, the exception has arrived — and big snaps to Quincy natives Nick Kesaris and Spiro Kouvlis for pulling it off. They’ve just opened UBurger, Boston’s long-overdue answer to West Coast cult fave In-n-Out.

Okay, health food it’s not. But carnivores all over town will rejoice in their made-to-order, USDA-approved, freshly ground (yes, in-house) burgers. Specialty numbers include quarter-pound, two-fisted affairs like the Boom Burger, dripping with chipotle sauce, cheddar, and fried jalapenos.

There are also hand-cut fries, all-beef Kayem hot dogs, and specialty drinks — none of which are frozen (except the extra-thick frappes, of course) or subjected to heat lamp or microwave hell before hitting your plate.

So is it still fast food? Sure, technically.

Meaning get there. Fast.
