Best New Fast Food Place 

Amanda's

Businesses on Shattuck have been opening and closing their doors quite quickly in recent years, but hopefully this new veggie-friendly fast-food joint is here to stay. Open only since last summer, Amanda's typically attracts a good-sized, steady crowd throughout the day with a menu of indulgent yet not-horrible-for-you versions of fast-food treats: naturally raised beef and chicken burgers, homemade vegetable patties, and baked sweet-potato fries. As part of Eat Well, a program of the Berkeley Health and Human Services Department, Amanda's avoids using artificial ingredients, trans fat, and corn syrup, and flavors their house-made sodas and chocolate milks with agave and stevia. Besides being nutritious, the food is palatable (and not just by health-food standards) and completely reasonable for those on a college student budget: $3.75 gets you a juicy, grass-fed beef or homemade veggie burger. Not quite the McDonald's dollar menu, but Amanda's makes good fresh fast food available to people who can't stomach yuppified prices.
