Drive-thu times are slowing down.
That's according to an annual study by Fast food industry trade publication "QSR magazine."
It measures the average drive-thru speed, from order to pick-up, at the top seven fast food restaurants.
It found the average time is nearly 181-seconds, down about eight seconds from last year's average, which was nearly 173-seconds.
Chick-Fil-A was the slowest, with an average time of nearly 204-seconds.
The overall slowdown is mostly the result of more and more complex new products being offered at fast food chains.
