A faster way to grab a burger and fries without reaching for your actual wallet.

A new kind of payment method is made available for drive-thru orders, making it easier for people on the East Coast to grab their food and go. iDriveThru lets fast-fooders use E-ZPass devices — which are hocked up to their credit or debit card information entered online — to pay for their meals at the window.

Five Wendy's restaurants in Staten Island have adopted this approach, and are fairly satisfied with the results. The perks about this program is that customers can accumulate points, which can be redeemed for food discounts in future orders.
