The ACFC Drive-Thru is a chain of fast food restaurants in the Life is Strange universe. It originally appears in Arcadia Bay, the setting of the first game, and makes reappearances in the second season.

Life is Strange

Two restaurant buildings can be spotted throughout the game, but neither is explorable. One of the restaurants is located on the Arcadia Bay Ave that runs parallel to the bay's coastline, across from the Two Whales Diner and next to Tony's Liquor Store. The other building is visible during Max's bus ride in Episode 2.

Episode Two - "Out of Time"

On the way to the Two Whales Diner, a restaurant can be briefly seen through the window of the Blackwell Academy school bus. It has a menu plastered to the glass, and three newspaper kiosks nearby.

Another restaurant building can be seen near the diner itself, across the street. If the player tries to reach it by foot, Max will stop and say that she doesn't want to go there.

Episode Three - "Chaos Theory"

The player can once again see both restaurant buildings; the second one is visible during a cutscene in Chloe's truck.

Episode Five - "Polarized"

Both buildings have been wrecked by the tornado hitting Arcadia Bay. The logo of one has been blown off and is lying on the road.

ACFC diner receipt from Season 2.

In the first episode of the second season, an ACFC "diner receipt" dated the previous day (10/29/2016) can be found in Sean Diaz's backpack when he sets up camp with Daniel Diaz at Nisqually River in Mount Rainier National Park. They were served to burgers and shakes by a cashier called Alice.



  • The name of the drive-thru seems to be a reference to the fast food restaurant Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) that specializes in fried chicken. The ACFC Drive-Thru's logo is a turkey in reference to that.
  • The "ACFC" in the restaurant's name might also be a reference to the rock band AC/DC.
  • The two restaurant buildings in Arcadia Bay are in fact near each other; this can be inferred from comparing screenshots of the diner street in Episode 3 and Episode 5.
