Definition: Febo is an institution in the Netherlands. This fast food company offers snacks from a wall lined with coin operated machines. Simply insert your coin, open a little window and retrieve the hot snack of your choice. Snacks sold in these automats include croquettes (meat ragout in a deep fried crumb crust), frikandellen (a skinless minced meat sausage), kaassouffle's (runny cheese in a deep fried crumb crust) or hamburgers. The snacks are prepared in a kitchen behind the wall and the windows are regularly restocked. Snacks, like fries, that aren't suitable for sale in the window format can be purchased from a service counter.
Also Known As: Snackbar (Febo is one kind of snackbar - there are other chains too)
Examples:Many people use Febo as a generic term for getting a takeaway: Even een Febo'tje halen.
