There is already a fully automated McDonald's. Only 2 humans work there and neither does anything to take orders or deliver orders. Their only job is to maintain the robots/computers.

I believe that this job will be taken over mainly because, in McDonalds, they already have automated cashiers which is cool but robots can mess up in the process and i would not trust being given food by a robot
