And why do I love it so much?
What is the longest you have waited in line to eat at a restaurant/food truck/kiosk? I mean a regular, every day line, such as one for Shake Shack or Kogi.
I am not talking about camping out at the newest Chick Fil A to get a year's worth of food.
I am also not talking about the 90 minute wait to get into Cheesecake Factory on a Friday.
Is the wait part of the experience? Would the food not be as good without the wait?
Many cities have restaurants that have prices that are throwback to the past. I am talking quality food too, not $.99 pizza slices in NYC that you eat when drunk.
In Dallas, here are a couple:
Dunston's Steakhouse: 5oz bacon wrapped petit filet mignon, and any two: Cup of Soup, Salad Bar (one trip), Baked Potato, Fresh Green Beans, Rice Pilaf, French Fries or Veggie of the Day...$9.95
Antoine's: Original po-boy sandwich with ham, German salami, Provolone cheese, mayonnaise, chow-chow and pickles on fresh baked bread...$2.99
or as a daily special with chips and a 12oz Pepsi...$3.99
Keller's Drive In: Number 5 double cheese burger $2, fries $1.10 and a bottle of beer (that you can drink in your car) $1.65: total $4.75
What are some examples that you have run across recently?
A couple of years ago, at a Cracker Barrel, I order Chicken and Dumplings, with a side of mac & cheese and mashed potatoes and gravy.
I then proceeded to sleep for three days straight.
According to Forbes' America's 30 Most Visited Cities, Orlando (47.8 million) outranks Las Vegas (38.9 million) for annual visitors. Because of the amount of tourists and business travelers (#4 for most conventioners), it would seem reasonable that Orlando would have more high end restaurants, i.e. Las Vegas.
Granted, I understand that Orlando caters more to families than Las Vegas, but still, the disparity seems extreme.
I pulled up in front of our house at the same time as the pizza delivery dude. In the front seat of his truck was what I assume was his wife and his young son in a carseat. I guess it was take your family to work day.
I guess his wife had to hold the pie on the way to our house.
Anyone ever experienced anything like that?
I broke down and tipped the guy $10 and a juice box.
