What is your favorite meal to eat at a restaurant?

So often we love to go out to eat, we got out to eat for many different reasons.  Sometimes we go out to celebrate special birthdays, sometimes we go out to celebrate a promotion, or sometimes we go out to impress someone on a date.  Sometimes we go out because we don’t want to cook and clean up the kitchen.  Do you have a particular time of day that you like to go out for a meal?

Alton Brown's Perfect PancakesPersonally I love to go out for breakfast, for me cooking pancakes, while not difficult is tedious.  I like to keep all of the pancakes warm, and serve them at once.  If I want to add eggs or some turkey sausage I find my timing is often off, and something is going to get cold.  I like all of my food hot, when I serve it and for me, going out for breakfast is the perfect meal to go to a restaurant for.

How about you?  What meal do you enjoy having out?  When is your favorite time of day to go out for a meal.  We all love restaurants, what time of day could we find you in a restaurant?

    I love to eat at Joey D’s Oak Room in Atlanta Georgia. They have great food, but my absolutely favorite is there grilled chicken salad with the most delicious honey mustard dressing and served with butter croissants drizzled with a honey buttered sauce…that are to die for!

    Spaghetti and meatballs from Bobaloo’s in Key West Florida……So much like Momma used to make…I ate it and went back before I left to get an order to take home with me.

    I love eating out anytime, but I especially enjoy a great seafood restaurant with an ocean view. Seafood Fra Diablo at Legal Seafood is a great weakness, (still waiting for a copykat recipe).

    I love Quiznos Honey Bourbon Chicken Sub Sandwich

    Dinner or appetizers. Actually I could make an entire meal out of an appetizer alone.

    I was thinking about this yesterday as I scarfed down half of my boyfriend’s side at lunch–french fries! Something I would never make at home, but usually eat before anything else at a restaurant.

    I love these answers. You know i think Lunch is the second most favorite meal of the day for me. It is often the same food as dinner but costs so much less.

    I enjoy going out to eat at the
    Golden Corral Buffet & Grill in Spokane WA They are reasonable priced for senior like me. I also enjoy the Timber Creek Grill Buffet, Spokane Valley, WA :

    I like to go out at lunch. It’s great to get out of the office for an hour. And I like to be able to eat with my coworkers. I’m just discovering my lunch options at the new job, but am looking forward to that and to stopping into one of the cool places for dinner after work from time to time.

    Definately breakfast! My absolutely most favorite place is Mother’s in Portland, Oregon. A wide variety and absolutely the best recipes. They don’t rely on quantity to please but quality makes it the best.

  • Jacki

    When I go out to eat, I usually just get a plain salad w/ no dressing or dressing on the side. I don’t get to see what’s going into my food, so I want to be sure I’m getting something healthy.

    I love to eat out for dinner. Some of my favorites are Applebees veggie patch pizza, and by moving to California some great foods are Pick Up Stixs house special chicken, cream cheese wontons and In and Out Burgers grill cheese sandwich. The grill cheese is great, it’s on a toasted hamburger bun, has cheese, lettuce, spread(thousand island), with tomato and onion (which I leave off). It’s so good.
    Additionally since I’ve moved and miss Cracker Barrels dumplings.

    My favorite is to go to a Chinese buffet. I like to go mid afternoon when I can have the whole place (it seems) to myself. I love to first go and sample each appetizer I have never had and then go back and sample the other foods. By the time I decide on my meal, the sampling has filled me up! But what fun to try all the various foods (including American dishes).

    I will go out for breakfast any time of the day or night. It can be a deluxe brunch buffet or a truck stop, it doesn’t matter as long as I can get beakfast.

  • Nancy L

    I’m like you – breakfast is easy to cook, but not if you want everything ready at one time. I love having a nice hot breakfast. But the second best time to go out is when I’m just too darned tired to cook and hubby suggests we go out for dinner…he can be so sweet!

  • Tami

    I love eating breakfast for all meals! And I love eating Bacon Egg and Cheese Burgers from IHOP!

    I’m a lunch person. I love a good sandwich and am always on the hunt for the perfect chicken salad on a perfectly toasted, homemade croissant.
