Fast food? Sit down family resturant? Buffet? Our favorate is a buffet chain lately when we do go out. I think mainly because the quality of food is pretty decent. And my hubby is a steak fanatic and he usually I kid you not gets like 4 steaks (included in cost) and it's definatly worth it cause he eats more in steak for the price than we could afford to buy in the store. And of course having kids you need somewhere that has a variety that everyone likes something on the menu.

Yes ma'am. I prefer going to restaurants which have buffet lunches and dinners. I don't eat meat. I like seafood and variety of vegetables. So, at a buffet, I can make selections I like. I enjoy soup and salad too. And, after the main items, I would go for a variety of desserts, ice cream, cheese cakes, fruits. Yummy, yummy ! And ofcourse, wouldn't skip my favorite decaf coffee with lots of cream and sugar.

I prefer fast food restaurants over fine dining. Not only are the food cheaper in fast food restaurants, they are also more of my taste. My second option would be the buffet-style restaurant where I can eat as much as I can. These restaurants in my country are famously known as "eat all you can" restaurants.

I prefer sit down type resturant, although our budget rarely allows. I am a huge fan of a 2 of the local mexican resturants. I love the atmosphere and the food. It is a good time going with family and having a couple margaritas, eating good food and just enjoying each other. My second would be buffet, more specifically the locally casino buffet. It's only $10 a person and they have EVERY type of food you can think of mexican, pizza, chinese, southern comfort foods. Just EVERYTHING you could possibly imagine. And it's delish! I could eat myself sick in there every time. lol. I have to prectice self control cause everything looks so could I would just start piling my plate!

We tend to go more towards the family sit-down type of restaurants. My littlest is 2.5 years old and the idea of taking him through a buffet to pick what he wants to eat is a little overwhelming to me. When we go to sit-down restaurants we are simply able to show him the pictures of the meals that are offered on the kid's menu and he is able to tell us which one he would like to eat. Now, I love a buffet and when he gets a little bit older, I think we will be able to go more often, but for now, the other option works better for us.

I prefer buffet restaurant also. Sometimes it's perfect to introduce new dishes to my children. And you get appetizer, main meal and dessert and all kind of drinks. Best of all there are no waiting ! Sometimes it suck when you go to regular restaurant, you wait until you being seated, and then wait again until the waiter tcome and take your order, and another wait until they bring out your meal, and another wait just to get your bill.

Well although I rarely go out to eat and don't have a family I prefer sit down family restaurants. They tend to serve up good old fashioned wholesome grub rather than airy fairy fashionable foods. Plus for me going out for a meal is usually a special occassion so I want to enjoy everything from the service to the food which you don't tend to get with fast food outlets or buffet style places.

I like to go to buffets as well. Fast food and other restaurants are fine, however, in my opinion, buffets have a lot more variety of foods, which is convienent for my family since nearly everyone is picky about food. Also, buffets just seem to fill up everyone's stomachs, compared to the foods from other out-to-eat restaurants. It's also fun to estimate how much money's worth you've eaten ~ :) And you can eat a whole meal (main, side, dessert) too ~

That would depend on who accompany me to the restaurant. If it's my family, I can either choose a fast food or family restaurant, depending on the occassion. Fast food is good when you want something good to eat and there's kids along. Besides, not all fast food are junks. If I am just going with my partner, I would pick any romantic restaurant with a la carte. But sometimes we just hit the fast food

My favorite are Italian restaurants that serves pasta. I'm a big pasta lover especially pizzas. Every time our family goes out I always suggest to eat at italian restaurants.

I have to go with buffet cause you can try foods that you don't know what they taste like and if you don't like it you can always get something else.

Mainly fast food because it is very convenient and much cheaper than sitdown family restaurant. It depends on your lifestyle and budget.If your celebrating an occasion, it is more practical to dine in a sit-down restaurant. But for your everyday meal or simply you're craving for a certain kind of food, fast food is the better choice.

I definitely am a huge fan of buffet styled restaurants. It is purely simple, quick, cheap, and normally is quite delicious! Normally when we go out to eat, we hate having to wait for the waitress, and normally we have to because they run off somewhere and dont come back most of the time, so buffet all the way!

For a family, I must agree, a buffet is the perfect place to take everyone. We are a family of 6 people, me, my adult daughter and her partner and my daughters three sons and the buffet with its variety is perfect for that family group. Unfortunately we don't get to go out much because of lack of money so its fast food generally when we do get to go out. For myself, my favorite two places to eat are at two specific restaurants. I like the Olive Garden but my favorite place to eat is a local place, Bill Lee's Chinese Food. It's my total favorite and has been for years and years. But I actually prefer to buy the food as take out and take it home and eat it. That way I can mix it all together the way I like it and then eat some and save the rest for my next meal. I love doing that and its become comfort food to me.

I live in NYC so Little Italy is pretty awesome. It's not very expensive but feels pretty classy. Food also is pretty tasty. There's also this Brazilian steak house in Manhattan called Plataforma. I highly recommend it.
