Restaurant Rant

I have a theory.

I think that restaurants can only be good at so many things.  Meaning, if you go to a restaurant and it has a catalog for a menu, you are in trouble.  If they serve anything from pancakes, pizza, stir fry to quiche, burritos, and hot dogs there is NO WAY they can be good at all that stuff.  You are guaranteed a questionable meal.

If you are an Italian restaurant-- serve Italian.  Stick to your theme people!  If I sit down to eat and they hand me a menu the size of a phone book-- I'm out! 

I like to go to places like In N Out.  They only do one thing-- burgers and they have perfected that like nobody's business.  Jamba Juice, they do smoothies and oh can they do smoothies.  Sprinkles, they do cupcakes and you know they do them well.

When a restaurant is bold enough to keep their menu limited you know they are serious about the quality of their product.  They mean business and you are going to be happy with it.

Don't even bother me with your Cheesecake Factories (they should just stick to the cheesecake cause that's what they can do) and your Claim Jumpers (they should stick with their chocolate cake and shrink that menu a bit).  I can't handle all the variety.  It makes me question the quality.

I'm not picky-- I just want to be wow-ed by something good.  Is that too much to ask?

I AGREE!!! I tell my Hubbs that all the time, "This is a burger joint - order, ummm a burger! Not the eggplant parmesan" I do like the cheesecake factory though, but I order simple stuff they can't botch up.

I agree!

Really, I try to think of something smart to add, but you said it all...

If I am hungry for a burger I go to IN and OUT and I know I will get the best burger in town. If I grow to a Mexican place no hot dog there will be good. You are right on this count.
