Family-Style Restaurants… I don’t get’em

family-style restaurants

You know what makes me sick?  You know what makes me so mad I just wanna swap underpants with a homeless guy?

Now – before I was explaining to you what qualifies a restaurant to be called ‘fancy’ – at least to me.  That’s any restaurant that has ‘specials’ that are not on the menu.

Now I’m gonna tell you the kind of restaurant that confuses the hell out of me.  And don’t get upset… because a lot of stuff confuses me.  This would be your ‘family-style’ restaurant.  I know there are wonderful family-style restaurants out there – probably run by wonderful families.   Now – let’s say you been setting around a table all week with your old lady throwing bowls a beans and taters in front of you.  She’s got some fried chicken… maybe a big plate a biscuits.

And you go – ‘You know what?  Let’s try something different.  Let’s go to the family-style restaurant where we sit around a table and they throw bowls of beans and taters and some fried chicken in front of us.’

In fact – the number one reason families go out to eat – okay – it’s because momma  don’t want to cook.  But the number two reason is – okay – that’s because it’s payday – and that’s what you do.   But the number three reason families go out to eat… because we don’t all have to get the same thing. You can get the chicken fried steak… your old lady is getting the lasagna… kids is getting burgers and spaghetti.   You’re all still eating together… but you’re all eating different.  It’s kind of decadent when you think about it.

Plus – when it gets to the table – it’s your food – on your plate.  It’s like who died and made you king???   Yeah – don’t tell me that don’t feel good.

Wake up, America!!!  If we wanted to sit around a table and all eat the same food – why wouldn’t we stay home?  Where we could argue without other people staring… and wearing pants would be optional?  I’m Earl Pitts, American.  Check out my YouTube channel – Earl Pitts by Earl Pitts.  And Pitts Off.
