My Favorite Restaurants
As far back as I can remember, I have always liked going out to eat. Two of my favorite restaurants are Chevy’s and McDonald’s. Though both places are to dine in they have their differences in their ambience, waiting, and expense. When deciding where to go to eat, I have three things to think about. I must consider the atmosphere or where I want to go. The amount of time I have is another consideration. The amount of money that I am able to spend is a big influence.
The atmosphere at Chevy’s is casual, and it is where people come to spend several hours. Chevy’s has a waiting room with long, leather-topped benches to sit on while waiting. Some tables are round and some are long rectangles, so everything can fit on them. The music is usually alternative or Country is playing at a medium level. Sometimes customers can barely hear the person sitting right next them. Laughter is present, and usually a large variety of people are sitting all around. The bar has smoking and non-smoking section.
At McDonald’s, the surroundings are quite different from those at Chevy’s. When dining in, people are seated small booths. The tables are not big enough for everything so tables may have be moved together, people may have to sit apart or some food may have to be left in the bag. Sometimes there are greasy and wet floors. Unlike Chevy’s, McDonald’s customers are usually in a rush. They come in order their food and storm out. McDonald’s usually has some elevator music playing at a decent level yet people are always shouting at each other. As a result, people planning to eat at Chevy’s want to consider making reservations because the wait can take up to two-hours. Because Chevy’s is popular it fills up rapidly but does not empty quickly. When customers are finally seated, a waiter is assigned to their table. The first thing the waiter does is ask what customers’ want to drink. About three minutes...
