My husband and I are constantly debating about where to go when we decide to dine outside of our home. He likes to take a chance on places that seem a bit sketchy in decor and cleanliness, I prefer to eat where there is a good menu and reputation. We do agree on two things though: we want food that tastes great and is of fantastic quality for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, we have hit some duds along the way. Restos that use prepackaged mixes or just seem to have little knowledge of cooking and food have come up in our repertoire now and again.
Chowhound has come up with a list of the Top Ten Restaurant Warning Signs to help us avoid these disasters in the future. (Take a peek at the comments under the article for a few more ideas)
