Restaurant Types

Restaurant types are based on the menu style, price, type of food as well as how the food is served. No matter what kinds of food the restaurant serves, the restaurant type normally fits into just a few categories. Although there are some additional ones out there (i.e. food trucks), this site focuses on the following –

  • Casual dining
  • Family dining
  • Fast casual
  • Fast food
  • Fine dining

On this site, you can choose any restaurant by their type, food type,  or by the night kids eat free. You can also search for any restaurant by their name on the right side of the page  More restaurants are being added each day so check back soon if you don’t see one.
