I can’t help myself: Awwww, that woofie on your Avatar is adorable, not looking grumpy at all.

We don’t eat out that often.
I’d say once a week usually.

Default Get out of the bubble!

We eat out for lunch 2-4 times a week and dinner 3-5 times per week. In the nine years and one month we have lived here we have eaten in at least 381 different restaurants, 69 of which are either out of business or under new ownership. The average distance is about 30 miles and ranges from a half mile to Havana CC to almost 100 miles for a handful of places. We have been to 168 of those more than once. There are many restaurants with good to excellent food, atmosphere, views and combinations of those attributes in Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville, and many of the smaller communities around The Villages. Get out and explore the surrounding areas for a change of pace. We probably eat outside The Villages about 65% of the time. The one drawback is you will soon realize what is often stated on here, much of the food here inside the bubble is of decent quality which can be priced for the majority of the audience served.

We eat out for special occassions or if asked to join in socially. We don't eat out just the two of us. Many reasons for that. Cost, convenience, quality of food in TV, special diet, etc...

We tend to eat out for lunch or 3 or 4 times a week. We also go to the market everyday. All of this is done with our golf carts, so the southern section wouldn’t work with our golf cart lifestyle right now. I can see it coming.

Very seldom. Only if on the road away from home, or as a social occasion.
Wife and I both prefer home cooked.
None of the restaurants, Country Clubs in TV have really struck us as better than what we can cook ourselves, and for at least a quarter of the price.
Will try the new Chop House when we return this winter, as there have been some very good reviews about the place.
I still like an occasional Dennys breakfast.
First meal I ever had in the USA back in the 70's was at a Dennys, and I had never seen pancakes and syrup with eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns etc. all on the same plate!

Depends on the week. On average supper/dinner out---once a week and sometimes twice. Lunch is sporadic. Main reason for supper out is just tired of cooking and not for any other reason. Lunch is to have a get together with friends. NOT interested in "fine dining" as some on this site are prone to speak of. Food is to give life and no other reason IMHO. So we don't live to eat at our house.

Agree 100% with this statement .... we don't live to eat either!

Have you been keeping a spread sheet? You keep better records than most keep for their finances. LOL!

Ever had a Denny's Super Bird? First time I tried one was back in the early 70s with my first vacation in Ft. Lauderdale. They don't have Super Birds in NY.
