3 Simple Ways to Get Your Food Quicker

Do you ever sit around your house on a Friday evening thinking over all the possibilities for dinner?  It’s probably likely that if you have done this, you also rejected all of the restaurants that came to mind.  This can be a frustrating part of the day, but there are many ways that you can easily find the next best thing you have been searching for.

With these simple solutions, you will save time, money, and your hunger by coming across the perfect restaurant for you and your friends to enjoy.

Check Out the App Store

One of the best ways to find out about anything, especially food, is through online reviews.  There are plenty of mobile apps and websites that allow you to find restaurants AND food trucks in your area by price, cuisine, and more.  You can get opinions by dozens of people like you who have tried all of these restaurants and make your decision-making a lot easier.

Here is a list of the latest food-finding apps:

  • Eat Street
  • Foodspotting
  • Urbanspoon
  • OpenTable
  • LocalEats

Listen to Your Friends

Sometimes the best opinion comes from your friends and family.  You probably trust their judgment because who knows you better than the people closest to you?  Word of mouth is the best way “consumers” can find out about a restaurant and how restaurants get their business.

Take a Joyride

When all else fails, grab the keys, your friends, and jump into your car.  Drive past the shops downtown or get on the 101.  You might just find yourself in one of the many beach towns in SLO County and walk right into your new favorite hang out spot on the weeknights.  More often than not, you’ll find a place you always passed by, but never gave a chance.  That, or you’ll wonder how you never saw a particular place to begin with.
