Going out to dinner is supposed to be fun, isn’t it? These days, though, it often seems like more hassle than it’s worth. It requires too many different apps and communication methods to make a single reservation, if a place even takes reservations at all. I can’t tell you how many times I have started my dining experience with a bad taste in my mouth because of the difficulty in reserving a table.

I’ve finally decided that I’ve had enough. And I decided to do something about it. Something that will change EVERYTHING about how we make plans to go out to eat. Watch this video to learn more!


First Date - Bad Impression

I met a man on a dating app but waited for about a month before we decided to meet face-to-face. We agreed to meet on a day that I would be in his area, and he let me pick the restaurant.

Fast forward to the day for our first date, and I got to the restaurant a little early. I texted him that I would wait for him at the bar. He replied that he was running an errand but would be there shortly. He never showed. We texted back and forth for about an hour, with him insisting that he was there and was at the bar. I left angry, embarrassed, and feeling like a fool. I was halfway home when he admitted that he didn't know the restaurant was a local chain when he put it into his phone and blindly followed the directions to the nearest location. Which was not the location I had given him.

We did finally meet and have been friends for several years and I have learned to just pick him up when we make plans to get together.

Who knew there were two Taco Mac's on the same road?

My family made plans to meet my sister Natalie and her family at Taco Mac on Holcomb Bridge Road and had NO idea there were 2 on the same road about 30 mins apart. We both kept saying "I'm here," but could not find each other, until we realized we were at different locations. We ended up eating separately!

Finding places with low wait time is annoying

If I'm near this road and there are 5-10 great restaurants, I'll go to the one with less wait. Right now, someone runs out of the car, checks the wait time, then runs back to the car, try the next stop, sometimes its next door and we walk or its across the street or a mile down, then we realize we wasted the amount of wait time at the first restaurant if we would have just waited!
