Since I'm a single guy I do eat out fairly regularly---some of my favorite local hangouts include the Cracker Barrel, The Texas Roadhouse, and El Paradiso.  Those are my personal favorites here in the Capitol City. 


According to a new survey, most Americans go out to eat every month – but many have cut back recently.

The survey found 64 percent of adults say they ate at a fast-food restaurant chain in the past month, 54 percent at a casual restaurant, and 18 percent at a fine dining restaurant.

Only 10 percent said they didn't eat out in any of these types of restaurants in the past month.

Even though most people said they eat out at least once a month, Americans seem to be cutting back – a majority of those polled said they've eaten out less often in the past six months. (UPI)
