When you are away from home, it is always a special time to share with family or friends. Plus Mom doesn’t have to cook or prepare the evening meal so it is a special treat for her as well.
I have made a few suggestions for eating out and they are based on my own recommendations. I did not want to put in every fast food place or small diner in this guide. You can always choose them when you are in their area. What I decided to do was to be picky and choose some of my favorites to just get you started and you can go from there.
These are listed in alphabetical order.
