For our coast to coast travel in the United States, when organizing the daily habits, we had already excluded the restaurant selection With a certain name. But there is still a double aspect to consider.
First, we had to decide what was the option of restaurants that we were going to use the most, if we go to establishments where we must make and pick up the order at a counter, such as the type Taco Bell, Subway or McDonalds, or choose to sit like some Sirs and wait for them to come to serve us.
In general, on our trip we prefer the latter type of restaurant, how are the Dennys, Fridays or Applebees.
In the latter case, remember to leave a tip, which is between 10 and 20 percent of the bill, depending on the level of service received, which is generally very good and friendly.
A feature of these restaurants in the United States is that, just sitting at the table, they serve you a large glass of fresh water with ice for each one, which in the summer season is much appreciated.
Another peculiarity is that in most establishments you only pay for the first glass of soda (Coca Cola, Fanta ...) you drink; The others that serve you (or serve yourself) are free.
Second aspect to consider: we have to decide if we want have a beer or not.
In this regard, the fan closes, and in many places where you stop to eat, you will have to settle for some soda filled with ice.
The best way to know if they sell beer in the establishment it is to look in the stained glass windows that overlook the street: if they serve beers, you will see luminous signs announcing beer brands such as Bud, Crown or Coors.
Logically Irish pubs serve beer (Guinness and Murphy's, the most habitualers) and some others restaurant chains also as Fridays and Dennys in Canada, but not in the United States.
