When choosing a place to eat out, what is your most important consideration?
Consider everything you take into account. What draws you to a particular eatery? Reputation? Cleanliness? A popular chain? Fast service? Price? Friends with the owner?
My first consideration is quality. I like good food at a reasonable price. My tastes vary. Sometimes I want one thing and sometimes another. If I want a great hamburger I try to find a place that makes great hamburgers (no, I'm not naming any.) If I want Chinese I try for a good Chinese place.
Reputation is important. I want a clean kitchen, good food and a reasonable price. If I like the people who run the place that's another consideration. Fast service helps, too, but I'll wait a little longer for a good meal. I usually go for chains if I'm traveling and don't know the local food all that well, but sometimes I pick them because I like the food.
