    Cool experiment and lots of answers above...but ultimately, it wont matter...they will all end up using kiosks or using audio software rather than people...

    pro: cheaper in the long run, and maybe faster.

    con: irritate some customers

    Id prefer them. Better accuracy. And often better service.

    Have not used one yet. I have at walmart...self checkout.

    The restaurant has less overhead & the cashier is not screwing up your order. The Cons? You are working free for the restaurant.

    Stem people will have jobs and the poor & stupid will be in homeless camps.

    They will eat at reasturants and we will be annoyed by kiosks.

    Pros:

    -Generally faster.

    -Great for people who are deaf or don't speak the same language as the cashier.

    -Saves the business money.

    Cons:

    -Costs jobs.

    -Bad for people who are slow, easily frustrated, or who have poor vision.

    -Difficult to customize orders based on preferences.

    -Usually only accept credit.

      Personally, I find customizing orders to be even easier...in general at least.
