Dinner at 4? Y'all eat real early in Utah!

Damn! They really do party hard out thurr

Ha, its the time he chose based on our work schedules.  We are both early morning workers.

Anyway, dinner was great.  We spent two hours eating and chatting.  That guy can pack away the food!  He ate for over 90 minutes straight!!  I ate too much myself, but I only ate for maybe 30 minutes.  I'll likely gain a bit by morning, but I can't really complain about free food!

He had two full plates from the salad bar, a 6 oz. ranch cut steak, a big bowl of cole slaw, a roll, 2 slices of cheese toast, plus dessert.  On top of that he is a VERY slow eater.  Plus, we were talking all during the meal so that slowed us down...

I just had one medium sized plate from the salad bar, a 6 oz. ranch cut steak, a baked potato, 1 roll, 1 slice of cheese toast, and 2 small bowls of vanilla ice cream.  I'm a fast eater, though.  Always have been.

I bet there's a very high correlation between the number of salad bars at regular restaurants (i.e. those that don't focus solely on salads) per capita and the percentage voting Republican. Salad bars in restaurants is a very red state phenomenon.

I always load up at the salad bar when I'm out to eat, as well as on the rolls. That way I can buy a cheaper item from the menu as I won't be as hungry. Wink

One would have thought that there would have been an inverse correlation. Or do liberals prefer to eat a lot of plated salad?

Liberals don't eat salad anymore, Simfan.. what do you think this is... the 1980s?  Salads are out.  Asian fusion is in.

Is Michigan considered a red state?

Well I've seen a pretty good amount of salad bars at restaurants in Michigan.

Maybe it's a rural or "middle America" thing? I don't know. But having lived in three liberal, urban cities in my life, finding self-serve salad bars in restaurants has been a rarity. I find that they're much more common when I'm visiting other places.

Liberals prefer to pay people to make their salads for them, I think. Example

Can't think of anywhere that has a salad bar here. Well, the Indian buffet I frequent has a little bit of salad that I skip every time. I'm always much more focused on the Palak Paneer. When I was a kid, my mom would frequently take me to Shoney's and they had a large salad bar with access included with any dinner. Trouble was all the ingrediants had a way of running together and making a mess. But it was a nice way for a kid to keep himself occupied during the insufferable 15 minute wait before the food arrives. Most of the Shoneys have closed but the one we used to go to is still there, though that neighborhood has not aged well. Not terrible, just gritty. I may have to go back one day just for the nostalgia. I even got a teddy bear from there once. Bet it hasn't changed a bit.

I refuse to eat from a salad bar or buffet anymore. People pick at stuff, and their germs and funk get all over it. Ugh, that's just to gross for me. I know those things are possible when someone in the kitchen prepares anything for me, but at least I cant see it.

Hmm. Only time I've seen a salad bar in the city is in the tourist restaurants.

But I would have thought liberals like to make their own salad,  parlaying for parsley washed with water filtered from a mandala from Mandalay and so forth.

Ruby Tuesdays had a salad bar IIRC. Everything on it was grimy and picked over.

Was the ice cream located on the salad bar like a cheap chinese buffet!? Cheesy

Both of you would cave at India Palace. Guarantee it! Saag Paneer is My Precious!!!
I also forgot about Danver's, which has a salad bar. Didn't realize they were only a local Memphis chain until I wiki-ed them just now and came out empty handed. Long story short, fast food place has salad bar so that you can put whatever you want on your sandwich. Or you can just get the salad bar as your meal. They also have soups and a very limited selection of plate lunches. Very, very much an old person kind of place, which makes the salad bar that much more disgusting. Old people cough a lot. Not where I ever would choose to eat, but they have the salad bar that I had overlooked.

Something more ethnic I could probably try, or something more expensive.. somewhere that I know some slob isn't going to take a bite of something, or pick it up and put it back. The only place I tend to go is at a chinese/japanese place, because I can keep going up when the sushi and sushmi are made and get it fresh, and cheap.

Stay away from Chinese buffets, especially the ones with crab legs and ice cream on the bar! The only buffet I like is the sunday jazz brunch buffet with all you can eat oysters on the halfshell for $39 at one of the hotels here in town.

That's what I was referring to above. The hotel is on the resort where my family has their home. Tongue

I LOVE well done buffets. But not these silly salad bar type places. Yuck.

Link to the hotel buffet? Hotel buffets are the best. When I was in Beijing, they had an AMAZING spread. Blew the local Chinese Buffet out of the water. Noodles, dumplings- all for breakfast! They even made you waffles! In China! Give a minute and I'll pull up some pictures.

Kiawah Island? I've heard of them. Oysters, you say? I had a few last week. Damn, they were good, although I went too hard on the horseradish...

Well, here are some shots from the hotel buffet:
