Everyone has those nights where they just don't want to cook dinner. If it's fast approaching 6 p.m. and you're still stumped on what you want to make to eat, consider visiting one of your local eateries and treating yourself to a ready-made meal cooked and served by someone else. Places such as BBQ restaurants, family style Italian restaurants and classic American eateries can offer you great food, great atmosphere and more at a price that won't break the bank.
All You Can Eat BBQ Restaurants
All you can eat BBQ restaurants offer more than just BBQ ribs. There, you'll be able to find items like smoked pork, smoked chicken, sausage and more. If you're hungry after a long day at work, you can often find meals that combine a combination of meats or all you can eat meals of pulled pork, pulled brisket, chicken or BBQ ribs. Side items often include corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, coleslaw, baked sweet potatoes and other Southern style favorites. Desserts often include homemade treats like apple cobbler, homestyle pudding and others just like Mom used to make. Service at all you can eat BBQ restaurants is often very quick, as the meals have been slow smoked all day and oftentimes just need to be pulled off the smoker for patrons.
Family Style Italian Eateries
A family style Italian eatery is a fun way to reconnect with the family after a long day apart. Family style restaurants serve extra large portions of entrees that are meant to be shared between people at the same table. Eating family style means that someone can order spaghetti, someone else lasagna and another person fettuccine alfredo, yet everyone gets to sample a little bit of everything. Add in some fresh garlic bread or crusty Italian rolls and a traditional salad and you've got a meal that everyone in your family will enjoy. Finish up your meal with some espresso and a dessert like tiramisu before you head home for the evening.
Classic American Eateries
A classic American chain means that everyone in your family can find something they want to eat. Here, kids will be able to find traditional American favorites like cheeseburgers, chicken fingers and grilled cheese, while the adults will be able to choose from favorites like fajitas, steaks, pastas and more. Service at these places is usually quick and is often designed to try to get families in and out in just 45 minutes, making them a great choice for families on school nights.
If you don't feel like cooking, you're not limited to a frozen pizza or takeout from a fast food drive through. Sit down places, such as all you can eat BBQ restaurants, can be the perfect choice for families who want to sit down and enjoy a meal together. The best thing is that you can leave the clean up to someone else, leaving more time for your family.
