Eating out is a common occurrence for most people, so it’s important to know how to pick the right spot. There are good places and there are bad, and it’s likely you’ve got a restaurant of choice that you frequent without hesitation. But when you’re looking for a new place to try, or are stepping into a dining establishment you’re not so sure about, there are some definite signs to keep an eye out for. Next time you’re dining out, consider these 10 potentially disturbing signs.
1. The kitchen is about to close
If you’ve managed to sneak in right before the kitchen is about to close, turn around and find another spot. If you do stay to order, it’s likely that your food had been prepped hours earlier, and that the kitchen crew is also already in clean-up mode. Besides the fact that you probably won’t be having the best entree ever, the restaurant workers might not be the most eager to treat you to an enjoyable meal, seeing as they are ready to go home.
