How often did your family go "out to eat" at a restaurant when you were a kid?

And how often do you now? It seems like cooking at home has flipped to be the special occasion now and ordering/eating out is the norm.

Rarely. Our discretionary income was spent on boats, equipment, camps and hunting leases. We played every weekend.


If we did it was to a seafood boil / dance hall / beer joint place down the bayou.

Big John’s where David Chauvin is located now on Bayou Dulac. It burned down in the 70’s.

Or TB’s in Raceland.

Very, very rarely. Certainly not to "real restaurants".

We would go to Picadilly on Sundays often, and places like that. And maybe Mcdonalds here and there, maybe mall food court if we were shopping.

But "real" sit down restaurants? It was not common at all.

My grandparents loved Bruning's so we would go there on occasion. That was about it

At least once or twice a week but I was an only child, so it wasn't as expensive as bigger families. They cooked a lot at home also.

Maybe once a year. Vacation or when one of my dads friends came through town. We had access to fresh stuff from my grandmas farm, much better.

All the money ever spent on food has literally been flushed down a toilet.

I don't eat out anymore to answer OP.

I was in 8th grade the first time I went to Picadilly.

Rarely. Never.

There were times we were out of town, maybe a sports tournament, or vacation. But other than that, my parents cooked every night, and we ate together.

Very very rare. It was either Pizza Hut or the local catfish/seafood place.

Maybe twice a month. Nobody went out to eat often. One of those was Pizza Hut and about half the time the other was Bonanza. My mom and I also had lunch out (usually at Picadilly or sometimes McDonalds) for that one trip to Shreveport a month when she bought a ton of grocercies and we went to the mall.

The last Friday of the month if we needed to meet our F&B minimum.

Probably three or four times a year at a real sit down restaurant. Another handful of times at fast food type joints. Almost every meal was eaten at home.

I still try to employ this money saving strategy. I treat eating out as a treat and don't over do it. We might eat out know once a month.

Very rarely... it was reserved as a treat or reward for a family accomplishment.

Rarely and when we did it was usually Piccadilly or Pizza Hut.

Every single Friday night. That was the thing.

Perhaps we went once a week, or every two weeks to a couple local places. Later on, once or twice a year, as well, to a really nice place.

When I was young, however, it was the Log Cabin or Belsome's on the West Bank.
