    I order the same thing, or two, every time. I never stray.

    Do you do the same or do you work your way around the menu?

    I like to try new tastes, so I usually order something I haven't had before, or a variation on something I like.

    Usually work my way around the menu, then focus on the things I like the best.

    It depends. Some have rock-solid staples, and some have great specials that you only see a couple of times per year.

    I choose the menu item by choosing the restaurant. Usually the same thing at each place.

    I am the same way. I have one or two dishes at each place I go to eat. I dont go to a place to eat to figure out what I want, I go to that place because I already know what I want.

    The exception is I like trying new places.

    I generally order the same thing each time at a particular restaurant.

    But I generally only frequent a restaurant for a particular dish that they serve the way I like it.

    Very few restaurants I have found do all things well. So I try to stick to what they know and do well, and if Im in the mood for something else then I will dine at a place that specializes in what I am in the mood for.

    While I have favorites I often will try something new. I can get the same old stuff anywhere. I go to "Ethinic" places to try new foods. (not have a burger and fries) I just ask questions, let them know my likes,dislikes and any waiter (worth a tip) should be able to suggest something.
    If I don't like it I go back to the fact that I am a picky eater.
    (I see food, I pick it up, and I eat it) Few things I won't eat.

    Usually the same thing, change it up every so often. When I change it up I pick something I already know I will like and mostly have tried before.

    One lunch place that my wife and I go to --

    The cook will see us pull into the parking lot - and start our order -
