(note/background - I'm fat. I never considered myself very fat and still don't most of the time. Of course there is that one moment when you glance in the mirror getting out of the shower. That mirror makes me look fat. So the following might be received as making fun of fat people. Well if so then I'm just making fun of myself.)
"Family Style" restaurants should not have menus.
Is your family offered a menu at home?
My only offers were eat this or be sent to my room. Oh and that was back when "your room" didn't have an entertainment center in it. From what I noticed, to threaten the equivalent today you would need to send them to a walk-in closet. And even then, daughters would be entertained by going through the shoes.
Back to the restaurant - Lisleman's Sitdown Eat This and Like It
- Hours - when I feel like it.
It would be very inexpensive. No menu. Buffet style - get it before the next guy does.
You would first be seated in a living room with couches and lazy boys. But when you enter, Uncle John already has the best seat and controls the remote so you either watch or not. If you complain you must leave.
victims customers arrive. Aunt Vicky yells from the other room, "Dinner's ready". No assigned seating. You just need to be lucky. I-was-sitting-there arguments will provide entertainment for all.
During dinner, school age children will be asked how school was and told to eat their vegetables. Twenty-somethings will be asked, "when are you going to get a real job."
Anyone still left after Grandpa gives a lengthy lecture about the difficulties of his youth will be rewarded with the finest of calorie filled desserts.
Every meal comes with fat ass donuts for dessert.
Fat Ass Donuts - You don't need to be an ass to love fat ass donuts.
Actually in the really world (not that Disney World is all that real) wife and I actually ate at a retro themed restaurant.
Disney World has a home kitchen themed restaurant in their Hollywood Studios park. It's called "50's Prime Time Cafe. You sit in small groups at a kitchen table. You think you just stepped into a 50's sitcom. I recommend you make reservations days ahead.
Please contact me if you are interested in franchising opportunities in my "Sitdown Eat This and Like It" chain. (you don't deserve a break today - I do)
Or if you like, just let me know what you think of the idea - thanks.
