A few from the blogs, reviews of Pappas and Ann's Dari Creme

Eli reviews Ann's Dari Creme in Glen Burnie. He says that the only "kid-friendly food was hot dogs," but mentions that the menu includes hamburgers, french fries and milk shakes. Don't kids love burgers, fries and shakes anymore? (Adventures of a Koodie)

Robot waiters are showing up in Asian restaurants. They are basically glorified conveyor belts at this point, one critic says. But a more interactive robot waiter is a possibility, a Carnegie Mellon University robotics professor says: “That idea will come and it will fail,” he said. “People will assume it has more intelligence than it does. But it won’t be able to answer a lot of your questions. And it’ll be very boring.”

Was bummed that Ann's didn't make it on your Top 10 milkshake list? The Cherry milkshake is my all time favorite.

would a robot waiter be kind of like the touch screen order system at Sheetz/Wawa?

speaking of automation.... had to ask for 8 new captchas before I got one I could read.

I never understood the concept of what was and wasn't kid friendly. If you feed your child a variety of foods, they will eat a variety of foods including some you might not expect. My daughter started eating the mushroom ravioli at Olive Garden when she was 5 - it was kid friendly for her.

Summer is totally correct about the captcha - I think I can read the one I have, but we'll see.
