I stopped at a cafeteria for dinner. It was a welcome relief. It's nice to find something that is NOT a hamburger and that I don't have to eat with my fingers.
The local chain is called the K&W. They are actually slightly elegant in some locations. They are busy all the time.
I ate way too much.
Image #1: The serving line. You will hear the famous line, "serve you a meat?", called out to you here. 😆 Notice the red Jell-O. I think all cafeterias have Jell-O all the time. Maybe it's required.
Image #2: The tray of food. It was actually better than it looks in this picture. Food items starting from lower left corner going clockwise: Watergate salad, mac and cheese, broccoli and cheese, Chicken Francisco, 7-layer salad.
Image #3: The bill. Cheap for a load of food, especially since the cashier forgot to ring the broccoli. :p Tipping is not customary in these places, but I usually leave the table bussers a buck, two if they bring me anything, even if it's just a shot of water.
