Well, it turns out that my new town has almost nothing but restaurants in it. There are over 40 places to eat here. It's all expensive restaurants and no fast food places anywhere. I can't afford to eat out unless I save up money by eating macaroni and cheese for a few days, so this is not an ideal situation for me.
Fortunately, after two months, the search for my new favorite restaurant in town has ended. I am now a proud fan of the restuarant called...I forget the name. I only remember the nickname, "Outhouse Burgers", which shows you how good people here think the food is.
Okay, so the burgers aren't the best. The buns are too flaky, the fries are too small, and I literally had to try out four different things before finding something which rates higher than "edible" on the taste meter. But I have my reasons for liking Outhouse Burgers!
- It is within walking distance of my house.
- It is cheap. It is one of the few places in town where you can get a meal and a drink for under ten dollars. There are free refills, too.
- It is very low-key and quiet and relaxed. That's the atmosphere I'm looking for, because I usually only go out on my day off.
