I think an online tool that assists us in making good restaurant choices is a positive development. I tried out the search for restaurants in my area and the first one listed was Burger King. To be fair, it gave me “healthy” options and listed out calories and other nutritional value but as I looked down the list of mostly chain restaurants, I realized this was more of a tool for the restaurant industry than for the consumer looking for restaurants big AND small near the house to take the family.
Speaking of the restaurant industry, check-out my report card on the National Restaurant Association which is a guide to how to utilize the website for competitive intelligence.
