Everyone knows someone who's a picky eater. Whether it be a child or an adult, a picky eater can be difficult to deal with when going out. To combat this, you have to have a few tricks up your sleeve to appease everyone and avoid any fussy behavior. 

Dine At A Buffet


Buffets aren't known for always having the best food, but some buffets are decent. When you go to a buffet, the finicky eater can pick and choose what they want without complaining or causing a scene. Buffets are an easy choice after you've had a long day and don't feel like dealing with confrontation.

Ask The Individual

Simply asking what a person likes to eat is usually enough when narrowing down a restaurant to go to. You may find out that they prefer Mexican or Chinese food, but they hate Italian. When you have an idea of what they like, you'll have a much easier time pleasing a picky eater.

Special Orders

If a person is reasonably picky, you can get away with going to just about any restaurant, and most restaurants will do modifications on their menu items. That being said, there may be a few restaurants that don't, and it's best to check ahead of time before dining out.

Restaurant With Variety

If going to a buffet is out of the question, you can try to go to a restaurant that has a large menu. By playing the odds with a large menu, a picky eater will surely find something that he or she enjoys. For example, places like Pickleman's offer sandwiches, salads, soups and pizzas, so everyone can find something they are in the mood for on the menu. 

Have Them Eat At Another Time

If you're determined to go to a restaurant that you know someone in your party will dislike, have them eat before or after they go to the restaurant. This way they can still go with you to the restaurant, but they aren't forced to eat something they don't want.

Going out to eat should be fun, and you should enjoy where you're eating out at. Picky eaters can be frustrating to deal with, but compromises can be made. This is especially true with children. Find a place that has menu items that everybody enjoys to limit conflict and make for a more pleasant experience.
