What time does Burger King stop serving breakfast?

A productive day starts with a hearty breakfast—and for most of us, that sometimes means fast food. We can claim to hate it all we want, but there’s no denying the allure of a tasty bacon, egg, and cheese Crossan’wich served with a side of toasty hash browns. If your rise and shine is somewhat sluggish some mornings, you may wonder what time can you order breakfast until at Burger King? Well, Burger King typically starts serving breakfast at 6 a.m. and serves its morning menu until 10:30 sharp at which time, lunch promptly starts. (The exceptions to this rule are the 24/7 locations, which may start breakfast earlier than that.) Find a Burger King location near you. If you’ve ever wondered why fast food joints just don’t serve breakfast all day long, it has to do with griddle temperatures. Lunch menu items, like those sizzling burgers, require higher griddle…

This is the best restaurant in the world

There are a lot of great restaurants on Earth, but only one restaurant can be the best restaurant. And that award was just announced. The 17th annual World’s 50 Best Restaurants award ceremony was held in Singapore on June 25. This was the first time the event had been hosted in an Asian country, following its Spanish hosts of last year. Out of all the restaurants in the world, it was Menton, France’s Mirazur that came in first. The World’s 50 Best Restaurants bases its ranks on the votes of 1,000 international industry experts including chefs, restauranteurs, and food writers. Three-Michelin-starred Mirazur, in the French Riviera, about an hour from Nice, has sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea. An onsite vegetable garden sources produce for Chef Mauro Colagreco’s creations. The restaurant has a tasting menu only, which currently includes items like spelt and wile strawberries and brioche of potatoes with…

Believe it or not, Memorial Day is almost here. It felt like winter would never leave, but here we are at the end of May, getting ready for the unofficial kick-off to summer.

It’s a day to honor those who selflessly gave their lives servings our country.

Thankfully, a handful of restaurants will be open to cater to those not wanting to cook — but also those whose backyard barbecue didn’t go according to plan. Here are some eating establishments ready for your business on…

Restaurants with handwritten menus are seen as healthier, study says

From the dim lighting to the trendy tunes, there are countless factors beyond the food that influence what you think about a restaurant. Now, a new study claims that even the font chosen for a menu can influence your perception. The study, led by Stephanie Liu, an Assistant Professor of Consumer Sciences at The Ohio State University, suggests that restaurants with handwritten menus (as opposed to machine-written/professionally printed) are seen as having better tasting food. Research found that the imperfect handwritten font generated more favorable attitudes toward the menu overall. Furthermore, the food was perceived as being healthier. The findings are explained in the abstract of the paper, published in the Journal of Business Research: “The results show that handwritten typeface creates a competitive advantage by conveying a sense of human touch, which subsequently induces the perception that love is symbolically imbued in the restaurant’s offerings.” The researchers then determined that…

The 100 most romantic restaurants in America, according to OpenTable users

Love is in the air — and so is the smell of delicious food! OpenTable, a popular restaurant reservation app, released its annual user-generated list of the 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America, and the people have spoken. Overall, the list includes many quiet neighborhood favorites — not just fancy steakhouses with fussy over-priced menus. No matter where you dine around the country, people seem to most enjoy dining with loved ones where the food is good and the price is reasonable. That said, a lot of steakhouses did make the cut — four more this year than last year. With keto being the nation’s trendiest diet, perhaps it makes sense. Ohio takes top honors with nine romantic restaurants on the list. Texas has a respectable eight honorees. North Carolina and Virginia each boast seven and Pennsylvania rounds out the top five with six nominated restaurants. New York, Colorado, California,…
