Fast Food

There are many types of restaurant.  In this lesson, we will cover what you need to say in fast food restaurants, regular sit down restaurants, and luxury fine dining restaurants.

Fast Food

McDonald's is a popular restaurant, so I will use McDonald's as an example.  The only thing you do when you go to a fast food restaurant is to go to the counter and order your food, then pay for it.  That's all.  Let's go through some quick sentences.

"Welcome to McDonald's.  May I take your order?"
"I'll take a Big Mac and a small coke."
"One Big Mac and one small coke.  Will that be all?"
"Yes."
"Will that be for here or to go?"
"For here please."
"The total comes to $3.87."

A common mistake is to answer yes or no when you don't know the answer.  I heard of many stories when the cashier asks, 'for here or to go', and the person says, 'yes'.  It is simple to avoid this mistake by studying and being prepared.

In most fastfood restaurants, it is even easier to order.  They have value meals and you just have to say a number.

"I'll take number 2."

But the difference is that there are sizes.

"Would you like medium, large, or super size?"

"Medium please."
