Restaurants, part two


Restaurants make up the largest part of the food service industry. All places that serve food to people away from home form part of this industry, including schools, hospitals, factories, and prisons.

There are two main kinds of restaurants: (1) table-service restaurants and (2) fast-service, or self-service, restaurants.

Most table-service restaurants have a headwaiter or a hostess who seats the customers at a table and gives them a menu. A waiter or a waitress takes their order and serves their food. The most popular table-service restaurants are family restaurants, most of which offer several kinds of foods at moderate prices.
