NEW YORK, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Eating out can mean anything from a quick breakfast sandwich picked up at the drive through to a celebratory dinner at the swankiest restaurant in town. Restaurant choices can be driven by passion for food, convenience or the simple fact that you're famished and this is the place you're closest to "right now." But the simple fact is – Americans dine out. A lot.
Looking at specific restaurant types, over three in five U.S. adults (64%) have dined at a fast food restaurant chain in the past month and just over half have dined at a local casual dining establishment (54%) and a casual dining restaurant chain (52%).
