3. Enter Before Opening

It is no secret that any food establishment can draw large crowds, especially on busy days. It’s also no secret that you can reduce your time battling crowds toward the beginning and end of serving hours, but did you know you can actually enter some quick serve locations before they officially open? Yes, that’s right… shhhhhhhh… Most quick serve location “open” at 11:00AM. What they really mean is they start taking orders at 11:00AM. Many times you can walk in the restaurant just 5 or 10 minutes in advance. Pick out any table you’d like! Feel that air conditioning! You can even get in line! Once the top of the hour hits, the registers will open. Not only do you beat the crowds, you will have the freshest food!
