Thanks to the broad cultural diversity found in the United States, our cuisine features flavors and influences from all around the world.

Burger Personality Quiz
Tue Sep 04 15:00:00 EDT 2012

You can often tell a lot about a person by the way he/she dresses a burger. Are you a toppings minimalist or do you prefer a bit of everything?

Tipping Around The World
Tue Aug 21 10:00:00 EDT 2012

Tipping is just part of the restaurant experience here in the United States, but it's seen much differently in other countries. For example, in Japan, tipping is often confusing or offensive.

Dining Abroad
Tue Aug 07 10:00:00 EDT 2012

You can often skip the tip when dining abroad, but many restaurants make up for it with a service charge added to the bill.
