I'll pick the hole in the wall as long as it is clean. Some of the best Mexican food I have had have been little hole in the wall places.

Either one. I don't care. Just give me some good food! Although I don't like spending a fortune on a meal.

I prefer small hole in the wall ethnic restaurants. A lot of them range in quality and there are some good ones and some bad ones.. The thing I like about the hole in the walls is that they are usually family run and you can afford to become a regular and get to know them better.

I do like fine dining and treating myself every once in a while.. but for the most part it just isn't me.

Both can have either or so to me it doesnt matter AS LONG AS THE FOOD IS GOOD!! (I picked HOLE IN THE WALL as i prefer them to be honest)

Sometime I try one, sometimes the other. I can't see the point of preferring one type of experience over the other, unless cash is a problem. In that case, your budget sense should tell you to prefer the simpler place.

I don't own a jacket or tie, so if these were required in a "fine dining" establishment, I would have to pass. Fortunately, I live in a resort area, and fine, pricy restaurants are used to clientele in sport shirts.
