Two empty restaurants, one empty stomach

Anthony and I have eaten Sunday dinner at Arby's on Broadway in Tucson near Park Place Mall (a couple of weeks ago) and Boston Market at Grant and Tanque Verde tonight.  The thing they have in common:  They were both empty when we sat down to eat.  It happens about 50% of the time we go out to eat.  Some people wish for such a thing so either we're really lucky, or we eat at an odd time.  One other possibility that just occurred to me is that customers see me coming and run out the back.  Hey, weirder things have happened.

Both restaurants have good food.  I had a roast beef sandwich and homestyle fries at Arby's a couple of weeks ago, and my choice tonight at Boston Market was a Chicken Market Bowl.  One of the biggest reasons I like to eat at Boston Market:  They have real silverware (instead of handing me a spork, the most evil utensil ever invented).

Two empty restaurants, one empty stomach (until I ate!).  I took a few photos of the experience:

Once again, we ate in an empty restaurant.

And..... it's empty.

I get mine with mashed potatoes and gravy and corn

The nice man at Boston Market who helped us handed me a flyer
that announces Boston Market open for Thanksgiving.
We ate at Coco's for Thanksgiving last year, this may be an option this year.

Anthony's choice at Boston Market:
This big piece of pecan pie

This is one of four packets of sugar that Anthony poured into his sweet tea.
Because the pecan pie and sweet tea wasn't sweet enough.
The man can't get enough sugar.
