I was on another web forum on the subject of eating out. We all agreed that back in the 1980s, people in Ireland ate out a lot less than now as restaurants were much more expensive relative to incomes and the pub culture was still huge. Hell, pizza and coleslaw was seen as exotic here in Ireland 35 years ago.
Eating out was a rare treat reserved for special occasions 30 years ago, and kids rarely accompanied their parents to restaurants except for fast food places like McDonalds or the local chipper.
Did you eat out in restaurants with your family when you were a child?
