How often do Americans eat out?

Answer

Americans, on the average, eat in a restaurant five times a week, according to a 2013 survey conducted by Living Social. The survey, with 4,000 respondents, identified lunch as the most popular meal to eat out.

Lunch meals — both carryout and sit-down — averaged 2.6 per week, followed by "1.4 sit-down dinners and .8 brunch or breakfast meals per week."

In 2013, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that each consumer spent approximately $108.67 monthly compared to $108.11 in 2012. However, the report said that the 2012-13 spending levels were roughly equivalent to those in 2006 and 2007. The consulting firm of AlixPartners expects restaurant visits to decline in 2014 due to health and financial concerns.
