Three in 10 Americans have “menu anxiety” when ordering food from a restaurant, according to new research.
The survey of 2,000 adults found younger generations were far more likely to have anxiety while ordering — 41% of Gen Z and millennials (aged 18–43), compared with only 15% of Gen X and baby boomers (aged 44–77).
Younger generations were also more likely to let others order first so they could see what they were getting (47% vs. 30%).
Checking out the menu online in advance is another thing younger Americans make a habit of, with a quarter (24%) of those aged 18–43 “always” doing this, compared to 15% of those aged 44–77.
