I've been to several restaurants that had them.

I like them, no more handling nasty menus that everyone has touched and you can zoom in if needed to read.

A few places around here do that. Started during covid, but it saves printing them so they didn't go back.

Seems to be the standard these days.

We have them here even in Nebraska. Drives me crazy when their QR code doesn't work and I can't get a real menu because "Physical menus spread COVID germs."

Yea the practice started during CoV.

One of the other "benefits" to the QSR code is that some restaurants are refusing to print their menus because by the time they're printed up they already need to make price changes due to inflation.

Maybe 6 months back I requested a regular menu, the woman gave one to me but with the disclaimer none of the prices were accurate due to inflation.

We have them here. I'm not afraid of technology. Whatever. This way I'm not handling someone else's germey menu

Going to become more common. I saw a news article about restaurants getting sick of printing and laminating new menus.
People don't think inflation be like it is but it do

I've never seen a restaurant without paper menus before. You scan a code on the table that directs you to a website where the menu is hosted and you view the menu on your phone

If I'm going to a sit-down place, I don't want to have to use my phone. I'd like to look at a menu and order with a waiter that I will tip.

I refuse and make them bring me a menu. They always have a few stashed somewhere.

I was at a restaurant last week. Had a menu, but it said "look at online menu for actual prices"

They were right after they reopened for COVID, I believe they were required to sanitize the menus every time so going digital made more sense. They would bring out a menu if you asked.

Most places still have the qr code but bring a menu without having to ask.

This was in Vegas btw

I don't like having to scroll through the menu on a tablet.  I always feel like there's something I'll miss.  Also only a couple people can use it which sucks.  The other side if the table is sitting there twiddling their thumbs.  Give me a traditional menu please.

It was a COVID thing around here, and most restaurants have reverted back. A few still do the QR code thing, but will bring a menu if asked.

Not common, but several places have them here.

They also have paper menus if you ask.

Personally I don’t like the digital menus, I feel like I have to do too much work to just to figure out what they freaking serve…

But then, because I’m old, half the time I’m using the light on my phone do I can read the damn menu. ??

Can’t win.

I was in Mexico for work last year.
The menu links were a God send, they usually had an English Copy.

don't have to touch dirty menus.
Have to know how to use the camera on your pocket computer...

From a business perspective...
Don't have to print or maintain paper menus.
Can change the menu easily by just editing your website.  Change prices, change menu items, and don't need to spend any money reprinting your menus.
You're likely already paying for a website anyway with your menu on it already so it's almost no additional cost.

Every time we have to reprint menus, it costs $3,000

In order to stay up to date, we would need to print every two to three weeks

Do the math

"don't have to touch dirty menus."

Aren't y'all just touching the same screen instead?  How is that better?

Many places around here had them during the dark days of the Wuhan.
They all went back to regular menus except for one Japanese place where you place your whole order (sit down restaurant) through their online portal.

I guess it could happen to some restaurants, but our servers bring a laminated QR to the table. Maybe someone could print some gay porn and slip it into the paper menus as well?
