Hint for the week: Get a menu from the restaurant you frequent and take it home with you. Keep these in a file and before you get ready to go to dine out check the menu for that restaurant. That way, you will not have to take the time to read the menu.
If you are going to order steak or any other food that must be cooked, call the restaurant and place your order and your time of arrival and state your name and they will have the order ready for you. This saves time in waiting for this food to be cooked.
Also, have the correct money for the bill. This also saves time in having to wait for change.
