eating out too much

my family all have busy schedules on different parts of town. got 2 boys and 2 girls who are grown and it is easier to just meet for dinner a few times a week to hang out then everyone drive to one side of the city. what do you guys order in a typical restaurant situation that won't break the diet?

If you eat 1 time per day you can eat a good big meal in restaurant with family so like 20 hour fast, 2 hours eating.

fast all day and just eat that dinner and make it something decent. something like a plain chicken salad and bring some bottled water. or a plain salad with plain steak. that is it

don't go in there and eat a fried meal with a coke and dessert

I would probably not eat too much for the rest of the day because there will be hidden fats and dense foods mixed in there. Unless you want to go with a salad which is no fun.

it honestly depends on my current goals and what I'm training that day or the following day, I will not shy away from a big fat juicy burger, sometimes I'll get the burger and request to get it wrapped up in lettuce.. other times I'll eat it on the bun.. if I want something particular and it's not on the menu, you'll be surprised of what they're willing to whip up for you.. sometimes I'll order some tuna steak with a side of vegetables and some rice.
and sometimes in the evening I'll crave some pancakes and blueberries, and I'll get a side of several sunny side up eggs with some bacon..

and sometimes I'll ask them to just grill up some chicken breast and season it, with a side of vegetables, some fresh fruit, with a side of cold pasta salad.
