Should Restaurants Charge for Extra Condiments?
I noticed a discussion on the FB page Tri-State Restaurant Reviews about restaurants that charge for extra condiments. The example given was a small amount of ranch for an additional 89 cents. But, this isn't the only instance of restaurants charging extra for something that a lot of us just expect to be included. If I'm at a sit down restaurant, and I want BBQ sauce for my fries, I would not expect to be charged. However, if I want to dip my fries in cheese, I would certainly expect to be charged, even though the cheese is acting like a condiment. I'm kind of a weirdo, and I like to dip my fries in gravy. I expect, and do pay extra for that. But what about drive-thru's? Do you expect to pay more if you need extra dipping sauces or dressing, or should they be free?
