People will opt to eat in a restaurant rather than cooking at home for a variety of reasons. Travelers, of course, may have few other options and, for others, such as single people, it can be cheaper to eat in a reasonably priced restaurant than to cook at home. When I was raising a son, as a single parent, I found that it cost me more to buy the ingredients necessary to cook a meal at home than it would for us to go out to eat, or to have something delivered.

People's restaurant habits vary widely, as do their reasons for going out to eat. Of course, convenience plays into it, since it's certainly easier to let someone else do the cooking, as well as the associated cleanup. But there's more to it than that.

Many people enjoy sampling varying types of cuisine, and they might like to try different restaurants each time they decide to dine out, or they might order different items off of the menu if their restaurant choices are limited.

Others become regulars at one or two restaurants, often coming in at around the same time and ordering the same thing off of the menu. I have been that person, and there is something comforting in not even having to look at the menu, and particularly in patronizing a place where everyone knows your name, to borrow a catch-line from Cheers.

Perhaps even more so than restaurants, people often become regulars at bars and not all of them are alcoholics. Besides imbibing in their favorite beverage, people go to bars to meet people, socialize with old friends, use the free WiFi, or for any of a number of reasons. They become regulars for many of the same reasons that people become regulars at their favorite restaurant.

In a bar, there is generally no pressure to talk. Sometimes, you just want to be around people, but not necessarily to interact. In a bar, you can pretend to be interested in whatever game might be on the television, you can eavesdrop on other people's conversations, or you can join in. At a table, you probably won't interact with the people at the table next to you, but if you're sitting at a bar, it's easy to get into a conversation with the person sitting next to you, or not to, whichever you please.

This guide is about restaurants or bars in Hazel Park, Michigan. They may go by a variety of names, such as diners or saloons, each describing businesses that serve prepared food or drinks. Retail businesses, such as grocery or liquor stores, would be listed in a Places to Shop category, rather than this one.
