    I was in America last November and December (I am an American born Australian, from Texas) and only needed to use it once, and that was because I wanted to show it off!
    I have not needed to use it here in Australia as yet, but I got it just in case.
    (If you knew me you would probably understand why no one asks me for it lol!)
    I bloody love a good argument!
    Its always to to "have a card up your sleeve" get it ha ha ha ha, card, sleeve lol

    Scotty, does the card help to allow you to order half-sized portions of food at reduced prices? I don't think the children's menu helps many of us, because so much of the children's menu items are fried, or too fatty (like macaroni & cheese or grilled cheese sandwiches). I really have no problem ordering appetizers and asking them to bring them when others get their entrees, or just ordering an entree that I love and taking the extra home.

    OK, number 1, do not take anything home ever again, not for you, not for hubby not for kids, not for dog, not for next door, not ever!
    You have one time to eat, that's it when you are full, you are done (If you take it home you can and you will finish it over time, that's a no no!)
    THUS you can eat from the kids menu if you like (at my stage I do not worry about fat content anymore, it is simply meal size)
    Because I (now) am picky about my food, I will (most times) tell them what I need and how I need it cooked, I eat what I can, then I am done.
    When I am at a restaurant that is, lets say less obliging, I might order a kids steak, if I am by myself, or just an entrée.
    Because my wife and son had had surgery, and when I am out eating with one or both of them we order 1 meal and share it.
    Do not fall into the trap of "take home box" you will order less if you know it will be wasted, it takes time.

    Sorry I did not answer your question about half size. In most cases the waitress freaks out when you say I want this meal but I only want 1 of this and 1 of that on the plate, so I simply ask if I can have this particular meal in an entrée size, most of the time that works and if it is not already an entrée, the charge around 3/4 of full price for a main turned into an entrée.

    I also found that most places like it when I am specific about my meal, it now becomes something of interest and changes the pace, you are now not a "normal" customer, you are special, I found that most people aim to please and this just gives them a little more interest in you. i have also found that staff recognise you when you come back in, must be that the squeaky wheel always gets the oil!
    I am never nasty or mean, I will say something like, "would you be able to do this or that for me", "I would really appreciate if I could have this, would that be possible?" etc
    As you might tell, I eat out alot! But I am cooking pork spare ribs tonight, God help us all!

    You're the second person on here I think who has defined main and entree differently. Perhaps it is a country or cultural thing. Here in the U.S., an appetizer is something served before the main dish (or entree), and the entree is the main meal. We don't have entrees and mains; we have appetizers and entrees. There are also, for "occasions," hors d'ouevres, which are typically single bite tidbits served during cocktail hours. So depending on the meal, one (one who has a normal-sized stomach that is) could have hors d'ouevres, appetizer, salad and/or soup, entree, and desert...a LOT of courses...and this is only in places where they don't serve intermezzos, LOL! Too much food!

    Anyway, all that aside, I see no harm in taking home leftovers and eating a small portion for a different meal on a different day. I call that being thrifty and not wasteful. I'm not talking about fattening foods; I am talking about making healthy food choices at restaurants and still receiving more food than we sleevers can/should eat in one sitting.

    Yes it is all a bit different even within countries, see picture attached when I was in Houston Texas last month visiting my Dad, here is a menu that lists "getting Started"! well after the getting started I was finished!
    Best place I have eaten was in Japan, small simple and they just bring more if you are still hungry, I like that!

    Here is the definition, a bit contradictory:
    An entrée (pronounced /ˈɑːntreɪ/ AHN-tray, French "entrance") is one of several savoury courses in a Western-style and South American-style formal meal; specifically, a smaller course that precedes the main course.
    [1] Usage often differs in North America where the disappearance in the early 20th century of a large communal main course such as a roast as a standard part of the meal has led to the term being used by some restaurants and frozen-food manufacturers to describe the main course itself.
    [2] In that case what would otherwise be called the entrée is called the first course, appetizer or starter.

    Exactly! That definition illustrates what I said about the terms differing here in the U.S. All that, and the "entree" portions here are huge enough for two or three meals, even for people with normal sized stomachs. No wonder America is so overweight!
