I'm a registered dietitian and food service director of many years. My experience has been customers will beg for a salad bar and baked potato bar, but sales are low for those days in comparison to the 8oz "Build Your Own Burger" bar. It's just like ordering fitness equipment, it sounds great at the time, but in reality will become the family coat rack!
