Maybe I am getting too old, but either lunch or dinner, we enjoy getting out to decent priced, quick food, and we love the food at Chili's and Hooters too, but lately I just cannot stand how LOUD they are inside. You cannot talk to each other or hear any other person. Even my ears ring after leaving there. I know it is not JUST me, as my coworkers at lunch or my spouse at dinner feels the same way. TOO loud just ruins it for me now...no matter how good the food. Does not even seem to JUST be the booming music levels (that we are sure the young folks working there set), but the acoustics and LOUDNESS of the people...who get LOUDER to scream over the MUSIC!!! So...am I alone here in feeling that this can just be uncomfortable and ruin a meal? Is it just an "old" thing, and younger folks enjoy LOUD and boisterous? What does the EF crowd think about this issue? Are any restaurants just TOO loud for you to enjoy???
