I used to bring my little cooler the whole crew would stop for lunch and id be sitting there munching on my peanut butter sandwitches. I think the boss liked me less because he didnt buy lunch. it was like i was personally insulting him go figure. Thats when i was working for just a mow and blow guy. The full service company most of the guys pack and sometimes the boss buys but only if hes coming out to check up or give us new orders. Now that i am out on my own i do what i want.

I can't believe none of our Philly-area people mentioned Wawa yet (a convenience store chain around here). A hoagie and a half gallon of iced tea is a good lunch while you're working outdoors, and I could usually get in and out of there quicker than a fast food place during the lunchtime rush.

I usually just pack a lunch, but if I have to stop, it's usually Hardees or Taco Bell.
Ok maybe I should have said an all you should eat buffet, because sometimes you are really hungry and sometimes you just want a snack, you know

90% of the time I pack my own lunch. Much cheaper, and I don't mind going to a quit park and having lunch rather than hang around a bunch of screamin kids at Mc D's.

Occasionally I go to subway, and once in a blue moon I go to Mc D's.

Sometimes I'll come home for lunch.
I'll call my wife, and she'll will meet me there and she'll serve up some tuna taco.

Funny...how I seem to get hungry early in the evenings!

I usually just pack a few sandwiches in a cooler and eat one whenever I'm hungry; I don't really have a set time for lunch.
