    just curious. you guys eat out for lunch when mowing or pack a sack lunch or go back home for lunch.

    once or twice a week i'll eat out at one of the restaurants we mow, otherwise i just mow straight through and eat when im done for the day. once in a rare occasion i'll pack a lunch or get a burrito at a gas station.

    My routing and scheduling is arranged for me to stop at home for lunch.

    McDonald's dollar value menu (double cheeseburger, mcchicken, fishfilet) or Taco Bell's 89 cent soft tacos, 3 dollars/day, eat with a cup of water in the truck.

    I could pack some sandwiches but then that would involve a cooler and more hassle, it's just as worth the 3 dollars.

    I pack a lunch - usually two coolers, one with drinks/lunch,another with drinks only. The route does not matter, just drop the tailgate for a place to sit and eat, then get on with the day's work. Doing it this way saves much time, even though I may be close to home. Further, I can pack what I want to eat, not what somebody happens to have on a menu.

    I don't even stop for lunch. I bring a cooler and eat a sandwich while driving to the next job. Once I start working, I hate to stop until my route is finished.

    I have a refrigerator and microwave in my trailer, so I take just about anything I want for lunch. I also have a porta pot.

    I just bring two bottles of water with me. I don't eat lunch but make up for it when I get home.
