Just curious b/c the other day We went to a buffet & its 4 yrs & younger are free. This lady in front of me had 3 boys with her who looked 8,6,4 but she kept telling all of them "Remeber to say you're 5 ok?" Just repeating it to them over & over lol But to thier surprise they still had to pay for all 3 kids bc the age limit is 4 lmao.....

We never go out to eat but if we did no I would not.That is just morally wrong.

I'm a follow the rules kind of girl.  I have never and probably could never lie about my kids' age at a buffet.  I'd actually correct the cashier if she guessed them too young.

I make my 13 yr old order off the kids menu even if it says for ages 11 & under or whatever. I feel the kids portions are more appropriate. As far as buffet types? no

i never even thought about it.  i don't like buffets, so i only go when i get roped into it by my family.  i wouldn't lie, though, because it's a stupid thing to lie about.  if i can't afford the extra money for my son to eat there, i probably shouldn't be going out to eat, ya know?

I don't lie because if someone asks how old they are, one of the will always say how old everyone is. Besides, I can't expect my children to tell the truth if I don't.
