I remember like it was yesterday going out to lunch with my father after he had retired and knowing that eventually he'd comment that everything seemed expensive. I'd say, "that's okay dad I'm buying" but that didn't really matter, the price of our lunch compared to the price he paid thirty years before was higher and, inflation or no inflation, everything to him was expensive.
Now as I near retirement, I'm beginning to think the same thing so keep that in mind as you read on.
My one man lunch at Torchy's was $11.24 no tip (you order from the counter). I had two egg tacos, a small bowl of chips and salsa, and a drink.
The tacos were good not great, the chips were below average, and the salsa was okay. So when I think of Torchy's I think, a cool, hip kind of place, pretty good food, but way too expensive.
Am I just getting old or what?
