TextMyFood service being used in restaurants to communicate with servers
One specific dive bar located in Cambridge, Mass might not be the first place you'd expect to offer the most delectable meals, but they're actually one of the few to start using the TextMyFood service which enables customers to communicate with their servers by simply texting them. We all know how it is sometimes during peak hours when you're trying to flag down your server/waitress, but this new process makes it less strenuous on yourself – not to mention discrete as well.
Basically, you can accomplish things like placing a food order or asking your server that you're waiting for the check. Naturally, there are always two sides with everything – some seeing it aiding servers in being more productive, while others argue that it's a little less personal since it doesn't offer that interactive experience with a human being.
Nonetheless, it's slowly starting to shape up and it may very well be coming to your local restaurant down the road.
