Sticky table­cloths and seats, condi­ments clot­ted with dried food,

trash un­der the ta­ble. All are signs of sub­par up­keep that make you won­der how gross that wipe-up rag will be when your waiter finally comes to clean. Greasy, spot­ted menus. Staff should fre­quently wipe them down with cleaner and a pa­per towel, or re­place them if they’re dis­pos­able. This can be hard to mon­i­tor, so have your kids wash their hands or use hand san­i­tizer af­ter they place their or­ders. Never rest your menu on your plate.

Bare hands. Gloves are manda­tory for kitchen work­ers who come into di­rect con­tact with food, so sneak a peek on your way to the re­stroom. An­other com­mon hand prob­lem: Counter staff who bounce back and forth be­tween prep­ping food and work­ing the cash reg­is­ter. If the guy mak­ing sand­wiches is the same per­son run­ning cus­tomers’ credit cards—and he’s not chang­ing his gloves—find an­other lunch spot.
