So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

Come on. Just think about your own figures for a minute. 0.5 million restaurant is not serving a population base of 330~million. Especially of you've ever been to a small town. Virtually every town over 1000 has one small diner/restaurant not counting the subway or McDonald's that's also in the same town.

Huh, well turns out I'm wrong on this one. To be honest I did no actual math just seemed like 500, 000 seemed really low. And then I estimated based on my own anecdotal experiences. After reading your source I have to say you are right on this one. Still sounds low though. I suppose, since those stats are from 2018 the numbers are even lower now.
