Everyone has that one go-to dish you’ve just got to have every time you’re at a restaurant and see it on the menu. Even if you’re planning to finally try something new this time, all bets are off when you see it. Here are the top rate hard to resist foods on a restaurant menu according to users in a popular online forum.

1. Sampler Platters

“I refer to it as the indecisive platter when everything sounds good, so I don’t want to choose just one. For the record, I used to be indecisive, but now I’m not so sure.”

2. French Dip Sandwiches

“I found a hotel restaurant where I didn’t have to wait in line for lunch while at Comic-Con one year. They had a French dip that they served with fries on a cutting board, with horseradish, of course. I ate it that first day, and then each day after that, we had progressively more people at our party for lunch, ordering cocktails and French dips for four days. It was glorious,” someone shared.

3. Goat Cheese, Walnut, and Beet Salad

“When I was in Ireland, I kept seeing a goat cheese, walnut, beet salad that was mixed greens with walnuts, sweet red beets, and goat cheese crumbled on top with a delicious balsamic vinaigrette,” a person revealed.

4. Country Fried Steak

“The mark of a good breakfast place is how good theirs is. I went to a diner in the middle of nowhere, Florida, and ordered it. When the waitress told me it would be a minute because the chef was still cutting steaks, I knew it would be dope. And it was,” a user confessed.

5. Bread Pudding

“Bread pudding, especially at a place in Virginia Beach that makes it out of sweet potato biscuits from the day before,” somebody said.

6. Garlic Fries

A person revealed, “There’s this bar near me that offers garlic fries with their burgers for an upcharge. I gladly pay for it every time. Especially since they throw tons of chopped garlic on them.”

7. Greek Food

“Greek food, in general, is just terrific. Moussaka is great, souvlaki is great, gyros are great. Some of the best food in Europe comes out of the Aegean,” a person shared.

8. Buratta

“Burrata is so delicious, and I’ll serve it at home, but I always feel slightly guilty about eating most of it myself. We all know the calories in restaurant meals don’t count, so that’s the perfect time to indulge,” one user confessed.

9. Chili Relleno

“Went to a Mexican restaurant about a month ago with a “pregnant burrito.” Bean and rice burrito stuffed with a chile relleno covered in enchilada sauce. It made me very happy,” somebody said.

10. Poutine

“As long as it’s with cheese curds, if they bring it out with shredded cheese… well, I’m too polite to complain, but I will be sad,” someone confessed.

11. Coconut Shrimp

Somebody said, “I tried coconut shrimp for the first time recently, and I feel like I’ve wasted the 29 years I’ve been on this planet by not eating them earlier.”

12. Fettuccine Alfredo

“My favorite pasta my mom makes is a ridiculous fettuccine Alfredo with spinach wrapped in it with chicken. I’m 43, but every birthday she asks what I want to eat. You already know, plus a pot roast that she makes as well. How she cooks makes me want to move back home,” one person reminisced.

13. Nachos

A user shared, “So simple, so absolutely good every dang time. Just gimme the appetizer platter of nachos, and I’m good to go.”

14. Fried Green Tomatoes

15. Crème Brulée

“I always, always order crème brulée. Any kind doesn’t matter. I love Gingersnap crème brulée and a limoncello version that I had in Italy,” a person mentioned.

16. Lamb

“My wife really dislikes lamb, and I love it (I come from a region where lamb is the #1 meat). I order it any chance I get,” one user responded.

17. Crab Cakes

“Even though they’re only as good as I hope they’ll be like 5% of the time, I still always get them imagining they’ll be great,” somebody stated.
