At first we were going to go with El Indio, it’s a Mexican place in San Diego that everyone loves. It’d be about $12 per person for chicken and beef fajitas. Not terrible.
Then I found this really cool Hawaiian teryaki place that serves teriyaki chicken and beef and rice and salad. I really LOVE this kind of food, but am not sure if our guests would. This would be about $9 per person.
Now I’m doubting myself and am not sure which to go with. Since there is about 25 people coming it’d be a $75 or so difference, not a TON of money, but $75 is $75, kwim?
Which would you prefer?

Both sound really great! Whatever you decide, your guests will appreciate.

Both sound like great ideas, but I’d lean toward the Mexican. It sounds like a real people-pleaser and for a rehearsal dinner you just want everyone to be happy.

Oh man, I LOVE Hawaiian food so of course that’s my pick! But, while it’s not really “different” or weird, Hawaiian food may not be something everyone will enjoy because of the sauce.

I think people often want Mexican when them come to San Diego. El Indio is perfect!

I love teriyaki anything, so I’d definitely go with the Hawaiian place.

I’d go with Mexican, but I think most people would be okay with anything as long as it’s free. I’m going with an Irish pub and am giving folks a choice of 5 different entrees so hopefully everyone will find something that makes them happy.

As long there is options for meat and non meat eaters I dont think it matters!

They both sound delicious. I haven’t met a single person who hates teriyaki but I’m sure they exist. If it’s free, most people won’t complain and they may end up liking it. You never know. Since you know that everyone attending loves the fajitas, they may prefer that as it is more familiar. You can’t go wrong with either, as long as you know what your guests will eat and what they won’t. If you have any doubts at all, go with the one that you know they like.

If you have out of town guests coming to your rehearsal dinner, I say go with Mexican food. If your guests are mostly from town, then go with the Hawaiian food. =)
