Restaurant memes: they may be what gets you through a week of working in a restaurant. Whether you work with the kitchen, serve “interesting” customers, or need some good cooking memes to share with your chef friends, there are memes for pretty much everything you have to deal with in your restaurant. 

So go forth and take a break. Be entertained for just a minute – until you have to go back to it all.
