Discovering While Driving

If you are passenger in a car, have you ever tried to use the 'near me' button on the mobile optimized dishtip site? The 'near me' button will use your GPS location as a key search element. The cool thing is if you are (again as a passenger only!) driving down a street with lots of restaurants and you hit 'refresh', it will constantly update the search results to show you cool meals within a block or two of your location. You will learn about dishes that you would otherwise have missed out on. Try this next time you are trying to figure out what to eat!

You get the point. So....what is the right question to ask when it comes to figuring out what to eat and where?
