Everything You Know You Want

Another prompt garnered from Zoë Heller's first novel, Everything You Know (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2000, first edition, page 32):

"Don't you want to look at the menu?" Penny asked.
"I know what I want," I said without looking up. "I'm having a pastrami on rye."

At any place that even has menus, do you look at one?  How much? How long does it take you to decide to choose something?  And how often do you rotate your types of choices, places, routines and cuisines? 

I've got plenty to observe about this kind of thing, but just now am more interested in your take, dear reader.

Today's Rune: Partnership.

I always look at the menu unless I've been there before and have made up my mind ahead of time. It usually takes me a good minute or two, I'm kind of indecisive. :p

We always look but usually it never changes.
