What dishes / foods do you NEVER get at restaurants?

Recently, I saw a thread about the difference between making risotto at home and what you get at a restaurant. Logistics dictate that it's unlikely you'll get absolutely from scratch made risotto at a restaurant.

It got me thinking that I never order meatloaf at a restaurant. Logistics dictate that it has to be premade and reheated if it's made in a traditional loaf (pan or freeform) style. And it's never, ever the same. I mean, it can be delicious in its own right, but it's not the same as fresh from the oven meatloaf.

I also never order something like spaghetti. Plain old spaghetti. I know it might be the best damn spaghetti ever, but my pocketbook tells me I can do that myself at home and like it just as much for much, much less!

What do you think a restaurant can't do as well as a home kitchen? Or what do you never order?
