Your Biggest Restaurant Menu Pet Peeve

So what are the things on restaurant menus that you just don't like. Print too small, misleading dish names/descriptions, no prices listed, etc...anything. What don't you like?

One thing that comes to my mind is menus that list KOBE beef.

Before late 2012, actual Kobe beef had never been allowed into the US...yet you still saw the name proudly listed on menus. As of today there have been either 5 or 7 TOTAL Kobe beef cattle (carcases) imported since the ban was lifted in 2012. That isn't alot. LoL (I just checked my facts, and there have been 8 carcases imported into the US).

As a matter of fact, the US imports in 2012 were not only the first in the US...but it was the first time Kobe had been exported ANYWHERE in the world outside of Asia!

So...what's your "beef" with restaurant menus?
