The worst part of going out to eat is quite easily standing around, waiting to get a table. But there's no way around it. (Except making a reservation with a phone like people did in pre-Napster times.)
Google helped make it a little easier when it launched a real-time version of its Popular Times feature, which gives a sense of how many people are usually at the restaurant at a certain time, as well as real-time information about how many people are there right now.
On Tuesday, the search giant is taking it to the next level with the launch of a feature that shows the average wait time at restaurants for walk-ins.
