If you've felt like restaurant wait times have increased over the past few years, it isn't just in your head... They really have! And by a LOT!

In 2004, the average time it took to get through a dinner out at a restaurant was one hour and five minutes.

Today, its one hour and fifty-five minutes! That's almost an hour longer!

Experts say cell phones are to blame! More time is spent taking pictures of food or ignoring food altogether to check phones.
