Proposed features/All you can eat
|All You Can Eat|
|Definition:||Whether the place offers an all-you-can-eat option.|
|Rendered as:||Not rendered|
This tag describes whether there is an all-you-can-eat option in a restaurant, fast food joint, cafe or other kind of place that sells food for direct consumption.
The all-you-can-eat option does not necessarily needs to be buffet-style.
This is a potentially useful information that does not have a standard way of tagging yet.
This tag include buffet-style places that lets you eat "all that fits in your plate" (i.e. you can't have more food after the first serving).
This tag does not imply leftovers can be taken home.
all_you_can_eat=no might be useful when a place belongs to a chain of restaurants that does offer an all-you-can-eat option, however this particular place does not; or when that particular area is known for offering this option; or similar cases.
If the all-you-can-eat option is not offered at all times, you can describe when it is offered using opening_hours=*'s syntax.
It is allowed to use it without an opening_hours=* tag in the same element;
This tag (originally all_you_can_eat:type=*) became a proposal of its own: Proposed_features/Serving_System
