When you’re here, you’re family.

Eat Fresh.

Have it your way.

I don’t even have to tell you what restaurants these taglines come from, because you already know! A good tagline can become part of your restaurant’s identity, almost as much as your name and logo.

The keys to selecting a great tagline?

Keep it short, snappy, and easy to remember.

If you’re having trouble coming up with one, here is a list of 187 different restaurant taglines to get you started. Adopt one of these, or use one as a jumping off point to your own clever creation!

General Restaurant Taglines

There are a lot of ways you can go with your tagline if you’re not trying to tie in a specific cuisine. You could choose to emphasize your great value, a fun or romantic atmosphere, or the high quality of your product.

But try to keep your tagline in line with the feel of your restaurant.

If you have a young, hip vibe, you don’t want your tagline to be too serious. If you’re an upscale restaurant where most people are celebrating special occasions, keep the tagline more sedate.
