A very mild complaint  
Am I the only one who has noticed the difficulty in finding a restaurant that serves beverages that are both sugar and caffeine-free? One or the other, sure, but if you want both from your restaurant of choice, it's water or nothing.

You are not alone.

I just remembered that most places have decaf coffee, but that's only useful if (a) you drink coffee, and (b) you don't mind it being stale, because no one drinks decaf.

Re: (oops)
Eh. Coffee with food doesn't work for me, anyway.

no diet Sprite or 7-Up? i don't suppose juice counts, because it does have sugar in it naturally (and most juices don't go very well with food anyway). frankly, i don't especially like any kind of soda or sweet drink (even artificially sweetened) with food, but that's just me. oh, and you didn't mention alcohol - beer or wine (if you like them at all) do go well with various foods. really, if you eliminate caffeine, sugar, and alcohol, the only things left are either artificially sweetened beverages or water (plain or sparkling).

Chick-Fil-A has diet lemonade, sweetened with Splenda. but all their chicken products contain MSG. (and garlic.)

Nope, generally no Sprite Zero or Diet 7-Up. I like soda with my food, but I've grown up that way. Water is fine, but it's just not what I prefer.

I HATE the lemonade served by Chick-Fil-A. I don't mind the chicken anymore; I've grown used to the taste of it. Their lemonade, diet or otherwise, is a travesty.

Chick-Fil-A boasts that they give their chicken a "unique taste" by marinating it in pickle juice - ewww! but they sell unsweetened, brewed iced tea, which is exactly what i like. and their waffle fries, lemon meringue pie, and cheesecake are all tasty. in the food court at the mall, i'll often get just a burger at Burger King, and get my drink, fries, and dessert from Chick-Fil-A.

They aren't lying. They do marinate their chicken in pickle juice. The taste has grown on me, actually.

Oh, you're definitely not alone. I usually drink water in restaurants for just that reason.
