Here a few more types of restaurant menus:

  1. Static Menu-A static menu is a menu that is often laminated for easy cleanup. It is usually separated into groups such as appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, desserts, etc. Fast food restaurants often have these types of menus. They are the most common.
  2. A'la Carte Menu-These types of menus feature items sold individually. For example, if a steak is ordered it will not come with a salad or potato. Those would need to be ordered separately. Higher class restaurants often use these types of menus.
  3. Du Jour Menu-This kind of menu features an item of the day and changes every day. They are usually focusedĀ on seasonal items. Another name for these menus are "chalkboard menus" because they are often written on chalkboards.
  4. Cycle Menu-These menus offer specific items for each day. For example, fish may be served every Friday, Italian every Saturday, etc. The cycles do not have to run weekly but may run bi-weekly, monthly, etc.
