Carls’ Dine Out Reloaded Ultimate Sims 4 Restaurant Mod

It is NO secret that Dine Out is one of… the most broken Sims 4 game pack ever. 😅 And there were so many missed opportunities when EA came out with it!

Introducing… the mod that fixes it all: Carl’s Dine Out Reloaded!

Honestly, I hardly know where to begin with this mod! If you only download one sims 4 restaurant mod, it needs to be this one.

First and foremost, this mod fixes SO MANY bugs that come up in sims 4 restaurants!

You can completely customize your restaurants and every single setting. I highly recommend watching James Turner’s video embedded above—he covers the features really well!

You can have guests seat themselves, you can play as the chef (or the waiter), change how quickly guests eat, have guests pick up their own food, and sooo much more! In one of the newer updates, your sims can order at the counter, so you can even run a fast-casual/fast food style restaurant!

I love SatchOnSims ridiculous overview of the fast food update 😆 Check it out below!

This mod also adds an extra functionality with growing your own produce! It makes your restaurant cheaper to run, and your food will be higher quality. Yes! That means you can run your very own farm-to-table restaurant. Carl has even recently add a delivery order system. Talk about realistic!

This mod… genuinely blows me away! It is so in-depth, and Carl keeps releasing updates and taking in players’ feedback. Even writing this up, I can’t wait to jump in game and work on my sims restaurants now! lol.

This mod genuinely fixes sims 4 dine out, and it is an absolute must-have, non-negotiable sims 4 restaurant mod!

I really love this adjustment—running a restaurant every day can be exhausting, especially when you have other sims to look over. But I always hated how it hardly made any money!

Don’t Pay The Bill When You’re Invited Sims 4 Restaurant Mod

Have your sims ever been invited out to dinner by a friend? And then got stuck with the bill? 😆 I have always HATED that! Talk about rude.
