Watch folks eat gumbo! Sat, 03/5/11 5:41 PM (permalink)
 Well, to be fair they eat much much more than that.  
     That's right , Prejean's in Louisiana has a webcam that lets you gawk at poor unsuspecting diners ( and if you are me, rate the waitstaff)  just as if you were there! the thing is ;
A: I have no idea how to post a link to the webcam. 
2: Is this where this thread should be? 
B: Would a very kind interwebnet friendly Roadfooder possibly do that ol' link magic that you do so well? 
     It's kind of neat to watch, MUCH better than the Big Texan Cam!

    When I ate at Prejean's last Summer, I called Mariton and made her get on the site to see if she could see me.  Unfortunately, my table was just off camera.  Didn't stop me from getting up and waving at it a few times!
     
    The Crab Shack in Georgia also has a live webcam.

        I have no idea what iqvision is, but I'm not installing it. That said, that website
        is a nightmare to view. Wow!

          Click on their web site:
          http://www.prejeans.com/
          In the upper right corner, click on the Camera. Mine is a still shot but I guess you can get a program for Movement. My Virus protection blocked it.

            I meant the crab shack website. The prejean's one is elegant by comparison, and the webcam works without downloading anything.

              I don't know, I think this should have been posted in the "Miscellaneous Roadfood Restaurants in the Media That are Sometimes Associated With Food, But Can Turn an Entire Society on It's Ears" Forum.

                  Oh, I just noticed we don't have that forum.  Must have been on another site.
                   
                  I was just kidding, although I am not comfortable with that webcam.

                      No thanks. Watching strangers eat is not one of my pasttimes.

                            I think it would be more entertaining watching people drink at "Sloppy Joes".

                              Sorry, I didn't intend to rile anybody...
                               I just thought it was kind of amusing and pretty Roadfood-y to boot.
                              and it's not so much watching them eat as it is watching the food pass by on the way to the diners.

                                Hey AHI, I liked the topic.  What other Roadfood restaurants have live web cams?

                                  Wait a sec. Isn't this the place that got pranked by some Canadian phone pranksters? They called the manager posing as health authorities and told him that the food was infected with something.  The callers instructed him to have his staff tell the patrons to get to an ER while they recorded the reaction from the webcam. You'd think that after that experience any restaurant owner would be out of his mind to stream live video.

                                        She doesn't need to keep tabs...That's what the tracker-probe is for. Remember, you can muffle it's effectiveness by wrapping a wet towel around your head.

                                        I think they should put a web cam in the rest room and stream video showing who didn't wash their hands. Geez, I crack myself up!

                                              Hmmmm they must close early, all the chairs are on the tables and the lights are off, but the ceiling fan is on high

                                                Yes! Somebody left the ceiling fans on. I was hoping to see some food. Too late tonight.

                                                  Bike Weeks in full swing down here.
                                                  check out this live web cam at selected hours.
                                                  www.316mainststation.com.
                                                  click on live web cam

                                                  The only place I've ever seen that promotes their Restroom to attract customers! Especially during Bike Week!

                                                    And then there's the Sloppy Joe's web cam in Key West.  Watch the drunks fall off their barstools!  Well, maybe later in the day.
