full service or counter service

I currently have a full service mexican restaurant but have been tossing the idea of changing my service structure.  Dinners are great but lunch has been very slow.  I feel that customers want a faster lunch because of time constraints.  My idea was changing lunch to counter service and keeping dinner at full service.  This way I can accommodate the lunch crowd as well.  I will have a hostess all day directing customers so that there wont be any confusion.  
My question is how many people prefer a counter service lunch rather than a full service lunch?
