Yes, I'm okay with eating in the car and if they want Taco Bell, I'm happy to buy them lunch there and eat it on the way to our next showing!  :)

I worked with buyers in the million dollar price range who were only in town for the weekend to buy. They didn't want to stop somewhere to eat and suggested Arby's. So, that's what they did and they put an offer in on a house that same day. We closed shortly after their visit!   :)

Why would anyone eat anything in a car?  Yuck!  And no, I do not allow clients in my car, ever.  We all need a break from each other in between houses! 

PS  When did naps and snacks become something for adults?  I can't ever remember saying the words before, let alone have them!

I do know that the smell of McD's fries can remain in a car for DAYS.

I am unfamiliar with Taco Bell.

My preference would be NO.

However, if the customer arrived with a duplicate for me, I understand they are not being a complete a$$.

It is most likely I will exercise hospitality at a open air place where they can munch and I can talk about what they need to know.

Only certain fast food allowed? Food is food and on a long swing around showing farms, sure, hit a drive through and munch a bunch like the kids do. Just clean up and no rotten food smells and if they spill something, keep it clean for the next real estate taxi fare. No one goes hungry... same with bathroom breaks.. make sure they get those too! No coffin nail cancer sticks or left handed cigarettes though. Pink lungs all around.
