Social media websites like Instagram are the perfect place to promote your restaurant, especially if you serve visually appealing pastas, burgers, cupcakes, or pretty much any dessert. Best of all, this is a marketing channel you can take advantage for free with nothing more than a little sweat equity and a cell phone.

I can attest to the effectiveness of social media marketing because I can’t scroll through Instagram without salivating through deliciously prepared meals from different restaurants or bloggers in my area. One simple image and a captivating caption can lure people to hurry and order from you ASAP.

So if you’re a restaurant owner or influencer that wants to get the widest reach from a food photo or video, I’ve provided more than 200 unforgettable restaurant captions. I’ve published my best ideas right here by menu item below.
