Can you "dine" at Burger King, McD, Denny's, etc?

So I have this program via my bank where if I use my bank card at particular retailers, I can get a certain percentage back in cash. All you have to do is select the retailer, use your card during the dates the cash back period pertain and viola - you are 10% richer.

So recently they had Burger King and it said, get 10% cash back when you dine at burger king. And just today I noticed same thing with Denny's -- 10% back when you dine at Denny's.

I don't know about you, but I consider dining when you go out for dinner and have a nice dinner. It implies quality experience, service and atsmosphere.

If I go to Denny's or Burger King, I eat. I don't dine. Do they think they are fooling me by calling it dining?

@Linkat,
Call it 'dining' and enjoy your cash back.

@Linkat,
What about a diner?

You dine at a diner, don't you? That's not fancy.

I've heard the term "family dining experience" and similar, so I don't think it's automatically "fine dining"

There's a food delivery service here called "Dine on Demand"

Is it dining if you steal the salt shaker and use it in the zombie apocalypse?

@jespah,
I have a glove box full of salt packets for just that purpose.

Remember, always ask for extra salt at the drive through.

No you don't dine at a diner.

Sort of like you don't drive on driveway you park on a driveway. And you don't park on a parkway you drive on a parkway.

Same logic.

@jespah,
Well yeah - because in a place you would dine - they would have salt shakers - in a place you wouldn't you would have salt packets.

So that links to two topics and makes complete and utter sense.
