Restaurant Shuts Down iPhone Addicts In The Most Brilliant Way Possible

Chicken isn't the only thing that just got roasted.

Antonio's has clearly mastered a handy little trick that American eateries should borrow: The restaurant decided to go Wi-Fi free, but they also explained their decision to diners in an effort to remind them the real reason they went out to eat in the first place.

"Something was very wrong: the sight of a family or a group of friends sitting down to a meal, with each person glued to his or her smartphone," Nameeta Rajwani, whose family owns the restaurant, told HuffPost. "Is that something we really wanted to encourage?"

Nope, it's not. And we don't encourage it, either. Kudos to being Wi-Fi free!
