Dinner Ideas Generator

Welcome to the Random Dinner Idea Generator. You're likely here because it's time to think about what you want to eat for dinner and you can't decide. Even more frustrating is that nothing that you can think of sounds appealing. We've all been there. In fact, we created the Random Dinner Generator for exactly that reason. Nothing is more frustrating than knowing it's time to decide what meal to make and not being able to come up with anything that sounds appealing. We hope that this online generator will help you solve this issue by presenting a number of random meal ideas you may not have previously considered. We've found that people use this free online tool in a variety of ways, but below you'll find a few of the more common ones.

Dinner Inspiration

At some point, we all find ourselves knowing it's time to think about what will be for dinner and we realize we're simply tired of all the usual meals we make. This tool can help with this dilemma. With a simple click of a mouse, you can get hundreds of random dinner ideas that can help you get out of the food rut you find yourself in. Looking at a wide variety of random meal ideas, especially ones you would have never thought of on your own, may be exactly what you need to find the inspiration to try something new.

Can't Decide

There are times when faced with a number of dinner choices, nobody seems to be able to come to a consensus decision. At these times, it's often easiest to have a random food idea presented to you (or the group) instead of trying to figure out which meal would be best. When you find yourself in a position like this, click to get a random dinner and the decision has been solved.

Test Cooking Skills

For those who like cooking challenges, this generator can be an excellent way to test your cooking skills. Since you have no idea what meal will appear or what foods will be part of it, it can test how well you can cook at the last minute with an unknown menu. How good are you creating a meal that has been shown to you that you have never seen before? This can also be done with other meals. While this tool is more geared toward random dinner ideas, the same process can be used to challenge you to create random lunch ideas as well.

We are always looking for ways to improve our tools. This tool doesn't offer a random recipe generator or random recipe ideas along with the dinner ideas, but it's something that we are currently considering adding. If you think it would be a beneficial addition to this tool (or not), we'd love to hear from you. Please also contact with any other ideas you have to make this free online generator better for all. We are constantly striving to make all of our tools the best that we can and your input is a tremendous help in doing this.
