Even viewing PDF files on a large desktop or laptop screen can be frustrating — with lots of zooming, scrolling left and right and up and down — so think about how much more challenging that is on a mobile device that doesn’t have a mouse or keyboard.
This also makes it tougher for customers to see everything available, potentially cutting down on check totals and upsells.
The best alternative is to use a mobile friendly digital menu solution like qReveal.
