I think restaurants ditching menus for facebook is a symptom of something larger though. A lot of web dev agencies out there either won't work with projects the size of a restaurant menu, or will way over sell what is needed. Most restaurant's need a handful of static HTML pages to display basic info, something that could be done by a FE dev in less than a day. My first job tried to pitch a massive wordpress build with all kinds of stuff for like $50k to a local restaurant that just needed an online menu.
