What do teenagers love more than their phones? Turns out, it’s a free meal.

A group of teenagers in California went to Double D Steak restaurant in Fortuna for their high school prom on Saturday.

The 11 Fortuna High School students sat in the restaurant, then shortly after the waiter came to their table and said someone anonymously pay for their meal and to get what she wanted,” Kim McKenzie Emmons, mother of one of the girls at the dinner, he wrote on Facebook.

However, the free meal came with a catch — the group was to “stay off their phones for the entire dinner.”

Without hesitation, the teens gave their phones than to the waiter.

“The great part about this story is that my daughter said they talked the whole night without distraction, and said: it was a blast,” Emmons wrote.

The group was lucky enough to meet their anonymous donor in the direction of the end of their meal.

“The anonymous man came to their table, while he went out and said they were a nice group and that it brought back memories of his time when he was younger. Thank you for the man that not only paid for their food, but taught them you can have a really good time without technology,” Emmons concluded in the Facebook message.
