Talking Spanish Lunch Time Culture

Hola a todos,

I have a few questions about Spanish culture around Lunchtime, I was wonder if anyone would be able to talk to me about their experiences with how lunch time compares to dinner time.

I'm producing a report around the difference between lunchtime and dinner time. I am aware that around 2-4pm in Lunch time in Spain and that it is considered their main meal of the day.

I was hoping that someone would be able to give me insight into what actually happens at lunchtime, do people tend to order food from companies like Just eat, or do they tend to visit restaurants.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Meal time varies from country to country, but in Spain lunch starts around 2:30 in the afternoon, and it is the principal meal of the day Sometimes restaurants open early accommodating early diners mostly from other countries. In Mexico, it a little earlier, maybe 2PM. It's the principal meal as well. It's not called almuerzo, but la comida
Me ayuda si corrige mis errores. Gracias.
