A poll conducted by online dating site AshleyMadison.com, which helps married people look for potential extramarital flings, revealed that the Chicago-based steakhouse is the top restaurant for cheaters to meet.

According to The Huffington Post, the website poll, which surveyed 42,890 of it members who live in major U.S. cities, revealed the top 10 restaurants for married people looking for something extra on the side.

The survey found that the second most popular restaurant for cheaters is Ruth's Chris Steakhouse followed by Houston's, P.F. Chang's and Cheesecake Factory.

However, most members of the infidelity website noted that the restaurant must be at least 20 miles from their homes.

Founders of the website Ashley Madison and CEO Noel Biderman said that cheaters tend to meet at chain restaurants because they are larger and less conspicuous.

"Chain restaurants are larger and less conspicuous," they said in a press release, according to the Huffington Post.

"Steak houses are always a popular affair destination since they're not only dimly lit but also commonly found in business districts, close to hotels where the these type of dates typically end," the added.

Biderman told the NY Post that cheaters choose chain restaurants because it makes it easy to pass extramarital rendezvous off as business meetings.

"You can put it on your credit card and not worry about your partner finding out that you went somewhere romantic like Per Se," Biderman told the NY Post.
