I have yet to find a restaurant that does not accept Discover. Just so you are aware, fast food is included in this category for Discover. You may or may not eat fast food and typically it is a small purchase so the cashback is also small, but it does fall into the 5% category, none the less.
Are the places you dine typically local/family owned?
Although I now live in California, none of the Pizza Hut/Taco Bell's in Hawaii take Discover and most all of the independent restaurants don't either. I usually stay away from national chains like Chili's, RT, or Applebee's, etc. Fast food is down to once or twice a month now.
I still always ask but four out of five times they say no to Discover. I don't ket it ruin my day or anything just wish the first qtr was something a little more useful for me.
