Hey everyone.

I don't know if this is right.

The situation is this:

I'm in a restaurant with some friends.

All of my friends have already ordered, but one of them is silent, so I asked a friend to ask him to order... I want to find out what he wants to eat. So how could I build that sentence?

"Hey Josh, ask Tim what he wants to eat"

"Hey Josh, ask Tim about what he wants to eat"

Thanks in advance.

    "Hey Josh, ask Tim what he wants to eat"

    "Hey Josh, ask Tim about what he wants to eat"
    Your first sentence is correct.

    Were you to ask the second one you might get a reply like "well, the eggs came from a chicken on a nice farm in a small town...." :D Basically, you'd be saying tell me about your food.

    You're first sentence is correct.

    Your first sentence. Other than that, I agree. ;)
