By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Restaurants industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 3.96. Following is Ark Restaurants with a a P/E ratio of 14.65. Brinker International ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 15.16.

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers follows with a a P/E ratio of 15.24, and DineEquity rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 16.01.
