At take-out restuarants, mainly sub shops or "as you like it" hamburger joints - the glass or plexi-glass barrier between you and the food, that allows you to see your sandwich being prepared.

Usually two feet high, and on a angle.
The sneeze guard at Subway keeps my sandwich snot-free.

Glass or plastic panels in buffet restaurants that prevent nasal and oral excretions from being deposited in the food. The sneeze guard prevents the spread of disease.
The food at the dinner party was delicious, but there were no sneeze guards.

I noticed a long strand of hair dangling down from under the sneeze guard. Obviously, a short person ducked under it to reach for the food.
