    "got sick eating there"

    Hi,

    "I don't think the food from that resturant is clean! The other day, I got sick (A. for B. out of C. after D. nothing) eating there"

    Which choices from the above are acceptable?

    Thanks!

    I remember I sometimes hear things similar to "I got sick eating there". Is that colloquially acceptable?
