I placed an order over the phone at “PW” Asian Diner in Dulles, Virginia. I’m already in their system as they recognized my call back number and pick up name and even my order. When I got there 10 minutes later it wasn’t ready, plus they tried to charge me extra for some reason. The […]

Came to “B House” at Hendry’s Beach in Santa Barbara, California yesterday for breakfast and I fell in love with the view. We left our dog in the car since we could not bring her on the patio (only service dogs allowed) which is completely understandable. We ate as fast as we could so we […]

It was a Sunday afternoon which is generally a very busy time for the restaurant I work at, as we receive a lot of lunch bookings. I was serving two large tables who were both celebrating something, so I really wanted to make sure that they received the best service.

It wasn’t a regular Thursday night; we were jammed. To make matters worse, Eric decided not to show up because he had a concert to go to that night, little fucker. You know the type of night I’m talking about – the managers are sweating from head to toe, bartender screaming, and all the servers […]

One of my friends works for the health department and has inspected countless restaurants, tea rooms, hotel kitchens etc for many years. Most of the time they are fine with only the occasional minor inconveniences that were noted for improvement. But of course occasionally you got some more serious cases.

My father and I were on our way back from Florida. We had stopped for breakfast at a small diner by Jensen Beach. The waiter was nice and the drinks were fine. The only mildly disturbing thing we had heard thus far was someone breaking what sounded like a glass in the kitchen, but we […]

The following incident occurred at a popular Wilmington, North Carolina restaurant one block off the Cape Fear River. My (then) wife and I were having a cocktail at a small table nearest the kitchen’s “food out only” door. There were maybe 7-10 other diners in-house. We were enjoying ourselves in conversation when I happened to see […]

My wife and I visit a neighborhood mom and pop restaurant about once a month. We’ve been going there for years. They specialize in pizza and Italian food. They make a wicked hot sauce for pasta; the best I’ve ever tasted. Their pizza is served in an oblong pan with a thin crispy crust and […]

My wife and I are retired. We are active and financially secure, and enjoy dining out three to five times a month. For a variety of reasons, our appetites are not what they used to be and we don’t drink alcoholic beverages. Normally we split an entrée and an appetizer, and have iced tea or […]

Hi there. I think this will be a little different from the stories I’ve read on here since this experience comes from a movie theater where I worked in a concession stand for a year and a half. It was a major movie theater in my area that’s since gone out of business but that’s another […]

Fortunately, this didn’t happen to me, but I did witness it. It was late night, maybe 1:30-2:00 am in Anaheim, California, and I’m with a bunch of friends from Northern California. We decide, hey, we’re hungry. What’s a good place to go that’s open that late at night? Well, we chose a chain restaurant that specializes […]
