What is the hype REALLY all about?!?!
In a nutshell, don't waste the gas or the money to dine here.
Went there yesterday, with a couple of friends who had been previously and raved about how nice this place was. Like another poster said, ""it's a supposed to be a diner""....what else is to be expected? Well, I can tell you that this is like no other diner I've ever been to. The decor was nice, but the food definitely left something to be desired.
We started out with what I would consider one of the two best parts of the entire meal- the Homemade Potato Chips with Maytag Blue Cheese-absolutely sinful!!! Could've eaten that by itself. As for our meals, my two friends got the Berry-Scented Fried Chicken, which was accompanied with Green Beans & Carrots, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy. I opted for the Fish & Chips....(how bad could you mess THAT up?). Nothing about any of our dishes was what I would consider very good food. This definitely wasn' Mama's Fried Chicken-it looked old and unappetizing. The Fish & Chips-well, I've had better-much better-at Red Lobster, and that is NOT saying much at all. In addition, since dinner was a complete bust, I thought I'd treat myself to some dessert. Saw that they had a Chocolate Layer Cake. Now, if you're thinking like me, I expected a hunk of devil's food cake , slathered with a rich and satisfying chocolate frosting-just like the kind you would see on a box of Duncan Hines. NOT!! As a matter of fact, I think the Duncan Hines BOX ITSELF, would've have been a lot tastier that that chocolate mishap that crossed my table. And they had the nerve to place a dollop of whip cream and ice cream on the side, as if that would help to make the dryness of that cake go down easier. What a waste of time!!
This place is WAY over-hyped for their exorbitant prices. If its a good dining experience you seek, look elsewhere, 'cause this ain't it!!
Oh, the 2nd best parts of the meal yesterday? The free glass of ice water, which I needed to wash down that crappy meal!
