I was craving a steak tonight and thought I'd try this restaurant out. I had high expectations because the parking lot is always crowded. This was a BIG mistake! I ordered a rib eye, the salad bar and added the 5 shrimp (your choice fried or grilled). The hostess didn't add the salad bar to my order. I hadn't been feeling good tonight so I didn't think about it when she added the shrimp. I just figured when I sat down that they would be fried since she hadn't specifically asked which I'd prefer (and no one else bothered to ask). When the food came (quick service and the steak was actually medium well) it was so salty it burned my mouth. Then there were the skewered grilled shrimp. That alone was enough to turn my stomach as I feel that any shrimp not fried is nothing but bait! At no time did the waitress ask if everything was ok with the meal. When I checked out the woman at the register did not ask if everything was ok. In fact, she took my card and never once looked at me, let alone said anything to me. I grew up with Western Sizzlin. I never have had a bad meal at one of their restaurants. The only reason I stopped at Mackie McNear's was I saw the two names combined on the building. I'll NEVER make that mistake again. If I want a steak again, I'll drive the few extra miles and go to Texas Roadhouse. This place wasn't worth the extra insulin I'll have to take!
