I stop in there often for lunch on weekends. A few weeks ago I went on a Friday afternoon. When I arrived, I was told I could not have a table because I was alone. I requested that the host ask the manager if it would be okay for me to sit at an empty 2-top. The manager said no.
They sat me at the tiny counter in the front window. It's about 8 inches deep! I sat there quite a while with my menu. The manager came over and asked what I was doing there - as if I'd just walked in and parked myself there! (I don't look like a homeless person, by the way).
So I didn't exactly feel welcome there. Eventually they gave me some chips and salsa, which I had to spread out along the entire counter along with my food and drink, since the counter was so shallow.
The waitress was phenomenal. She apologized, made sure I got my food, and even took some money off the bill.
The manager, however, was totally rude. Really, is it worth alienating a regular customer for the extra $20 they'd make with 2 people instead of one? Several tables came open while I was eating, trying not to be conspicuous while facing the street. So no one would have been turned away because I took a table.
Won't be going back there.
