Jennifer: Is it the humidity or is it me? Weak Food Week

I’m not sure what was going on this weekend, but every meal I ordered included some form of disappointment.

Was I irritable from the heat, or just under a stroke of bad luck?

Sonic– Friday, I am already irritated by this bizzaro “no pepper” thing that I am uncovering at Sonic’s around town.

    My lobster tail wouldn’t come out of the shell as easily as usual.

    You can’t get anything good anymore because the people that work at these restaurants don’t care. There is not a place in this city or others ( I travel for business) where anything is decent. It stems back to the people that work there not caring. Now that it is acceptable to have giant ear rings through your ears and tattoos on your neck and work with the public there is a I don’t give a fuck attitude. I am not saying that the pretty girl waitress with the nose ring or small lip piercing isn’t an idiot or the douche waiter with too much hair gel isn’t an ass… Its a collective of all of these people… Go to a place where the waiters are 50-60 year olds, thats a place where you will get service. My favorite is to hear a serving bitching that someone left them 15% they expect 20% for shit service every time… I tip 20% always and more if they are good.

    Still my favorite is the places that have a tip jar out by the counter. I order and leave… What am I tipping for… I waited tables and bar tended… I know how to tip… But because you made me a coffee I don’t owe you more.

    A negative review of your own dinner, and a meal at Sonic? Next up: a scathing, 24-page review of the girl in the checkout line at Walgreen’s?

    I’d substitute good service for a hot waitress any day of the week

    That pic looks like GH threw-up an evening at Runza on the plate.

    How right you are Zippy.

    I think it would be exhausting to own a restaurant because no matter how successful you become, you can never really turn it over to the employee’s. No one will ever care as much as the owner and that means the owner needs to be heavily involved, every single day. I have mad respect for successful restaurant owners.

    Unfortunately, owners sometimes hire bad employee’s in desperate moments and all it takes is one bad experience to lose a customer forever.

    Yep. Happened to me. A Savoy Grille patron for 35 years. One bad night last Summer finished me. With but a few diners, we were seated and waited 15 minutes for a waiter to show up. We should have left but my kids would have been sad. If it was just my wife and me, I would have been out of there. So long, again, Savoy. Dumb ass waiter. 55 years old. Should have known better. Never said sorry.

    Nope.
    Thursday – Blue Koi ***** – Crunchy Vegetables & Braised Pork wit noodles and sake flight. Always fantastic!

    Friday – Bo Lings *** (River Market) Cold Noodles, Dumplings & DF Shrimp. Not bad, the Mai Tai’s was yummy.

    Saturday – Jack Gage ***** – Mixed Sliders (Crab Cake, Buttermilk Chicken, and Bacon Cheese) plus Onion Straws & Shrimp PoBoy (good but lacking in shrimp but the best figgen cole slaw I’ve ever had. Then Cafe Europe for Lemon Cake & Vodka Tonics – Five Stars all the way around.

    Sunday – Burnt some St. Louis Ribs but they were still tasty with no complaints from the family.

    Monday – Flea Market **** – Mini’s & PBR. Oh Yea! Lost a star for the scary and obviously challenged patrons who looked like they just escaped from a mental hospital. But thats the Flea!

    Yes I agree completely with Zippy and Jen.
    Rude stupid employees –
    M&S Grill – Dumb Bartender
    The Drop – used to be good but food has declined and the staff has that better than you attitude.
    Cafe Trio – Dumb Bartender – But Richard is the best waiter in KC. Period.

    Anywhere east of KC with the exception of a few in Independence square are staffed by kids that would rather be drinking and breeding than giving customer service. And the owners who have no business being in business much less know what quality and CS is.
