At the risk of beating a dead horse, I’m gonna keep talking about the disappointing bbq the other day.
I know when you’re trying some place new, there are risks.
But at what point can you turn away?
When we finally arrived at Grumpy’s we weren’t immediately disappointed. We walked in. The place looked cozy. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and seated at a high-top table. So far so good.
I had seen the menu online before we came, and the pictures looked enticing. The pics were some of the reason I chose the place. So when we were handed our menus, I knew I was going to order “The King”.
Our waitress, not the one who greeted us when we walked in, was not excited at all to be there. We asked a few questions, but quit after seeing she wasn’t interested in being helpful. We placed our order, and within a few minutes it was brought out.
As I mentioned earlier – it did not meet my expectations at all. As soon as our waitress left, I turned to my husband and asked him if he wanted to dash.
Obviously we didn’t feel right about dashing, and I squelched my desire to express my disappointment to the waitress after dealing with her lack of enthusiasm earlier. And I felt kinda silly wanting to say, “where’s the beef?”
But I still wonder if we had the right to dash?
I would never dine and dash, but is it okay to dash before you dine?
Or should I have sucked it up and let my waitress know that what I was served did not correspond with what the menu described?
Grumpy’s BBQ is gently covered in our signature rub then slow smoked for 12 long hours for the most tender and flavorful pork you have ever tasted!
Smoked brisket sliced & piled high with swiss cheese, served on a hoagie.
Have any of you ever dashed before dining? And/or have any of you had the nerve to speak up when your meal wasn’t quite what you were expecting?
