Re: “Red Robin

Re: “Five Guys Burgers and Fries

More acclaimed than In-n-Out. . . you've got to be kidding me. I love how they have to post all their testimonies on the wall. Let's be honest, if the place was really that good, you wouldn't need all these HUGE BOARDS on the wall with LARGE WORDS telling you how good their stuff was, you would just know when you bit into their burger. The first time I went my burger was --terribly-- soggy (it was a disgraceful to burgers everywhere). Went again a week ago, there burger was still soggy, but measured up better. Their fries are actually decent, but to compare any of it to In-n-Out is absolutely rubbish. For the money, I'll just go to Sonic; they have better drinks there anyway.

The only reason this joint gets 2 stars instead of 1 is their fries are slightly -- yes, slightly -- redeeming.

Re: “Flatiron's American Bar and Grill

The service was great and the atmosphere was great, but the food was meh. I like to go out to eat for things that I cannot make better at home, and they failed on all 3 entrees ordered. Probably won't go back.

Re: “Flatiron's American Bar and Grill

I was really looking forward to a great night out after all the great things I had heard. It turned out to be only OK. The service of course was great. Hostess, not so much I made reservations and put special notes in, they were completely ignored. Some of the food was good, some not so good. I read these reviews of people raving about the food in many joints around CS and it is just not so. In places like this I always start with the burgers. If I had to guess, another new place serving $10-$12 FROZEN burgers. Why? Soggy wet bun, uneatable bacon, Beans, most likely Van de Camps from a can. Onion rings OK, but also had a very processed texture and flavor, not fresh. Green beans were plain but ok, Au gratin potatoes ok. The steak was supposed to be a flat iron cut, I'm a bit suspect, however it was cooked correctly and tasted ok. I do a lot of flat iron from the butcher and it was not the same. Just didn't wow me for all the hype. Won't be going back. Just another same old same old.

Re: “The Airplane Restaurant

Awful. That's the only way to describe the only experience I had in the airplane. My wife and daughters took me here for my birthday a while back. I am a pilot and flight instructor so they thought it might be fun for me. The plane is, of course, separated from the main building and the staff has a lengthy walk to and from the main building for almost anything. After placing out order we did not see our server again for over 20 minutes. After watching several other diners get their food when they had ordered after us I asked another server if they could find out what was going on. It turns out that our server had 'had enough' and walked out without telling anyone. I worked in restaurants for 17 years, this happens. The problem is, no one noticed. They found our food which was sitting in the kitchen, pushed to the side for who knows how long and brought it out. Needless to say it was mostly inedible but not one person apologized or offered to replace the food or even the gesture of a complimentary dessert. While I was in the restroom someone dropped of the bill which I paid in cash and we left. Its not a very bright way to run a business.

Re: “Five Guys Burgers and Fries

.. not impressed. I was told that this place is almost as good as "In and Out Burger" .. not even CLOSE!. The burger tasted like a cacophany of everything that'd been cooked on the grill that day (onions, peppers, mushrooms .. all mixed together with that greasy taste from a grill that hadn't been cleaned for awhile). The fries were undercooked and needed to be drained a bit (oil leaking thru the paper bag). I don't get the hype. It's no better than Fatburger or any other mid-range burger joint trying to make a name for itself, and I can't imagine it having many repeat customers unless they're just used to mediocre-quality food or they have low food-appreciation standards.
What ever happend to Fudruckers?? Now that was a burger restaurant.
