Cracker barrel review 2.25.12

Cracker barrel review 2.25.12
Please note:This will be another short and sweet review.
Intro/General descr: we all know this place has the “homestyle atmosphere” and the building itself looked nice with character, however you'll see that this does not always mean you will get a full tasting meal with that same character as well please read on....
I will also be focusing on my meal only this time.
Order 1 (mine): I had a sirloin steak and baked potato with a house salad. The house salad was ok, not much to report, the baked potato was good, but how can you mess that up? The steak was the blandest steak I've ever eaten. It had very little to no spices, it had a wonky texture, and A1 didn't even save it enough. I told the waitress and she got the manager and her resolved per my request to get me a chef salad (because how can you mess that up eh?) to take home since I wanted to go on with my day and go shopping...
hours later 3:30AM I dig into that salad and it's bland and th…

Review for Olive Garden 2.21.12

Review for Olive Garden 2.21.12
Please note:This will be done as an update to the other one.
Order1 (mine): I got different items this time. I got the Shrimp and Crab Tortellina Romana. It was really good. It was much better then the seafood alfredo they had. Conistancy was really good and it tasted good. I got a little buzz from it LOL. It made me feel good. The sauce wasn't seperated like the other sauce the other time. Cost:16.75
Order 2 (my husband's): Chicken Vino Blanco. He liked it, no problems to report. Cost:12.50
Order 3 (my sister's): create your own platter. She pretty much liked hers too. Cost 9.95
Service: meal came out pretty fast for us to get it. Waitress was pretty prompt, but not as personal as I liked but I think the style of the place is to let you enjoy your meal with minimal interruptions.
Please note: I payed for most of it with the gift card that I received from giving corp. feedback about the last experience. Our total was 47 bucks approx. it payed f…

Ruby Tuesday review 2.18.12

Ruby Tuesday review 2.18.12

This review is going to be short and sweet

intro:
wait time was very long but the place was packed. We opted for bar seating to expedite things by 20 minutes

order 1 and 2: (we both ordered the same thing) portabella chicken. Barely edible, first round was burnt very much and we asked for another, it was burnt tasting too.  Only good things we had were the fries and baked potatoes, we both had zuccini and it was also burnt and not very eatable.

The only really good thing was the margaritas. They were refreshing. and the place had wifi, you need both to cope with the mediocrity of the meal and the long wait times.

Service:
manager seemed to try his best and was nice, but it wasn't good enough.

Overall 1 star and won't be returning. So this is the final review.

Ponderosa SteakHouse review for 2.3.12

Ponderosa SteakHouse review for 2.3.12
intro: we were greeted nicely and seated and taken care of quickly. Our waitress took care of us fast and was laid back and nice. The place was packed, but it didn't seem to slow the staff down much at all and we were able to be seated at a nice location away from most people due to my smell sensitivity. Our part of the restaurant was calm and quiet. Even though the place was very packed it didn't feel hectic. It was pretty calm.
Buffet: my ham was really good! I ate a lot of it and it was perfect. Excellent consistency and taste. I also got some Haddock fish and it was very easy to eat and tasted nice. I also tried some chicken and it was ok, not the best but better then ryan's buffet's.
Order 1 (mine) I got a sirloin and it came with the buffet.I had a baked potato and it was really good, not overcooked like last time's first one! I ordered the steak medium well and thought it would be more tender, but it was too tough to …

Olive Garden review for 1.31.12

Olive Garden review for 1.31.12

The experience (starter)

we kinda went here randomly because I had a stressful experience at wal-mart on the north side.
I was dehydrated and needed water asap. We were gonna pull into BK for a drink but the drive thru line was 12 cars. So we decided to stop at OG for a water and see how the place was...
we were taken to this little cafe like area that had a bar and some small 2 seat tabled (this was done to have a nice waiting area so people would not crowd the door) and given a pager like thing to let us know when our table was ready and they got us a water... we decided then that we would be eating there as I was getting hungry..
we then, after 20 mins approx was guided to our table... the waitress took our drink orders and we sipped our coffe and our pop while looking through the menu. The wait time was reasonable till we got our food.

The food (order)

I ordered the shrimp alfredo. The first bowl was very oily and it seperated after 3 minutes. After…
