Fort Lauderdale, FL
I was afraid to order anything more than the basic BLT and a black coffee. Had I been alone I would have left. I was with a few people who were having a nice time, so I just kept silent. The handle of the cup of coffee was very sticky, so I took out an alcohol pad which I carry to clean my glasses and wiped the cup handle down. While I was at it, I also ran the pad over the part of the cup which would touch my lips. The place looked sloppy when I walked in, but it wasn't until I was seated that the stench (probably from the carpet) began to overwhelm. I didn't even read the menu because I was afraid to eat anything there. The servers were very nice and the service was good. When everyone finished and we asked for the check, someone in our party decided to take something to go, for a friend who was at their house. Well, that was the last of my polite patience. I couldn't sit in the stench any longer to await a "to go" order, so I went to an outside table and waited for my party to get the "to go" order. I came home and immediately went to the laundry room and put everything I had worn to the restaurant into the washing machine. I was sure the smell had invaded my clothing. I did not want to sit and relax in the clothing I had been wearing at the restaurant. I wanted to "fumigate" everything. I did not get sick from the food. Everyone but one person ordered simply. The one who did not, ordered eggs Florentine which came in a large plate with so much yellow sauce over it that one could not see anything else, but what resembled grits on the side. One of our party asked if it was good. The answer came back that it was very bland. They say they are always crowded for breakfast and lunch. People might like it. The prices are right, maybe that's it. I can't vouch for the food because one can't do much to lettuce and tomato and the lettuce was green and the tomato was red. The bacon was as ordered, well done. Would I go back? No. Would I recommend it to anyone? I really don't think any of my friends would like it.
