We were staying at the University Hotel as a stopover between Memphis and Savannah.

I ordered mac-n-cheese for my kid. When I came back in my room and opened box, I was shocked! No plate, just mac-n-cheese exactly in the box! [URL=http://www.radikal.ru][IMG]http://s14.radikal.ru/i187/1504/3f/c3fdb0ab655b.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Are you restaurant or...? And this is not mac-n-cheese, because there is no cheese!

Talk about service! Bobby made sure we were comfortable and taken care of from the moment we arrived at Auburn. We first met him outside on the patio and he ended up as our server in the restaurant as well. Creative bartenders and an excellent chef makes this restaurant and must do when in auburn!
