The Good: Love the BBQ chicken salad
I'm afraid to eat the BBQ chicken salad anymore. On the last 3 visits I've found leftover bits of old food (usually bits of lettuce) on my appetizer plates and inside my glass of soda. Please note that on one occasion we went through all four of the bread plates on our table and THREE had old food on them. How hard is it to wash the dishes! I've spoken to two different managers about this and nothing has changed. Both said the same thing: problems with the dish washing machine. Maybe so, but this has been going on for over 18 months.
Eating cooked products is one thing. Eating a salad (uncooked) at a place where the sanitation/dishwashing is poor is another. Obviously management doesn't care about the health of their patrons. Three visits with the same problem, I won't be back.
There's another CA Pizza Kitchen just a few miles away in Long Beach where I've never had these problems. It's all about management's commitment to offering a quality product.
