What am I missing here? Besides hot food and great service? Because we were definitely missing those things...maybe we came on an off day. But really, there wasn't anything that made me want to come back and see if they would have an on day.
This has been on our list of places to try forever, and since hubby was craving a yummy, juicy hamburger, and since Steak and Shake's line was out the door, we decided to try here. Figuring we have already been to Tookie's, we wanted to see what the Stomp's/Tookie's rivalry was about... much ado about nothing methinks.
They weren't really busy, but we picked a table off to the side in the little add-on room; the server was prompt with getting our drink orders but that's where the quick service ended. She took our order; hubby got a burger and fries and I got a turkey burger and onion rings. Then we waited...and waited....and waited. I understand that there will be a wait at places, and truly I do NOT mind a wait when the food is worth it. I had hopes that the food would be worth the wait. Sadly, my hopes were stomped.
The server finally stopped by again and said she would go see what was taking the kitchen so long....then came right back out with the food. Huh. Hubby wondered how long the food had been sitting there and after biting into the lukewarm burger and fries, we figured probably about 10 minutes at least.
The turkey burger tasted decent, but again, wasn't hot; the onion rings were OK. They weren't hot and the breading kept falling off so all I was getting was the onion. So that wasn't impressing me much. Hubby had maybe 10 fries on his plate. Seriously. Fast food restaurants give you more fries! So, very few fries and cold at that. Blah. His hamburger was cold as well, and kept crumbling in his hand. His dreams of a wonderful, juicy, greasy burger were just that....dreams.
We would have told the server this if she had ever come back to check on us, but she didn't. Granted, they got busier, and maybe she had gotten busy, but to not at least check on your customers to see if they are enjoying their food is not a good plan.
We did get a discount when we told the lady who took our money about how unimpressed we were, but she really didn't act like it was anything out of the norm. She said she was sorry, but again, more like, I'm too busy to really care, but I know what you want to hear.
So, unless someone really has a hankering for Stomp's, I doubt we will be back. Even with a discount, it wasn't worth it.
