I was looking forward to a return trip to Hole in One. I have been there several times before (pre-COVID) and was always happy with my experience whether it was for breakfast or lunch.
This visit was quite different. First, the whole ordering experience was...odd. Even though we are more than two years out from the start of the pandemic, it appears that Hole In One has not emerged much. Ordering is done at the register in the front. I was then directed to go find a table. On your way you can pick up plasticware, napkins, condiments, water, etc.
The problem started when what I ordered was not what the cashier put in for my order. In fact, when she started to question me on how I wanted certain things in my order, I went back to the menu to check again to make sure I had was getting what I wanted. Still, that managed to not be the case.
Since I didn’t get what I went there for, I will rate the food I got in the order that I actually received. To start, the presentation was unattractive in the takeout container. It contained two small potato pancakes, two fried eggs and about four pieces of bacon half of which was overcooked. The bacon also appeared to have been sitting around for a while. It also came with a packet of sour cream. The potato pancakes were disappointing.
In hindsight, I should have questioned the cashier more when the things she was asking me didn’t make sense with what I thought that I was ordering. But, even then I’m not confident that the quality of the food would have been much better. That’s too bad as I’ve had many good meals there in the past.
Maybe it was just an off day and once the summer season starts (and hopefully the experience of eating there becomes more like it was pre-COVID) it will be better. I know it can be so much better than my experience was.More
