Once, we were ignored at the corner of the bar for a long time until we were dressing to leave before finally getting service. I let this pass because they were busy and the food was usually good, even if they often run out of...menu items and ingredients.
Tonight, we went for the Taco Tuesday special. I think we discerned that there no longer is one, though the waitress had difficulty understanding my inquiry about the special (because she was new or never knew there was one). My wife stuck with her taco order, while I looked at the menu again before deciding on a wet burrito. The waitress was unfamiliar with the menu, repeatedly misunderstanding my order for the burrito MOJADO (wet, topped with green sauce) or inquiry about getting spicy pork in the burrito, requiring her to confer with the manager multiple times throughout the order. Immediately after placing my order, my wife’s tacos came out because the waitress had put the order in before even taking my order. Then the manager came over to clarify and assure me, no problem, they can make the burrito with pork. We sat uncomfortably before insisting she eat her meal while warm. Finally, the wrong burrito arrives, no sauce, even after the repeated clarifications with the waitress and manager.
Fed up and intending to go eat elsewhere I requested the check, stating I’d pay for the drinks and what we ate—the guacamole appetizer, and I guess one of my wife’s tacos (while awkwardly dancing around the fact that she was served long before me). Check arrives with everything on, including my wrong burrito and the rest of my wife’s uneaten order. Wishing to avoid confrontation, my wife handed over her credit card, paying for her entire meal and a to-go box for her other taco.More
