“Great Tri Tip Sandwich”
Review of Bristol Farms

Bristol Farms

Reviewed May 18, 2014

Friends had been raving about the tri tip sandwiches that they were getting at Bristol Farms market on Lincoln Blvd. near LAX airport. The deli counter is very nice and the food is to go, but the sandwich is delicious. They have a scattering of tables outside the market, but more like picnic tables than anything else. The sandwich is loaded with healthy slices of tri tip, which is juicy and very tasty. Only got to try the tri tip, so not sure on the rest of the menu, but based on the tri tip, the bet is everything would be pretty good.

So you say that all stores offer cookies for kids for free. Not true, at least not in Canada. These cookies are gourmet quality, free and for children. Make a child happy, make a parent even happier. Happy parents, happy children, we tend to spend more and more $$$$$ in the store. Perfect marketing! Excellent products. You must try the Bristol Farms Beef Jerky......TDF, to die for delicious!

This market has the best of everything. Fish, chicken, meat, produce, vegetables. Whatever you're looking for Bristol farms has the top quality of those items.

A trip to Bristol Farms used to be a lot of fun. It was a treat. Yes, the food was overpriced but also delicious and the staff was extremely polite and friendly, which made up for the prices. They carried items ordinary grocery stores don't carry. Lots of cheese samples to try. I enjoyed shopping there.

Some things have changed, at least at this location.

Everything is more expensive. Ridiculously expensive. A trip to the hot food take-out bar for a small meal will cost you at least $10. And if you ask the deli staff to make a sandwich for you, it's a very expensive, dinky sandwich. Ask for lettuce, they carefully apply a single leaf. Note: there's a Subway a few doors down. Better to get a sandwich there.

The cheese samples are still great, but the service areas tend not to be cleaned up often enough. Sorry, but it's sloppy.

Everything they sell is still good quality. And they do have items you don't find in other stores. The deli is okay, but it's the same dishes every time you go. No new recipes, no imagination. The soup bar is often a mess, with soup dripped everywhere, and if you want a roll to go with your soup, it'll cost you a dollar. Items on the hot-food bar often have the wrong description or none at all. If you're going to put out food, could you please tell the customer what it is?

I think the biggest change is in the attitude of the employees. Try asking for help. They look at you like you've interrupted their manicures. The employees in the deli shout back and forth to each other like they're out in the back alley on a break. The bakery staff can't be bothered to say hello. And guess what I found in my coffee cake - a chunk of plastic. Ugh.

The cashiers at check-out are particularly surly and seem to be counting the minutes until they can clock out. Apparently there is no instruction in bagging groceries, because I've had to stop people from turning a hot-food meal sideways so that everything wouldn't fall into a pile. I had to do the same with sushi. Come on, people. How much training should it take to realize you don't turn a plastic package of sushi on its side? Isn't that just common sense?

Overall, the standards have dropped but the prices continue to go up. It's unfortunate, because I used to enjoy going there more often. I still like their food, but I don't like the attitude.
