Me my husband & son stopped here for bakery , but in the end opted to eat in - it was our first time to Perkins so we didn't really know what to expect.
We waited 10 minutes or so to get seated when we were- we were put near the kitchen.
Our waitress was kinda strange- looked as though she needed a good bath!! & a bit too over friendly for my liking- made, what could of been taken as explicit comments about my husband! -( ill explain more later!)
The restaurant is dated, and smelt a bit funky , the carpets were really worn!! Everyone eating there looked miserable - this is the point were we should of turned around & left!!!
Both me & my husband ordered a club sandwhich & my son had bear shape choc chip pancake
We all ordered cola - once drinks were finished waitress came over - sat close ( nearly on his lap!) & put her arm around him! - made some comment about how good looking we all were in particular my husband!! & then went on to make a further comment that i thought i heard wrong - somewhere along the lines of ...if i was younger i would honey!!! -
I thoroughly get the US sense of humor - but this woman was starting to get my goat up!! - she went to get us more drinks, when she brought them to us the old straws were still in the them - I asked for new straws because I just had a feeling that she had sipped out of them - lol probably my husbands! -( instinct !!) - when our food came the chips were cold the club sandwhich was ok but I had been thoroughly put off my lunch by the waitress!
The icing on the cake was when we were eating & she came & sat with us ??! & started eating chips off our plates!! - this was the point where both me & my husband lost it!! Told her what we thought of her waitress skills & how bad the food was!! We paid only for my sons pancake - but realised later that kids eat free!! - the waitress tried to bribe my son with a paper bag full of bakery items - we threw them in the bin ..... The waitress even tried to follow us to our car!!
So ...my experience of Perkins or Dirtkins as my husband named it was unique & terrible !! ....but it's made a good holiday story to share with you guys ,friends & family! ;) - we laugh about it now!!
