This was probably our 3rd or 4th trip to Sesame. My husband and I love the food! The place has a great concept, great food, and a fantastic price. This last trip, they just didn't seem to be on their A game. There was a host stand at the door but no host, and nothing indicating to seat yourself. So I waited. Finally (I think it was a bartender?) told me I could sit where I wanted. I choose an empty booth along the wall. Apparently it had just been cleared, there were still water rings from the glasses. That didn't really bother me, but no one came back to wipe it off either. Then my husband joined me and we waited some more for someone to bring us menus. The guy who brought us our menus wasn't our server, I think he may have been the missing host, or possibly the manager. The food was wonderful as always. A creature of habit I tend to always order the hotdog and some fries, but I'm never disappointed. My husband built a burger, but his favorite is a vension stew special they have offered in the past. Once we placed our order we didn't see our server. Someone else brought out our food and got the napkins and mayo we asked for. When our server finally did make an apperance he kept trying to take my husband's plate away even though we told him he wasn't finished with it. Probably the most frustrating part of the entire visit when when we were finished and our plates had been taken away (again by someone who wasn't our server) and we were looking for our server so we could get the check. He was at a nearby table and looked up and made eye contact with my husband twice (generally a pretty good indicator of acknowledgement) and still walked away from us when he was done with the table he was at. Normally the servers are friendly and attentive, hopefully this lackluster service is not going to become a habit because the food is amazing and the price can't be beat. There aren't many places that boast food of their quality where a couple can get a filling dinner for under 20 dollars.
