This used to be a Double T Diner, but now it has a big sign showing the new name: Happy Day Diner.
I was hoping it would be a change for the better, but--incredibly--it's actually worse. Honestly, during the entire meal I was thinking about that TV show, Restaurant Impossible. This is the Before scene, when Chef Robert Irvine orders one of everything, and it's truly horrible.
In our case, we ordered a Reuben, with fries. The "meat" in the Reuben was leathery and stringy. Really, if you found a package of that old dried out stuff in the back of your refrigerator at home, you wouldn't DREAM of serving it to your family. The fries were astonishingly tasteless--like they came from a package of frozen generic-brand fries from the Safeway ... that had been left out for a week too long.
We also ordered a specialty--the Chicken Chesapeake. Supposedly crab on top of chicken breast, with potatoes and broccoli on the side. The broccoli was *SO* frozen that when I took a bite, they GUSHED WATER into my mouth. But the lowlight of the meal was the chicken thing. It comes as a big baked mound--looks like it's been under the over broiler to give the mayonnaise some color. The top of the mound turns out to be some mayonnaise concoction glop that had a crab-kind of taste in it somewhere. The chicken that served as the "base" of the mound was in the form of an overcooked--beyond rubber--slab.
The service was actually quite friendly and personable. But the food would send Chef Robert screaming.
We, uh, won't be back. Well not until Chef Robert works his magic.
