Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm!! Table service was slow. Italian pizza was sooooooo salty. French onion soup was OK. Carrot cake was extremely dry and tasted like flour!
I have learned that restaurants tend to overestimate wait times in order to avoid upsetting customers in case it does take awhile.

Had Jimmy John's over at Potranco. Was NOT impressed. I don't like the veggies on my sub and asked them to hold them, they asked if I'd like the "slim" which has no veggies. I said sure. Unaware how they dressed the sandwich, I asked the sandwich maker if he could add vinegar/oil and spicy mustard. I was promptly told I could NOT add anything since I ordered the "slim". They offered to give me a packet of mustard though. I couldn't believe it. When I asked if I could just pay the $1 (difference between regular and slim) I was told no, my order was already placed. I was flabbergasted.

Also, after I sat down, I saw the sandwich wasn't cut I asked if they had plastic knives and was told "no, but bring it back and we'll cut it for you". So after the customer has handled the food, they would take it back and use a knife they were using on all the sandwiches? I don't think so.

I'm not a huge food service complainer since I have spend many years living the life of a food service worker but the way I was treated was simply amazing.

For the price of the food, I will most definitely be heading to Jersey Mike's or Lenny's...both of which is quite tasty!!!

BTW I sure wish Barnacle Bills would come back.
Spankys is a lost cause and Barnacle Bills has come back. Now known as Laguna Madre.

Laguana Madre doesn't remind me of Barnacle Bills at all even though both are run by Bill Miller's.

What happened? I thought they were open and about 3 weeks ago we stopped by to eat......denied! The sign has been up for a while. I wonder how many people do the same thing as me? Fuddrucker's should put a sign over near there so people wanting a burger will head over there. I love Fudd's.
