When did it close? I read on the Current that she's only open from around 11 until she runs out of meat for the day. But, I think it's been a while since they reviewed it.

I enjoy Five Guys, I think their hamburgers are pretty good. The meat has never been dry, the buns are nicely toasted and all the veggies have been fresh. The price is about 4.50, I think that's fair. My complaint would be the fries, the "small" is a huge amount and unless I'm eating with a friend I opt out because I hate to waste all those uneaten fries.

Whataburger is decent over other fast food chains but one thing I absolutely hate about their burgers and a few other local joints is that bottle of yellow "faux butter" they grill the buns in. Tastes horrible and weird. Just grill the buns in the burger grease.

Went to the egg and I for the first and last time, overrated food. I think Denny's is a better overall.

La Tuna for lunch: Best fish tacos in town. Always a great meal, service and heaping portions for the price...

China Harbor on San Pedro/281 for a quick bite last night.

Worst. Decision. Ever. Let me warn everyone here that not only are they serving over/undercooked food, but when you tell them about it after only getting through half of your first plate, they get snotty about it.

'I only get good chicken,' the Asian woman shouted at me. 'You not know what you talk about.'

Yeah, lady. Riiight.

I filed a report with the SA Health Authority. The place was dirty. The service total crap and the entire experience just plain sad. Buyer beware.

I'm pretty sure I warned y'all about that place several pages back..

Anyways, I've seen some pretty bad stuff in there.. including a worker picking up food from the ground and putting it back into its container at the buffet.

Not to mention that a lot of the people that eat their have no table manners. Their too busy stuffing their faces and scrambling to get more food to realize that they look like maniacs. I went on a Sunday afternoon once and it was basically a fight to get to the food.

I haven't eaten at a Chinese buffet ever since
