Okay, let it fly! I'm sure you all have eaten somewhere you wish you had not.

Peanut Farm, food was fine but the service was so spotty I couldn't even get a drink refill, while others got several....

Romano's on Fireweed and C. The food and service are so-so, however the owner is an absolute POS. If you try to complain about anything he will literally laugh in your face and accuse you of just trying to scam him for free food.

Besides, the food and atmosphere are much nicer at Sorrento's, just down the street.

Sicily's Pizza. It's horrible. The sauce taste like pure tomato paste, the dough is bad, and the cheese stinks. It's some of the worst pizza I have ever tasted.

Don't be tempted by their other offerings either, I've tried the sandwiches, salads and cheese sticks and was pretty unimpressed.

Lucky Wishbone is over-priced, has terrible chicken and soggy french fries. It is also the ONLY restaurant I have ever encountered anywhere that sells chicken backs as "food."

Las Margaritas. They have a sign at each table stating if you get more than one refill of chips or salsa, then you will be charged. The margaritas were terrible. I didn't even finish mine (that says something)! I asked the waitress if I could get my fajitas with half chicken and half shrimp and I'd pay the more expensive price. She asked the owner (also the chef) and he tried to charge me almost double and the waitress was even complaining to me that he was a jerk. I think he was pissed that we asked. The food was just okay and there is something wrong with management. I wouldn't eat there again!

Agreed about the service at Peanut Farm. The wings really are good though! We specifically sit in a waitress named Robin's section. She rocks. When she is not there, then we've been really disappointed with the service!

Yeah the wings are good and I usually don't like wings-too much work. I was stuck with a work group and we barely got noticed. They didn't look that busy, either. A member of our group was a weekly regular and that person got good service-out of 15 people at the table.

Yes, Agreed.
I have never mentioned this outside my family but DH actually got a rather large piece of metal in his lasagna (from the buffet)!!!!!
He told the owner, who probably thought we were trying to scam a free meal. But I'm not kidding. There was METAL in the food. They gave us a $10 coupon for next time and said maybe it came off of one of the machines.
