Food was that bad, huh?
“Food was that bad, huh?”
(Didn’t realize this was so long!)
Maybe we went on the wrong day, but the whole experience was that bad. My family took a drive to Savannah, 7 of us, and decided to try PD’s place. Since it was popular, we thought it would be good.
The wait along the sidewalk was about an hour. Once inside the doors, we got on the list and had another long wait — while we conveniently browsed through Paula’s gift shop while trying to kill some time. Both floors.
When we were finally seated, they scrunched us into a tiny booth made for 4 people at the most. They did bring out a chair for someone to sit on the outside, so that helped a bit, but still tight. The 4 women are small and it would have been fine for us, but the men are big guys and we were all bumping elbows, very uncomfortable.
It’s been 3 years, so I don’t remember everything, but the mac & cheese and the mashed potatoes were bad (how on Earth do you mess those up)!!!
And the chicken at the self-serve bar tasted like that Banquet frozen dinner chicken, very tiny pieces, and the bread either wasn’t fresh or it was overdone.
I made the mistake of ordering one of the specials, fried green tomatoes. It was a very expensive order of about 4, maybe 6 slices. I thought they would be like my mom’s, but they were half-raw (crunchy) greasy green tomatoes. But they were hot, so I know they at least put them in long enough to brown the batter.
The only decent thing I had was the cheesecake. But apparently we had overstayed our welcome by that time, because as I was finishing my dessert, the waiter swooped down and grabbed my plate, and I actually stabbed the table with my fork as my plate disappeared. That’s how fast it was.
We laugh about it now, of course.
