This diner came highly recommended from a lifelong Stockbridge resident so we visited last night. The service was great and our server was attentive. The problem was with the food and with the attitude after they realized we hated it.
Appetizer: Deluxe Cheese Fries with Bacon Bits. They were out of bacon bits and the "fries" looked like leftover homefries from breakfast. They were swimming in cooking oil and were hard, brittle and dried out. The cheese was melted but already rock hard by the time they came out. The cheese and the "fries" were crunchy.
Entrees: Cheeseburger & fries. The burger (medium-rare) was virtually charcoal and the fries (real french fries this time) were crunchy and dried out.
Gyro platter with greek salad. The cucumber slices were shriveled up and dry, as were the olives. The white sauce came pre-packaged in plastic to-go cups and was hard on top and very lumpy throughout. Odd consistency but the flavor was ok. The feta cheese came in a large slice and not crumbles. I didn't care but I took one bite of the gyro and realized the cheese was rancid. It tasted and smelled of sour milk. I could eat only the one bite. I wondered if it was warmed up from frozen as when I picked it up to bite out of it, a bunch of water poured from the foil wrapper (not grease, straight up water). The meat was dry and the lettuce was wilted.
Side: Macaroni & Cheese. I thought mac & cheese was an easy side to make. This one was overcooked to the point of being mushy. It was so mushy that when you tried to spoon some out of the bowl, it mashed. There was no flavor and it was very bland.
None of the food was really seasoned. After bringing our food, the server stopped by a couple of times to see if everything was ok. However, when we stopped eating in disgust and waited patiently for our check, she was nowhere to be found. We had to have another server go in the back to retrieve her after we'd waited for her about 10 minutes. They were sorry we didn't like the food but there was "nothing we can do". Then, "Thank you, come again." NO THANKS.
A waste of $35. I couldn't get a break on inedible garbage but maybe I'll save you the hassle, the disgust and the money.
