Chopped. Chicken BBQ sandwich rice and beans. All bad and cold. Everyone seemed ready to call it a day. It was a long travel day for us and we were looking forward to a hot meal. We stayed in a hotel that was near by and it was just as bad. No one seemed interested in serving the public. Not... More
