I cannot, for the life of me, understand how this place got 4 stars.
First, I'll start with the place. We were there on a Thu night, and the place is divided in 2. A 'Nice, Upscale' area (in quotes, because the decor looked like it hasn't changed in 40 years), and a 'cafe' area that looked like a Waffle House. The 'upscale' area was closed so we had no choice than to go with the cafe area. Closed on a Thu night? That already made no sense and should have been our first warning.
Came there with family. We had 10 people which seemed to confuse them greatly, even though there was only a couple of other tables occupied. Definitely not busy, which should have been second warning. The place looked about as clean as you would expect it to be from the looks of it. In other words, a good cleaning would not hurt.
Based on the waitress's recommendation and previous review, I ordered their 'Famous Devonshire' with their the special cheeses sauce and French Onion bowl. Someone else ordered a French onion cup.
The cup didn't have any cheese, but the bowl did. Seriously? Why call it French Onion cup if it has no cheese. It's just Onion soup.
This was, by far, one of the worst dish I have ever had. The special cheese sauce is melted American sliced cheese mixed so not to be able to tell it was sliced cheese (at least, that's my educated guess, as it's exactly what it tasted like), the bread was so hard I had a hard time cutting it with a knife, and the meet was bone dry, even under all of this 'special sauce'.
Others ordered a cheeseburger, which was the size of a Mc Donald's kids size cheeseburger, meat looked like it had been in the freezer for way too long before getting to the plate, while a regular grilled cheese was huge, but also tasted suspect at best.
The Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich was the best of the bunch, but when I say best, it doesn't mean it was great. Just passable.
All of this after we waited for an hour to even get our food!
The only positive was the waitress who was very nice and removed the sandwich from my bill without me asking, and was very helpful and polite.
Went to Kings Family restaurant the next day for much better food only half a mile away. Just a suggestion.
