Jack Astors..

I was having dinner with my roomate and a friend recently, and my roommate had a gift certificate for Jack Astors. So we went there. However, during the course of our epic meal, I realized that Jack Astros sucks.

Let's review:
Extremely limited menu. Essentially just two pages, 1/4 of which is appetizers. Then there's the usual array of sandwiches and burgers, and a small pasta section.

Secondly, this is one of those places with asshole waiters who are more interested in being your friend or drawing their name upside down in crayon than they are in serving you correctly. While there, I was given a flat popl. I inform the server ("Have you ever been to Jack's before? Well, we work as a team, ask any of us! - okay, then don't act like an asshole if you ask you for something and you're not my server). She says "Okay, would you like anohter kind of pop?" No you dumb bitch, I'd like you to fix the fucking CO2 tank so that the pop tastes right. However, I took the other type... which of course was also missing CO2. Secondly, the salad we ordered didn't come until after the main course, the waiter forgot to get seperate bills, apologized profusely, and then took 15 minutes to get back to us.

Thirdly, the food is crap. They have one good thing, and it's the fucking bread that comes with dinner! The pasta is lifeless and boring, the salads dead...

Finally, it's too expensive. 20 bucks to have a coke, pasta, and some pan bread? Okay, that makes sense, since Jack Astors is the only restaurant in the world, and I can't go anywhere els.... wait a damn minute!

I am going to do my best to avoid Jack Astors in the future. Their pan bread ain't that good. (Oh yeah, Applebees sucks too)
