I hate it when a restaurant offers "Choice of potato", and then the server gets freaked out when you get up and go back to the kitchen, and start sorting through the spuds.

Potatoes are delicious. Weirdo.

BB is OK, fine for them to try expanding the brand.   If Hose A Bank opens a restaurant, expect them to charge you for the order first, then a week later they'll have your food ready but not call you, you just show up and pull it out of the slot like at an automat.  It will taste OK at first but then give you severe diarrhea, oh and they will charge you again for the same meal and for the toilet paper you use.

They have awesome salads.  Mostly because of the...

dressing.

Don't order the creamed spinach.

classic navy pinstripe

There is no cannibalism in the British navy, absolutely none!

Steak places make pretty tasty steak, but everything else about the experience is just awful. Oversized, overpriced, oversalted side dishes. Rampant up-selling from the pre-dinner cocktail to the dessert cart. A general celebration of cigar-chomping douchery. I'd rather go to a nice country-French place and get steak au poivre.

Brooks Brothers is OK, though.

It's well known that we have the situation relatively under control!

Kinda lost me after "Double Breasted"

Honestly man, double-breasted suits?   What is this, 1984?  Yugh.
 
2013-10-09 02:24:27 PM
Pretty sneaky. First they fatten you up, then on your way out, they sell you a new suit since the old one doesn't fit anymore. It's the kind of wild scheme you'd expect from a 60's era team-up of Penguin and the Joker.

/Adam West would totally thwart it too. No amount of supersized meal portions could beat his one-size-fits-several stretch suits combined with his mighty Bat Girdle.

Will my steak come with two pairs of potatoes. I'm from the south and like my steak well-done with lots of ketchup. I sure hope you have a seared-sucker.


DISCLAIMER: I am not a Philistine and would NEVER order a steak 'well done'.

I like reasonably decent restaurants--generally, anything above Chili's--but the only steakhouse that isn't really a chain that I've been to was "meh" three ways. It wasn't bad in any way, but the experience wasn't my taste. Steak was good, but I kept feeling like I was underdressed in a jacket and tie.

Who the fark eats steak with ketchup? A-1 sauce is pushing it. Frankly I prefer my steak to have a nice blue cheese sauce on top--and I order the steak rare.

Hey Subbs--it's called a waistcoat. "Vests" are something entirely different, just as "pants" and "trousers" mean two different things.

Is The Men's Warehouse opening one, too?

"You're going to like the way it tastes..."

It's going to taste like absolutely nothing, and you'll occasionally get two side orders for the price of one, but it'll always be far too big. But don't worry--for an extra charge they'll slim it down for you.

I must be a Philistine then - I won't eat raw meat.

Tommy Bahama tried this same thing a few years ago.  I don't know if they built just the one restaurant here or had them elsewhere, but ours closed about 2 years after opening.........
