RE: Worst meal you ever ate in a restaurant
The last two I can remember... one was at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse. I ordered the "Tres Hombres", a sampler of pork, brisket, and ribs. The pulled pork was cold and mushy, scooped onto the plate with an ice cream scoop (still in that shape, it looked more like ham salad than pulled pork), it was obviously at least a day old. The brisket was dry and crumbly with no flavor, and the ribs were super fatty, not much actual meat, what was on it was tough and overcooked, and was obviously more than a day old also. I don't even remember what sides I had. I "sampled" everything, complained and got the rude waitress "gag" in return, and since that was the third time in a row that I'd gone that the food was nigh inedible, I never went back.
The other one was a pizza place down the street from me... the food used to be great, and it went downhill in about one week. I'd ordered a sandwich one week and loved it, ordered the same thing a week later, totally different ingredients. Instead of real roast beef, it was disgusting chopped and formed extremely cheap beef product, and the chicken philly my friend got consisted of the same type of cheap chicken, in square chunks. I remember it actually had air bubbles in it that formed during processing. I didn't bother to complain, and it wouldn't have made a difference, they were closed a couple weeks later.
