I'm a mod on another food forum. Let me say this.
I too thought the op was probably a rival or someone
with a beef with the owner of the joint. Perhaps
that's not true.
I have noticed tons of obvious "this place is great = my place is great" and "that place stinks = my rival's place stinks, or = my
former employee stinks. It's far more common on smaller boards.
But my biggest complaint is that everyone needs to realize that
opinions are like noses...everyone has one. Just because you
don't like a chili sandwich doesn't mean it's not good....only
not good to you....others may love it. McRibs are probably
the best example of a polarizing food.
But in a roadfood environment like this, I think it's key to note
that we, by definition, are looking for regional specialties.
So if you grew up with Cincy chili, you may not like the kind
of chili burger/sandwich you get in SC, but instead of saying
"it's terrible", perhaps better verbage like "I didn't like it because......" would be a more beneficial post.
