A&w / Disgusting food!!

1 Blanding, UT, United States Review updated:

If you ever happen to have the misfortune of having to eat in Blanding, Utah do yourself a favor and buy your food at one of the two grocery stores. I ordered two hot dogs ($1.10 each, so that should have been my first clue) and I only managed to force one down my throat. First of all, if you're expecting condiments on your plain hot dog you better like ketchup and mustard packets because that's all they've got. Second, my hot dog was rubbery. It was like they found a hot dog laying around somewhere and threw it in a microwave for too long. Third, the bun was cold. They don't even know how to thaw out buns in that town. Fourth, the bun on my other hot dog, the one I threw in the trash, was moist, wrinkly, and steaming! Again, they probably just threw it in the microwave. Fifth, the cashier didn't know how to make eye contact or communicate with me since the words "I'd like two hot dogs" took multiple explanations. Sixth, I also ordered the menu item "Classic Float", and the cashier didn't even know what I was talking about. I had to point to the menu and say, "the Classic Float! It's right there!"! Seventh, the kid working the grill was leaning against a wall text messaging someone and when the cashier told him what to make he looked up like a deer in headlights with his bleach tipped hair and said, "huh?". Eighth, as I'm waiting for my food I hear them call out an order number, "201", so the person with 201 gets their food. A few minutes later I hear, "201". WTF? Then a few minutes later I hear, "202", and the person with 202 gets their food (me). Then a few minutes later, again, "202". Seriously, this place is a joke. It's about what you'd expect from such a small, and forgive the language but it's true, inept town.

    You are aware that A&W is a massive chain, right?

    Yes, does that fact excuse any of my complaints?

    Let me get this straight...you had a bad experience at a A&W so you decided to post your tale of hardship on the INTERNET rather than speaking with the manager have your, no doubt, hard earned dollars refunded? Very productive. Besides, it's not like you're dining at some 5-star steakhouse; its a f'king fast food place. Get over it, ya big baby.

    Wtf is wrong with you people? Is this an internet complaint board or not? It was $2.00 dollars, I'm not going to go through the hassle of making the cashier or manager figure out how to give someone a refund. They need all the money they can get their anyway. And what if I did get my money back, what then? Does that mean I can't complain about this hole of a restaurant? Jesus Christ what's wrong with you, binder? What is about "Complaint Boards" that you don't understand?

    Whoa there Slugger, guess I didn't realize how something so petty could mean so much to a person...and take it personally when someone doesn't agree with their sense of entitlement. You call this a complaint? Gosh, I hope the next fast food joint treats you like royalty.
    I look forward to reading your next heart-wrenching tale of woe because the Walmart door greeter didn't say "Hi" to you.

    ...and you're right, this is a board about complaints. Well, I'm complaining about your pathetic complaint.

    binder, I don't expect to be treated like royalty nor would I expect you to agree with a sense of entitlement that I don't have. All I want is what everyone else wants, some decent service. Maybe you too lazy to read my original complaint because there was more to it than just someone not saying hi to me. If you'd like to go to the A&W in question in Blanding do so yourself then write your story about how wonderful your soggy rubbery hot dog was because hey, we're in a recession so cut 'em some slack.
    "...and you're right, this is a board about complaints. Well, I'm complaining about your pathetic complaint."
    Why am I not surprised that you would say something so idiotic as this? Oh wait, because I was actually expecting you to. This is a complaint board about businesses. If you don't like the complaints here, like I said, visit these places yourself then tell us how you feel. Until then, why don't you just shut the ### up and let people tell about their experiences at these horrible businesses?

    wait, arent hot dogs disgusting any way they are cooked?

    i mean they are the anus lips, testicles and eyelids of pigs ground up into a biomass and formed under pressure into a hot dog shape. How can you cook them without them being disgusting??

    Jason Tillo, I invite you to go there and experience this place for yourself. I only mentioned the number thing to further illustrate the sheer incompetence of the place.
    (clean enough language for you?)

    Jason,
    Hot dogs don't explode if their skin's already been broken. And who knows what else happens to those dogs before they served them to me.
    Put an icy bun in a microwave and tell me if it doesn't come out moist, steaming, and wrinkly.
    I couldn't care less how my ### food was prepared, I was merely making a point anyway. I didn't realize you were a hot dog expert. I would've been more careful.
    "Nice try for free food"
    I didn't ask for my money back, read my comments.
    "Or perhaps you are some pervert flirting with her"
    Right, because you were there and you know me so well, you know how it all happened.

    binder,
    "take it personally when someone doesn't agree with their sense of entitlement"
    Your "disagreement" was actually a personal attack so of course I'm going to take it personally.

    You know what, my complaint boils down to this:
    1) I had to repeat my order 3 times
    2) I had to point to my order on the menu
    3) My food wasn't edible

    I don't think that's setting the bar too high, even for a fast food place. If you think I'm asking too much please leave your location and field of occupation so I can be sure to stay away from you because I hate to break it to ya but your idea of "acceptable" is what most people consider "piss poor" and I'd rather stay away from you and any services you provide.

    Please feel free to respond to me via a message where I can more conveniently ignore you to prevent this now ### thread full of comments from people who enjoy cold soggy buns and rubbery hot dogs from popping up in the "Recently Discussed Complaints" side menu (yes, I realize this comment does exactly that, feel free to get a kick out of mentioning that in your "you're a baby" reply).

    Enjoy your hot dogs!

    You have a very good complaint, even if it could be considered something petty, which it is not. Watery bread is disgusting. Sounds like the food was bad. Then again you get what you pay for.

    Trevor, you are right about that, I got what I paid for. Looking at my complaints individually it can understandably seem like a petty complaint (other than the inedible food, which is an automatic complaint), but one thing after the other is annoying enough to want to tell people about. Anywho, this Jason Tillo kid's some character. I was actually pissed off at his first comments to me but upon further investigation he's a super troll and I've actually laughed at some of his insane replies to people.

    And Jason,
    Trust me. You'll never work where I work. You'd need at least an elementary school education first.

    Jason,
    No, [censored], where I work you need an education and an interview, which is basically a personality and skills evaluation. If that sounds scary to you, it's because your personality has the appeal of a dead skunk and your skills amount to your comments on this website.

    I gotta admit, you kinda crack me up. You're a pretty good troll.

    Mac, why have you completely changed your style of writing? When you first started commenting you wrote literately and intelligently. Guess you're going for a new angle. Seems like more trouble than it's worth though.
