Taqueria Alonzo Restaurant / Banch of crooks

1 United States

Taqueria Alonzo in downtown Albany, Oregon, is apparently run by a bunch of
crooks. We love the food, which is fair-priced Tex-Mex style, and the
service would be perfect except for one BIG flaw:

They steal your money. If you pay with a debit or credit card, they do it by
tacking on a little extra to the tip line or the total line. Their credit
card machine is one that prints TWO copies (not carbon copies), where you
fill out one for them, then you have to refill out another for your own
records. We started noticing when we'd go to balance our checkbooks that the
amount we paid for them was a few bucks higher. At first we thought, our
bad, we must have tipped more than we remembered. Then we started paying
attention to it and found that it was $3 bucks here, $5 bucks there...no
matter how blatantly clear we were in writing out the numbers on the ticket.

I talked to the manager who pretended not to understand me, but then he
offered to refund my money. I tried explaining that this was a matter of
ETHICS, not a few dollars; I do not take kindly to being swindled. He was
blas.
