Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

Grindz is apparently under new management, according to our waitress there tonight. That being said, it does not appear that much has changed based on prior reviews.

The good thing about our visit was that the waitress was very nice.

That being said, here are the cons:

1) We both ordered our burgers medium, described by the waitress as "pink". BOTH were grey, beyond well-done. Its a burger joint, folks: for a $9 burger, I expect it right. And no, I don't send food back, I just don't come again.

2) The fries tasted straight out of the freezer. Not worth the $2 price tag (fries don't come with the burger? How odd) Onion rings probably were frozen too, but were OK. Again: fries are basic, get them right.

3) The wait was VERY long for food to come out. At 6 PM, there were only 2 other tables full in the place, and about 6 waitstaff out front, including an obviously bored hostess (which screams inexperienced management). So personnel was not the issue. It took about 5-10 minutes to get our pitcher of beer (only about 3 customers at bar, so why the wait?), and total of 20-30 minutes for burgers to come out. Overall, it was just too long a wait.

4) The plates were HOT, meaning they has sat under the heat lamp. Again, the place wasn't busy . . so why were they sitting? What were the 6 waitresses busy with?

5) The patrons at the bar were EXTREMELY drunk (slurring, unbalanced, you know), foulmouthed, and loud. That happens. In Grindz' defense, a manager eventually did come and discreetly ask them to be quiet, and they did. However, Grindz kept serving them alcohol after this. Inexcusable.

6) No pickle on the plate. Yes, picky I know. But come on. Burger, fries, no pickle? Do you not know what a burger plate is supposed to look like? Also: the pickle on their "All American" burger was a sweet pickle. Huh? Dill, people, dill is how its done.

7) Waitress was unable to answer simple questions about the menu. Example: the special was a $3 beer happy hour special. Based on waitress' description, we both thought we were getting a bucket of mini-bottles. It was instead a half pitcher. We were happy with the half-pitcher, but not what we were expecting.


Would I go back? Ehh, not for the food. I would maybe go for a beer, but there are so many other places to try, I don't see the point.
