Tammy and I met up with fellow foodcasters Joe and Lisa from Cheap Date to have brunch at Glenn’s Diner, a place known for its good seafood and bottomless bowls of cereal. The food was great, and the company was even better! Listen in to hear what happened when the four of us ducked into a Starbucks to record our review of Glenn’s.

  1. Went to Glenn’s last night, Tuesday 5/1/07. We had a 10 minute wait for three. Got a table ordered sodas and appetizer. 15 minutes later got appetizer, 20 minutes later waiter informs us he forgot to put our order in. Then he says he lost our order, could we please reorder. Two of us did reorder, the third person was no longer interested. 10 minutes later waiter returns to inform us that he was out of the catfish I ordered. Doesn’t offer an alternative or ask if we want to look at menu again. We said we didn’t want anything else. After sitting there for almost an hour, the waiter, who also said he was the manager, gave us our bill and didn’t offer to comp us for anything (not even the sodas) and really didn’t apologize. I’ll never eat at Glenn’s again.

  2. Yikes! That makes me want to avoid Glenn’s too… even if they have bottomless bowls of Frosted Flakes.
