    I've been at 2 restaurants in a small Kentucky town. One was a McDonald's and the booth I sat at had ketchup smeared on the wall. When I went back several months later I sat at the same booth just to see if the ketchup had been removed. Nope...still there!

    The other restaurant was a sports bar and my husband and I decided to eat a quick meal at the bar. While we were waiting for our food a cockroach scurried past our drinks. The bartender caught and killed it like it was just a normal part of his day. We could barely eat our sandwiches after that. The restaurant went out of business not too long after that.

    You'd think I'd be turned off of restaurants, but no, I still like to eat out! Glutton for punishment, I guess.
    (No pun intended!)

    Noy trying to get in-between you two, but Bobby I use to visit a restaurant bar in Ft. Lauderdale that the theme was peanuts shells all over the floor. All tables had a big basket of peanuts on them, and you just threw your shells on the floor, it was kind of neat to be messy. The clientele there was not shabby either and the place was always busy.

    No need to worry Marie.
    Opinions are just opinions and one is no better than the other especially when dealing with public places like restaurants.

    To me, as long as whatever goes on in the front of the house is legal and doesn’t reach food service or preparation areas, I’m good.
    If a certain ambiance of a restaurant doesn’t appeal to enough of the public to warrant it staying open then it will close.
    Personally, I wouldn’t go into a place with a mechanical bull but that doesn’t mean that my opinion will stop people from going to one.

    Again, as long as the food and drink preparation and service areas meet with or are better than the health codes, it’s all good.

    Going into a sports bar that serves peanuts and peanut shells are thrown all over the floor, it a whole lot different that going into an upscale steakhouse restaurant and observing pieces of food on the floor. That food either wasn't picked up by the bus person cleaning the table or put their by a bus person cleaning the table without a bus pan.

    And more fun, huh? It's not like you can shuffle thru p-nut shells while going to your table or booth that often.

    Not that I like seeing bugs anywhere, but if you only knew what you were really eating, you would not even eat at home. Luckily ,we rarely eat out so we just take our risks at home. No yelling whinny kids, sulking teenagers, or parents who bring their problems to the table. :D
