Disappointing meal at University Teddy's

. . . so here is what I wrote to them

I've been a Teddy's customer since you were on Monsarrat and always been pleased, until today. I've been on a diet since September, but this week I've let myself have a few treats. A burger at Teddy's was one of them. I ordered a bigger blue cheese and bacon burger, fries and a chocolate malt. They told me they were out of malted milk today. Ok, things happen. It took about 15 minutes, but the food came. No shake, but he said that would be up soon. The fries were fine. Not the best I've ever had from Teddy's, but nothing wrong with them. The burger was disappointing. The meat was very well done. Not burt, but cooked till it was dry as dust, with no flavor and a rubbery texture. The bacon was two limp anemic half strips, again rubbery and not even warm. What ever it was pretending to be blue cheese was some sort of coarse powder (the bottom of the barrel so to speak?) with about as much blue cheese flavor as a pair of old gym socks. Again completely dried out. The bun and other toppings were adequate. The service was OK, pleasant if not prompt. Would have been nice to get my shake before I was almost done with the meal, but it did eventually arrive. Still for a $16 meal, I was less than impressed. Fortunately I've had many good meals at Teddy's so i will be back. But many more meals like this and I won't be.
