From bbqboy in topic 323073, this deserves its own topic:
What makes a good, or superb restaurant reviewer, in your opinion?
Experience in the Kitchen or Front?
No experience in Same?
A mom who can cook?
I'm just interested, because as someone who likes to eat good food but has never worked in the industry, I come on here to tell folks about tasty/new places in my area, or answer travel/dining questions, not to critique places that are less than stellar.
