Given the amazing response to the "Rave reviews, but I don't get it?" thread, I think there may be room for the inverse. How about it, 'hounds? What are the places that your fellow chowhounds (or reviewers in the media or other forums) hate, but you secretly love (or at least don't dislike)? And *why* do you love the place? Does it bring back memories? Is it the atmosphere?
If it's the food you love, this thread might be your chance to set your fellow hounds straight on what the *right* things to order are at the places that get bad reviews - the "secret" dishes that they get sublimely right in an otherwise barren menu wasteland.
