Does it seem like as long as the restuarant is an "independent", OC Weekly always gives it a great review?
The only bad reviews are if they try out some bigger, corporate chain or something.
I have tried several of these "independents" based on their reviews and most of them are horrible.
There have been some exceptions...like the Chicken Pie Shop in Anaheim, TK burger in Newport...but most of the others are not that good and there are so many better restaurants that are usually better than the one they reviewed.
The reviews just seem so inaccurate to me.
