Beware the Backburner

Cliff | Dec 20, 2002 08:15 PM

My wife and I have been habituees of The Backburner in Hockessin, Delaware, just south of Kennett Square, PA and north of Wilmington, DE. The food customarily has been good and the service adequate at about $50 per plate with a glass of wine. We went there recently and it was terrible. The waiter should have been at home in bed instead of coughing and sneezing on the customers and the food. The food was just edible and we, the two of us celebrating a birthday, were sacrificed to the larger Christmas parties. We may never go back, but if we do it won't be in a holiday season.
