bubbys in dumbo

sam | Jun 20, 2006 10:45 AM

i feel weird considering how controversial my previous post was but i wanted to mention how awful dinner was last night at bubbys in dumbo.

im a fan of bubbys overall. decent bbq, good burgers, good sides, pie, drinks, etc...but the dumbo branch has gotten progressively worse lately and i was wondering if anyone thought they might be closing up shop either soon or in the near future.

monday night dinner... there were probably 20 tables and 1 waitress handling everyone. there were 3 other servers who tried to do everything but it was a mess. people waiting for a table in the empty room gave up and walked themselves to a free table, people were walking to the kitchen to cancel orders, people walking to the waitress to give them their credit card, etc...

the guiness we ordered was sour and rank, the waitress took so long to get our salad after i already started eating that we cancelled it, they forgot our ice cream on our pies which took 2 walks to the kitchen to request, and the key lime pie tasted of heavy cream cheese.

everything was a mess really. the bathroom had table napkins instead of paper towels in the dispenser...i can go on and on.

i always felt that the dumbo branch was off in some small way but i have to wonder if business is good enough for them to continue.
