As a visitor to Charlotte we read newspaper food critics expecting help in finding a good place. My general conclusion is they're not talking about the same places we go to.
Recently, based on glowing reviews we went to Adam's, Senior Tequila and Saigon Cafe. They were all mediocre at best. One example: last week Senior Tequila had NO tequila - the waiter said there was some mixup. What?
We get very frustrated throwing good money at bad food, service and ambience.
What's wrong here?
