I will never go to Don Chuchos again

I had been going to Don Chuchos on Route 35 in Ocean Township for years. My husband and I loved their chimmichangas. Since having a baby, we haven't been out to eat all that often, so we were excited when we decided to venture out with my parents and my 16 month old son.

We ordered a 4 item combination plate with 2 shrimp and 2 chicken. The 2 plates were $30.00 each. We were then told we would be charged an extra $4.00 on each order for a sharing charge. I asked if we could order a salad or soup instead of being charged for nothing. They said "No. You must order another entree".

So they brought out our dinners after almost a 25 minute wait, and each order of chimmis had a side of rice and beans. And for your $4.00, do you get another small side of rice and beans? No.

I called the next day and spoke with the day manager who was very nice, and understanding. She said that the server should have used discretion, and not charge the sharing fee. She told me that she would forward my comments and phone number to the manager, who just called me 10 minutes ago.

He was extremely rude, and tried to explain to me that it's completely within his right (which it is) to charge an extra $8.00 because "he's losing money" on our dinner.

Ask me how he's losing money on 8 chimichangas which totalled $65.00.

Case in point, watch how you order your dinner there. I will never set foot in that place again.
