Eagle's Deli...

vegathechosen | Jun 23, 2008 06:23 AM

Eagle's Deli is one of my favorite spots that ive been going to for a few years and its always been solid. I stopped in a couple weeks ago cuz i was in the area and was shocked when i walked in..... The atmosphere of Eagle's has always screamed local from the prices, chalkboard menu, to the thousands of people plastered on the wall for devouring the almighty Godzilla Burger. Its all changed. The first thing I noticed was the menu, the menu had switched from chalkboard about a year ago so why am i bringing it up now? well it seems the menu has blacked out spots where they raised the price for everything around 2 dollars... it's understandable in a sense cuz the rising gas prices but i presume their ingredients are local so what gives?

So i order my meal and go take a seat in the dining room where'd id normally gaze at the walls plastered with photo's of people who have stretched their guts and finished the Godzilla Burger.... Yea they're gone... The walls now are just a blank depressing white... nothing to it now just boring.

After about a 10 minute wait my burger comes out and its good but while im eating im so saddened about paying nearly 10 bucks for the burger i can barely eat... I take a look to the walls for some inspiration and im reminded they took down the pictures....

I know im nit picking and probably being a jerk but cripes i can't help from thinking that this is all the Travel Channels fault. It seems like Eagle's jumped the shark hard and it sucks. The whole magic of what was Eagle's is no longer in my opinion.

Does anyone else have any thought on this? Am I out of line? If so put me in my place.

Oh what inspired this thread was seeing Eagle's on what else but the Travel Channel last night....
