I love doughboys. Or I guess I should say I used to love it there. The food is great. There are very few things I have not enjoyed here. The blueberry flax seed pancakes, after-school special and banana pancakes are the real reason I come here though. Anyway, after my experience today I felt compelled to post something because my service was so appalling. I ordered a drink and my glass came covered in red gunk. Considering they have a B health rating I was nervous that it was a used glass and that it hadn't just bumped up against something. I waited almost 10 minutes for our waiter come back and finally I went inside and asked for a new drink and cup. He brought out a plastic cup, slammed it down in front of me and stated that nobody had used this glass! He then continued to ignore us for the rest of the meal. Someone else brought out our food and he never once came over to ask how the food was or if we needed anything. We did- refills. He grabbed one for my roommate but not me. He then disappeared for another 20 minutes when he finally came out and we had to ask for our check.
This place has become so trashy. They have become so lazy. As someone else has pointed out they have had graffiti on their windows for months now. I won't be going back to Doughboys because it's just not worth the bad service. I'm just going to have to learn how to make those flax seed pancakes.
How about you chowhounders? Do you have Doughboys service nightmares or great experiences? Maybe, I've just gotten a few bad ones.
