A little hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant I like in the Palm Springs area--El Gallito in Cathedral City--has more than a dozen "rules" for patrons. Some are posted on the walls, some are printed in the menu, and some are listed on a table top tent card.
Now, each of the rules is generally reasonable and some are quite common to other restaurants, but we always get a chuckle out of the sheer number of rules we must follow in order to eat there.
Have you ever been to a restaurant that has either a large number of "rules" or posts some uncommon rules? Please share your favorites. In the meantime, here are the rules from El Gallito:
--We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
--Do not block entrance way.
--No shoes, no shirt, no service.
--Not responsible for your lost or stolen articles.
--No checks accepted.
--One guest check per table.
--All extras and sides ordered will be charged accordingly.
--For those sharing a meal, we charge $3 for the extra plate.
--Beer and wine served only to guests ordering a food entree.
--For your safety, a maximum of 3 drinks per person will be served.
--Beer and wine are served to our guests who do not seem intoxicated.
--Chips and salsa are gladly served after your party has placed the food order.
--Entrees that include rice and beans will not be split by the kitchen.
