Restaurateurs please think - Example: I won't be eating at Pork Barrel in Alexandria

I really REALLY wanted to try it. There's even a door right off its (rear-situated) parking lot! And the staff are so nice!!!

But I went in and, sadly, went right out.

There's not a seat I can sit in. I'm old, and use a walker, and I can't get into a booth or sit on a high bar chair/stool ... and that's all the seating there is. So I won't be eating there, and neither will my family.

I've noticed this trend elsewhere. For instance, Lost Dog has only a very few tiny tables, mostly booths and stools. There are other examples.

Don't forget us fat, weak old folks!
