Rico's Diner (Oakland) slipping?

10foot5 | Dec 10, 201002:01 PM

Went today for a Rico burger and what I received was nothing like what I've had in the past.

Well it was "like" the burgers I've raved about in the past in that it looked similar and had the same components. But it was a pale shadow of its former self.

The meat used to be, consistently, plump, moist, perfectly charred, and as flavorful as you could imagine. Today's was a flat disc, over-cooked and almost completely tasteless. They must have changed their meat or their method.

It did not seem to me to be simply a result of a bad day in the kitchen - this was a completely different animal.

Any other reports on Rico's lately?
