These guys are now on my 3 strikes you're out list. I've only ordered salads.

The first time I went - I had a great salad. You pick the ingredients from a list on the wall - veggies, meats, cheeses, dressing. The only thing that put me off was when the guy behind the counter yelled at me to get the lettuce part of the salad out of the fridge for him, even though I was walking away and he was closer. Umkay.

Second time: I waited almost 20 minutes for my salad. There were only two people in line ahead of me and no one else waiting. I have no idea why it took them that long to throw a couple things in a bowl. I blame society (or really good weed).

Third time: Two of the ingredients were missing - which is kind of important because that was the meat and the cheese part. I have no idea if they used the right salad dressing, because there wasn't enough for me to actually taste. This time I was the only one in there, and they still f'd it up. Next time I'll just stop at the community garden down the street and eat out of people's plots like a bunny.

Prediction: closed in 6 months.
