Woody's of Glen Burnie

Do not eat at Woody's carryout in Glen Burnie!
I went there with some friends this weekend. It's a hot dog/philly cheesesteak/hamburger place that recently opened up. We read about it in a local paper, which said it was no competition for Anne's Dari-creme (a landmark place in Glen Burnie that's wonderful) and it sure isn't. The food was horrible at Woody's. The homemade lemonade was spoiled and we did complain. The diet coke was just clear soda (apparently the diet coke syrup was out). We complained about that too. The sweetened ice tea was almost empty. Not enough for even one cup. The unsweetened ice tea also tasted stale. Both the syrup and lemonade were replaced much later after we finished eating our food outside. It's a carryout (not a dine-in restaurant), but most carryout's also have a few tables/benches outside. Woody's doesn't.So we ate outside on the curb with another customer. Three of us had tried the chili-cheese hot dogs. None of us liked it. The chili reminded me of sweet spaghetti sauce. The hotdog did not have the taste or texture of a good frankfurter (might have had pork or something mixed with beef). I saved half of my hotdog to bring home for my dogs (they eat anything and did eat it). I got sick when I got home and believe it is from our dinner. I would never eat at this place again. When we left Woody's, some customers drove up and my friend told them how horrible everything was. They got back in their car and left.
I mentioned Woody's to two different people I work with, and they said they also had gone there with their families and would never go back.
