Bums visit your table during dinner – I went there on the recommendation of a co-worker. Food was ok, though the wait was long- 30 minutes the place was empty. Near the end of the dinner, a bum walked to the back of the resturant where I was sitting and began to beg for money. Told him to beat it. Immediately paid my bill and left.
Called the owner the next day, told him I spent $40 and was harrassed by a bum. He asked me if the bum was black of white. I said what difference does that make. He said "You should have knocked him out." Told him that's your job. What a loser.
I am giving one star only because I have to. It would be one star if the bum could have sang at the table.
Rude Service / Refill Scam – I went here for lunch with co-workers. A few of us ordered pop; it was served in small glasses. The server kept asking if we wanted more pop, we accepted and she refilled our glasses. Then we got the bill... we were charged full price for each refill. We asked the manager at the counter when we paid about it, he pointed to the price of pop on the menu. We noted that there was no mention of charging for refills. We were polite; the manager was rude, said "you must not be from Chicago" as if all restaurants in Chicago scammed their patrons? We are in fact from Chicago, we told him. His reply? ?Well this isn?t McDonald?s.? Charming man, really. Great business sense. We paid for the refills, but the attitude was free.
