When you pay I hear the waiter throws his apron into your lap and leaves with your credit card.

"Um, waiter, my steak is very tender and weepy. It found out that it wasn't on the menu under 'Starters.'"

We went there last night. The service and waiter were awful. After waiting 1 hour to get our food it was cold so the wife and I walked out.

The waiter tried to stop us yelling "You can't walk on your bill!" ... I turned around and said "I am not walking out on the bill, I am walking out on you.". He tried to throw a roll at me but he fumbled it.

Let me guess...but since the owner has a man-crush on you (even though your not all that good a customer), you will be welcomed back with open arms, while other steakhouses in the area get in a bidding war for the services of the soon to be unemployed waiter?

I saw on the news the signature steak is called "The Perfect 10" and remember thinking it must only come rare. :smiliepalm:

I've heard of prime rib and I've heard of rib-eye, but I've never seen a "prime rib eye" on a menu.

So which is it?

The one with au jus or the one you can buy yourself for sale at HEB and grill yourself?

"Prime" before the word ribeye indicates the quality of the cut. "Prime Rib" is a separate dish. The top 2% of beef in the US is graded prime. Interestingly, there is no such thing as a prime filet -- or if you get one than it is an awful filet mignon. Marbling is a primary consideration for designating beef as prime. Filet should never have any marbling.

I was at PAPAs steak house and the waiter brought out a rare steak to a girl who had ordered well done, LLong story short the waiter was fired the table got taken over by the manager and our $425 bill was compted, Now we protested the waiter getting fired and were told that the rules of the resturant are perfection and he dropped the ball.

The girl should've been fired for ordering a steak well done! Did she ask for A-1, too??

That's a pretty basic (and expensive) screw up, and that's definitely the kind of thing you can get fired for at a fine dining restaurant. You have to bring people what they ordered.

Still, Pappa's has the most exacting standards I've ever seen. I knew someone who made it to her last day of training there, but dropped a single drop of wine on the guest's table cloth as she poured a glass of wine. She was sent back to Day 1. She then turned the label of a bottle away from the guest while opening it on another training shift and was let go for those two mistakes.

I wonder if the waiter stormed out but not before throwing his/her order pad and half his uniform into the customers. :thinking:

I despise restaraunts like this and I despise people who go there. I despise everything about it!

We went to a place like this on the Riverwalk after my Mom's wedding and I refused to get a steak (the cheapest one was $40 even though I wasn't paying, obviously. I ordered fries and a margarita.

It's utterly disgusting that there are places like this while people, anywhere, go hungry.

Wow. I don't think there's anything wrong with an occassional splurge on a nice meal, if you can afford it. I don't think most people go there every night, but, on a birthday, anniversary or wedding, I don't see the harm in a nice meal.

The key is being able to appreciate the fact that you can afford an occasional nice meal and that, as you pointed out, not every one can.

Some of us work our asses off so that we can afford a nice meal once in awhile. Some of us save money, so that we can afford a nice meal once in awhile..... Some of us, because we do these things, are still very generous and charitable and never back away from fund raising or participation in charitable events. You know that about me, no?? ;)

I post this knowing full well that one day I could be one of those people that don't know where their next meal is coming from. No, I don't go to many places that have huge prices because I really should only do that on special occasions due to my perpetual list of other things to spend my money on. But I am thankful this is a country that allows me to be in a position to make certain choices.

I despise you, because you drive a vehicle when others don't have one.

I also despise you because you have constant unlimited access to a clean water supply when others do not.

And i really despise you because you have a house/apartment (built safely due to building codes) and watch TV and post on the message board when some people huddle in a cave and share body heat to make it through the night.

Except I really don't "despise" you because I can't fault you for having things others do not. It's not your fault.
