    Where are Gordon Ramsay or Robert Irvine when you need them? Sounds like a Kitchen Nightmare episode to me! I can't recall a restaurant experience THAT bad! When you said "initial bill" where you able to get an adjustment?

    I'd say that meal was pretty much a total disaster. And I would be pursuing it socially and loudly. No manager? The alarm bells went off for me then. Someone is in charge, even if it's the head waitperson. The place also has an owner. I'd find him/her and see if they make it right.

    As for how much of a restaurant disaster I tolerate, much has to do with the price (higher prices = higher expectations) and the place's willingness to fix things as much as they can. In this case it sounds like there was zero interest in fixing anything, which would make me much less tolerant. Look for the "Closed for Remodeling" sign on their door soon.

    This is why I love Pizza Ranch. Minimal pretension and you always know what to expect.

    We almost sent out a raiding party mid-meal to walk across the street to the tavern and grab some pizzas and burgers.
