Once again I have found a restaurant that will not see my return.
We stopped at the Sirloin Stockade in Round Rock on Monday. We have eaten here many times.
It has nothing to do with food. The workers were excellent. The girl taking my money was smiling and happy to see us - it seemed. Our waiter was right there for us. One cook worker took time to show me hidden restroom...with a smile. The guy cooking steaks, I think, was more interested in getting a tip in his jar than being functional. None of this was a problem. Wait. Maybe the lack of chocolate cake for my wife might be an influence.
The problem is the price. A cheap buffet type place should not cost almost $40 to eat. That is way over the top. We use to eat in one in Corsicana before the Flu bug hit. The price was quite reasonable. But, now, $20 each. This is outrageous for a simple buffet. And that price was with the Senior discount.
I still go to the Golden Corral - but never go on the weekend. These places serve canned green beans, canned corn, canned everything. The fried okra was done 3 hours ago and is mushy. The fried fish is okay albeit sometimes a big grease laden. Pies and so forth are okay except I am diabetic. Whatever happened to the sugar free cookies and ....
No sense going on.
I suppose the problem is the costs that have gone up when there was a perceived shortage - supply problems. That has ended. Did the cost come down?
2 years ago, I could buy 2 liter Coke products on special for $1. Now Cokes are up to $2.50. Why. I know, the water to make cokes has increased or the bottle caps or the plastic bottles. Nope. None of that. It is just greed.
