These are Restaurant Red Flags According to Chefs
My Family Has Owned Restaurants Since 1989.
I have a horrid habit of looking around when I am at a restaurant. It's not that I am judging the place or anything like that, however, I pay attention to little details. I recently spoke to the new owner of Cantina Laredo Josh Douglas who echoed what I said, "People don't like walking into a restaurant and seeing dirty floors, or chairs or booths that are messed up or wobbly.". See, it's not just my family that walks into a restaurant and starts to notice every little detail.
I Once Went to a Restaurant With a Friend And I Refused to Eat There Because My Shoes Kept Sticking to the Ground.
