Coming down for a vacation? Live here?

See how clean that restaurant is before you go:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Interesting, and depressing if one of your favs is on the list and not passing the inspections well.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Interesting.
The Outback Steakhouse I ate at last weekend had some cleanliness (food contact surface) issues listed.
Different eyes see different things. Different hearts beat on different strings.
But there are times for you and me when all such things agree.

Cleanliness, or lack thereof, is the direct result of good, or poor, management. Nothing more, and nothing less.

I used to manage the Sweetwater Cracker Barrel, in the mid-late 70s, and I learned that there is always one way to tell whether or not you want to eat at a resturant. Before you sit down, walk to the restrooms, and look around. If it is not clean, you Don't want to eat there. The kitchen will usually be on par with the restaurant's bathrooms.

That's something I learned from the company's founder. Clean bathroom, clean kitchen. Dirty bathroom, dirty kitchen. It isn't always the case, but more times than naught.

That is very good advice. Does anyone have any chains or particular places they stay away from? My two individual places are both in Las Vegas. Buffet at the Sahara and the Rain Forest Cafe at the MGM. The Atlanta Bread Co. at St. Pete's Baywalk had some problems in the past but great now. The Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station in NYC made my wife very sick. She threw up while in line at TKTS -yuck. For a minute the cops thought she was drunk but when I told them where we had lunch they became very sympathetic -maybe they know something...
