We had a friend who liked to eat out and would try all the small, (what we refereed to as "hole in the wall" places), those little known tiny diners and dives as one TV show put it.
My wife and I liked to try tiny places out also when we we younger and our systems could deal with a bad food day. His recommendations, after trying one, were never visited. He thought this one particular place made the best grilled cheese sandwich in the world. It is very hard to screw up a grilled cheese sandwich, but this place did, they did not even try. I don't think anything was real food they used. Fake bread, (white sliced factory created monstrosity that did not deserve the term bread), fake cheese, (the kind you squirt over nacho's), and I think even fake margarine-which is fake butter.
And yeah why do people not say this is not financial advise when telling you to not buy something.
