UnderCover Waitress: Consider This Dinner

Consider This Dinner

Relatively late afternoon for the whole family, so we took the kids to a local restaurant for dinner. The place has its ups and downs. On the plus side, it is clean. This is non-negotiable with me; if a restaurant is dirty, I won't eat there.

Also on the plus side, they have nice staff who stay forever. They really are lovely people. My youngest child is a bit of a celebrity there; many staff members fell in love with her back in her toddler days.

It seems once people get hired at this place, they stay. A restaurant taking good care of its front of house staff is a good reason to give them some business. And this diner must be doing something right, because I can't imagine the tips are high. Lots of elderly people frequent the place and the food is not expensive.

That being said, the food is not especially great. There is nothing wrong with it, but if you order fries they obviously came out of a bag in the freezer. They do have some interesting things on the menu, but much of the food is rather bland. If you are careful about ordering non-fried items, it is healthy.

My older child seems to be developing quite the gourmet taste. Resigned himself to the fact that we were going to the diner. He glanced at the menu and looked up at me. Said in a very calm voice, "Mom, I just want you to know, I do not consider this dinner."

Can't fault the kid for liking good food.
