Lloyd's Grill Complaint - Fire The Cook - Eat there if you dare
VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON -- Lloyd's Grill, on SE 162nd in Vancouver, has recently changed hands. It used to be a sports bar, and in fact still is, but whoever is doing the cooking is a public menace. I ordered a french dip with a side of potato salad -- harmless, right? The meat was GREEN and it had been microwaved to the consistency of a manila envelope. No taste at all. Put that aside. I tried the potato salad...large cold chunks of cooked potato and not too much else. No flavor except for potato. The waitress felt sorry for me, said I didn't have to pay, and brought me a cup of "clam chowder". What it was was cold watery potato soup with chopped freeze-dried vegetables and some bacon bits. I searched and searched -- not a clam to be found.
My husband did better than I did -- chicken strips are the same no matter where you go and he was nice enough to share with me. We agreed that there was no use going back. The waitress was nice enough, and when I pointed out that we were the only ones in the restaurant, she said they had big crowds on Friday and Saturday nights for the live music....nice they have something to keep the doors open and the bills paid, it sure isn't the cooking.
