Waffle House Complaint - Appalling Sanitation
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- Two or so weeks ago, I went to a concert with my boyfriend and one of our mutual friends (who is male) and Carowinds in NC/SC. The concert ended around midnight, and we were all starved afterwards. While trying to decide where to eat, we debated about going to a few places, and then the other male friend suggested that we go to the Waffle House a few miles from where we were. I had previously never been there, so I didn't ask if we could go somewhere else. God, I wish I had. We get there, and the place is swarming with flies and some sort of unknown crawling insects. Being guys, they were happily ordering hash browns and grilled cheeses, while I hesitated to touch anything. Our waiter was sneezing and coughing everywhere, and muttered something about having the flu but having to come into work anyway. After that, I was already VERY hesitant to eat anything. Then, I watched as a female employee opened boxes of raw meat and picked up countless bloody hamburger patties and strips of bacon with no gloves and shove them into a refrigeration device. After she was finished, she just left all the blood and boxes sitting there, walked over to a bucket of dirty water, swished her hands around for literally three seconds, and proceeded to make my waffle right next to all the hamburger remnants.
You know that there's something seriously wrong when the hygiene in a restaurant makes a sixteen year old freak out. I wouldn't suggest eating here under any circumstances, let alone bringing your kids here.
