Furr's Fresh Buffet Complaint - Where's the garbage pail
MOORE, OKLAHOMA -- Took my boy to supper last night. He conned me into taking him to the new Furr’s Fresh Buffet in Moore Oklahoma. I’m no fan of buffets or Moore Oklahoma. Moore is a sleepy little bedroom town – the result of affordable housing white flight meets backwoods Oklahoma redneck. Toby Keith is the most famous Moron if that tells ya anything.
The service at Furr’s Fresh Buffet was superior. The people manning the place were very nice and courteous with big smiles. I like nice people so that was indeed nice. Its set up kind of like a movie theater in that you pay first in order to enter. A little sticker shock – 18 bucks for an adult & child’s buffet plus two drinks. That seemed a little high but the boy’s worth it. So far so good and that’s because at this juncture we hadn’t eaten anything yet. I’ve never understood the fascination with buffets – All you can eat of bad food. I don’t like bad food and the food at this Furr’s was extremely bad. The first thing I tried to eat was something they called “Chicken Fried Chicken”.
I take that as meaning chicken fried the way you would fry chicken. Hmmm.. Okay that’s perfectly redundant. I’m sure it was “chicken fried” but not so sure I’d call it chicken. Then I proceeded to take a few bights of the following; chicken fried steak, fried catfish, hamburger steak, fried potatoes, green beans, turnip greens, meat loaf, succotash and other food like items that weren’t easily identifiable. It was all garbage that tasted like garbage that for the most part ended up in the garbage (I hope). The only thing that I sampled that was any good was the Texas toast which was very delicious. My son on the other hand thought it was the best place he’s ever eaten.
I recommend the membership avoid Furr’s Fresh Buffet if at all possible.
