El Rancho Grande Informative - This Is Funny - Food

Review by Octslavia on 2008-05-15
TROY, OHIO -- So awhile back my cousin Alicia and I decided that we were going to go to a Mexican restaurant called El Rancho Grande. It is my favorite Mexican restaurant. So we went and sat down and were waiting to order. Well why you are waiting they bring you out a basket of chips and salsa. So we began to eat them and soon placed our order. Our server was a very nice man and you could tell he didn’t speak very much English. We soon got our food and began to eat; well I reached my hand into the basket of chips and pulled out a moldy chip. I was like what the hell? I then asked my server nicely “Do you often serve moldy chips?” He looked at me with a weird face and began apologizing numerous times. “I sooo sorry, I soo sorry. I do not know where dis moldy chip came from. Ohh so sorry so sorry.” This immediately put a smile on my face when he left the table.

It was hilarious how rowed up he got. I told him that it was okay. He still felt bad though, so we ended up finishing our meals and left him about $15 on a $35 check. I am sure we made his day as much as he made mine.

A moldy chip would destroy my appetite. I thought their chips were fresh, made daily at the restaurant. How would a chip get moldy? All this considered, I think you & the server handled the situation quite well. He probably never expected extra $$ after serving a moldy chip.

Argh! Now the server is going to make sure every customer gets a 'moldy' chip!
