Prime Time Steak House Complaint - Don't Ever Go There! Ahh!

Review by nomodrama on 2008-08-04
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I started the day planning to take my boyfriend out for a great dinner for his birthday. He chose the place he wanted to go. It happened to be Prime Time Steak House on the north side of Houston. It was in the middle of the day on a Thursday. The place was pretty empty. Looked at the menu it was a little pricey but we wanted a great meal. I figure the food and drinks must match the price. I order a glass of tea and calamari to start. As a drank my tea to my horror I felt something in my mouth that didn't feel right. It slid out of my mouth into my hand (OH MY GOD!) it was a ROACH! a brown disgusting ROACH in my tea. It was in my tea. I sucked it up threw my straw and in my MOUTH it went. I put it on the table and ran to the bathroom. I screamed in horror. After being sick and washing my mouth out. I came back to the table. My boyfriend didn't know what happened. I pointed at the thing on the table. He was disgusted. My God I am still HORRIFIED. The Owner came over to talk to us.

There was nothing he could say that would make this alright. Then one manager came over and wiped the roach off the table and dismissed the whole thing as if it never happen and treated us rudely. I am truly upset and disappointed.

I had a boss that drank the chicken soup from one of those coffee vending machines,he had a gap between his two front teeth,when he finished the last gulp he felt something in his teeth,it was a roach trapped between his front teeth.It was classic!

That is pretty gross,guess you won't be going there anymore?

"There was nothing he could say that would make this alright."

you already knew nothing he said would please you.

if you suspect a real issue, call your local health department.

I'm speechless as I gag and my eyes water...I can't even imagine what I'd do...I, I can't even say anything...Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....Ewwwwwwwwwwwww..Yuuuuuuuckkk...Oh man...I know what I'll be dreaming of tonight...Wow...I just don't know...I've often thought about "WHAT IF"...what if I drank a drink and at the bottom of the paper cup, I'd find a bug after drinking it all..and ever since then, I just couldn't drink, even through a straw if I can't see through the cup...So, I'd order a 7up or Sprite and take a look in it before drinking. If it's in a restaurant, served in a clear glass, I always hold it up and inspect it...Yesterday I tried a Sweet Tea from Mc Donalds and that thought came to mind. So, I waited until I got to my parents' house and I took the lid off and poured it into a glass for inpection...I can't drink without checking it out. When I buy the hot chocolete, I always figure if there is somethng in there, it would be dead from the hot water and would be floating ontop, so I check that out too. Basher doesn't get invited out into public places very often.. :(

Roaches get a bad rap..they are just nature's little recyclers... if it weren't for roaches we'd be up to our bagungas in dead organic matter..(read Crap)..
Roaches are our friends..
Another way of saying it is that they have fed me and my family for 30 years...

The poster was fed by them too...THAT'S the problem!

My mom always said that we all eat a pound of dirt before we die.. I suppose roaches could be included..

If they get in MY way, It's ashes to ashes and guts to guts.

Wow that is nasty! I honestly don't know what you expected them to do though after you say yourself nothing they say will make it right. I hope you didn't eat there! Or pay for those drinks!

LOL OF!! Roaches are our friends? I'll be happy to box up some of my 'so big you can saddle them', Texas-sized roaches to keep you company. Some of ours are so big, they get their own US Census forms. Pretty disgusting experience for the OP. Probably explains why the place was nearly empty. Oddly enough, most diners opt for the 'roach-free' menu items.

LOL Doc... "roach-free" menu..
That's an interesting menu option..
I wonder if german roaches are served on the side, I.e, german roaches in rathskellers or oriental roaches in Chinese restaurants..?
