While I was waiting for my food I noticed I could see the two cooks on the line cooking food since I was sitting across from the cook line. They were not in uniform. Both highly tattooed both wearing a lot of big dirty looking Jewelry. Both had goatees that were long and not kept neat or groomed. Their goatees were not restrained by a beard net or braided to prevent hair from falling in the food. One had a rock t-shirt on. The other had a sports jersey that did not have sleeves of any kind. His armpit hair was very noticeable and was not restrained in any way to prevent hair or sweet from falling in the food. All of the other stuff had on uniforms expect for the two cooks. I told the Manager that his cook was not wearing sleeves and it could be a possible health code violation and his armpit hair was sticking out. He informed me he would have him put on his uniform. I was there for another hour. The Manager did not pull the cook off the line to have him change his shirt. I also noticed the cooks where touching the cooked food with there bare hands. The manager did not give any kind of discount on are meal or try to make it better in any way. He did not fix the problem with the cook but just blow me off. I have worked as a cook in Restaurants before. Our Mangers would never let their cooks walk behind the cook line without a proper uniform. Also the Mangers I have worked for could never blow off a customer and would make sure to fix the problem ASAP.
