Long John Slivers Complaint - Paying One Price And Saying Another

Review by DFA_TMPhillips635 on 2011-05-29
Well I've been going to Long John Slivers for a long time. I'VE SEEN THE AD on T.V. TO GET THE family meal for ten dollars, but went to get it and it comes out to be 45.00, not 30.00 for three meals.

I was not pleased about this and thinking about never going back.

Did you check the receipt to see why the price was different?

When you complained to the person at the cash register, what was the explanation?

I was in a LJS in about 1989. I wonder if they have changed since then.

Not sure if it was the same scenario, but quite often, KFC and other chicken joints in particular tend to do the same thing. The meals usually don't include the drinks, and the difference in price can be fairly staggering. I eat at LJS frequently, and noticed this when ordering combos.

It's also possible the franchise you visited is not participating in the promotion. I wonder the same thing - what did they say when you asked about the discrepancy?

Check your receipt, and don't go there again !

How many people were you planning on feeding, the Second Marine Division? The $10 deal they advertise on TV is not for a single person, but for a family. That is eight (8) pieces of fish, a side (probably a pint) of cole slaw, and an order of Hush Puppies. The drinks and possibly another side or two could explain the other fifteen dollars, but no sensible human being is going to eat one of those deals by themselves. Whiteduck is right, the Taco Bell/LJS in Casa Grande does not change the oil in their Fryolaters often enough, and old oil does soak into the food. Yuch-h-h-h!

When your total came to $45.00 what did the cashier say when asked why a advertised $10.00 meal (times 3) came to $45.00? Did you just pay the $45.00 without asking why?

I need to correct me previous post. It is eight pieces of CHICKEN, not fish, cole slaw and Hush Puppies in the $10 Meal Deal. I was v ery tired from mopving. Please forgive me.
