    How Do You Tell a Restaurant that their food sucks?

    This is a fairly new restaurant in our area.  They told me their food is fresh, but it is canned and frozen. U cn tell the diff.  They told me that they also butter their buns and toast them on the grill.  They didn't do that when we went there yesterday.  The mashed potatoes were awful and they were not from real potatoes, they were from a box.  You can tell the difference.  The gravy was out of a can and that you can tell the difference also.  The corn was from a can and and I hate canned corn.  Onion Rings were frozen and not fresh.....

    Have you ever watched the program Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay? He tells Restaurant owners in no uncertain terms and with a lot of expletives. I wouldn't recommend that method. Trouble is, most people won't tell the restaurant owner, they just penalize the waiter/waitress on the tip for the kitchen's ineptitude or the owner's cheap food budget. It is amazing how people think they can fool people by telling them things are homemade when they aren't.

    I have asked to see the manager in the past when I had a complaint about the food. If they're a reputable business then they usually try to do something to make it right for you.

      Well, in that case, go on Yelp or Foursquare or whatever other sites allow you to "review" restaurants and let others know of your poor experience there, word will get around and the restaurant will either shape up or close up.

      I posted it on Yelp.  I don't think they read the comments about them on Restaurant.com.  I didnt want to make a new account, but there are some bad comments about their restaurant there.

    Carefully, after you have your food in hand lest someone do something nasty to it.  A letter to the owner after eating there might be the most effective way.

      Yes, you would already have the food in hand, in order to realize it 'sucks.'  I'd tell the manager, AND ask for the owner's contact information.  They refuse?  It's public record--you can find it.

    Best way is to never go back and tell all your friends...they'll get your message loud and clear when their restaraunt is empty and they are losing money.

    Call the waiter to the table, quietly tell him to remove the food it is not cooked. While he is doing that, gather who is at the table and leave.
