23 People Confess Their Worst Restaurant Experiences


Took my fiancee’s parents to a restaurant that was pretty crowded. We ended up being sat near the double doors going into the kitchen. Just as our food arrived, we got treated to a memorable story from someone in the kitchen speaking very, very loudly. He described, in detail, a sexual encounter he saw online between a woman and a boa constrictor. No detail was too small for him to recount. He painted a very clear picture.


There was one time where I ordered something, and the brought the wrong order. When I asked them to bring he correct order, they tried to charge me twice, and when the manager said, they can do what they want, I told them, that’s fine but I’ll report you for fraud and you’ll come under investigation. Never ate at that place ever again.


One time I went to a restaurant with my friends and there was literally no one working there. It was open, and two other tables were occupied, but no one was around so we sat ourselves and waited. One of the groups had food, so we kept waiting. After awhile we started looking around, going as far as poking our heads into the kitchen. No dice. We even went out the back door to see if all the employees were maybe smoking in the parking lot, but nope. Just gone. Not in the bathrooms, either. It wasn’t bad, but it was definitely bizarre. We left after about 45 minutes, but one group had food when we got there so clearly there had been employees there shortly before we arrived, but right after serving them they all decided to just leave for almost an hour.


There’s a local restaurant I go to periodically with friends that has really shitty food but good drinks. I always tell myself “Don’t order food” and each time I order fucking food. Anyways, one memorable experience was just a few weeks ago. We all decide to order food and this place is notorious for taking forever. After waiting 45 minutes for a quesadilla, veggie burger, and a chicken sandwich a waiter (not ours) walks over to tell us our waiter is “sick and went home about a half hour ago, what can I get you?” What. The. Fuck. He didn’t put our order in. So for some god forsaken reason we decide to order again and they take another lifetime. FINALLY the food comes out and of course its the worst food we’ve all had and 2/3 orders were completely fucked. 0/10 would not recommend.
