The dining establishment formerly known as Fuddruckers is the latest recipient of a nasty email:

I visit this Fuddruckers location, on average, at least twice a week (a staff member recognized me and said hello tonight). On almost every visit, I order a Market Toss Salad and get a drink to go, which rings in at almost $11.00

Tonight was the first time I've seen Pradeep, who seemed to be bossing around the man I'd always assumed was the manager. Admittedly it was busy in there. I walked in and there was no line, Pradeep was the only person behind the register. He seemed disinterested to wait on me. I ordered my meal to go, which he rang up as eat in (I noticed because he handed me a regular drink cup). I reminded him it was to go, and did I need to tell the kitchen? He said he would do it and walked back there.

He did not tell the kitchen. When I was buzzed, he was standing around in the kitchen, my salad was served for eat-in and had no garlic bread. I told someone else it was to go. Pradeep came over, and up-ended my salad into a styrofoam to-go container. I asked someone twice for bread (which ended up being stale), utensils, and a bag.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, please feast your eyes on my not-so-tasty Fuddrucker's Salad:

Disgusting! I have no problem waiting when a restaurant is busy, but serving something like this is totally unacceptable.

If there is a question about the details of my experience, I've included my number below. Please don't call me just to apologize.

It's lettuce and a chicken breast...HOW DO YOU FUCK THAT UP?

Sadly fuddruckers has gone down hill over the years, I use to love going to the one in Baltimore city with my family for a burger.

But eh, pepsi now *gag* instead of coke and the food just isn't as tasty as it use to be, just not worth the price. Wendy's is just as good, half the price and generally pleasant service :p

Really, the one comment I have to make is... ummmm... you are going to fuddruckers for a salad. What do you expect?

Did they ever respond?
