I went to visit this restaurant last night based on the CP review as well as others on the net. My experience was so unbelievably bad that I can't understand how anyone would continue to patronize such a deplorable restaurant. We showed up right around 8 PM - ample time to receive our food and eat before the 9 PM closing time. There was another couple sitting in the booth behind us who arrived a short time after us. The very nice lady who was our server waited on the table behind us but didn't take our orders for another 10 minutes or so. The fact that they were out of just about everything they advertise on their menu should have been my first clue that this was not going to be a good experience. When she finally brought us our glasses of Countrytyme Lemonade (I saw the container on the counter), she took our food orders and vanished for another 50 minutes. Imagine our surprise when a gentleman arrived at our table with our food in to-go containers and informed us that they were closing and that we needed to leave. The other table had received their food and were eating - they were not asked to leave, however. We were not being disruptive nor did we complain about the long wait for service. We were just sitting at the table chatting. We were so shocked at the fact that the restaurant gave us our food to-go that we paid and left. When we got home, we discovered that the food was barely edible - particularly the fish which was fishy and overcooked. The disgustingly sweet beans and yams tasted like they came out of a can. There was no bread despite the fact that the menu said that the meal came with bread. The menu says that they have chicken breasts, but, in reality, all they serve are wings. The wings were OK but I think that they were frozen Costco wings. The only part of the meal that was remotely edible was the macaroni and cheese. I will NEVER go back here again and I will spread the word among my friends, as well. I never hope for a restaurant to close but, based on my experience last night, this one certainly deserves to close.
