92% Approval on Urbanspoon
I ‘ve come to the conclusion that you have to take online restaurant reviews with a grain of salt sometimes Forking Truck Loads of Salt.

I decided to try this one restaurant that had great reviews on three Forking review sites. On Urbanspoon they had a 92% approval rating. On Yelp they rate at 4 stars.

On Tripadvisor this same place has a 4.5 Rating out of 5.
I will tell you I first went to this Forking restaurant for lunch. My husband started with Minestrone Soup. The soup was very thin and burnt tasting with decomposing vegetables in it. The soup also lacked beans and pasta and was very Forking disappointing to say the least. Then our salads arrived. The Greens seemed fresh but were just Iceberg that was topped with vegetables that came from a can or a bottle served with bottle tasting dressing and dry chicken.
A few years went by and this place still has very good reviews and also was featured in our local paper so we decided to Forking try them for dinner hoping they were better for Forking dinner.
The dinner menu was made of mostly Chicken Dishes so I thought Dinner Chicken should be good. I soon received a generous amount of almost solid as rock dry almost Forking tasteless naked pale chicken covered in a thin, oily next to tasteless sauce served with nicely cooked pasta in that same dreadful sauce.
The dinner came with Garlic Toast that just tasted like Cooking Oil with maybe some butter and some dry almost tasteless herbs sprinkled on.
Not Worth a Fork
Here’s to these online reviews.
I understand a place can have a bad day or do some dishes better than others but there is no way that this place should have the FORKING reviews I read and I know for a fact that this isn’t the only example of this sort of thing.
I just had another exsperience reading really great reviews for a little fast/casual Hawaiian Style Eatery in Phoenix.

Honest to GOD the food we tried was mostly inedible. Most of the food seemed old and like BAD leftovers I do note Leftovers can be good but what I got here seemed pasted it’s prime. The fried Foods squirted out cold not good tasting oil. The house made potato salad tasted awful but the macaroni salad tasted even worst. I think it was really old because the mayo in it sort of broke down to oil and paste. Neither the Potato Salad or the Macaroni Salad seemed to have even just salt or pepper in them and were overly bland. A few things were edible but were just OK. I was starving so I ate some.
I ate about 1/3 of meal
This food was not 4.5 stars.
