Wendy’s On Russellville Road Bowling Green

Damien Knight

I go to the local Wendy’s about once every other week. Our Wendy’s is at 2648 Russellville Rd, Bowling Green, KY 42101. Tonight, 12/22/2018,  at around 7:30 pm, I went to that same Wendy’s and my normal seating spot was a filthy mess. We got our food fast enough, but the lobby was horrid looking. Ok it’s a fast food place not to complain worthy, go ask for a person to wipe a table.

I head to the table and the manager Shannon, a tall blonde woman, comes out and wipes our table and does “curtesy swipes” of a few other tables. She doesn’t sweep the mess of fries from the floor or really clean anything well except the table we sat at. She goes back and next I know I hear my friend, who is on crutches for a broken heel, yell out: “Take a picture of this!”

I turn and there is my friend on the ground and French fry is crushed beside him. I pull my camera to take the picture but manager Shannon was quick to grab it.

“Take a picture of what?” She says, “It’s just a French fry.”

My friend was struggling to get up, and the manager walks away from him without asking if he was all right or make any accommodation or apology. He get’s angry and retorts, “Not even gonna ask if I am ok? This kind of thing is a great way to get a lawsuit. Should clean this place up!”

She then feigns concern “Are you all right?”

“No!” He snaps, “I am not.”

I muttered that he would be fine as I was helping him. I helped him off the ground and took pictures of the mess. After she made him file an “Incident Report” where she asked if he knew the owner of the Wendy’s, and his address and phone number. Then she made him give a written statement and said she took “written statements” from others in the restaurant. By the way at the time of incident there were 2 other families, and neither one did I see give such statements. In fact I never saw her talk to them.

Shannon told him that Wendy’s couldn’t be responsible for any injury due to tripping on a fry. She wasn’t the least bit polite or apologetic about what happened. Her apologies were cold and mechanic “Of course we don’t want anyone getting hurt but we are not responsible for fries on the ground.” I took pictures of the conditions. I took these pictures after she “Cleaned” if that tells you anything about the state of it prior. Do not go to this Wendy’s when Shannon is working it is obvious that when she’s there the store is ran at a sub-par level.

Chart House Waikiki Review

By Aaron Knapp

 

Is there a better way to spend time than to be near the harbor? You have the smell of the ocean, the sound of gulls, and waves crashing the shoreline.  Step inside and be greeted by the sound of a live band and the wafting scent of good food?  Even if this sensory overload is not your cup of tea, the quality of the food at Chart House Waikiki should.

My associates and I had pre-reservations at the restaurant.  It is recommended to make reservations as the place swiftly gets packed making for quite the wait time. You are able to make reservations online at the Chart House Website.  We took a seat, and after reading the menu most of us ordered the evening specials. Food at the Chart House is kept in season, so your red fin tuna may be out of season, sad panda.  The evening special I received was a salad, an entree and a dessert.

 

The salad came with fresh ground pepper being served by the server.  Entrees came out with choice toppings for your potatoes.  The fish I had was moon fish, it was great, easy to cut, and tender.  The asparagus was steamed and tasted okay.  After a delicious dish of fish, I received my pineapple sherbet.  Even though the sherbet seems like a child’s dessert, I was in Hawaii and wanted the pineapple.  The sherbet was interesting, and not too shabby.  I was glad the sherbet was all I got as I was full after my entrée.  The Chart House was a good late night stop, all I can say is much like the rest of the island bring your wallet.  The Chart House is not expensive, compared to others.  I would recommend the restaurant to anyone in the area.

Restaurant Review: El Molcajete

By Damien Knight

Hello everyone, Damien here and this past Sunday I ate out at a Mexican restaurant in the small town of Russellville, Ky. Now I love good Mexican food and I am really picky about it. I entered the place after having heard rumours of its greatness.

First out was chips. Standard fare, the tortilla chips had a wonderful crunch to them, but the salsa lacked the kick I expect in a Mexican restaurant.

chips

We ate a basket and a half of chips by time the food arrived. We had ordered the burrito verde, a chicken burrito with green salsa. It came with rice and a salad. I did not care for the salad and requested an order for a side of refried beans. The burrito was average. It wasn’t overly spicy. The food overall was about a 7 out of 10.

The restaurant itself was well maintained with clean bathrooms. The service was consistent in checking on us. They made sure we had plenty chips and salsa. Over all the place had a good feel and I would likely go again. A total of 8 out of 10 is my rating. If you live in the area or just craving Mexican food El Molcajete is a good spot to eat.

Tiptastic Tuesday! Samurai: Hibachi and Sushi of Bowling Green

 

This Tiptastic Tuesday is a restaurant review for the Japanese hibachi restaurant Samurai on Scottsville Road. When we went in, we were shocked to find we were the only customers. I think this is because there are two other Japanese places named Samurai on Scottsville Rd. The one we went to was 1713 Scottsville Road, Bowling Green, KY.

2016-07-15

We were led to the grill and sat down. I ordered a coke, my son a Dr. Pepper, my daughter a sweet tea. We then looked over the menu. They had a large selection of sushi and informed us they were doing a half off on sushi. I ordered a KY Derby Roll which had crab and shrimp and a Dragon Fly Roll which had eel and shrimp. The kids ordered their kids meal, my son steak, daughter shrimp and I choose a steak and shrimp combo. The waitress took our order and then came back with our soups.

The soup was superb, a clearer soup than at Shogun’s but delicious. The waitress then brings out the sushi and my salad. The wait had not been long, but we were hungry and dived into the sushi. It excellent. The ginger dressing on the salad was just right and not a single sushi remained.

The chef came out and did the standard show. He did a good job and kept us entertained. Once the food was cooked, we dived right in. I would give the place 4 out of 5 stars. It was clean with great staff and good food. The place had an unfinished feel to it though and no other customers. If the décor was improved, perhaps it would be five stars. If you are ever in the area stop in and give them a shot.

Majestic Steakhouse Princeton Review

By Damien Knight

 

In Princeton Kentucky, there is a small local steakhouse called Majestic Steakhouse. It is a family owned and operated restaurant with a lunch buffet. I was staying in Princeton during the week of the eclipse and stopped by and give the food a try.

I took my kids to eat for the lunch buffet. The lunch was baked chicken with mashed potatoes and rolls. It was good and cooked thoroughly. The service was slow at first but attentive.


After the lunch, we grabbed dessert. This comprised cake and banana pudding. I grabbed banana pudding. It was very much a homemade style pudding heavy with bananas, wafers and whipped crème.

After eating we paid at the counter. The meal was average priced. I would recommend if you find yourself in Princeton, Kentucky to try Majestic Steakhouse. Feel free to check out their facebook page. Majestic Steakhouse
