When was the last time you cleaned your fridge?

My housekeeper cleans my fridge and oven once a month.....scours every nook and cranny, and disposes of any old stuff in the fridge,...a good housekeeper saves a lot of TIME and trouble, especially if one works for a living,...who really want's to spend their VALUED SPARE time cleaning a house/apartment ???

Rob's Bistro, Madison

VALUE is the individual customers interpretation, objectively............the owner of a restaurant has a right to a good profit on his/hers investment,.
but the customer has a right to a "profit" also, and that "profit" is value and satisfaction....many, too many customers don't see that their entitled to a "profit" also, and remember, if your not satisfied, the owner has made a PROFIT on your meal, and YOU HAVEN'T !!! .......quantified !

Steak-tip grinder

From Country Cooking....super deelicious and better than Pats or Geno's in Philly...buy and slice very thin skirt steak, chop into small pieces, flash fry in veggie oil, till pink is gone, immediately add S&P, onion powder, grated parmesan cheese, layers of sliced american cheese, and stir into beef once cheese begins to melt over a low flame....add to a toasted roll of your choice....great !!! the parmesan augments the flavor of mild american cheese...everything, about a half hour....you'll be hooked..........

ANOTHER small portion, big prices restaurant out of business......won't they EVER learn ??,...the public wants VALUE for their hard earned $$$ !!....Altho' you can't compare Rob's with Harolds Deli in Raritan, Harolds is always packed....why ?...hugh portions, huge prices !!...always a doggy bag...two meals for the price of ONE !!.....customers want VALUE !!!...customers won't walk up to the owner/chef and complain about value, they just don't return !!

Roots in Morristown and the instructions from the waiter

Agreed......however, if it's Arthur's, Alexis or any steakhouse, if it's $25.00 or $50.00, it's going back if it's not done per my request,......the restaurant has guidelines it runs by,....so do I,.....the restaurant has a right to make a good profit,....but IMO, so does the customer,.....and the customers "profit" is two fold,... value an satisfaction....if the customer does not receive both, he/she lost "profit" while the restaurant made a profit on the meal you were dissatisfied with........

SURE HY'S cheesecake was great, but a good match to Hy's can now be found at the new Manny's Diner/Restaurant in Clark....great creamy, light (not dense) beautiful cheesecake........the Baker must be a master !!!

Hy's cheesecake

Hy had a great cheesecake but let's not forget their are some very good ones now, namely the new Manny's diner/restaurant in Clark, the Stirling diner in Stirling, and some others I can't recall.....at one time diners were rated on their coffee and burgers,....now it's cheesecake

Doughnuts

Where can I buy, ol' fashion doughnuts WITH ol' fashioned TASTE
in the Union, Middlesex, Morris county area ??...it seems they have taken taste out of those delicacies....like supermarket donuts.....I recall a man in a converted bus that made the greatest near Kean Univ, in Union years ago.

Trader Joes... Please, just ring up my groceries.

If the checkout person is TOO chatty, I tell the store manager that not eveyone who checks out is in a chatty mood, in fact something in their personal lives put them in a non talkative mood.....I recently told a Cosco manager that a refund clerk made the comment....."We never had a problem with this before !!"....I told the Mgr, that the implication was I was lying....result....she'll never do it again.

Charlie Brown's... Wins "Nickel & Dime Award"

AS LONG as they have it listed with the price on the menu
...it must be paid....you can complain about "horseradish" and "horseradish sauce" however, if it's listed...pay it
restaurants are ALWAYS trying to "get over" on a customer, it's the customer who has to protect their interests at all times...........
