Wow... just... wow. I absolutely cannot believe the absolute CHINTZINESS of the restaurant I went to last night. Sunset Grillle, Durham NC - http://www.sunsetgrilledurham.com/ - - not only was the food mediocre at best - the "cheeeeesy fries" barely had any cheese on them, the nachos came out all wrong, the burgers were... eh... at best...and the drink pours were not exactly generous - as in, pay $2 more at the martini bar, get 2x the martini). (Is there a synonym for that word? I feel so weird using it now b/c of the name thing) Anyway, I could have written off many of these things, purely based on proximity - it's a bar. I can walk to it. 'nuf said. Untill.... I got my bill. On said bill, it turns out they charged me $0.75 for BARBEQUE SAUCE on my burger. I mean, jeeez... that's just ridiculous (I wouldn't have minded had they MENTIONED that there was an extra charge, so I knew before hand. However, this "surprise" charge, while it's not like I couldn't afford it, just pissed me off). So, in a very untypical move for me, I complained to the waiter. He said it was policy, and I said fine, b/c it really wasn't the poor guy's fault. Meanwhile, I'm still miffed. So I call the owner this morning - and he DOESN"T APOLOGIZE. Even after I point out that there was no note on the menu stating barbeque sauce was extra, and that he was very specifically driving away a potential regular customer. And all her friends. idiot. Long story short, don't go there....

And I STILL haven't gotten decent cheese fries. Just because some people can't suck it up and deal once in a while, so I never get to go Linda's....

that sucks. is it a new-ish restaurant? if so, you might want to give it 3 months and try again. They'll probably either be better, or gone.

don't know what to tell you about the bbq sauce, though... thats an exhorbitant price for what was proably, at most 5 cents worth of sauce. :/
