Bad Owner?

Hmmm....your story is strange considering the owner is a woman.

Bad Owner

The owner of the Blue Tomato also opened another restaurant The Blue Banana. My family went to eat there and had a horrible experience. It took forever to order our drinks and even longer to order food. After ordering it took us almost 15 minutes to get drinks, even with their being only one other couple there. We finally got our drinks and started waiting for our food. After an hour and 20 minutes, my daughter started coughing and need something to drink. All of us were out of drinks and hadn't seen the waitress in almost 40 minutes. I went up to the owner and said "I need a glass of water quickly. My daughter is coughing and needs something to drink."

He brought us a cup of water, but then proceeded to yell at us saying "I don't need your business. I'm the owner of this establishment and you will not talk to me like that." (this is the very edited version of his words). Hearing this, with my 7 year old daughter and 10 year old son, we immediately left.

If the owner of these establishments thinks he is too good for customers, then maybe we should treat him accordingly and not bring our business to his place.

Italian, Mexican, American

The saying, "jack of all trades, master of none" often applies to restaurants as much as anything. Generally if you try to do too many things, they all end up mediocre at best. The Blue Tomato does not comply. I'm not saying that they do everything perfectly, but in each cuisine they offer they have at least one item that that is far from mediocre.
Of particular interest are the pizzas, lasagna, enchiladas, pulled pork sandwich, and my personal favorites, the hamburgers and the chimichangas. You've got to try the salsa and the guacamole.
