So I got bitched at by the waitress because we didn't tip her enough for the bill. So she won't serve us next month unless we do individual checks. Sorry but I wasn't about to pay 60 for my 2 drinks dinner and half a pitcher.

That sucks. I don't know what to say other than I'm usually one of the ones left paying the tab and we are usually short as well. I can't believe I"m saying this but maybe it's time to start the whole "let's try other places" thing again?

Honestly if it was me the first thing I would have done when she opened her mouth to complain to a customer is call the manager over. She won't last long by "bitching" at the customers. Tyler can you call them today and tell them what happened?

PS, I am pretty sure Dave knows what's up.

It is unfortunate as a group we are coming up short. When it is time to roll, if in doubt on how much to chip in, error high, don't be short. That is bush league.

Actually I always tipped really well. Over 20% regardless of service. Its all the cheap fucks that leave early and don't leave enough $$ that actually ruin things for the rest of us.

The only bad service I got was because Jonesy was being a dickhead as usual and paying Shelby $20 to ignore my orders.

But, you cheap fuck/shitty tipper/eat and run asshats keep having a laugh. I am glad you think its funny to watch a fellow rover owner going hungry, dying of thirst and suffering alcohol withdrawal while the rest of you pretend everything is ok. Then you skip out on the tip.

So, go fuck yourself Briggs. And all the rest of you too who leave without paying your own way. Grow the fuck up, own your bullshit, or go ruin someone else's happy hour. If you need an explanation of how to leave a proper tip, I will gladly explain it to you outside in the parking lot so I don't have to embarrass you in front of the group to teach you 3rd grade math.

Honestly I don't care enough to call the place and talk to Carlos. If she doesn't want to serve us next time I don't care. I do think it's easier to just do separate checks and if you want to get a pitcher to split cool.

I don't receive shitty service which is the point I'm trying to make. It's just a stupid lame running (non)joke that keeps getting told over and over by the same dim-witted knucks who then leave early without paying their own way.

You didn't pay because you were our guest. So we will continue to reject your offer of payment. Besides, the CaliPeso is not accepted in the other 49 states.

I don't think the server is asking for tip on top of "bad service". How did we get to this conclusion?

I read Tyler's post to mean:
1. We couldn't pay the bill (not the tip, the bill!)
2. She said she won't serve us unless we have separate checks, so that we are forced to pay the bill.

The waitress is trying to solve our problem because we seem to be incapable of solving it ourselves.

Seems fair.

I'm all for trying new places, but we're just going to cart the same problem to another location.

Well, I put in $20 for 2.5 glasses of beer and a small order of onion rings.

here's a review of kilroy's from their FB page

"Came here yesterday with my husband after work...it is a bar, so I didn't expect the food to be great. I ordered a fish sandwich with Cajun fries, to my surprise it was pretty good. After eating half of the sandwich, I found a long blonde hair on my plate. I tried to pull it off which ended up being a struggle, because the fries were burying it. I called our waitress over. She was kind, apologized, and offered to take the plate away. When I went to pick the plate up, we then found a very short, curly black hair on the plate. The people who handle the food and dishes-INCLUDING the servers should have to have their hair up in the state of Virginia according to serv-safe. Here, the cleanliness of the food doesn't seem to be the main concern-it seems to be the waitresses sexualizing themselves to the middle-aged white men. Hence, every waitress having their hair down past their shoulders while handling food. Not to mention that it was twenty degrees yesterday and two of the waitresses were wearing shorts. I will never go here again."

Nuff said

I think it's pretty clear that DB hates Kilroy's. First it was the cigarette smoke, now it's the Yelp reviews

So what do you suggest, Dave?

Nonsense. Why do you think that? I just though the line about the waitress sexualizing themselves in front of middle aged men was pretty funny. Clearly the reviewer was there the same night as us.

I suggest everybody pay for what they consume. I've been doing separate checks @ HH since the 3rd time Tlyer and I got stuck with the tab @ Jay's.

Yeah Kilroy's sucks. But I don't think we are going to get much better somewhere else.
