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.

A) I wasn't saying you didn't tip, i was saying you constantly receive shitty service. Point being to have a server who feels entitled to XYZ% as a tip when shitty service is given isnt cool.

2) I tried to pay, as was rejected. Send me you paypal.

IV) Are you talking new math, or common core?

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.

Those who paid with a card.....check your charges. My amex just flagged a second charge for the same amount. Seems she is trying to get it back some how....and I am calling the joint now....

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.

Plunging necklines and hot pants might be 'sexualizing' but long hair? And whats the big deal, it comes with floss.

But seriously, that is pretty messed up if people aren't paying.

My point was that I got yelled at by a server for the first time ever. We covered the bill but she didn't get a tip other than what I paid on my card. She got a 30% tip on a little over $40. I don't really care if the wait staff a killjoys is mad. I will check my card when I get home and dispute any added charges.

Did the people that put money down for their share not account for tax? That always seems to be the case in my experience with splitting a check.

I'm surprised they don't slap an 18% gratuity on the bill for parties of 8 or more like most places so.

I was there with Betty, thus I ran and covered my own tab for the same reason, I gladly share with all of you but if I have a guest or companion, I run separate tab.

That sucks. I haven't had that happen at Kilroy's before, but I'll have to watch out. I try to tip 20% regardless of service.


As for stiffing the waitress, it sounds like separate checks may be the way to go. However, paying more than $40 bucks for a few beers and a burger is what I'd expect at the Palm or Bourbon Steak, not Kilroy's, am I wrong in thinking this?


After reading that Yelp review, I'm wondering if the staff at Kilroy's is like the staff in the movie 'Waiting...' Pictures & Photos from Waiting... (2005) - IMDb but I guess this could be true of any bar & grill. I will say, I haven't noticed hair in my food at Kilroy's before, but I'm sure going to start checking.


Tyler - Thanks for bearing the wrath of our entitled waitress.
