Bagel World at Victoria Square - Merritt Island - 1 Star
"But implicit in the history of the First Amendment is the rejection of obscenity as utterly without redeeming social importance."-- Brennan
Swill: kitchen refuse and scraps of waste food mixed with water for feeding to pigs.
This is the Big Boy Dining Out's first "Swill Alert."
From now on, when I am served food not suitable for human consumption I will place a Swill Alert on the website as well as on Facebook, Google, and Yelp. It is very rare I find food completely inedible; however, Bagel World at Victoria Square is easily the grossest food I have ever seen. At least at Rooney's, the food looked good enough to try.
When you enter this bagel shop, the first thing that hits you is a horrid stench that slaps you in the face. A kid came over to help and I asked what the fetid stench was. He replied that it was peanut oil, which I was not aware has the scent of raw sewage, but apparently to this disinterested punk it does - or at least that's what he was told and he's sticking to the story.
For my meal, I ordered a tuna melt with a side of macaroni salad. The macaroni salad smelled like the mayo had gone bad so I did not try it. I opened the bread to look at the tuna and you can clearly see in the photo the tuna is spoiled and boy, did it smell like it. I couldn't even eat any of the meal I ordered due to its rottenness.
I actually tried contacting the owner but apparently he is as involved in social media as he is in this restaurant. I even tried locating his home to no avail. I am not sure how the health department has not shut them down by now. This is easily the worst food establishment I have ever been in my whole life, much less my reviewing career.
The verdict is clear: Big Boy says stay away. Far, far, far, far, away!!!
