Lou’s Filling Station

Saturday 18 November, 2017

Dump extraordinaire so I checked in to this eclectic place with a smile on my face. The owner has taken an old gas station and converted it into a watering hole with finger food. What a great idea. Sadly, whoever envisioned this dive joint has never cleaned anything in their life. This grimy filthy place is an embarrassment. Our first thought was where in the world is the health department? We should have left at this point but I had a slight glimmer of hope the food and service could carry the day. It certainly would not be the first time.

I shrugged my shoulders and said to my friend, "how much worse could it get?" Well, the cook came out of the kitchen with a cigarette wedged between his forefinger and his second finger with two plates of food akimbo across his arms. I shook my head in disbelief and we left. This place may not be open much longer but I think I know why. This is horrid
