Can I borrow some paper?

I took my children out to dinner on Saturday night after church. It was agreed upon by the three of us to go to a local sports bar and grill on 16 and John R. My daughter is now into calamari and they serve decent calamari there. We were seated quickly and the wait staff was very prompt. My son and I split an order of calamari as an appetizer, and my daughter had her own because that’s all she wanted for dinner. My son and I also each ordered a burger and waffle fries. The calamari was good, crispy outside and just the right amount of chewiness. We all agreed it was good.

When my son and I’s entrees came, they looked quite delicious. My burger was a half pounder with pepper jack cheese and jalapenos. The waffle fries were tasty and I dove into them first, saving the burger for last cuz that’s what I was really craving. Now came the moment of truth I took a big bite of my burger. Ah yes it was juicy and cooked the way I wanted with just the right amount of heat from the jalapenos and melted gooey cheese. But wait! What’s this my teeth are pulling out of the burger? It’s the paper wrapper used to separate layers of cheese in a packet!!

I didn’t need to summon the wait staff they saw the papery cheese hanging out of my mouth. My plate was quickly taken away and numerous apologies were offered to me by the wait staff and the manager who comped my meal. With much expediency, a new burger and fries soon arrived. This second burger was cooked more than I usually like but it was still good. So, as you can tell, my review is mixed. The staff acknowledged the mistake and did all they could to rectify it. Of course mistakes happen but it sure is scary when other people are preparing your food. Other than some more potential fiber in my diet, the experience was good.
