Yea, well. Probably as a suprise to no one I am out. My parents have deemed another activity more importent than hanging out with friends. So I will catch it next week. I think my dad my come along next week also. Have a good time.

They have a reservation for about 25 under "Cobra Club" at 7-7:15, and will guarantee seating within 30 minutes of the first person arriving. Manager = Mindy.

BEFORE I get flamed no one suggested any other place and no one said "no" to Pappasitos..... :(

Sorry for the wait and everything. Rachel did as much as she could putting down reservations and everything. I'm sure the kitchen, wait staff, and everyone in the restaurant wasn't prepared for the crowd...not just us but everyone. I'll remember this for next year...we'll do fast food. :cool:

Thanks to everyone who came out and waited with us.... I think with any other crowd I would have had a lousy time. ;) Good to see everyone again. :thumbsup:

It's all your fault Mike... kidding...

That was the worst dining experiance I have ever had. Pappasitos did everything wrong, lying, charging for large party gratuity when we were not seated together & only 1 waiter for that room. We should have walked.
Thanks Rachael for the effort.

It was no ones fault on our end. That place was CRAZY packed. They benefitted from the fact that I had to park like half a mile away so it was that much harder to just leave and walk to the car....

I would also like to thank Rachel for doing what she could to get us seated. It was a failure on the part of their management, not just just with seating us, but also not getting another waiter in there for us to help like Darrell said. But to the credit of the waiter, he was very very nice, especially with an angry group.

Live and learn, bad dinning experience aside, it was great to see everyone out before next year :thumbsup:

One way to look at it Rach. we had fun but had to get home to depart with my sweet heart of a car. Sorry for leaving early, but we had fun talking and drinking with everyone.

mine was too...i couldn't stand it anymore so jennifer and i went to Friday's...right by the Starbucks. there was hardly anyone there (8:00pm).

this may be a place to think about in the future b/c the parking is great and it was not crowded at all. and we can walk to Starbucks when we are finished.

We did eat there once...as I recall it was "quick to sit" and on time. And good. Thanks for making a positive suggestion, Scott. :thumbsup: Let's try it in the new year.

It was good to see everyone last night before the new year. I was not a happy camper how the manager treated us. Im over it today. I would like to state that I firmly believe the manager was the one at fault and I am sorry that I took it out on the waiter. She just abandoned them and left with out even following up to see what she could do to help. Long story short, when you have the business they do you dont have to worry about terrible service. I want go back there again. :)

I'll go back.... the waiter was very apologetic to us when everyone left and felt really bad but we assured him it wasn't his fault. We even left through the fire exit so that we wouldn't go off on someone by going through the front. I hope that the letter gets written, sent to the right people and someone's ass gets chewed for how a big group with a "guaranteed" time had to wait 2 hours to be seated. :(

Sounds like you guys had an adventure. It turns out the reason my parents freaked out when I said I was going to the mustang meet is because they had a suprise going away party planned for me. I will be out next tuesday to see everyone. Have a great new year and stuff.

i was there at 9:00 to 9:45 and no one was there so i though that no one was comming. Then chuck called me and said that every one got there late. But by then i had already left. and was about 20 min away. Sorry mike next week.
