When I was in college, it was only about an hour and a half from home.
Parents would come visit every now and then, and of course we'd always
go out to eat, since I was living in the dorms.
And, of course, I'd take them to local favorite restaurants of mine.

Every single time I took my parents, either the food, service or other customers
sucked. EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!! We finally just started going to the local
Western Sizzlin' steak house.... it became a running joke with my Dad.

Every time my parents would visit, we would end up standing in a line for hours waiting for a table. We finally just started going to the Asian Buffet and were happy with that. We always knew what to expect, including the actions of the staff.
