That must be the restaurant Mr. Creosote ate at. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxRnenQYG7I
Or “All we hope you can eat!”
All-you-can-eat is a way to make your customers pigs.
“All you can get down without pukin’.”
K street in DC?
The company I was working for last year treated all of the employees to lunch at a Chinese buffet during the Christmas season. You know you are at a bad buffet when not only do you not go back for a second plate but you don’t even finish the first. Things must have been tough because two days later we were told that the company had lost its contract and everyone was being laid off. Quite the Merry Christmas!
Good to see truth in advertising.
All You Can Stomach
… plus one little mint.
I thought of the Roz’s Roost diner in “Shoe.”
Usually when a conventional restaurant suddenly starts to serve as a buffet, it’s a sign that the end of the restaurant as a business is near.
Establishment lacking a name on a window or the entrance overhead. Appropriate suggestions?……..
@DOT-THE-I….. Pedant’s Patisserie…or…in honour of that wonderful segment in the Carol Burnet Show “As the Stomach Churns”
I used to know 2 brothers – they were large, but not fat, gentlemen – whose hobby was going to all-you-can-eat places & eating until they were asked to leave……
We would call that the local choke and puke.
Went to a luau Tuesday. Wasn’t anything worth going back for seconds.
This, and other incidents,inspired Marge to write her best selling book “Living With A Literalist” !
I went through that hollow leg phase as a teenager. Later I was still trying to take all-you-can-eat restaurants for all that I could, and paying the price. What a drag it is to be old.
I just ate at a local Time Machine restaurant. After the first course, I went back four seconds.
That board should be outside every Cheap Chinese Buffet – dedicated to making the lower 99% #fattereveryday
Can’t remember which comedian said it:
“Went to the casino last week and lost $4,000
but I made up for it at the buffet.”
And then there’s the Instagram buffet: All You Can Take A Picture Of.
I ounce saw a sign in a restaurant that said: Eat here – Diet Home
Dude sounds burnt out. Take a break, maybe some herbal tea…Go to your happy place, Take a deep breath and sigh….Force yourself to smile, just to see if the muscles still work. You’ll be surprised how good it feels…
All you can eat, for a $1.99, but one dollar’s worth was all I can stand. Sometimes, sometimes bad is bad.
