I used to go the Grand Saloon every now and then when in the mood for a good burger & fries, a pitcher of beer, a convivial atmosphere, a game on their TVs, and usually cute and friendly waitresses/hostesses. The food is tremendously greasy... I almost always get bloated and heartburn after I eat there, and one time me and my friend had to sit in the car for 45 minutes just to ""recover"" after a meal... NO JOKE. But I was willing to endure some digestion issues once in awhile, as the food, while not great, is not bad for burger fare. Far from the best, but not bad. However, last time I went there, it was Karaoke night on Friday. It looked like they got rid of most of their TVs. There seemed to be a bunch of regulars there, kinda provincial neighborhood types who were throwing their own party. Unlike the crowds I'd seen on previous visits... which would be a mix of all types and ages. But worst of all was the service. Never had a major problem with service before. But this waitress didn't listen carefully to the order and brought us the wrong beer, made us wait for the check, then made us wait OVER AN HOUR for our change... while she changed her clothes and stalled, obviously hoping we'd leave her the change as tip... and then we we got it, she had already taken the tip! And then she sat at the bar, drinking, while our plates remained on the table... and only when we got up to leave did she start taking the plates! NO JOKE. Horrible service. I was embarassed I took my friends there. Oh, btw, got very bloated and heartburn again as usual, and so did my friends (one of whom only ordered a chicken salad!) Won't be coming back anytime soon, if ever.
Pros: Used to have friendly service, tasty but greasy food
Cons: HORRIBLE service now; if they went out of business, the oil business would go bankrupt
