And we were so craving Mexican food....
My husband and I went to the Shorty's in Bedford several months ago for the first time. We waited forever to be "noticed" by the hostess. I finally flagged down a server to ask for a manager (by this time other people had filed in and were also waiting to be noticed). Long story short, I guess several staff members called in sick and they were extremely short-staffed.
We should have left at this point (approx. 15 mins had gone by before we were even sat at a table) given that it was our first experience here and things weren't running too smoothly. But we were craving Mexican and I was willing to overlook the initial impression of the place.
It didn't get any better. Both of us were violently ill after eating there (and each of us had different dishes). It was our first--and last--time there.
