Breakfast was prepared perfectly. Great, old fashion decor. It had been a while since we ate here. Server was very helpful suggesting substitutions to get the most food for our retired bucks. Will return and highly recommend for a good meal at a family restaurant.

We would never hire someone we didn't believe was going to be a good fit. I am not certain you have your facts correct.
