Sunday, May 28, 2017 - Approximately 9:30am. We are coming down the West Virginia turnpike, leaving from Chillocothe, Oh this morning. We left early and hadn't had any breakfast. We wanted to clear the turnpike first.
We happened upon Biscuit World in Dunbar. Sometimes, these little hole in the wall places need to be avoided for a very good reason.
First off the business is split in two, sharing a building between them. One side is Biscuit World, the other side is Gino's Pizza. Biscuit World is for breakfast and Gino's is for lunch and dinner. You can enter from two sides, either directly into Biscuit World or through the door to Gino's. You have a shared dinning room.
We went up to the counter and looked over the menu. There were plenty of things to choose from, but that doesn't mean they're any good. I went with an old favorite "Biscuits and Gravy" with a side of hash browns. I brought my own water. My husband got the "Super Breakfast" which consisted of two eggs, one sausage patty, home fries, one biscuit, a side of gravy and some baked spiced apples (out of a can). He also got a RON which was a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit and a medium coffee.
Okay, first things first.
My side order of hash browns was in fact one hash brown patty. Stale. They asked my husband how he wanted his eggs for his super breakfast. He said "Sunny side up", they said NO - that's a health code violation. I could hardly believe what I was hearing. Health code violation? How does that work? The waitress wasn't capable of explaining it. She stated that they could serve them over easy. He fussed at her about that and took the over easy eggs. The coffee was in a small cup, but they called it medium. The home fries were dry and barely even warm, the apples were good. The eggs were okay, the sausage was okay. The biscuit was dry and hard to chew. The inside of the biscuit was okay. The biscuits and gravy were edible and that's about it.
Now, for the dining room.
The tables and seats were filthy. We had to wipe down the table and seats before we could sit down. My seat had what looked like syrup on it. The table was completely filthy and had not been touched.
While we were doing their work for them, the waitress came over with our food and tried putting it down on the table while we are cleaning it. Did she offer to help? NO. Did she apologize? NO. She just wanted to dump off the food. And when we sat down and looked at what she brought she had forgotten the RON. My husband had to go back and ask for it at the counter.
The other customers.
There was a table with an adult and a kid. The kid was crawling all over the place and banging on the table with the silverware. Very annoying. Then a family comes in, a man and woman and 3 more kids. At first they sit in the middle of the dining room and then they move to the booth right behind us. The woman had a deep bronchial cough and was coughing perpetually. The kids were crawling all over the adults and the table and booth and no one did anything about it. I figured they would be in our booth before long.
We ate quickly and left. It was a miserable. miserable breakfast. I won't ever EVER eat there again - even if the food were FREE, I would reject it.
For this miserable experience, it cost us $16.96 out the door.
Food cost breakdown -
Biscuits & Gravy - $2.89
Super Breakfast - $6.49
Ron - $3.49
Side order of Hash Browns - $1.59
Medium Coffee - $1.39
What an unfortunate waste of time, money and effort.
