Hmm, when I saw it was an assisted living facility I thought it may be the one my wife was kept prisoner in. Several things happened but when she asked for some ice water and after 20 minutes it did not show I found an ice machine. NO scoop in it and I saw other things. Had I thought I would have called my neighbor, a licensed inspector to have her take a look and close them down. Should have done it.


T-Bone....charges $4 more for empty plate if you share a meal, can't cook a steak unless done medium well. $$$ *


The slope kitchen. Oink, oink [scared]
