I ordered to go around 7:15pm and ordered the prime rib special with mashed potatoes, seasonal veggies and vegetable soup. The prime rib was ordered as medium rare and when I opened the container the prime rib was well done and not juicy at all. Too tough for me to eat and vegetable soup was a few pieces of beef and mostly onions 

Business response:

Hello Richelle, Thank you for the feedback. I will suggest my staff not sell Steaks To-Go. This never works out, because it continues to cook in the To-Go container. Please come and join us at the Diner sometime. It will be a juicier experience. Thank you.
