Not So Ghetto Jack in the Box?

So now my beloved ghetto jack in the box, of which many noggin posts have been written has been totally remodeled. I posted before when they did a slight cleanup but this is like a total update. The parking lot was full, there was a line of well-to-do lunch break goers, and I did notice the hint of any illicit substance in the air fouling the aroma of deep fried tacos, seasoned curly and burgers being made after they were ordered. Not one scumbag asking for change next to the register. Not one argument between the staff and an unruly, ignorant customer. New chairs, tables and an actual counter where there used to be bullet proof glass.

They've really classed up the joint. It's great for business and for the Jumbo Jack enthusiasts of the neighborhood but it makes for boring stories not worth telling. Sorry noggin readers. I'm afraid the mountain spring of awesome ghetto jitb stories has run dry.

Cha Cha Cha Reservation Fail

So like i love this place but tonight they are kind of pissing me off. We got a reservation for 11 people. As we sit we mention that were still waiting for a few of the eleven people in our party, the waitress says... not the hostess, not the person at the front who greeted us, not the person on the phone who we the made the reservation with and called 3 times, once to make the original reservation, again to add 2 extra people and again to say were running late, and at this point still there was no hesitation or indication of any problems with our reservation, but as I was saying, the waitress tells us "they told you that we have a large party of 30 coming in an hour and a half right? So you'll need to be done by then" -What the fuck is that shit? 

We wrangled 11 heads and dragged them out here from the 925 for this place we'd been talking up and now we look like assholes. You had 3 opportunities to tell us this information BEFORE we drove across the bay, and 2 more once we were in the building and after most of us are here the waitress drops the oh yea you have 90 minutes to order, and eat then GTFO bomb on us. 

Also, no separate checks, and since you're getting 18% tip automatically because we had 'more than 8', don't try and earn it. Fuck you. The speaker blasting Latin bass in our ear in the loft is awesome too. It's even better when you cram 11 adults into a table for 7. Like I said, I love this place but maybe never make reservations or sit in the loft again. Shit its after 9, let's see how they kick us out.
