I recently had the misfortune of trying the worst plate I’ve had to date; and I’m not being hyperbolic. With the amount of garbage plates that I’ve eaten, I’d thought that nothing would be worse than Henrietta Hots. I was wrong. I would now like to introduce to you my loyal readership, the plate from 585 Rockin’ Burger Bar:
Please take a look at that photo and let me know if you notice anything out of the ordinary. I only eat plates once a month. I get excited at the thought of eating my plate. Can you imagine my disappointment after receiving a plate lacking a key ingredient? I can tell you it was immense. The “Rockin’ 585 Plate” will cost you $14.03. Let’s break it down:
HEALTH INSPECTION NOTES:
After review, I can confirm that they are following the sanitary guidelines. I would eat here again… provided they didn’t screw up my order.
Meat (Cheeseburgers): 5
The burger here was good and I love the idea of onion rings instead of diced raw onion. It’s disappointing that I only got one burger instead of the two that typically come with a plate.
Meat Sauce: 0
I’ve had bad meat sauce, I’ve had great meat sauce, but never in my life have I received a plate without meat sauce. I didn’t order the plate without meat sauce; the chef simply forgot it. I didn’t realize it until I had driven away and was on my way back home. This is a major oversight and caused the rest of the plate to be disproportional.
Potato Side (Fries): 4
The fries were also rather enjoyable although they gave me too many of them.
Mac Salad: 3
The mac salad was a rather mediocre affair.
I did not receive bread with my order.
Portion Control/Composition: 1
So the obvious thing here is that they forgot the meat sauce. It’s an odd experience to eat mac salad, french fries, and a cheeseburger with no meat sauce. On account of the aforementioned lack of meat sauce the proportions were a bit out of whack. There were too many fries and not enough mac salad. I’d like to return to do another review with meat sauce to get the full experience. I noticed that they use thousand island dressing instead of mustard which is interesting as well. I can’t help but feel like in writing this that they gave me the wrong order. I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say that’s what happened. But that begs another question: what sort of person is ordering plates without meat sauce?
