Respond to Review of The Remedy Diner
Review: so my gf & i are both vegan. the problem for most vegan eateries is that we cook at home, so they need to be pretty awesome to standout. we've been to the remedy diner twice. the first time -- february of 2012 -- was outstanding. we had fake philly steaks & vegan carolina BBQ. i'm not a BBQ fan, but for what it was, this one was just fine. but the philly? holy crap, man, it was great. we were there again this past weekend -- april 2012 -- and everything pretty much sucked. the bread was stale; they were out of the vegan mayo; didn't have any vegan gravy for the vegan, "countrified" steak, and we got about 12 fries for the $2.50 we paid for fries. we were very clear about being vegan, but our server brought us a roast beef w/ bacon as a "vegan philly" and a dessert topped with real whipped cream after we forced the other stuff down. this was all a far cry from february, when the food was SO good that we were looking forward to our next visit to raleigh... and this was just a total disappointment after we brought our whole family -- grandparents and all -- to here for dinner. come on, remedy.
