Absolutely not!
The steaks are smaller and smaller.

Two weeks ago I watched a child of about 10 years of age scrape some food from his plate back into a serving dish.

How much red meat do you need at one feeding? Hit the salad bar to finish filling up your plate.

There's nothing wrong with red meat. Of course the FDA disagrees, but it's a corrupt organization. Eat all the meat you want. Stay away from bread, pasta, rice, etc. Eat less carbs.

Say, that's a great idea! Most could enjoy faking it as a vegeetarian while they scarf up at the salad bar!

I need the message to go to the Ceo of Ryans.
My fanily and I went to yhe Ryans in Tupelo, Ms. Sat at 11:40 am for lunch. I was totally shocked to have to dig through a stack of plates and not find a clean one to eat from. I finally took a plate to the manager and showed it fo her. It had what appeared to be a fourth cup of food on it unwashed. She apologized and had all tge plates picked up and rewashed. In the meantime my husband was going through his seventh fork to find a clean one. So I took one of those forks back over fo the same manager and showed it to her. Her response was, do you want your mony back so you can leave. Like what kind of redponse is that to give a customer? I told her I would love a clean fork so I can eat. Which after all the uncleaness I ate but could not enjoy my meal for thinking of tge nastiness and rude attitude. This meal cost us $35 out of our stressed funds as it was. I'm not sure if I should go back in there again because I will have to take pictures and post them on my facebook page if I see that volume of filth again not to mention call the health dept. I have eaten at your restaurant s in Tupelo, Columbus, many times over the past years and have experienced this before at Columbus but after complaining to that manager never saw it again there.
Very disappointed.

I have seen some real improvement at the Ryan's in Alexandria, Louisiana.
The management has improved the cleanliless of the restaurant.
And the staff has really improved.

Unfortunately most of the problem seems to come from the customers.
I have seen families leaving their tables looking like 'landfills".
Food and napkins thrown on the floor, food off the plates all over the tables.
I have seen swine with better manners!

The service was horrible the server didn't greet herself had all our drinks wrong had to ask for refills. The food looked like been sitting there for hours. It was just horrible all the way around Ryan's use be our favorite but we will never return.

I eat at Ryan's in Alexandria at lunch time during the work week about once a month.
Not too bad.
Mainly working people there.
Not many kids making a mess of the place.
Ryan's would be a decent place if the customers didn't eat like swine.

By the way, I will never go back to Golden Corral in Alexandria again.
Lousy food, filthy place.

Why would someone want to scoop their own food with a ladle that 200 people with filthy hands just handled.
Next time you're at a buffet watch what hand folks scoop their food with. Then watch how they'll use that same contaminated hand to hold cookies or biscuits they're eating.
Even the pizza buffets use the same technique. Might as well reach over to the next table and borrow somebody's fork.
I ain't a germophobe, but suggest you look at who's preparing your hamburger at the fast food place. Are they wearing gloves or not?
Then too there are the cashiers who lick their thumb to separate the dollars they give you in change at the register.
Gross!
There should be hand sanitizers available at every counter with mandatory use before handling utensils.
