if u want people to eat at your restaurant, there are other ways to do it. #1 get air conditioning in the hot summer months. #2 serve good food, I can order from schwans from my telephone. #3 be as nice as u can to everyone you know , word of mouth travels as fast as the fastest vehicle.

Don Quixotes is a tourist trap. And not such a good one at that.

I used to eat at this place quite a bit, but I have given up on them EVER hiring any DECENT help (all I ask is for my drink to get refilled every once in a while) I have also given up on their food. It is the same crap over and over, and it is never cooked how you would like for it to be cooked, it is cooked however Tom feels like cooking it that day. Gloria (the owner) needs a serious attitude adjustment, if something is wrong with my order and I ask for it to be fixed, I dont want to be argued with about it!!

I don't know who is worse, Joey of Roscoes Restaurant, or Gloria Gushue, the food sucks at both, they treat thier help like crap and are not much better to thier customers.
I told the waitress at Don Quixotes that my food was cold and she told me, "I am so sorry for all of your personal problems". I have give this "hash house" several different chances to serve decent food but that was the last straw.
Tom cannot cook, I ordered a monte cristo, and was served a grilled ham and cheese, a tuna melt and was served cold cheese and tuna on toast, the hamburger tasted of old meat and was inedible. I tried it for dinner one night and ordered steak dianne, how someone can turn such a wonderful delicate, melt in your mouth dish served tableside into a 16 ounce T-bone with some unrecognisable sauce slopped over it is beyond me. SHAME on Gloria for trying to pass this crap off on people as "fine food". The "home made" half frozen deserts served are obviously Schwanns, and served overpriced. If I want frozen carrot cake I can call Schwanns myself and save money. You cant even get a soft drink in this dump.
Some people do not deserve to own businesses and some restaurants that misrepresent thier food and treat their customers as Don Quixotes does neet to shut their doors for good and be added to The Ghost Town list, which is another misrepresented tourist trap.
Gloria, some people have actually traveled beyond Calico Rock and have dined in Fine Restaurants, some of us actually know the difference between creme caramel and crap. Tom needs to spend more time watching the Food Chanel and less time smoking on the back stairway.

Please leave Tom alone, everybody has the right to sit on the stairway and look for a man.

It is really sad when there is a bad experience. I know that life give us choices and it is your not to go back. I know they have worked hard and would be upset knowing you felt this way

it seems to me that you have an ax to grind. It makes not difference to locations you just have a hatred for certain people that you have been quite vocal about. I pity people around you

Hey Visitor from Jersey,
We feel sorry for all of the people that Gloria has stiffed out of money and treated like crap here in Calico Rock. I hear the reason that, that
lol, "restaurant", lol is so hot is because she stiffed the air conditiong man out of his money too, not to mention venders, wait help, and prior cooks. See how many places will cash one of Gloria's checks. Not Harps.
How did Gloria's house burn down??? Truthfully?
Jersey Yankee Trash, just ask around Calico Rock with some of the common folk about Don Quixotes, you will find that we are being quite mild with our posts here.
And then take Midwest's advice and get your tired ass back to Jersey.

An Axe to Grind? Why because I can't stand employers that rip off their employees and tradesmen, because when I pay a decent price for fine food, I should get fine food and don't like to have items that I pay for misrepresented to me?
Yes I hate people that cheat and lie to other people. I hate Don Quixotes for doing this to Calico Rock and people that have worked there.
I really hate New Jersey and yankees that move into small towns and try to change them.
Yes I have an axe to grind, just need to find the right jerks head to grind it on.
The other posters here are right, GO BACK TO JERSEY.

I have worked for Mike Markgraf and he prepares lunch for all of his workers, he is an excellant cook. A man that cooks and pays his workers on time.
I hope he needs my help again soon. I would work for this guy anytime.

Lynn Ward one of the men singing there sadly died in 2010 and we all miss him, he was a great guy.
Don Quixotes died years ago, Good Bye, we hope that they never reopen. Bad food, bad service, and rip-off prices.
