My family and I went to Mammatown for dinner on Friday night, as we were eating our dinner a bug started walking on my daughter's plate. I called over the waitress and she killed the bug with a napkin and took it to the manager, he came over and offered a 10% discount for our meal. I asked to give a 50% discount he refused to do so, when I went to the cashier's desk the cashier accused me of bringing the bug in and said I was the one that was wrong and that you know God is watching me so I should do what was right. I did become angry with her for trying to play mind games in that manner and she was rude. I will never go there again, and will do by best to let others know that MAMMATOWN is not a clean establishment. Anyone that reads this comment, be aware you my find bugs in your food, you may be accused of bring bugs to the table.

I hope you are going to make a call to the Health Department about them.

My family has eaten there as well, two times. The first time there were signs up that said the food is replaced regularly. While we were eating food was replaced (the place was busy) and everything seemed fresh. We left happy. The next time we went, totally different. It was not as busy. We never saw them bring any food out the whole time we were there and there were no signs about replacing food. All the food out there was very old. We left vowing to never return. That night we all got sick. My 5 year old got his first experience throwing up. No doubt we will never go there again.

I would definitely call the Health Department, or whoever takes care of restaurant inspections.

I feel like if you found a bug in your food or on your table at all, the manager should have comped your entire meal and not ask you to pay anything. That's just good customer service. Even though you probably won't eat there again, a free meal could have definitely lessened the chances of you bad-mouthing the place as badly.

I don't blame you one bit for telling of your experience though; that's definitely something that people need to be aware of. I sure don't want to eat anywhere where bugs are randomly crawling through your food or on your table while eating. I understand that most all restaurants have some bugs here and there, but it's kind of one of those "out of sight, out of mind" things. It's totally different when you're enjoying your meal and then BAM, there's a bug wandering around your food.
