Gagging On NASTY FOOD

Mammoth Spring, AR

#1 Jun 14, 2009
I read a nice article in the paper about this place so I thought I would try it out. What a mistake. The food was HORRIBLE. I had the taste in my mouth days afterwards. On the back of my tongue. I could not brush or rinse it off. I had expected a couple slices of turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy, they do not serve that. What they serve is shredded mixed low quality turkey in some kind of NASTY KILLED IN SALT or Poached and boiled in salt water mixed turkey on a salty saggy bun. The side order was three onion rings or maybe a quarter cup of french fries. The cost was about $20.00 for two of those sandwhiches and one fry and one onion ring. Two ice teas that was more ice than tea and tasted alful as well.
They have nice kids working there and nice picnic area but I swear I will never, never, eat there again. It was that bad. Thumbs down from two very ripped off and grossed out diners. It was sickening.

I'm sure that what you are tasting on the back of your toungue is shit, because you certainly are full of it!!

It is not a drive "thru", the article no where stated turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, it did NOT cost you $20 and the food is not nasty!

3 onion rings? A 1/4 cup of fries? Exaggerate much? Ya, your word holds a lot of weight!

The White Turkey is standing room only on nice days in the summer. This summer is its 57th year in business....if it were as "nasty" as you say, it would have been closed down years ago!

I don't smoke and I don't drink so my taste buds work. The food did cost $20.00 and the side orders were small. The article in the paper said open face white turkey sandwiches, so you are the one full of shit. The food was bad. It has a good traffic flow and that is the reason they stay in business. Like I said. Never again. The other diner with me was not happy either. The paper was full of shit in descibing the food and misled peole into thinking it was the old Woolworths counter type food that was good. Your attitude speaks volumes about the place. Im sure you get lots of practice when people want a refund.

Kelly where is the room you are talking about? This place is a counter like at a fair boothe with a small picnic area behind it in the yard. In Conneaut Ohio on Route 20 East.
The appearance was up kept. Something was wrong with the food order. It was turkey boiled in salt or something and the bun had salt like on a large pretzel. It was horrible. I could not even finish the food, so I politely dumped it in the trash can stacked my tray and left. I promised never again. I feel totally ripped off. My visit was about two weeks ago and I have not forgot the taste of the sauce they claim is so wonderful as it was pure rot gut. Good for them for employing the kids but the people are not going to return if they don't find out what is going on and taste what they are serving.

Did you complain to the mamagement instead of just complaining here? Maybe they would have made it right with you.

I agree they are expensive for what you get. I haven't eaten there lately and though expensive, I never had a bad meal there.

Your order still did NOT come to $20...Look at the menu at www.whiteturkey.com for proof!

2 turkey sandwiches $3.59 each =$7.18
2 ice tea $1.59 each =$3.18
1 onion ring =$2.09
1 French Fry =$2.09

Total =$14.54

When someone says standing room only, that means "no where to sit".

You really needed to speak with them if your food was so horrendous and "nasty" instead of trashing such a nice little place! The owners there are really nice people... they would have bent over backwards to make things right!

Well Kelly I paid the damn bill that day and can tell you I gave the girl a $20 and got .59 back so either they changed the pricing or someone could not add I never did get a receipt for the sale just the change and the plastic number. The set up, One young girl took the order down another steps up takes the money a third give you a plastic number and walks away another says you can go out back and wait or set at the bench out front... very carney like place, with to many fingers in the mix and I'll say we where charge for the largest drinks on the menu given the regular (which was more ice then tea) and the rest of the change got lost in the shuffle. And yes the food was salty as hell and I like salted food but it was nasty kinda like a road salt taste and the sides where thin to say the least and that was what we got, hell I could of got more rings in a Burger King in a kids meal then I got for the $2.09 I paid for the few that showed on the tray. Then we have the wet meat not so much juicy just wet and salty that soaked the bun... like dipping white bread in water yuk! The people that own it maybe the nicest people on earth and yes it looked like a nice place from the street. And the other food they sell maybe ok but their signature sandwich which by the way was billed in the paper as an OPEN FACED TURKEY Sandwich which it was NOT, well lets just say it left a bad taste in my mouth for days. And yes I was gona talk to the manager but no one looked over 18 I figured what's the point I already wasted 20 bucks why add more time to it... and left. And now I'm using my Right to relay my impression of the meal just like the report did and it's a tongue down for me as well.

2 turkey sandwiches $3.59 each =$7.18
2 ice tea $2.49 each =$4.98
1 onion ring =$2.09
1 French Fry =$2.09

SubTotal =$16.34
Tax 1.07
$17.41

Kelly even if your parents own the place and your husband cooked the food. That does not give you the right to act so disrespectful and crude with your foul mouth and your uncaring attitude. You have done nothing but make yourself look worse and embarrass the business your relatives built. Your immaturity and fighting with unhappy customers has only drove away support of your business. You can not handle conflict and have no management skills. I was ripped off and served bad food and then had your filthy mouth as a responce to the problem with nothing but denial. You need to grow up.
Also, the ad says white turkey, that is a lie. The turkey may have had white feathers when it was killed but the food was mixed meat and had something like margaritta salt on it to try and tenderize stringy old birds. The meat was stringy too. Between your foul mouth, denial and bad food all you will do Miss Smartass is have more unhappy customers. You know that poltite people say that ugly babies are cute, but that does not make it so. Same thing can be said about ronchy food. Not to mention the fact we were over billed by some kid who has no math skills. We also recieved no sales slip. Although you got away with it don't think us telling everybody is going to help your bottom line.

Have you ever heard of a posting ID, Mr. Gagging on nasty food? Or is it "I paid" or "Very Disappointed" or the numerous other names you use?
Sorry to break this to you but.... I am not the daughter of the owners. I am in no way affiliated with the White Turkey, just a happy customer of many years!

You claim I am disrespectful and crude with a foul mouth and uncaring attitude? You need to re-read your own posts! Nothing but contempt and lies towards this nice little place AND the Star Beacon!

You claim the paper misled people...where does it say "open face sandwich" or "Woolworths counter type food"? Hum...I don't see that anywhere in that article at all.

And if you never saw the bill how do you know they charged you for 2 giant size drinks?

You can bash me and the White Turkey all you want, I have given people have all the proof they need to see who is misleading people. They can read the menu and the article themselves and see clearly that you (for some unknown reason) are making false statements about the place.

Don't listen to this guy....the food is great and the atmosphere is awesome! Try the chili cheese fries, a Big Ed and a rootbeer in a frosted mug!

How did the bill come to nearly $20.00 dollars? I did not pay but I was there when the change was handed to the person who did.
In my first post I said they do not serve what I had thought they did. It was not a problem. I ordered what they did serve.
The foul mouth part you began in your first post.
You might of had a good experience out there. That does not mean we did not. We had a bad meal and was overcharged to boot.
If you are not the daughter Kelly mentioned in the article then why the rage and foul mouth in the first post as a responce to our experience? Also how is it that you know the menu so well and links to the place? If you frequent the establishment I see no reason to look them up on the web.
Kelly I do think you are the daughter. If that is the case why don't you ask your husband just what if anything he might be doing to the food that maybe is different from the way your parents prepared it?

Kelly, Your post said they charged for two giant sized drinks. They must have, as I see no way the order could of been so much. I saw a $20.00 get handed and a few coins get handed back. Later when we discussed it the person who paid said they got .59 cents back. I said right then it did not seem right.
Then we started to eat and realized the food was bad and we were fooled by the publicity in the paper. We looked around and some other lady was making grimancing faces over her food and shaking her head. Once was enough for us. We swore never again. Threw ours out and left. Rather than eat it and get sick.

It's hardly the end of the world.

Move on.

Actually I'm very lucky I threw out the food.
There is a FEED RECALL on several types of feed right now. Including Poultry Feed. One of the largest poultry feed suppliers Purina has told the feed stores of a recall but not made it known to the general public. There is a supplier who gave them one ingredient they use. The company supplies to other feed dealers as well. The feed is contaminated by aflotoxins. One of the worst cancer causing agents known. They have a web site with info on all the feed types that is also in recall. This is pretty bad. So for anybody reading this if you eat any poultry that just seems wrong it is better to error on the side of caution. The big mega corps who sell are as affected as the family farmer producing his own chickens and turkeys. It is very easy for this type of contamination to hit the food chain and I think I possibly had a taste of one of the sick birds sent for processing. The only other answer I can come up with is the water in the soak tank after processing was just like pure brine water and it made the meat taste bad.
