No comments about this "low life, cry baby"? Okay, maybe I'm wrong BUT he sure looks like the George that cooked for Ga. Mtn. Restaurant. If it is the same guy....OH PLEASE!!

He does make some nice food, however, hand washing is not one of his strong points. I'm sorry folks...what you don't know can hurt you. I don't want a guy that holds his penis to pee (which may not have been washed since the latest sexual encounter) and goes right into touching my steak for doneness...to be cooking my food!! Honest!...I've seen "the signs".

I know I'll be blasted for being "jealous". It ain't so, or I would be posting against EVERY eating establishment...or cook/chef.

Some of us have worked with this guy. Executive Chef? More like grill cook. You get what you pay for and when you can't afford top shelve you drink rotgut and brag about how it tastes just as good. I've eaten his food and been to the place. Over priced and very average from a person who would be about number 4 on the line in a real eating establishment boiling spaghetti and making salads.
I've known many people who have opened restaurants without any experience in the business who hire staff because they are nice people who will work cheap. Then they pour money into the decor of their facility(Lipstick on a Pig). Then the buy some news print to brag about how great their place is because they like to read their name in the paper. Then they close.
Never again

Sit at the counter at the Huddle House and you'll puck. The cooks wipe their nose and keep on cooking. They stuff garbage they pick off the floor in bags and keep on cooking. They drop butter tubs on the floor pick them up and put them ON the food. They don't wash their hands after using the men's room at least not the time I saw. The girls handle money then food. Filthy. I won't go there again.

I just think it's funny that the chef in the picture is touching the "ready to eat" food with his bare hand!

Real chefs do that to be sure the food is hot before service. You won't see that at McDonalds

Say what you want, I had dinner there in December. It was very good. My company was divine, the service was excellent, and the food was quite tasty. I will go there again if I get the chance.

Oh yes that's exactly what i was TRYING to say. I guarantee you if that's what i was trying or wanting to say I WOULD HAVE SAID IT ! Something such as that nonsense only comes from SOMEONE who has had such an experience ....so i guess the ole saying TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE fits in quite well here.....not to mention that jibberish made very little sense....you're dropped of school in fourth grade education shows well on here

Yeah we should all leave, take our money that you count on to pay taxes and so forth. Thank God that all the people up here aren't as stupid as you and those like you. Why don't you move, you seem to think you are above everyone no matter where they are from, so maybe you should help the other unfortunates out there that probably just sitting on pins and needles waiting for your opinon.I have seen you on several topics on here and you are always putting people down, sounds like small man syndrome.
