Double T Diner
Bel Air, MD
Not sure if it was my pleasure to visit the Double T Diner. I was hungry but there is a time when you have to say this "supersize" portions are freakin crazy. Now going back sometime my most pleasurable experience living in New York, Long Island was going to the local diner for a regular cheeseburger for lunch or a Western Omelette for breakfast. The size was perfect. Not enormously gigantic portions. The portions was just enough. Then the supersize craze came into being and appears the Double T Diner hasn't changed. Now I know there are viewers that disagree, they like the portions and whatever leftover, they take a doggie bag home.
Now, times are a changing. People are more aware of portion control and those that have limited their portions find Double T's portion as way too much. They rather not go then think of wasting a meal.
Weight gain is very much on the minds of diners for the most part but when you look at the menu, its like a book. My question that comes to mind is how often are those meals served and how much of those ingredients go bad or how do they cover the spoilage flavor?
I love Greek food and my favorite is the Gyro platter with seasoned beef. I get sliced tomatoes and onions with Tzarziki sauce, and French fries. The little Greek salad with feta cheese and olives and lettuce with a nice dressing. Never had a bad experience. But the other day taking my daughter ice skating, she was hungry. Thought the Double T would be a good idea. Ordered chocolate chip pancakes for her and I had a Western Omelette. The omelette was huge and honestly no flavor. My daughter's 3 pancakes were also huge but smushy, literally not fluffy. So, bad I complained and the waitress took it off the bill.
I expect the dish to be made right even if its a smaller portion and have flavor. Am I asking for too much, I don't think so!
My advice to the Double T Diner, get with the program and change.
On a scale of 1-5 with 5 being excellent, the breakfast I had with my daughter I give them a "1". Poor.
