  1. Read it earlier this AM. What a pan, guess that's what one would expect from a 500 seat establishment. The review makes for a good laugh.

    1. Wow that was the worst review I've ever read in the NYT, dude can't even get the nachos right.

      1. It was a well earned review : )

        1. Whammo , this place gives Dives a bad name!

          1. And it will do just fine because it's in Times Square, and the people who go to eat there don't know anything about the NY Times, but they know a lot about Guy Fieri. Really revolting.

              This is a classic, albeit pathetic, example of the old line about "laughing all the way to the bank". Such a shame, if people did just a little digging they could find places to eat that would really give them an idea of what NYC offers and at less then what this crapshack is charging.

                Crapshack?.......Beautiful. May I quote you?.....lol

                  I frequently have guests from Egypt who think that places like MacDonald's and Burger King are fine places to eat. They think that Times Square is the center of NYC, and that no trip to NY is complete without a photo there. I'm not sure that they would actually go to this place, but if they did, they might be slightly puzzled, but they would think that it was pretty much ok. These are the folks who, when I've taken them to Pepe's Pizzeria, ask the waitress for ketchup to put on their pizza.

                    Right - Guy Fieri's fans won't care about the New York Times review. It will just be a fun meal for them to post on Facebook.

                    Spirt, rox......quite right and nicely stated. Crapshack....love it!

                      "Crapshack" is my new favorite word :)

                        That is indeed the worst of it: that it will do OK because of its location. Only tourists will ever go and he will make money on serving inedible, overpriced, pretentious crap.
