Famous Frenchy's Update

Went back to Famous Frenchy's for lunch when I noticed a few changes:

1) A new sign out front and inside. New colours and some price increases.

2) A Membership Card

3) My review in its entirety printed out, lamenated, and posted for all to see!

The man up front taking orders (I think it was owner Shonn, but I could be wrong) and I was chatting with him. He asked if I had been there before and I said I had and enjoyed the burger. He gave me a Membership card, and I mentioned the new board up and he said very few people noticed the difference, the colour change to red, and the small price increase. He said they had to raise prices because they were losing money, and I said they were new business and there was a learning curve. He agreed and mentioned that they were first timers in the business.

After I ate my burger, I started walking out. There is a cork board up where people can post post-it notes as a comment board. To the left is Ron Eade's original article. To the left of the board I saw my skull symbol and noticed that my review had been printed out! How awesome is that?

Oh I got a cheeseburger with bacon, all dressed (no relish), pickles, hot peppers, a small onion ring and a root beer. So good. Burger delight.

Very cool!

See? You're famous:)

But he lies. They didn't raise prices because they were losing money. They raised them because your post raised the demand for their product. He just didn't want it to go to your head ;)

I went to Famous Frenchy's last week and I did not have a good experience. My burger was under cooked and when i tried to take it back for them to re-cook, I was told (i think by the male owner) that because I had already "ate half of the burger" that it was to late. I left my tray on the counter and said i was finished. As i was leaving the guy shouted at me to get out and don't come back. Must of been having a bad day

Anonymous 1 - still don't know - I'm guessing it had to do with Urban Spoon? But they have taken the words down.

Anonymous 2 - That sucks, I'm sorry it when food and service crap out.

Very similar experience to Anonymous, the owner is a childish thug and a practiced liar. The "best burger" vote garbage has been up since he opened, just another lie.
