Beware of Arby's on 82nd

So, it somehow feels wrong to transition from my trip to Thailand and India to a blog about Arby's, but here it is anyways...

Leslie and I had a little sister lunch yesterday and went to Arby's - we both secretly love us a Beef N Cheddar...Anyways, as we walked through the doors I was hit by a horrible odor and we also couldn't help but notice that there were flies zooming all about. We had conditioned our stomachs for the Beef N Cheddar so there was no turning back...other small issues continued - the soft drinks were messed up (too much syrup), the tables were dirty, etc...

Anyways, we both politely ignored it until the end of our meal when I finally mentioned the smell...So, Leslie tells me that a few months ago she went through the drive-through for a meal for Ava and found that the milk was expired by 10 days! It was as if my eyes were genuinely opened to the reality of the nastiness that we were in, when at that moment we literally had two flies tumble to our table. These were not any two flies, however, oh no - they were in the process of mating! Have you ever seen two flies mate? It's not pretty - and they bounced all over our table...

Well, one look at each other and we lost it! Literally we were laughing so hard that I began to tear up and Leslie said, "I think that about sums up our time here..." We left. So, just wanted to warn all my Lubbockite readers about the Arby's on 82nd...you may get more than a Beef N Cheddar.

That is so nasty!! Just so you know the Burger King next door is bad too. James got food poisoning from his hamburger. BEWARE!!!

Aaaahhhh- The 82nd Arby's. I was kicked out of there MANY a times back in my high school days. :-) We were a bunch of rowdy kids.
BUT- they've been struggling for a while now...if you go through their drive-you know you'll have a min. of a 10 minute wait. But nostalgia always drags me back...


MAYBE....someone should put in a call to Food For Thought!

Way to go! People should be warned. I still love me some Beef N Cheddar though. And the curly fries!
