schlotzksy's SUCKS

so.  went to shlotzsky's for lunch.  had about 35 minutes to order, eat, and get back to the office by the time i got there (thanks to bf and errands guhh..) which i knew wasn't much time anyway, but still.

ordered the combination special pizza, no cheese, no pepperoni.  wait 15 minutes...no pizza...  turns out they put meat on it.  ok, so they make a new one.  wait 10 more minutes...  this one has cheese on it!  !!!    >:( >:( >:(

they make a new one, meanwhile we got our money back...  by the time it comes out, it's 10 til 1 and i have to walk back to the office, so i got it to go.  this one has.....drumroll please.....  NO SAUCE!

thank god i doused it in hot sauce before i left.  i'm done with that place.  last time i went i got a sammich, no mayo...  came with mayo (after waiting about 20 minutes).

LAME.

after I read the NO SAUCE part..I had to laugh..but it was in a omg sort of way.  That sucks.  I hate eating out.  I get so excited because I don't have to cook but then am usually disappointed. There is a new vegan restaurant that I want to try though...but it is quite a drive so I am saving it for when I have to do a bunch of things so I won't waste gas.

it probably depends where you are located.  here in wv it is a complete anomoly to try to go to a chain restaurant and actually expect that your food will come out correctly when you make veg*n changes to it.

i was uber pissed, but my veg*n bf was just like, yeah i'm used to it.  he's been vegan for years now.  literally every single time we go out to eat, at least one of our food is screwed up in some way. 

"no cheese???!!!  why wouldn't you want cheese?...crazy!"

actually, once i got back to the office and was finally eating the crappy end product, my bosses surrounded me and were like, "that's not pizza, there's not cheese on it!"  what narrowminded fucks.

heh, I know the feeling. Luckily in Austin, where I'm vacationing, it's a normal course of affairs for people to want vegan food. However, in PA where I live..not so much. So, I'm enjoying it while I can.

I found one pizza place in my area that has a tomato pie on the menu.  It is just a mom and pop pizza parlor, but I have yet to see this anywhere else within a 50 mile radius of my home.  It's actually tasty too!!  I kind of gave up on getting pizza till I found this place, cause it was pretty much impossible to get it witout cheese.  Seems simple enough to not put cheese on a pizza, but as we know it's never that simple.

I live in PA too - it's a good 45 minute drive to the closest vegan-friendly restaurant.

yes, we got it free.  they tried to offer us free cookies, but we were like, yeah...we can't eat those, thanks anyway.  so they gave us our money back.  the pizza was just a crust w/tomatoes, green peppers, a tiny amount of black olives, and a shitton of mushrooms (which i hate and picked off).  i added hot sauce.  but there was NO SAUCE!  laaaame.

usually that's the case with me but i've had surprisingly constant good luck with taco bell unless they are super busy.

i live in seattle.  lots of vegan/vegetarian restaurants here.

i'm from oklahoma, though.  not so much the case there.
i understand explaining "vegan" to people since a lot of
people still don't know that one (although it's improving!)
but in oklahoma i have had to literally explain what a
"vegetarian" was.  that person looked at me like i've been
living my life without air all of this time. 

i especially love it when they say, "that's impossible!
you HAVE to have meat, dairy, and eggs or else you'll
die!!!"  like, um, i've been a vegetarian for almost twenty
years and i've been a vegan for the last seven of those...
i'm very much NOT dead, thank you very much!
;D

i generally say that I have diary allergies or whatnot, then they actually do it right.
Jason's Deli is super bad about messing up orders.
i like places like Subway and Qdoba, where you watch them making it. can't mess up that way!

my husband is not vegetarian, but he eats a heck of a lot healhier than me... only wholewheat, no sugar, no oils, super lean mean, yucky(im sure) fat free cheese, unprocessed stuff  blah blah blah bodybuilder person, and, I swear, they mess up his food more than mine. I mean, how hard is it to leave off the mayo, and not add oil or butter to his steamed veggies lol.

his diet is more restricitive than my vegan one...everyone thinks we're crazy when we order at restuarants. lol

my hubby and i went out to a local mexican place the other day and ordered bean burritos.  they came back with.....greasy BEEF burritos.  That was our second mixup thus far.  The first time, he got unwanted pepperoni on his pizza.

This happened to me the other day at a chinese restaurant.  I ordered MaPa tofu off the vegetarian menu and it came with pork mixed in.  Luckily I had my mom taste it since it looked funky to me.  They remade it using lots of extra veggie and tofu...the second attempt was really tasty.
