I am surprised there isn't more content on this site. They have about 1.6 million 1-star reviews. A techie should be able to write a program to import all of those reviews from the site.
i like your enthusiasm for the site, however, there are plenty of legitimate 1-star reviews. consider this an artisan, hand-crafted tumblr that’s curated by some schmuck wasting time on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
“I was walking by a dry cleaner at 3 a.m., and it said “Sorry, we’re closed.” You don’t have to be sorry. It’s 3 a.m., and you’re a dry cleaner. It would be ridiculous for me to expect you to be open. I’m not gonna walk by at 10 a.m. and say, “Hey, I walked by at 3, you guys were closed. Someone owes me an apology. This jacket would be halfway done!”—
I was excited by the idea of this Tumblr but half these entries are totally legit complaints. The guy who ordered the sandwich and received separately packaged slices of bread? How is he a douchebag? That place must really suck!
The review is for Bludso’s which is a great BBQ joint in South LA. The reason the bread is packaged separately is so that the sandwich doesn’t get soggy from all the BBQ sauce. It’s actually really considerate of them to do so.
It bums me out that you think the place sucks based on that review.
I’ve been over there, and had a great time. Met w/ Mr. Bludso, talked about football and enjoyed some great BBQ that you really can’t get on my side of town.
Forget the review…if you’re ever in the area, try it for yourself:
“Aside from the meat-heads/losers/scumbags who stand around in front all day and smoke cigars and tell stories about “beating that fool down and then saying, like, what up now!”, this place is pretty okay. But it is worth visiting only if you are desperate enough to deal with the lack of parking, jobless local residents/”background actors” and roving transplants from the East Coast and Scientology across the street.”—
“I ordered the broiled crab cakes and they were really good and i called and asked if i could speak to the supervisor and the girl that asnswerd the phone wanted to know what it was in reference to and I told her it was regarding the food i ordered and and she said what was wrong with it and i said nothing i just wanted to let him or her know that it was good and then she was like ok hold on. When the manager got on the phone and i thanked him and let him know it was good he said thank you and you welcome but seemed like he was in a rush. I don’t think i will be eating their anymore because if the manager is not nice then what does that say about the business they are running and the people in it.”—
“I walked through the door of this place and one look at the crowd was enough to convince me it wasn’t for me and I left. If you yelled “La Migra!” in there everyone would bolt for the back door. A little too autentico for my taste, but you could probably swing by there with your pickup truck to get some day laborers.”—
“The crowd, okay I guess… mostly Asians and Mexicans, each ignoring each other. I meet one classy person though. Some chubby Mexican guy with a pierced lip, trendy hat and a neck tie walked into the bathroom, I was next in line. He walked straight up to the bathroom I told him the line started 10 people behind me. He asked me if I had ever been to prison, some place called “The Pit”. He then insisted I apologize to him… no way I am fighting a chubby Mexican with anger and fashion issues over a very dirty toilet!! Oh yeah and someone probably a relative of the same guy apparently mistaken the urinal for a toilet, party foul for going #2 in the urinal on a busy night…”—
“Although I never actually stepped foot inside this restaurant, I can’t comment on the food, atmosphere, etc. What I can tell you is that we made a reservation at 4 in the afternoon for myself, my husband and our twin boys (10 months old). The girl who answered the phone treated us like we had the plague instead of twins.”—
I don’t like Vroman’s and I have a valid reason. I only go to bookstores to read their tabloid magazines for free! I usually buy my books online since it’s way cheaper.
Anyways, Vroman’s has ALL their magazines on racks outside in front of their store. First of all they don’t provide tables (outside) for you to read. Secondly, the attendant outside is always glaring at you if you start flipping through a magazine for more than five minutes. Come on!!! Chill, I’m sure you don’t get commission on the items you sell.
My husband and I went there for the first time since we heard about their great steak. Of course we made a reservation, we got on time, then they took us to the small dining area that had about 10 tables. Well, there was already one asian group enjoying their dinner. While we were wating for our food, there came another asian group, and another and another. By the time we finished our food, people in that small room were all minoroty. My husband got up and went to look at the main dining area and guess what he found out. I don’t even have to say. We’re not going back there ever again. What a great restaurant for $200 dinner!”—
1-star review of Mastro’s Steakhouse by Hye Won L.
“If I am eating Mexican, I need my salsa. I don’t give a crap how much tomatoes cost now. If I went to a burger place and they gave me 1 packet of ketchup, I would go Al Qaeda on them. But he is still much better than the cheap ass bastard at the La Salsa in the Glendale Galleria. I am surprised no one beat that guys ass yet.”—
