    Pros: Everybody should be able to find something to eat!

    Pros: Cemetery right next door in case you get food poisoning
    Cons: Too far from home in order to rush to the bathroom after eating there.

    Summary: My first experience with a GC was about 10 years ago and wasn't stellar. I should have relied on history. My visit today for breakfast reminded me why I do not frequent this establishment. The variety, though great, was bland and tasteless. The ... read more
