Comments of the Day: Tortoise-Like Service?

Here on Eating Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog, and our Comment of the Day honors the best of the bunch.

Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.

In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.

Part of the long lines is the tortoise like service. It took 20 minutes for a 2 meat a la carte with one person in front of me getting a small order. The ribs and brisket were delicious, but these folks need to get their act together and speed it up a couple of notches.

Sharon Worster had a retort for him, though:

Yes, but the wait is totally worth it!! This ain't fast food y'all. It's the best food.
