I keep an eye on my local restaurants, so a lot of times, I hype myself up about going to these places and often times I find myself disappointed in one way or another. I don’t say that to negatively speak about this restaurant I am doing a review on today, but from following them on Instagram and reading articles and reviews and seeing the menu; I definitely hyped myself up for a mild let down.
I am one of those people that watch mukbangs online. Yes, I watch videos of people eating. This is a no judgement zone! But in watching those videos, I became intrigued by the Korean corn dog. I am not normally a fan of corn dogs but I love gooey, melty cheese so I figured I would love this kind of corn dog. I proceeded to google search if these were sold in my area and came across Orlando Meats.
We go to this restaurant and try the Korean corn dog and the Meat Cue Pizza. The customer service was very subpar. The guy at the counter acted like we were wasting his time when we were deciding what to order. The person I was with had never heard of that restaurant and took some time to look over the menu. Also, there was nobody behind us so it wasn’t like we were holding up a line. But giving people the benefit of the doubt, I brushed it off my shoulders. And as we proceeded to order, he was rushing us and talking fast basically trying to get us out of the way. It wasn’t the worst experience but it definitely wasn’t a great one. It made enough of an impact on me that I’m in no hurry to return to this place.

The Meat Cute Pizza
The pizza was more tasty than the corn dog but then again I am biased against corn dogs in general. I would give this restaurant a 5/10 because while the food was good, the customer service and atmosphere matters more in a restaurant to me. I would return to a place that doesn’t have the best food but the best customer service over a place that has amazing food and horrible customer service. And I’m not saying the food was amazing, it was good however.
If you’re in the Orlando area, check this place out. You may have a better experience than I did *shrugs*
