Bluntly speaking Sammy's popularity has always relied quite heavily on the parade of lovely young females that doubled as waitresses, in years past I also found the food to be decent and enjoyable. Get the guys from work together, grab a few beers, have a meal and oggle the waitresses. No apologies. In a nutshell that is Sammy J's. However the last few times the food has gone downhill (even the nachos are now garbage) and the service has become atrocious. Our waitress was clearly more worried about getting her Junior Paris Hilton patch than actually serving us with any manner of competence. When she refilled our soft drinks she mixed up the cups!! Being a waitress was obviously getting in the way of her main occupation which is being fabulous.
Sammy's get your act together!

I've tried to like Vera's. Went to the one on Cornwall quite a long time ago, back then it was the place with the broken exhaust fan so we just reeked of grease by the time we left, this coupled with the totally indifferent/unfriendly staff (ok minimum wage is a bitch but get on with it!) and basically ho-hum burger made we wonder what all the hype was about.
Fast forward 2 yrs and I decided to give the Vera's on Denman another shot. Lo and behold the staff still suck! Yup I guess the minimum wage hasn't gone up in 2 yrs. I ordered up a burger, added up all the fixings I wanted along with fries and a shake and I was at 16 bucks! 16 bucks for a burger,fries and shake? Yup I agree that is retarded. This better be a great burger, alas the meal was fine, actually better than my previous experience but this wasn't a 16 buck burger.
My biggest pet peeve is still the crapola staff, when I went the place was empty and the girls working behind the counter were just chatting, you know the kind of talking that makes you think they are peeved you dared interrupt them. When my burger was done the lard butt behind the counter had to call my order up as it was too much trouble for her to walk the 5 feet to my table to deliver the food. This is it Vera folks, I just can't give you anymore chances.
