  2. We were having dinner at one of our favorite restaurants (like, this is the place we take people when they are in town to visit) when a cockroach apparently escaped from my husband’s rolled up napkin, ran across the table, and camped out on the coaster under my drink. We finished our dinner that night, but stayed away for months. Then a flood caused them to close for several weeks while they cleaned up and remodeled. We’ve been back several times since then, but certainly aren’t going there like we were before…

      That seems a little worse than knowing about a bad inspection report, and you guys still went back. That makes me feel better because I KNOW I will be back and will eat food at POPE again. Did the restaurant comp your dinner?

    Yeah. Sigh. I’ll keep an eye out for an updated inspection. I think this is good, because this means I’ll spend less money there.

    After reading about the pest poison in the food prep areas, or really I’d say any number of violations that could cause food-borne illness (especially since I know how wretched they can be), I’d have to stay away, no matter how much I loved the place!

    I would go back if a future inspection proved that the restaurant tightened up! If you keep going, I’d stick to just drinks at POPE. Or if you go back, just hope the alcohol kills whatever else may be lurking.
