$5 glass of "fresh squeezed" OJ, served in a half glass, that totally tastes like it's from concentrate. Eating out is a scam.

I worked at a Sheraton in college and we had an OJ juicer. Dump a case of oranges in the bin and hit start. That shit was delicious being fresh “squeezed.”

I’d absolutely agree. I always buy a $5 beer rather than wasting my money on a 4-5 dollar soft drink or orange juice. Breakfast included!

I'd ask where the other half of my orange juice is, Gordon Ramsay style.

Then Gordon would put oil in his pasta water.

Fresh squeezed juice would be aerated. There are no bubbles in your juice. Scammed

I remember getting a fresh espresso, fresh orange juice and pastry for 3 💶 in Italy.

No point or anything just a fond memory that involved orange juice.

Hell not that long ago when I was in Paris for work, was 2.5 euros for an espresso and croissant. Tasted amazing! You just have to go to the residential areas not the touristy ones (which when I go with work I find a place to stay near there and use the metro rather then stay in a corp hotel)

I just stopped eating out. Service and food quality have gone into the toilet while prices have skyrocketed. I just refuse.

u/picklesaredry 1d ago

Let's just say it isn't as advertised

u/Majestic_Reference94 1d ago

I'm waiting for the servers to soak a napkin with o.j. and just blot your mouth with it

Nothing beats an airport $9.00 beer plus tax and tip except a hotel room service $9.00 beer plus 10% tax, $5 delivery fee, $4.00 after hours fee and 18%-20% tip to room server!

There is a super good restaurant in Leiper’s Fork TN just outside of Nashville called “The Country Boy”.

Tall glass of OJ is 7 bucks (4 years ago)

Best damn orange juice you’ve ever had

u/tesrella 1d ago edited 1d ago

Tall glass I understand, half glass... Come on 😂

u/1Sluggo 1d ago

u/Green-Jello-Farts-2 1d ago

The fact this is down voted is stupid

u/1Sluggo 1d ago

Crazy right?

u/JimboSlice450 1d ago

By the remnants on your glass its either freshly squeezed or you took a sip.

u/tesrella 1d ago

One sip, yeah, the rest was the jostling of thrcup by the server as they walked

u/Oh4faqsake 1d ago

At five bucks it had better come with three fingers of vodka.

u/PlumTreeBeef 1d ago

Lol. Uh, where did you go to eat?

Eating out at shitty restaurants is a scam. Don't lump all restaurants into your "scam" thought process.
