INSITE PET PEEVE OF THE WEEK: CAJUN GRILL!

“WILL YOU PLEASE GIVE ME A CHANCE TO DECIDE WHAT I WANT…”

I can’t be the only one this has happened to. First, let me say I love the bourbon chicken sold at the chain of Cajun Grills that can be found in any Mall USA. I just have to have it once a month. But the problem I face anytime I go to a Cajun Grill in the Woodlands Mall or the Galleria, the employees try to rush you into a food decision. It’s like they’re in a huge hurry when you’re the only person in the line. I don’t know if it’s a high pressure sales tactic but it is so irritating. There was a woman at the Woodlands mall deciding what she wanted and the server was rushing her and just started putting his choices on her plate. The woman was so pissed. She yelled “would you give me a damn chance to decide, my God.” The man eventually backed off. But the woman became so upset she walked over to the Wendy’s stand. Just Thursday night I was trying to find an alternative to bourbon chicken and another server just started putting food on my plate after I told him I was still deciding. I went off. He had to take all the food off my plate and wait until I made up my mind. But I wasn’t prepared to walk away from the good food. I received the same type of service in the Galleria, Greenspoint Mall and Northline Mall (I think that’s the name). But if I could give Cajun Grill employees any advice it would be to take a chill pill and allow customers to decide what they want – especially if there aren’t a lot of customers in line. This was the Insite’s Pet Peeve of the Week! Has it happened to you?
