    U had a horrible experience. There a Gotcha in Fayetteville. I’ve never been but because of your Atlanta review I’m going to check out the Fayetteville location. Just curious to see how the service is in a higher income area with more Caucasians

      I should do the same. See if they are treating folks like that there. Thank you for the info.

    I’ve never been to the Atlanta location but the food at the Fayetteville location was a amazing. I don’t think it has anything to do with race. The restaurant was full to capacity with only black customers. Fayetteville much have a better staff

    I visited the Fayetteville location right before the New Year and your experience in Atlanta reminded me so much of my dining experience in Fayetteville. My family and I were more than disappointed with our brunch. The food was lackluster and outside of our waitress, nobody else wanted to be at work. I would love to read a review of the Fayetteville location to hear what you think.

    I recently dined at the Fayetteville location and I agree wholeheartedly with the Hungry Black Man. I had the Veggie Omelet and potatoes which left a lot to be desired. The biscuit had what I thought was syrup and it was watery and didn’t have a good taste at all. My friend had a waffle, bacon and grits which he said wasn’t all that good. His bacon was burned and had that honey sauce on it. As a matter of fact they put that on everything. I thought they should have served it on the side giving the customer the option to put it on their food if they wanted to. My son had the French toast which he said was mediocre. I had a mimosa that tasted weak and had the taste of either having inferior orange juice or very cheap champagne. It was very crowded for being in a pandemic and the music was SO LOUD I couldn’t hear the others in my party. I could feel the bass vibrating in my chest. So, as I stated in the beginning I agree with the Hungry Black Man. Oh, and I could see the chef’s back while the food was being cooked because the kitchen is right next to the bar and open to the dining room. Overall, MUCH improvement is needed and the service wasn’t all that neither.

    I have dined at both and had a awesome experience and I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ the food. I have referred so many friends and clients and they all loved it.

    I have had decent experiences at Gocha’s in Atlanta but this is the reason why it is hard to continue going to these establishments. They drop the ball so soon in the game. They label themselves as “upscale” but have no clue how to provide the experience consistently. It is more than just decor. It’s the entire experience. I have not tried some of the other breakfast spots you mentioned but they are now on my list. Thank you THEHUNGRYBLACKMAN for this review article.

    Man..I didn’t know about this restaurant.Now that I know,me better stay away from it.

    Speaking of reviews in the ATL,I’m glad that you did visit Paschal’s. I just wanted to make sure that it wasn’t just me. Though I want to the full restaurant in Castleberry Hill and you are the airport..it sucked..from customer service to the food..it was horrible! The sad part about is that I went there TWICE! This was a couple of years back.

    A month or two ago,you visited a Cape Verdean restaurant in Boston.I read some of the comments on there. I’m not Cape Verdean but I’m an ATlien born and raised. When you expressed your dismay about the Airport Paschal’s,the manager said that he/ she make improvements in there( I hope)

    The owner/ manager could have took offense over your comment. Rather than to curse you out,they wanted to make improvements over it..which is how I would have done it. It’s also great for potential/ former customers like me. The first time I visited Paschal’s,I was excited..thinking that the food / customer service was going to be like that of my parents..Not!

    My friends and I were served cold chicken ..fried/ baked( the ran out of fried chicken..which was another problem pre pandemic). Whether it was the chicken or side items. It was flavorless and tasted like cardboards and rubber bands. When some of my friends complained,the server had the audacity to cock an attitude at us( I promise that we didn’t do the same to her.)

    There is nothing wrong with criticism. I just hate when you see these supposed food critics on TV telling you about these 1,000,001 restaurants and every last one of them are good.C,’mon now,that’s impossible.
