See Moreer got to even eat the steak he ordered, too sick! I don't know the name of the restaurant, but would report them if I could!!
    It was either the salad or the soda. He had ordered those items and a steak of which he never got to eat. Had eaten a little salad and drank some of the soda, and suddenly felt sick and had to rush to the bathroom and throw up! I believe he said the restaurant name started with the name Big, but couldn't remember the rest of the name. This happened on Friday, April 30, 2021. It was just one person, my son, by himself that stopped to eat there at the "Big" whatever name, he couldn't remember the rest. The guys at his job site wanted to know so they wouldn't eat there!! He said symptoms started right away after eating a bite or two of the salad and drinking the soda. He felt fine before stopping their to eat. I am relaying this information from what he told me and my questions to him. Since he is working several hundred miles away from home, I was greatly concerned. This is all the information I have, except the incident occurred in mid afternoon on, Friday, 4/30/21.
