Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting Cramps Gas
“I went there on 01/11/20 at around 8pm. My family ordered mostly breakfast items, but I ordered the Cali Burger. When I received the food, the beef patty seemed burnt but the bacon seemed almost raw. We all tasted a bit of each others food, except no one else tried... See More my burger. I couldn't bring myself to eat most of it, especially after seeing the almost raw bacon. We left the restaurant around 9pm, by about 11pm I started getting extremely painful stomach cramps. I had to rush to the bathroom and threw up pretty much all my stomach contents. For several hours after that I alternated between having painful stomach cramps, dry heaving, lots of gas and eventually boughts of diarrhea. I debated going to the ER, but settled in taking pepto bismol, and hoping the pain would go away. By about 7am, most of the pain had subsided and I was able to get some rest. I was the only one of my family to get sick, and since no one else ate the burger, I deduced it was the cause of the food poisoning.

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Vomiting
“Me and some friends went yesterday. I got the Belgian waffle with eggs and bacon and my friend got something similar and within 24 hours we both vomited and felt immediately better after getting the food out of our systems. It is possible that this was a coincidence but honestly... See More it makes sense considering I also found a hair in my waffle (I didn't send it back because I'm not a boomer but it was still gross and points to the fact that the food is not the best quality). So yeah yuck.
