I went there on August 23, 2023 around 4 pm. I got thier 2 for 1 special 1/2 BBQ Chicken dinners. Took 1 & 1/2 home couldn't eat a whole meal. It was ok. But not great. I also ordered the chicken bowl salad To take home... See More and have for lunch on Wednesday 8/23. On Wednesday, I went and had some for brunch. I hadn't had any breakfast. I had gotten up late. I proceeded to put a third of the lettuce, cucumbers and Chicken into a bowl. Put some of the honey mustard dressing they gave me on it. I ate about 1/2 of it. While I was eating it I thought it was tasting funny to me. So I did not eat anymore of it. I threw it away. Plus what was left in the refrigerator. Within an hour I started feeling Nauseous & Pains in my stomach. Then in a while I ended up with soft stools, then Diarrhea and then all liquid. From around 5:30 until 1:15 in the morning. I lived in the bathroom as soon as I would walk out the door I would have to turn around and go right on the toilet again. I became so exhausted. But yet I couldn't go to sleep. Cause I was constantly going into the bathroom. I have never been so sick in my life. I also had a lot of gas in my stomach I was burping a lot and it smelt like gassy lettuce & Chicken. Felt like I had to vomit but never did. I was not well for 2 days. Thursday I just stayed in bed all day and slept. I was to weak to do anything. Friday I started feeling alittle better. Ended up throwing away all the other food was afraid I would get sick on it also. I do not wish this sickness on anyone. It is horrible. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Gas, Burping, Other See Less
