Blob's Park

Max Blob's Bavarian Biergarten AKA Blob's Park is a local institution. It serves German food and frequently hosts polka bands. It is closing soon, and my mom thought it would be a good idea to get some take out for the whole family to enjoy before the place went out of business. My grandfather loves sour beef (sauerbraten) & dumplings and we rarely have it so we all ordered that. Worse decision ever. Let's just say it is a blessing that this place is closing down. The meal consisted of barely cooked through (in sharp contrast to the fall apart tenderness of good sauerbraten), fat coated, tough, cold, greasy and barely flavored cubes of cheap beef. Ick. The dumplings were leaden blobs of dough and they couldn't even pull off a decent green bean. No one could eat more than a few bites. My dad went back to complain and they said the food was great and he didn't deserve a refund. He didn't back down and the manager end up throwing a $20 bill at him, which only covered about 1/3 of the total bill. Horrible, horrible food and dreadful customer service.
