Dickey's Barbeque North Branch, MN
I left a nice, honest review of this place on Yelp. I received the following response...

I sent a three page letter detailing my bad experience at this restaurant but I decided to give it one last try.

On Monday, August 27, 2012, I pulled through the drive through one last time and I outlines my experience here.
"This is too strange to be true. After a letter from the manager apologizing I decided tonight that I would give them one more shot. I didn't expect much to be impressed, only the usual level of service you are given at a normal drive-through restaurant.
The coast was clear... There was not a single car in the drive through and not more than 2 to 3 people in the restaurant, time to STRIKE!
I pulled my car into the drive through and I ordered two pulled pork sandwiches and two orders of their waffle fries. The speaker at the drive through yelled at ear deafening levels "TWO ORDERS OF FRIES!!!"
After 3 minutes the young lady came back to tell me that they "were out of pork for the next half hour". I told her I would find something else to eat and she said "ok".
I want to leave a positive review for this place, I really do.
They are making it impossible and this has almost become a macabre game that I feel like I am being forced into playing.
I will get a decent meal from this place, and I will receive reasonable service. (I am going to say that out loud to myself for 5 minutes in the Shopko parking lot prior to pulling through here again).
Am I just that unlucky? Am I just cursed?!
I am too astonished not to think this is not just a bad episode of Punk'd or something. I will try again. Maybe in a week, maybe in a month.
If this happens one more time, I will think it's about time to "86" this restaurant."

I didn't post this until Yelp! took my comments off because they thought I was sabotaging a business... I guess they don't have any experience with a business this bad.
