    I am going to start only honoring allergy requests if the guest can produce a doctor's note or prescribed EpiPen.

    Hey now, back the truck up. When I'm looking for rabbit food this is among my favorite salads. Prefer the caesar, chicken grilled and don't forget the parm...

    Being diabetic I have to eat sugar free and low carb. I always get lettuce wrapped burgers, always get grilled instead of breaded and don't skimp on the cheese or buffalo sauce, please! I know it sounds odd, like a double Big Mac with a diet coke kinda weird but my cholesterol has went from really really bad to normal. Not all of your diners are cuckoo for cocoa puffs lol.

    Lately my boss has been quite vocal when saying "What is this a f-in hospital." People eating in the dining room can hear it, wife comes in to yell at chef...priceless.

    Get old people coming in and wanting scampi but not too well done, so we microwave it for a few seconds and put it in the oven for 5 mins. They say it's amazing!

    Few years ago when I was working at a sushi restaurant, a lady was allergic to fish. She request us to make her some veggie maki and demand use to wash/sanitize or not use the knife and cutting board on a Friday night while she is watching

    I once asked for a tuna fish sandwich...and to hold the mayonnaise.
