Came here to post about it. Never heard of it until I was there Thursday night. It's an Izzys copycat. Not as good yet very solid.

Got there late and the guys already ordered for the table. Brisket, smoked lamb IIRC, smoked chicken, ribs and fried Oreos (not on the menu but waitress told us about them) for dessert.

Finally made it to MainHouse BBQ and was terribly disappointed by their food. The ambiance and service was excellent but the food was just blah (compared to Izzy's, Graze, or anywhere else for that case). It was presented beautifully, but tasted mediocre.

We had:
"Homemade Blueberry lemonade" sounded delicious but tasted like Simply Lemonade brand.
Brisket main (we chose lean), was lean with a layer of fat at the edge. Wasn't juicy enough for my palate. The slaw and pickles were okay.
Special of Trio sliders: we chose sloppy yosef, turkey and pastrami. Sloppy yosef was best, then turkey, then pastrami. All three had too much sauce to taste the meat.
For sides, we had schmaltzy mashed potatoes, veg. medley, and corn bread. No wow moment for any of those.
The wheat beer they had on tap was superb!

Everything was okay, better than Hermolis economy KSML, but that's about it.

Overall a very nice experience, but not for foodies.

Did you try bookwithmatrix?

Ok great. Seemed like the food at Gam Gam is nothing to write home about and from the way everyone raves about Pom meals it didn't seem like it was just for absolute desperate situations.

People don't specifically go to spend Shabbos at GamGam in Venice for the food, they go for the experience, and no Pom meals will give you that...

I can't see how this would be a positive for us, it's the quirks and differences that create an unlevel playing field, and opportunities for those that know how to take advantage.

I can't imagine the individual programs would be willing to just give up their individuality (quirks/restrictions/complications etc), it'll probably be more like a GDS for award-booking integration but each program would still have its own chart/rules etc.

razor scooters have survived very well.

But they started as a fad. I think the way you know it's a fad is when you start seeing aftermarket copycat made-in-china fakes for pennies on the dollar.

And pogs, and silly bandz, and beenie babies, and the list goes on...

I think this deserves its own thread...

Spinner Yoyos, razor scooters, hoverboards, tickle-me-elmos, Tamagachi

You can ask that about any restaurant. If so many fail, why do people still try?

How long does a place have to be popping for the owners to recover their investment?

Why is everything in Israel so complicated?!?

The the USA you have a few thousand HHing MSers in a country of 3000m people. In Israel you have millions of people trying to gave the system, and people with that same mindset designing and managing these products/programs.

I would call the police straight up.

Might or might not get your bag back this way, but will definitely earn you a blacklist.

Why are you posting this here, and why now?

That wiki is way out of date, almost none of it it's true anymore :D

What happened on LX that was so bad you switched to TK?

I think it's time I make a list of all my promised likes and collect them when you guys are on a computer. Lol

I liked your post on behalf of DTB, so don't include that one :P
