Clearly, we have different opinions on food. Now it makes sense that we disagree about Skyline and Lechem Ubasar as well.

To sum up this thread, no mehadrin meat restaurant in Israel is impressive/better than a 7.
The end.

If you're into quantity over quality, sure.
Either way, it's not better than a 7.
