The SCVFoodie team has been going to Dink’s in Granary Square for years. We don’t go to the one at the Valencia Town Center because it’s basically the same menu, just more expensive to pay for the Town Center real estate prices. So at Granary Square, we do love the chicken noodle soup, especially when we’re sick and the breakfast burritos (pictured above) are simple, yet delicious. The burritos could be our favs in the entire SCV, but we haven’t done enough taste-testing to compare—yet.
Dink’s in Granary Square is a no-nonsense restaurant where you order and pay at the counter and then they deliver to your table. Simple, right? Unfortunately for Dink’s it’s not. We can’t tell you how many times they’ve lost our order slips between the cash register and the kitchen window. During our last visit, a few weeks ago, we watched as two parties complained because their orders were lost in that Bermuda Triangle. Our order wasn’t lost, but when I ordered a fountain drink, and then took a sip at the table, the soda was warm.
I asked for ice, but the staff told me that they had run out. Don’t you think that this is something you should tell customers before handing them piss-temperature Diet Coke? Or maybe how about buying some ice at the Ralphs at the other end of the shopping plaza? This is why we have such a love-hate relationship with the place. Love the food, but the service leaves so much to be desired.
And don’t even get us started how the food establishment has no restrooms for customers.
