If you listen to the ROR Morning Show, you know that we love to eat and go to great restaurants, So, when I saw this online forum of chefs sharing their “red flags” you should look for that reveal a place is “low quality, I had to share. Now, most of the list are the things you could notice even Before you order anything . So as a public service I present the top 10 red flags you need to know before you go.
What to look for to know the restaurant is bad
Cheap utensils are not a good sign that the meal will be good
Being ignored by the host is a bad sign
Too many unfinished plates are a sign the food is not great and diners gave up on eating
If you can smell the seafood as you walk in the door, then it's not fresh
If the bread is not fresh then it shows you that if they can't get the bread right than they don't care or know anything
If the carpet or floors are dirty, you can be sure the kitchen is too.
A huge menu with lots of pictures means most of the items and ingredients are frozen and not fresh
Dirty restrooms and dirty floors equal dirty kitchens Pee ewwww
If the restaurant has a clean fish tank, than they probably have a clean kitchen, if not, than everything else is probably dirty too.
Bad smells are a sure sign that you need to turn and run out of the place as fast as your feet can carry you!

Every Massachusetts Restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives
Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, hosted by Guy Fieri on the Food Network, is one of the most popular shows for food lovers. There’s just something super entertaining about Fieri, and the show is so fun to watch. What’s extra cool is that Fieri has come to Massachusetts multiple times and picked local restaurants to highlight on the show.
We used TVFoodmaps.com and FlavortownUSA.com to seek out every restaurant in the Bay State that’s been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. While sadly a few of them have closed for good, most likely victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, Massachusetts still boasts over 30 locations that are mere driving distance away.
From Polish and Italian to places for brunch and seafood, the list criss-crosses Massachusetts with a number of local eateries just begging to be put on your mini road trip list.
