Dishes That Gross Restaurant Workers Out

A great restaurant server brings a customer what they want, even if they secretly know that what the customer wants is kind of gross. A recent Reddit thread put the spotlight on orders that some servers might call questionable. Next time a server winces when you order the soup, maybe take that as a sign you should ask what they'd have.

Anything that isn't what the restaurant specializes in

Forever-warm soup


Ranch dressing

General Tso's chicken

Any drink with fruit in it

Blue steak

Adding good booze to soda

Ice, ice (baby)

Extra mayo


Spicy yellowtail

Sour cream
