WHY WE LOVE HOLE IN THE WALL SPOTS TO EAT
- Freshly cooked food that gets served piping hot to your table (or to-go box)
- Typically friendly customer service
- Large portions of food
- The food tastes GOOD
There’s an expression that says, “The food was so good, they put their foot in it!” Whoever came up with that may have had a foot fetish, or they may have just tasted a meal that was hands-down one of the best they’ve tried.
