Blake Shelton may want to stick to his singing career and leave his food and beverage endeavors behind – because his new restaurant has been slammed by unhappy fans who left vowing not to return!
In September 2017, Shelton opened his new restaurant, Ole Red, in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. He also plans to open another in Nashville, Tennessee sometime this year.
“For me, it’s as simple as, this is my home,” the country singer announced at the time of the Oklahoma unveiling.
Ole Red is reportedly inspired by Shelton’s third-chart hit, “Ol’ Red.” It’s a bar-restaurant and retail store with a “laid-back, fun-loving Southern Oklahoma lifestyle,” newsok.com reported.
The menu features Southern staples, like brisket nachos, chicken and waffles, pan fried meatloaf and a variety of burgers. But some fans had choice words for the Oklahoma eatery and broadcasted them all over the eatery’s Facebook page.
One user gave Shelton’s restaurant 2 out of five stars on the social networking site for poor service.
“Sooooo disappointed,” she wrote. “Probably the worst service I have ever received in a restaurant. We were seated for 10 minutes before our drink order was even taken.”
The user ended her bad review admitting she was “so sad and will not be back.”
Then another user explained she drove two and a half hours to make it to Shelton’s joint and it wasn’t worth it.
“Our service was poor and the food was not that good!” the Facebook user explained. “My niece and I ordered the meatloaf meal which the meatloaf was undercooked and the potatoes had so much seasoning in them we couldn’t eat them!”
Still a Shelton fan, though, the user added: “If Blake would have been there it would have made the trip worth it!”
Another customer left a 1-star review and got right to the point. “First off the service is crap!”
The commenter continued: “Food choices were very slim and pricey. When you get your receipt make sure you check it. The manager tried to explain it but it made absolutely no sense. The manager ended up taking a few things off to make it right though.”
Nonetheless, in December a woman who described herself as a “huge Blake Shelton fan” said she was “hoping” to be impressed.
“My daughter and I split the club sandwich and one of our slices of bread was the heel and the other slice was hard,” she wrote. “We got mac and cheese for the side and it was cold and mushy like it was cooked yesterday!”
Another unfortunate fan explained she traveled with a group “all the way from Missouri” to test it out, and left the restaurant with a bad stomach. “2 people ordered the onion burger and have had upset stomachs since about 1.5 hrs after eating and are still dealing with it.”
The discouraged fan continued, “McDonald serves a better burger – it was super thin and extremely dry. My fries were stone cold.”
