I'm sorry to say it but this place has really gone down hill over the years. I used to eat here all the time and loved it...the food was great, generous portions and friendly people. Unfortunately, none of that can be truthfully claimed today. I actually had not eaten here in about 2-3 years after a very poor customer service experience last time we went in there to dine in but last night I decided to give them another chance so my daughter and I went in to get some take out. When we arrived, we were the only ones at the front counter. We had to wait several mins to place our order while the two employees who were "working" at the time carried out a personal conversation between themselves. One of them glanced over at us several times so I know they knew we were there. On about the 4th or 5th glance over I raised my eyebrows to which the woman responded by raising her index finger at me and said..."Yeah, Just a Min!" and then continued with their conversation for another min or so. By this time a group of other people had filed in line behind us.<br /> <br /> I ordered a pulled pork sandwich combo. There were two choices for this combo. Either a Sandwich, 1 side, and a drink ... Or ... a Sandwich and choice of 2 sides. In the past I always got the sandwich, side and a drink but this time I had a drink in the car so I opted for the sandwich and 2 sides and told the lady that I wanted both sides to be fries.<br /> <br /> When I got home and opened my order what I found was more than a little disappointing. My "Jumbo" sandwich had approximately 1/3 the meat that they used to put on the sandwiches and it had been smashed together to the point that it literally looked as if someone had sat on it. My TWO orders of fries was about 1/2 the amount of fries that I normally received when ordering only 1 side. Although I guess the amount a fries that I received really didn't matter in this case since the fries had been so grossly over cooked. This would have a clear to anyone at a glance given the very dark brown burnt color of them.<br /> <br /> The last bad experience with this place kept me away for 2-3 years. After this complete failure on their part I am sad to say that I will have to permanently remove Demo's from my list of places to eat out. I guess nothing good last forever...:(
