Grumpy White's voted Quincy's Best "Plan B" Restaurant for eleventh year in a row

For the eleventh year in a row, Grumpy White's has won Quincy's prestigious Best "Plan B" Restaurant Award, resulting in major disappointment from restaurants who were once thought to be a shoe-in to take the crown, such as the Goal Post, the Irish Pub, and Wendy's. But the statistics are in, and the facts don't lie; more people go to Grumpy White's than they do any other restaurant in Quincy, although statistics also show that it is almost never their first choice.

"The food isn't bad," commented one diner, as she attempted to stir some life back into her mediocre stew. "Don't get me wrong, I'd always rather go to a better restaurant, like the Fat Cat, or even the Fours. But sometimes those places just have too long of a wait, and I have to settle for something like this."

"I've been coming here for twenty-five years," remarked Val Vickson, 23, of Germantown. "And I've never had a bad meal. Then again, I've never had a really amazing meal either. So, yeah, I guess I can see it."

So what is it about Grumpy White's that makes it most people's "plan b" restaurant? Some say it's the pleasant, sexually arousing wait staff, or even the diverse beer selection, which includes over three domestics, as well as exotic beers, such as Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Others say it's the aesthetically pleasing cranberry-colored seating booths, reminiscent of the interior trim of a 1985 Buick Riviera. But those who don't like surprises say it's most likely the fact that their vegetable of the day hasn't changed from corn since the last United States Army draft.

Too bad the clams for that chowder are collected just off the coast of Germantown by OC addicts.
