    I take it that the Sioux Chef is in charge of the Buffalo Wings.

    Does this mean the ad was placed in Sioux City?

    Reading menus and spotting typos is kind of a hobby of mine and whenever I got out to eat with my brother, we bust a gut laughing over it. :lol:

    What would happen if you had a Sioux Chef and a Sous Chief both apply?

    I suppose this restaurant only accepts people with reservations.

    Menu items could include Shrimp Cree-ole or Osage sausages on Walla Walla Challah served with a side of Chickasaw slaw and Squamish squash chips.

    And I'll bet the applicant is supposed to make a great General Custer custard.

    The meal would end with Mojave java.

    But I would never go to the place.

    I hate Italian food. :beer:

    This thread reminds me of the sign I saw on a falafel cart..."We Have the Tastiest Balls in Town" :suprise: :look:

    Seen on menu last week... I'm not kidding:

    Bread Pudding laced with pecans and served with Cream-On Glaze.
    I assume they meant Creme Anglaise... I hope!

    Spelling is one of my pet peeves, I am always correcting misspelled stuff. Or how about this, people who mispronounce words. I know a server who pronounces syrup as surp. It absolutely drives me nuts when she does it. Then of course , there is the people who some how work an r into wash, usually as "warsh".

    And one of my pet peeves is people who are not grammatically correct in their verb usage. "There is" should be "There are".
