ok, maybe I ordered the wrong food. Maybe I was in the wrong location. But the food was nothing to rave about. Was I missing something? I am not sure. It tasted ok but average. tip: Still the food was ok and you shouldn't hesitate to ask for a doggy bag when you can't finish what you ordered.They have containers... More
