Get Em N Go.

21 posts in this topic

I was home visiting last March and felt the uncontrolable urge for a 1/4pound olive burger and some super-soggy fries. Unbeknownst to me, the Plainfield Get Em N Go had been SHUT DOWN! Now... i thought this was just the case with that one, but now I'm hearing that the whole chain might have closed???

IS THIS TRUE?!?!?!!!

For my money, nothing could beat the greasy speldor of a Mr. Fables "Fab" with a side of batter-dipped onion rings...Oooooohhhh, my arteries...

From what I understand, the local Weddy's franchise owner bought up the chain and the name to kill the competition.

I thought the one off east paris, and the one off 36th at division were still open?

It was my understanding all of them were gone... I thought it was because of health code issues, but i don't know that for sure.

I know that if you get inspected and you fail a critical the place goes on "lock down," and they place this nice bright sticker on entraces saying: "The food here is bad, we found the workers cooking without good temps, rat dropings, other various bodily fluids. Go to Mickey D's or something!" The one on Division and 36 had a nice bright red sticker on it. :dontknow:

it's a Flint Chain. They make e'm really greasy and dripping with cholesterol, just how we michiganders like it! All the of the restaurants look like churches and they're usually pretty ghetto.

Want an experience you won't forget? Downtown Flint, Saginaw Street at night... Halo Burger. I have some pretty weird stories about that place.

They make a great Olive Burger, but nothing compared to Get Em N Go.

I especially miss GnG's soggy-soggy french fries. Everyone in Japan likes 'em crispy.... wtf.

Halo Burger has two locations specified as Birthday Locations. Do kids REALLY have their birthday parties there?

Well, I guess I probably would.

If you get an inspection, and get criticals in Kent County. They give you an inspection report and you get one week to fix it. They'll do a one week follow up. If you repeatedly fail criticals you have to go before a compliance panel. If the county shuts you down, you've either A. thru gross neglegance and mismanagement, deserve to get shut down because you are putting the public at risk. Or B. Really pissed off your health inspector. To get shut down It can take weeks. Unless the place is in a serious unsanitary state.

Critical health violations can range from employees not wearing gloves, to not having proper functioning equipment, or even putting chemicals to close to food. So it's always hard to tell what a place is shut down for so many things can come into play.

HALO burger is not on the same level as the RACE DAY SPECIAL.

Those of you who have experienced the RACE DAY SPECIAL know what I'm talking about.
