    It never arrived. Quit trying to turn everything into a racial debate.

    Sad, but no one answered the OP's query.
    I give the waitstaff two walkbys. If they haven't acknowledged my presence, i'm gone. Just a "i'll be right with you" lets me know they at least know i exist.

    Stopped at the J in thousand Palms on Thursday on my way home, across the street had a choice of Denny’s or the goodys café. I chose the café and was not disappointed.

    After 40+ years eating in restaurants out here I have a very keen sense of whether or not the service/food quality is up to par.
    Condition of restrooms
    Tables not bussed
    Number/type of customers.
    Number/type of servers.
    Appearance of cooks
    How fast food comes up on the warmers, how quickly it gets picked up by the srrver

    I set a timer on my phone. If I don't get greeted within 5 minutes/ order taken within a few minutes more they are on probation. Timing on drink /salad another indicator.
    Many ways to see if the organization is competent.
    Have walked out many times leaving enough money for the drink so I don't get accused of theft, which is extremely unlikely.

    Racism is bad.

    Beating up an old wearing a red hat is good.

    Two legs bad.

    Four legs good.
