Dear Moe's Southwest Grill:

Please stop yelling at me when I go into your restaurants. It makes me uncomfortable.


Thanks.

No it's fucking not? You spic beaners don't yell "welcome to Taco Bell" or "welcome to chipotle" or "welcome to qdoba" or "welcome to Wendy's"



Fuck your culture even if you do.

It's annoying. Knock that shit off

I went in that place one time and hated that so much I never went back. To be fair, it kind of sucked aside from that so I probably wouldn't have gone back anyway.

No. YOU knock YOUR shit off.

There are OTHER meanings and inferences to the word "culture" BEYOND those of racial, national or in this case ethnic derivation. It's part of Moe's CORPORATE culture to yell an obnoxious fucking greeting at their recently arrived customers.

You know, I hadn't thought about it until I sa this post. I go to Baja Fresh and Chipolte all the time but haven't been back to MOe's since I tried it about 3 years ago. It just dawned on me that I disliked being yelled at when I went there so I've never gone back.

Do what I do. Walk in the door yelling "Welcome to Moe's" as loud as possible before they have the chance to yell it themselves. It's always good for a laugh.

Thank you for starting this thread, as I could not agree more. Whoever came up with this strategy is a fucking moron, for exactly the reason stated. I do not want people to scream at me, I just want a burrito.

Potbelly used to do something similar when you ordered a milkshake, apparently they have since wisened up.

I avoid places that try to be all cutesy and manufacture a fun atmosphere, because quite frankly it is not cute or fun and is hugely gay. Im going to start yelling back I think.

You know, mang...I will NEVER understand NOVA.

This is the land of choices, mang. It's not like Moe's is the only fucking place within 50 miles to get a burrito. If you don't like being yelled at when you walk in the door...fine. You have many, many other choices to buy a burrito from.

Here's the thing...complaining about it on a "blog" like this, mang? Ain't gonna' change shit, holmes...

I feel sorry in a way for the employees being forced into such stupidity by their corporate minions. They are the ones that have to do this each and everyday, and while it might keep them on their toes, they are being forced to act in a way that they probably wouldn't want to.

As for the record, I wish Moe's would get rid of this, as its annoying and a guaranteed appetite killer.

Agreed. It's saddening to see a bunch of hard working people do a job they don't want to do in the first place, just to make a shitty lower class living by slopping rice and beans into a tortilla.

But to repeatedly make them do something which is uncomfortable by human nature, is even worse.

Somewhere in their corporate office is an asshole who's thinking "i cant believe they actually do it"

This comes from school spirit-school songs and all of that.

FCPS graduates are lucky to get any job, including this one.

Jack Dale probably eats in there when he is feeling nostalgic.

Karen Garza eats in there because it reminds her of Texas.

Tammy Kaufax and Ryan McElveen are hoping they'll put in turf.

Wow! I thought I was the only one who didn't go there because of the obnoxious greeting. Never in my life did I imagine others disliked it as much as I do.

OMG, please stop your whining. It is not slavery, they are just greeting a customer. If they don't want to do it they are free to work elsewhere. If you don't like it, shut up and don't go there.

Do a google search with terms like, "yelled at Moe's" and you'll find thousands of people fucking hate it.

Thousands? I would rather look at the success the company has had rather than a few idiots who don't like to be greeted. Currently Moe's has 460 locations and plans to grow to 850 by 2015. Average sales for stores open more than 3 years is over $1,100,000. Not bad.

I certainly avoid the place for that reason. I'm sure the annoyed people add up to a significant loss of sales. Probably a much greater number than go there because they like to be yelled at.

I go there because I like having a burrito with cucumber, bacon, and cheese sauce. Also, chips and free salsa are pretty awesome. Similar to Baja

The yelling is super annoying, but I deal with it for the bacon


The only thing that bothers me is how their menu sucks. What's the difference between their Homewrecker and Joey Bag Of Donuts when the
Staff always ask you which ingredients you want every time, similar to chipotle?

The menu is confusing and abstract with little bearing on what you actually get at the register.


In the end I will continue going, not because I like being yelled at. But because I love bacon and cheese.


Bacon.

Firehouse Subs yells Welcome to Firehouse. I dont think the employees like yelling it anymore than the customers like hearing it.

Holy fuck...this! Nobody EVER gets out of that joint without being asked if they want guac on everything they've ordered for the quick and easy upsell.

What is the fucking point of having menu items that do NOT include guac and then ASKING your customers if they want guac? They've ALREADY told you they don't want guac because they ordered items without it! Or is this the employees' way of admitting their own menu is confusing and they don't want customers missing the nuances?

This is the ONLY restaurant that I frequently go to where I spend time at my desk reviewing their menu online and then WRITING down my order before I walk out the door so that when I get there I can just walk up to the make line and make my order like a Moe's jihadist. Hell, I'm half tempted to say, "Tell you what there, Julio...gimme' a pork burrito with black beans, onions, peppers, 'shrooms, mild salsa, corn salsa, and sour cream...hold the Moe's lingo, eh?"

It's food. It shouldn't be this fucking complicated...
