BAD experience at Restaurant in Medford!

Original post from from Wednesday, July 2, 2008:

I learned a disturbing incident last night at the Suffolk County Celiac Support Group meeting...

A fellow Celiac went to KINGS BUFFET, at 3251 Horseblock Road, in Medford recently with her husband and daughter. She was aware that she could not eat anything there, but because her daughter (who is 8) really wanted to go, they decided to go, and Mom would "sit" there to be with them while they enjoyed the meal. When they walked in, they explained that there would be 1 adult, and 1 child eating, and that the Mom would NOT be eating, and that it was because she COULDN'T eat anything, and the manager/owner (?) refused to let her in. When the Mom explained that she had Celiac Disease, and that she would get very sick if she ate anything there, and to "trust her" she was NOT eating there, and not trying to "gain free entry to eat", the woman still refused to let her in, and told her she had to sit outside and wait for them.

So pass the word around to your friends, Celiacs or not, to not patron KINGS BUFFET in Medford.
