Eat This And Be Kind!
Everyone knows I love a good burger – and this looks like a GREAT burger!
So why am I being warned to be nice after I eat it? Because the restaurant in Australia that makes it is trying to re-open after the worldwide pandemic, and worries that social media could kill their chances!
Now that restaurants are slowly re-opening, their message is a good one for us all!
My friend Ben sent me a story about The Milky Lane restaurant, where the owners are asking for some consideration as they re-open to the public. As you can see, they took to Twitter to spread the word, and this was the Daily Mail headline I read:
“Restaurant issues blunt warning to pompous influencers ‘smashing us with horrible reviews’ that they will cost people their JOBS – as it finally reopens after crippling COVID-19 shutdown”
The Milky Lane Restaurant chain, located throughout Australia, has been shutdown since March 23, and they are asking for time to get back in their “food groove” before social media influencers pounce.
The Milky Lane Owners have asked influencers to be kind with their reviews, stating:
“Don’t leave a horrible review, reach out so we can fix it.”
The chain known for its outlandish meals, and normally is a hit with Instagram and online lovers – but as they point out, jobs are on the line if they can’t recover their business – and I agree: we need to give all of our local restaurants a chance to get back on their feet – let’s take a “social media food review” break!
Here’s th entire story on The Daily Mail:
Let’s take another look at their food:
OK, it all looks supersized and full of flavor – everything they serve is designed to be “over the top” – and I’m all-in! In fact, one of the best burgers in Los Angeles looks like this:
Yes, Petit Trois on the iconic Ventura Boulevard serves their homage to the “Big Mac” – theirs is called the “Big Mec!”

I can’t wait to support all of LA’s best restaurant, big and small…like the legendary Astro Burger on Santa Monica Boulevard – AKA “Route 66”:
