"What has caused people to bash it so bad?"

IMO, it is b/c their service is terrible...esp at the LSU location...

This always bothers me as well when they have to call it corn grits, I mean what other kind of grits could it possibly be?

I think places call it corn grits because it has kernels of corn mixed in rather than just grinded corn.

I think they call it corn grits to make it sound more interesting than it really is.

Well that too but I think we can all agree here that when places call their grits "corn grits", they're gonna have a bunch of whole corn kernels in it.

I usually get the club. It's hard for places like that to eff up a sandwich, so that's what I usually stick to.

That's what I used to get there (chicken club) because they served it on a croissant with blackened chicken, but they stopped serving it that way so I moved to their new Black Jack Chicken sandwich.
I think it's really good, and that's saying a lot for WalkOns.

Or it's because it has whole corn in it

the bar service is really bad at the walk-ons at LSU.. the girls are good looking but slow as molasses, if they even acknowledge you.

I got called out and embarrassed in my own thread on grits.

me

Yes they had whole corn kernels in the "corn grits", unlike my Quaker Oats instant grits packets that I have at home which I just call grits.

I guess now someone is gonna tell me that corn isn't a vegetable.

I thought the service was decent at Coursey, but I was disappointed in the lack of overall hotness in the waitstaff.

I've never had this issue and I go on the busiest night of the week for them most times. Of course, I go there fairly often and recognize most of the bartenders so I assume they recognize me as well.

I stand corrected, didn't know there was 2 in Baton Rouge. I don't think they are going to win a James beard award, but its not horrible. I had the hangover burger at the Lafayette one Friday and it was pretty good.
