Holy Roller: Nice Legs, Shame About the Face

Yes, that’s a 1979 song by The Monks, and, exactly how I feel about Holy Roller.

I’ve eaten there three times, and not once did I pat my belly and say, “Hot damn, that was good.” Every single time I left, I left shaking my head.

So, I give up, but that being said, it’s still a good place to have a drink and take in the sights of the room, because those things are still enjoyable.

Listen to my review of Holy Roller here, or read the web article here.
