Everyone Working There Is SickA 2015 study from the Center for Research and Public Policy for Alchemy Systems found that over half of restaurant workers (51%) "frequently" or "always" work when they are sick. Which means they are infecting everything you eat with their gross germs. Why? For one, most restaurant workers don't get paid sick days. If they don't show up, they lose out on wages. Beyond that, the study found that many said they come in while sick because they don't want to let their team down. You, on the other hand, they're less concerned about.
It's Not Called the OLD Spaghetti Factory for NothingReddit user koma0029 filled us in on Old Spaghetti Factory's secret recipe for Vesuvius, the chain's signature spicy pasta dish.

Stadium Nachos: Ruined ForeverWhile it's not a restaurant per se, a sports stadium might as well be considered a fast food chain. One user who worked at an unnamed stadium clued us in that one of their first tasks for the day was to "open up all the containers of nacho cheese and scoop out any mold.

Get an Extra Dosage of Iron at Every Cheesecake FactoryIf you ever feel like you need a low grade blood transfer, a Reddit user in Texas says all you need to do is order some bread at the Cheesecake Factory. Apparently it's often cut while the prep cooks hold it with their bare hands. According to this Texan, "many fingers were lacerated."
