Restaurant Servers Describe The Most Awful Food Requests They’ve Ever Had

List RulesVote up the most disgusting food requests.

Anyone who's ever worked in the service industry has some tales to tell about customer interactions - from the grotesque to the outright rude or illegal. Server horror stories are in a league of their own, since they deal with the food people purposely choose to put into their bodies.

Some restaurant server stories involve the food they have to serve to customers that they advise everyone avoid at all costs. These stories are about just the opposite experience. Wait staff took to Reddit to describe the requests they received from customers that made their stomachs churn.

    My sister worked for Carl's Jr. Every day a lady would ask that her burger be dipped into the grease trap.

    Cheesecake With Onion And Cilantro

    From a Redditor:

    I have worked in restaurants my whole life and have seen my share of odd requests. The one that I will always remember is when I had a gentleman order a slice of cheesecake with raw onion and cilantro on top. He devoured that sh*t. Grossed me out to the max.

    The Fat From A Piece Of Roast Beef Covered In Gravy

    From Redditor /u/Shottaz83:

    I used to work at a restaraunt. We had just finished making roast beef and cutting off all of the fat for the sandwiches. Our dishwasher at the time asked me to put all of the fat onto a dish and cover it in gravy. It was easily over 2 lbs of pure fat. He ate the entire plate... I was disgusted.

    Burgers Covered In Artificial Sweetener

    From Redditor /u/bacloldrum:

    Watched a kid and his dad order burgers at Bob Evans at 9 am and cover them in artificial sweeteners like Equal and Sweet'N Low. I mean, it's not even noon. At least have the decency [to] use real sugar.
