Col's Family Resturant's Tuna Melt Sandwhich with French Fries is a puny sandwhich. It's bread gets lightly toasted to perfection but there are a few inperfections that should be mentioned in the way it gets prepared. For example the toast gets toasted on only 1 side of the bread, the flavorful swiss cheese is not melted enough even though it is a grand surprise to have swiss instead of cheddar, the cheese tastes great and complements the sandwhich quite nicely, but in the end the biggest inprefection I tasted was that the Tuna spread was cold and seemed like it was just smashed between two pieces of toast and cheese. Now for the French Fries... they were dense like they were undercooked but they were hot and tastey. What won me over was not the food, or the cooking staff; What won me over was the serving staff. The servers seemed more dense then their chocolate cake, and a little rushed when there was barely anyone in the room; but my server was kind and courteous, especially when I went to the table behind me to grab some ketchup and there was none to be found. My server handed me a cold ketchup out of the freezer when she saw what I was looking for, but I found this odd because none of the tables had filled ketchup bottles when they're a "Family restaurant" or as other people in America would say "it's a diner" which most diners are known for endless bottles of ketchup and mustard. *
*EDIT/ More Details: As you can see the pickles are actual pickles and not false pickles like how people sometimes pickle cucumbers and claim they are pickles because they are pickled. Pickles are a actual fruit (fruits have seeds that look like this, kind of like how tomatoes are a fruit, or how a apple is a fruit) that is planted into the ground and you can find them at a grocery store. The pickles had a nice vinegar and dill aroma that was not to strong to the taste buds or the olfactory sensors and was quite enjoyable. The tuna spread as I mentioned earlier was cold and that is a put off but it did have a certain je ne sais quois to it. I don't know if it was the fresh celery, the mayonnaise they use, or the tuna but who am I kidding; the tuna had so much mayonnaise that you could barely taste it. I am giving this sandwich 2 out of 6, the service was a 4 out of 6; which translates to Average for the experience I acquired while I was there.
