You’ve heard of Yelp right? It’s that user review website where anyone with WiFi can praise or protest a business, restaurant, hotel or university with a rating out of five stars. The best part? The descriptions, those digital snacks of wisdom (and/or complete crazy) where users can say almost anything they want. “But are they accurate?” you ask.
That’s where we come in. Introducing our newest feature, On The Button, in which we review your reviews in the spirit of journalism, hilarity and all things meta. Our first target? Yup, that bastion of mouse feces, curly fries and ice cream with hair in it (we have pics, trust): 1920 Commons, currently rated a 3/5 on Yelp. So come along, friends– all you’ve got to lose is your faith in all crowdsourced material!
Cindy L. is fair and balanced in her assessment of this campus staple:
It’s dorm food. I wouldn’t say it’s disgusting, but of course, it’s not gourmet either. [...] Pizza is alright. They have lots of variety. The drink machines are terrible. It always tastes like water. Service at times can be quite abrasive, but I’m starting to think this is a Philly thing. 3/5
Kimberly P. is of another opinion, however:
Worst. Campus. Food. Ever. Will. Puke. If. Eaten. Stay. Away. 1/5
Marissa R., always the optimist, says:
It’s good!!!! 5/5
Preach, Marissa R. 5/5
