This looks as bad as the food served inside this restaurant. I had to add an outlet in the kitchen, and when I was done they asked if I wanted breakfast on the house. After seeing that kitchen, NO THANKS!!! There are no bollards protecting this, and it has been hit at least once. Also love the downspout.

Make you wonder....

I know it sounds crazy, but if I see some unqualified electrical work outside a restaurant, I may not want to eat there. To me it's just a sign that the business owner may take shortcuts to make bigger profits. And if he's doing this on paint, plumbing, or electrical work, what kind of shortcuts is he taking when it comes to food preparation?

I have done work in a fair share of restaurants, and I always say the same thing:
"I'll never eat at that place." But guess what? I end up eating there. [Linked Image]

John: Did you stick around long enough to figure out where those two cables go?

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that service is hideous. Are those set screw connectors on the SER cable????

I got to admit, I yook these pics several months ago, before I found somewhere to show them [Linked Image] . I can't remember where the wires go, I think they either enter the soffit, or wrap around the building to get to the panels.
