Gordon pointed at a patch of mismatched paint on one of the walls. While the majority of the walls inside the restaurant were painted a light shade of gray, there was a random patch of white near some of the tables and windows.

Jorge jokingly asked if Gordon liked it. To that, Gordon responded by saying, “It looks f***ing stupid! The drive coming in this course is beautiful… to this dreary funeral home!”

In other words, golfers who are driving up to the restaurant are expecting an upscale dining experience, yet they end up facing a significant let-down once they’re inside.
