My family and I have eaten at Newk’s countless times over the past few years, but our last 5 visits have been awful. Not sure what has happened but obviously it’s under different management. The customer service is very poor. The bathrooms need
Cleaning. And the food is nothing like it once was.
Sad to say “ we will not be back”!

l live in Hernando.Ms, and ordered take-out from the Newks in Southaven. This evening I
ordered a Roast Beef sandwich. Once back home, I opened the take out container,
then took a bite out of the sandwich, and thought it tasted different. Upon opening
the sandwich, I saw 2 very small pieces of beef and was surpised, then a bit angry
that I paid a lot for a tiny portion of beef, and lots of the filler items. I called up Newks,
ask to speak to the manager. After explaining the problem, he (Tyler) said to me-
well what do you want me to do about it , in a harsh tone, which pissed me off. I said
I would drive back up to Hernando,and he can make another sandwich. I drove back up
the Newks, and waited a short time for Tyler to come out. He did and he was very
short and in manner with me, which really pissed me off. No hello, no handshake,
no we are sorry for the problem. He did give me a free piece of cake, which I asked
for, to compensate for same of my time, & gas to go back and forth again, but I still
felt pissed off. I have been a long time customer, and I felt I was given the bums ‘rush
when I left, because I felt that they could not care less about my business.

I wish that I was writing a nice note to you about Newks because I love your food and have given Newks quite a bit of business. However, the agency that I work for had a terrible experience and wanted to tell you. I am the office manager for a non-profit–Hope Ministries– in Baton Rouge, LA. I went online and was excited to use the “Group Order” option. I sent the link to my group and everyone ordered their favorite meal. However, when I went to finalize my order, the website would not let me give a time to pick up the order……So, I called it in. I spent time calling and speaking with two different people about my group order (it was only 7 entrees). When it was time for the order to be picked up, our President/CEO went to Newks on Corporate to pick up the order. She paid for the order and left. When she arrived at her board of director’s meeting she realized that the order had not been fulfilled properly. She was missing three meals. She had to go all they way back to Newk’s to pick up the missing three meals…..the WORST part of this story is that NOT ONE EMPLOYEE APOLOGIZED TO HER or ME (I called in to tell them to have the missed meals ready upon pick up). And….the employee that helped her when the CEO re-arrived was RUDE to her. Not acceptable. Our last staff meeting, we ordered a large specialty tray from NEWKS. After this experience, we will most likely choose a more local option. Thank you for listening.

We have visited this establishment repeatedly. On our most recent visit we observed as a result of finding hair in our meal that no one in the kitchen protected their hair with a hairnet, a hat does not prevent hair from falling into the food but they did not wear a hat either.

We further noted that most of the staff had long hair, and once they removed gloves to serve the meal they would subconsciously touch their hair or faces whilst serving the meal. For the sake of preserving proper hygiene all staff should wear hairnets.

That is an unacceptable practice in terms of personal hygiene.
