“Students review-bomb Slo bar on Google Maps with negative reviews after they were politely asked to leave. According to Slo Bars post on Instagram – Among the 10 students – only two ordered drinks and they took up three tables.
This is not fair to the business. Please be mindful and considerate of other customers who might want to come in and make orders.
We’ve been to Slo Bar with Reel Bacolod Food (who made a reel for them showing the EXCELLENT food, especially the waffles!) and we loved our visit!”
