They have best food EVER!!

I have realized that when I hear that sentence, I must, before I get excited, find out whether the person who said it really understands food.

Recently I was told that there is an amazing new Irish Pub that serves authentic Irish food. They told me the food was awesome. So, excited to taste some authentic Irish yummy goodness, I went to this amazing place. The environment was ok. Clean and comfy. I am seated and open my menu to find... "Irish nachos" - nachos with cheese - "Shamrock wings" - buffalo wings "Celtic stew" - veggie soup "Leprechaun steak" - steak.......... You get the point.

What type of qualifying questions could I ask someone that would clarify that they have any real food knowledge?
