Online restaurant reviews can be harsh, but when one diner posted on Urban Spoon that the servers at the Atomic Grill needed to “show more skin,” the owners were not going leave that one alone.

“That sort of attitude is Cro-Magnon at best,” said owner Daniel McCawley.

But McCawley and his staff always try to please their customers, so they will be showing a lot of skin; potato skins.

Over Memorial Day weekend, the restaurant is offering a special on loaded potato skins. The proceeds from the special will benefit the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services (WVFRIS) program.

“I’m a husband and a father of a 12 year old girl,” McCawley said. “I have five sisters and it was just offensive.”

The post on Urban Spoon has been removed, but the grill’s owners hope the special educates people and shows the grill’s stance on the issue.

“If you have a minute, have some potato skins, try some fresh, local barbecue and give to a good cause. It’s important to us, it should be important to the community,” McCawley said.

The special runs May 24-26, and the restaurant will also have information available about WVFRISS and their work.
