Go buy limes at the store and see for yourself

As a restaurant owner I've gotta say the places subbing in lemons or raising prices are ridiculous . Every few months a produce item skyrockets and every time owners freak out. I would never deprive my customers of an item that is a integral to a drink or dish . Lemon is not a food substitute . Like prices are already falling , still more then double the norm. Only change we made is only giving limes if asked and using a slightly smaller lime. Raising prices on a high margin drink is ridiculous

Limes are expensive, they aren't free magical balls that fall into your drink.
