    Not delicious

    How would I decribe a food that is not delicious? Could I say "The food is horrible? How do american people usually say this? Thanks.

    What is the antonym of delicious? Liver.

    OK. In all seriousness, what about?

    -It's gross. <informal>
    -It's yucky. <kids>

    Here's a site that poses the same question. The answers aren't helpful, but they're kind of funny. ;-D

    The question:
    "My question, which may or may not be stupid, is: What is the antonym of delicious? It can't have a prefix, like "inedible." "Inedible" isn't the antonym anyway, but you get my meaning. So, I repeat: what's the antonym of delicious? I honestly don't know."

    How about my example? Is it wrong?

    Nope. It's perfect.

    Pat: How's your steak?
    Sam: It's horrible. (That is, it tastes horrible.)

    All the best.
