A: It's a little unnatural because the sentence implies there's a greasy spoon available for use ("that greasy spoon") and eating with it puts you off (present tense).

It is more likely that the thought of eating with any greasy spoon would put you off. That puts everything in the future tense.

I think the phrase 'greasy spoon' might be too specific, unless there actually is a greasy spoon in front of you and that's what you are talking about.

Dirty utensils are gross in general, right?
