This place is not the best, & the owner wow what a baby. The way he runs this business is just sad. I stated I had some negative experiences & he "bashed" me on his personal FB.
"We were recommended to do a catering job but there is somebody by the name of Carlos Diego Martinez hateing non-Sonchos of course he pulled out the bitch card I can't even tell who he is dude dude looks like a chick never even seen the guy before come to Sonchos straight hater sinse you wanna speak your mind!!!!!funny stuff he gave casa Bonita in Denver 5 stars.. LoL!!!!"
really this is the kind of people I'm suppossed to support?
This place has an awesome drink menu and wonderful tapas. It's nice to have a local family owned business in a sea of boring corporate restaurants.
Great atmosphere and even better coffee. Now if we can get another batch of two Africas from Switchback next door.
Disgusting kitchen! I really liked the pizza the first few times we ate there. The last time my family ate there will be the last and here's why.... We went in and got a table for six of us in the small dining area so it's hard to miss us. We ordered pizza and got our drinks and then we waited, and waited and waited. 45 minutes later after 8-10 customers had come in and got their take out orders we went to the counter and asked what was taking so long to find out they had lost our order even though we were the only customers sitting in the dining area. They re-did our order and promised to give us free dessert to make up for it. In the meantime my Granddaughter had to use the bathroom so they let my wife escort her through the kitchen. The kitchen was filthy and the back door was open letting in a lot of flies. The flies were everywhere. When she came back from the bathroom our pizza was there and we were already eating over an hour after we ordered or I would have left and demanded our money back after hearing about the kitchen filth. We never got our free dessert though we wouldn't have eaten it. No apology from management; they blamed everything on having been busy earlier and having several new employees.
I will never eat there again. The margaritas are weak, taste like virgin margaritas.
The service was good and I am a fan of beef Fajitas, I like steak fajitas where you have strips of steak, the steak in their fajitas are all shriveled up and dry. Worst beef fajitas I have ever had! Do not ever eat at Pueblo Viejo on Stetson Hills, save your money and save your self from a big
So ridiculously filthy, I couldn't believe it. They did appear to be understaffed, but the people working were in no hurry at all and seemed to be moving in slow motion. I will never go there again and would never ever recommend it. Even the counter where they give you your food looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. Disgusting.
So this is not my first trip to Heart of J or my first time to this particular Heart of J. In the past I've ranted and raved about the food and the service but no more. The hummus and baba ghanoush didn't taste as good as what you can get from the grocery store. I'm a creature of habit, once I find something I like at a place it's hard to get me to change. I always get the lamb shawarma and it's always great but not this time. I'm not even sure what was on it was lamb the cucumber sauce seemed to have been replaced with mayo, the flat bread for dipping was hard as a rock. Lastly I always make it a point to get Turkish Coffee and even this was a major disappointment, watery, little taste and all grounds. Over the past 6 months or so I've been here at least 8 or 9 times and I live in Parker, never again. Very disappointed!
There's a bartender named Laken, she's pretty awesome and liberal w the drinks. But also a tease in a good way
Went to the new location on North Tejon for a Saturday evening dinner. The food was tasty and the servers were well-informed and attentive.
Lots of real flavors, interesting combinations, and suitable portion sizes for the price ($9-$23). Our group liberally shared a representative set of dishes, thus I was able to find several things that I would partake of on my next visit. I chose the pan seared duck, which was perfectly cooked and well paired with the sweet potato/parsnip puree. The desserts were also rich and delicious.
My only complaints concern breaking in the new location. The dim interior made the miniscule text on the 1-page menu VERY difficult to read, and you'll have to raise your voice to have a conversation in the somewhat noisy dining area. Nevertheless, this is a place worth re-visiting.
Cool little hangout! Great coffee and staff. Very friendly. Cool Friday running "club". Reduced priced coffee after a run...not too shabby!
Very BAD service. Pre paid for the food deal (one slice,knots and drink). Waited about 30 minutes, then checked up with what was taking so long and they said just a few more minutes. 20 minutes later they said my order didn't exist. Asked for refund and they gave me a hard time. I left and counted my change the lady short changed me, so I went back in and she said that I had to pay for the drink cup! I asked to speak with the manager and he was very rude yelling at me in front of the customers! NEVER coming here again.
Side Note: Other people orders were also "Non existent". Very Disappointing.
Been here once before and had luke warm re heated pizza, not good.
Fresh, clean, efficient, and cheerful. Reasonably cold beer, healthy salads, and pizzas that deliver taste by delicacy rather than heaps of stuff that will give you a stomach attack.
The pizza is cold. Sits out for hours,the salad bar is not kept cold enough BEWARE the pasta salad and potato salad is used over and over,the place is dirty!!!
GREAT place for Single girlz!!
A very nice place.....
Oh and their is a "RUB & TUG" place right next door.
Went to the location in University Village. Very good lasagna, however the wood oven pizza was only average, as the toppings just did not have enough flavor and the crust wasn't quite right. $28 for a two person lunch is also on the high side.
This place is a joke.. The cooks do not know whar there doing.. the chef is a discusting.. i order two different times there.. first i ordered a club sandwich.. witch was very discusting the Turkey that was in the sandwich had a weird distinct color and a smell. And the veggies are discusting had to trow it away.. and second is there California Burger. The chicken was raw.. i will never again eat there or even suggest that place to any one..
Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.
Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.
Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.
Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.
Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.
In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.
Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.
I just moved here from the Midwest and I have to say maybe it does not rate with the high end pizza places like Giordanos or Lou Malnatis but for the value, the stuffed pizza is very, very good. I could not stop eating this so I ate even when I was full! Another sign of this pizza being excellent? when I had it for leftovers the next few days and warmed in my oven (do not use microwave!!) it even tasted better! I am so glad I found this place! Now I need to test the Roast beefs (i love the hot giardenaires they offer).
Art the pizza snob from Chgoland.
