I have been enjoying a weekly meal at La Zingara since they opened. I'm not sure what Monika's problem is, but it certainly sounds like she has a vendetta. I grew up on Italian cuisine on the south side of Chicago, and I have been very happy with La Zingara. I don't know who put the bee under your bonnet Monika, but I certainly don't think your review was fair or accurate. If you get bored with creating lame reviews, maybe you could switch occupations... a "butcher" possibly.

I had heard this place had super fresh fish with an Elvis twist so I checked it out at lunch today. I just had a Rainbow Roll, not all you can eat. The fish was indeed very fresh and it was topped with sweet tobiko. All was fine until I went to pay the bill. Instead of being charged $10.95 as on the menu, I was told the price was $12.95 because of the new computer cash register. I asked why the menu was a different price and was told "all prices have gone up but they don't have a new menu yet." They insisted on charging me a price 20% higher than advertised. Isn’t there a law or something about price switching? Anyway, I will never go there again and am telling everyone I know not to either.
Wow. Fantastic, friendly service. Great quality meats. My fave sub shop! A lot of sandwich for the price. The type of subs you get in New England are so hard to find anywhere else. I am so happy to have found this place! Highly recommend!
Always striving to improve our food and service at Folie a’ Deux, after Matthew’s review, we took several of his comments to heart. We agree with his review regarding spicy foods, and personally love eating spicy Cajun, Southwest and Texas foods; however, in response to our customer feedback, we “toned down” some of our spicier sauces and sides. As ever, our goal is to provide exceptional dining experiences for our regular and new customers, and we welcome all feedback from our guests.
I can't believe you didn't review Marigold's burger! Truly the best burger in town.
Blame it on construction? Meh, P.F.Chang's concept Pei Wei seems to rock out with their...well, the'yre busy every day for lunch and pretty steady at dinner. Seems like every business over there is busy INCLUDING Broadway Deli. Heck, we opened our shop just down the street, right in front of the construction and it's amazing how much traffic comesthrough that shopping center in spite of the construction. It's a shame they are turning tail because they had some awesome food and decent prices. They seem to get the Deli concept too. For this area that's saying alot.
Thanks for writing. Check here for our thoughts on Drifter's Hamburgers, written after the original story ran.
I can't believe Drifters and Kwik Inn weren't on their list of top burgers in the area.
Smoky Red Pepper Hummus
This recipe makes an attractive, chunky hummus with a nice finish.
* 1 cup cooked garbanzo beans
* 1 clove of garlic
* 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
* ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt
* 1/8 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1/3 cup minced red pepper
Allow the flavors to blend overnight. This is especially tasty with raw veggies, nan, or unsalted tortilla chips.

I'm a veghead now, for so many reasons. But when I was eating animals, Smashburger was one of the best burgers I ever had, not even on the list here.
How are we supposed to trust your choices when the best fast but local burger you can find is, by your own admission, inedible?
Drifters is too far north for the Indy staff. I see the readers pick is the only thing that pulled them, reluctantly, north of Uintah...
Of course, they were willing to go 50 miles south.
A PDF, Indy? Really?
What about Tony's or Phantom Canyon? What other locations were visited? We are trying to find the list. Anyone know?
Patty Jewett...great burgers, awesome view!
We have eaten here twice in the last couple of weeks and have enjoyed the good food and excellent service. It beats going to the chain restaurants that are on Garden of the Gods.
Best LOCAL burger hands down is DRIFTERS.
and not even a mention?
It's too bad they dropped the tapas idea. Downtown could use a good place like that.
I live in the Stetson Hills hood and went there this past December after it opened. I wanted lunch and beer. After just looking at the menu, there was nothing that made me want to eat there. The bartender was attentive, short tap beer list. I asked her when was Happy Hour, figuring I could make it a nice spot to stop one the way home sometimes since, it is about 4 blocks from the house. She couldn't and did not bother to find out for me. What really ticked me was that there was some guy walking around who seemed to be a manager or owner talking to a few people, probably his friends who came in. He never approached me and my partner and said hi, or welcome in, is it your first time here. We were ignored - and the place was not packed. I know if I was the manager of a new "neighboorhood" bar, I would greet everyone who came in for the first few months, ask if they lived by and welcome them, etc.
So, I won't go back to this new "neighborhood" bar. I'll stick with Fox and Hound and Rock Bottom or this place called my very own bar in my very own house.
Have you actually eaten there??? My best friend and I went for her bday and it was fabulous. We walked in unknowingly during happy hour which means they have food and beverage discounts (including half bottles of wine.......) I also had a living social coupon which they actually let me use! Our bill totaled about 40 dollars after it was all said and done. This included sharing an appetizer and their delicious goat cheese salad (it was big enough to order just one) two entrees, dessert and a bottle of wine. It was all very delicious and the spices and textures of the entrees peerfectly complemented each other (I had the seafood diablo and am hoping it's a keeper!). Soooo Old Crank let me know how your venture to overhauled target goes and you tell me what you can come up with for 40 bucks. I know it wont match the talent I experienced from them that day.
