Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Long waits. Pick up your beer as you go in and it will be warm by the time you get your food. Except for the brisket or pork sandwiches, everything is very salty. The meats, when good are great, but not always consistent. The sauces are rather tasteless...bring your own hot sauce to add some kick.

Re: “Couture's Bistro

My wife and I felt so strongly after last nights meal at this restaurant that we were swindled out of $120.00 I thought I should write a fair review of Couture's to warn others so they wont have the same poor experience by making the mistake of eating dinner at this establishment.
The decor of the restaurant is pretty good, the owner has taken what was a dry cleaners and put a considerable amount of $$ into the remodel resulting in a pleasant atmosphere in a cozy "French" restaurant. Wines are sold by the glass, the wine was the good part of the meal. My wife ordered a glass of Cabernet and I had a light white wine, both were very good. The waitress suggested we try the mussels with a white wine, garlic sauce and french fries on top. I took the bait and ordered....I have had better quality mussels frozen from Safeway. In fact I suspect these were frozen from a supermarket. Small, little meat inside, McDonalds serves better french fries. My wife oredered a "garden fresh" salad I ordered a Cesar. The Garden fresh again seemed like it came out of a bag from a grocery store....lettuce was slightly wilted and the special dressing had little flavor. Keep in mind so far we've racked up over $40.00 for our wine, crappy mussels and salad. My Cesar salad was OK....Cesar is supposed to be made with large romaine lettuce leaves, this was small pieces of standard lettuce head with a 1/2 boiled egg on top and mediocre Cesar dressing. Want a good Cesar - go to the Famous! Finally our main course, I mistakenly ordered the pork loin - $24.00 my wife ordered the "Filet Mignon" - $36.00. They offer risoto as a 3 course for $10.00 per plate, fortunately we didn't waste our money on the risotto, I saw it plated at other tables and it did not look appetizing. My pork loin had some type of cream sauce with it I suppose to try and mask the fact that it was tough and unfavorable. A poor cut of meat....I can make a far better pork loin at home. My wife's filet I don't believe was an actual Filet cut of meat...it could have been was sirloin. It was cut into two halves circles of beef, each about 1/2 inch thick. I suspect it was cut this way to mask the fact it was not filet mignon. It was mediocre at best. For $36.00 we could have had a decent steak at the famous down the street. Final check was $120.00 .......what a rip off. Take my advice, - BEWARE of this place, they serve poor quality food.

Re: “P.F. Chang's

Something happened to this place. They had a menu change that dumped some good dishes - such as lemon scallops - and generally lost the items that had the freshest tastes. Add medium/high prices in comparison with other Chinese food places in town and you have a recipe for mediocrity.

Re: “St. Mary's High School Grace Center

Excellent location for games of all kinds with views abound. Too bad the staff (the director) ruined my first time experience to this facility. Extremely disappointed when I found out this was own by my alma mater.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Beer is good but service usually really sucks. I avoid the overpriced food and the owner. I do like the diverse guest tap offerings but they too are overpriced. Have a couple cold Flos and go down the road to more friendly people.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity has great beers! and the guest taps are bar none. However, the owner is not a very great guy, I have seen him stumbling drunk in the bar harassing other patrons and kicking people out that have done no wrong. He will try to pick fights with others who aren't in 100% compliance with his philosophy on beer. I have brought a lot of friends here and have never been so disappointed in an owner and a business. I really LOVED this brewery but the lack of professionalism and poor service from the bar staff has stopped me from coming here.

Re: “Paravicini's Italian Bistro

With every year Paravicini's declines a little more. What a joy it used to be - now it is just going through the motions.

Re: “Paravicini's Italian Bistro

Call me spoiled by New York, but I never found a meal at Paravacini's to be any better than OK. Better than the chains, but pretty mediocre by the standards of real neighborhood italian joints.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Slow service. Bartender busy talking with friends. Not friendly unless you are a regular

Re: “Yarn Outlet

They DO have a large selection, but I have found the same yarns for lower prices in other stores. What they DON'T have is helpful, friendly employees. The older woman who was there when I was answered my questions with sarcastic comments and seemed to be resentful that I would even ask.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

The last two times I've been there, the food has been mediocre at best....and seems like fewer and fewer people patronizing the once famous Amanda's.

Re: “The Liberal Store

I really like this story, and have followed in through several locations. They are now on North Academy north of Union Blvd ( 5744 n Academy) between a church and a liquor store. Best to shop online first, then visit the store. Otherwise there is just TOOO much to see it all..

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Horrible service. Been here twice, and both times I was ignored by the waitstaff for over 15 minutes. Would have left but was meeting people there. Took forever to get food out. The food is good- if you're into local, organic, vegetarian stuff, but the prices are a bit steep and the portions are very small. Was shocked by seitan gyro did not come with fries for the price.

Re: “Acme Smoke

Not the best by a long shot. Smelled moldy when I came in. The girls working are cool though.

Re: “40 Thieves Hookah Lounge

I really liked the atmosphere when I first walked in and even the people were decent, but the crowd overall seemed snobish and not willing to mingle. I got over that quickly because I was there to smoke hookah anyways. Maybe five minutes into the night, one of the WORKERS there took off his shirt and started doing this weird bellydance for about 30 minutes. I was there with my boyfriend and it was very uncomfortable. I havent gone back since. If I wanted to see some half naked skinny freak strip, id go to a strip club. I have to admit, it was the most well kept place Ive seen in town for a hookah bar, but the dancing was offputting.

Re: “Cannabis Therapeutics

Nice people friendly and professional , but im sorry to say that your top shelf product was of very poor quality. Chlorifil-ley tasting in fact. just a 3 out of 10 for quality.

That was several months ago and i have not been back recently to see if things have improved. however your product gave a good argument to mandatory THC content testing which will raise prices for everyone , and was frankly such a waiste of money and lung power it is part of the reason i am here today.

Trying to do a good thing for my community where money comes hard for people these days.
