Re: “Crystal Park Cantina

Very nicely surprised for a town that has many mediocre Mexican food choices. Locally owned, which is important for those who wish to patronize the mom and pop cafés, while avoiding the big box franchises. Great ambiance, nice wait staff, food exceeded our expectations. Will be back, and will tell our friends to try it out as well.

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

This is one place you need to try if you have not yet! The food is by far the best, and the owner is a great gentleman! Stop by now because you are missing out!

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

I don't trust any of this...I for one, will not be eating at this place. If they were truly this good they would not have to pull this flash mob posting campaign

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

When honest questions ensued wondering about the veracity of the majority (if not all) of the comments re Sancho's, there appeared no less than four responses from those same posters declaring hate as the reason for the posts. Come on people, what are you, in the third grade?
One cannot help but wonder if this is the best way to advertise a new restaurant.

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

Sanchos is the best thing to happen in this area. We love their food, especially the avacado pork burritos!!!!! I stop after work and order for dinner. Their tacos are to die for. Steve and his staff are super. It would be great if he could have an inside sit-down area for cold weather. We keep spreading the word.

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

interesting turn of events...I always read Indy reviews before heading out...but this hi-jacking of a trustworthy system really undermines this tool for checking out local places to eat.

I was going to try this place tonight, but not now...I don't like being tricked and fooled with like this.

I bet it is just more melted American cheese whiz over grocery store flat bread.

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

The food might be fine but unless you get some reviews from people that aren't family and friends no one is going to take this seriously.

I would rethink this practice. I have run restaurants and marketing is key. This isn't marketing it's spamming and it will turn people off.

The fact all the family and friends only give 5 stars and there are no outside reviews will make me NOT eat here.

Indy, please go there and do a review.

Now place all those posts on Yelp next. Wait to see the blow back you will get.

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

Sancho's has the best food around! All the comments may sound like their from family and friends because no matter who you are once you try the food, the owner and staff make you feel like family. The food and the great service is what keeps you coming back. So those of you who hate it would seem that your comments had exactly the opposite effect that you were trying to accomplish-Nice try but the people have spoken Sancho's is one of the BEST places to eat.

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: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

Sanchos is an exceptional establishment. I have known Stevie B since high school but that has no bearing on the tatse or quality of the food is which is top notch. Keep up the good work, haters are your motivators

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

This is coming from a family member and goes out to those that have had negative comments to make. You are putting the cart before the horse. Have you tried the food yet? You need to get your facts straight before posting. Not all that have made comments are family and friends. Some are just customers that have come by and truly enjoyed the food and service. You are implying that they are not telling the truth. How rude! Sanchos has only been open about 3 months so that is why you are starting to see comments come in. Many people know Steve for the work he does in this community. We encourage our customers to tell others if they like the food and they do so don't be so negative. By the way, NO it has NOT had a negative effect on their business. Sanchos is here to stay with good food and friendly service!!!!!

This post by COSGRINGO:
No offense but these are all friends or relatives. I have NEVER seen that many reviews all come in at once on the same day. Some of them late at night? And a comment about chili cheese fries?

Whats wrong with Chili Cheese Fries???

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

This coming from a family member and one that assisted in some of the recepies, wants to thank all the ones who TRUELY came through wether it be once or more than once to try Sanchos food. We cannot force anyone to comment on the food wether it be good or bad, not everyone will enjoy it and that we are fine with. BUT...for the ones that have not been through to at least try and and only go off of ratings in a paper should either 1 try it for themselves or 2 hate all they want. We do appriciate any feed back and are pleased to serve Family, Friends and the community. Thank you!

Re: “Sancho's Mexican Grub

Who cares if its friends and family making some of the comments. That'd obviously because they eat the food & know what's up so for those sitting there making negative comments get of your a$$es n go Get some food and try it so you can shut that hating down... Don't hate on us small businesses because we support our people instead of the of the people who have to step on us to make a name for themselves
