JucyJobin Pita Pit

I would like to start by saying that I've worked in the fast food industry and had my fair share of bad days in the kitchen. I would not typically comment on sites such as this for a poor restaurant experience here in Lawrence. That being said, i would argue the last time i was at Pita Pit in Lawrence was borderline discriminatory. The fellow in front of me was treated respectfully and likely had a four star experience. When it came time for the same employee to make my order, he acted uninterested, uninvolved, and very moody. This was nowhere near closing time, just before 10:00 PM actually. He kicked a "to-go" bag around on the ground as he was taking my order, did not slice my gyro meat as he did the customer ahead of me, when i asked if the red peppers were pimiento's he shot back coldly while shaking his head annoyedly that they were "red peppers, nothing fancy." I then asked what the sauce of choice was for the gyro which must have just ruined his entire night because he turned around to flip my gyro meat and said "It's tzatziki sauce, dude." I'm not sure what put him in such a piss poor mood as a walked up to the counter that evening but I know for a fact if I'm about to be served by the same individual I will undoubtedly ask for another employee to make my pita.

the pita was fair enough, but paying around $7 for a so-so pita and awful experience will never be worth it.

Sorry Pita Pit, we just weren't meant to be I suppose.

Judithharris7587 Midwest Property Management

I have to echo the sentiments of the other reviews on this site. I have rented with many different companies in Lawrence, and I have never had any issues. But Midwest Property Management is without question the worst management company in Lawrence.

For starters, the apartment I moved into was by far the dirtiest apartment I have ever moved into. They made no effort whatsoever to clean the apartment before move-in. As a result, I had to spend several days cleaning years worth of dust, grime and filth from the apartment. The response from management is always terrible, good luck ever getting a maintenance request completed.

Stay away!

Cindy Yulich <!--1--> DoctorDave Computer Repair

Just had a terrific experience with Dr. Dave! Our desktop at home was running slower and slower, crashing, etc. to the point it was pretty much unusable. We called and Dr. Dave was able to look at it that day! We had it back the next day in perfect running order for only a one hour charge. How refreshing to find someone who does what he advertises, does it quickly and for a reasonable price. We strongly recommend Dr. Dave for your computer needs.

Thank you so much for that glowing review. You can't see from this end, but I'm blushing.

Delighted Matt and I were able to be of service and sorry we forgot to give you back the power cord!

cindych1 Green Room Salon

I had stumble upon this place based on the product they sell and that was the Oribe line. When I went in there I wanted the dry texture spray, but had questions about other things in the line. No one really knew much about anything in the line, but had told me "if you don't like it bring it back". With really dry hair they lead me to the Kerastase line and again I was given the same "if you don't like it bring it back". Well I didn't like that particular conditioner from Kerastase and I did bring it back.

I did schedule an appointment for a Brazilian Blowout which did nothing for my hair, if anything made it worse. I did bring this to their attention and they had me get more of the Kerastase stating "if you don't like it you can always bring it back". This time I had bought shampoo and some of the styling products from the Kerastase line. Being a product junkie I had bought about $200 worth of product.

Many of the products I bought were travel size so I could also try out some their different products to see what would work. Since I have had hair issues over the last year I have been trying to find something that would work. I did bring 2 items back and did repurchase more.

Today I went in to purchase the full size shampoo that was working and did return a travel size. The store owner met me at the counter and told me I could no longer return anything. I later counted I had a total of 6 returns, 4 travel sizes/2 full sizes and I had spent almost $1000 from Dec to April (this is based on my punch card they give you) All of these were only used a couple times so it wasn't like I used them up and got my money back. I returned based on their recommendation. Also one time that I caught had them over charge me on the return and not give me enough back. I didn't catch this till I was half way home. (live 30 mile away) They also charge more for their product than the website states it should be.

admehdik Oread

Adrineh Mehdikhani- Nick and Monte Asisian We stayed at The Oread on March 29th of 2014, we celebrated my husband's , my son's and my birthday. This was a very generous gift (the hotel stay, dinner and valet parking) from The Oread general manager, Nancy Longhurst after a misunderstanding of a previous restaurant reservation by one of her employees. She goes above and beyond for excellent customer service. Nancy, The general manager, Michael Norwood, manager of Five21 restaurant, Todd Schneekloth , the executive Chef, John the waiter at that night made our stay an unforgettable weekend. They truly made our stay very exceptional. They all went the extra miles to make our weekend one of the best weekends we had. All their effort, excellent customer service and their visit to our table were greatly appreciated. All of them made an special effort to make our stay extra special by the lovely and pleasant environment, unbelievable private condo, mouth watering and delicious food, excellent customer service. We do not go to the restaurants often, since I cook from scratch every day, however, all my family including my self would not mind making a trip there on regular basis. This was true excellent customer service. We will definitely return and stay with them and I will recommend this to the other reviewers. Thank you again and again.

Found the owner lacking in competence (the neighboring property was damaged). I suggest paying a little extra somewhere else for professionalism and proficiency.

Mr. Hooge, Mr. Steinwart, Nicole, Kim: everyone I came into contact with at Mr. Hooge's office was absolutely helpful, friendly, compassionate and efficient. I cannot say enough good things about these fine people. Not to sound overly dramatic, but they truly changed my life. They were all understanding and reasonable, facilitating a difficult and uncertain time for me with kindness and proficiency. Even with my endless phone calls and questions and emails, 100% cooperative and personal! LOVE this firm and their associates. Hire them!!!

Eybea Opiner Laird Noller Hyundai

I traded here for a long time and enjoyed the "home town" atmosphere. J.D., the service manager was great. Then, they did a huge expansion to "upgrade" their facilities, J.D. left, and things changed for the worse.

It seems that every time I have my car worked on I receive a list of "needed" maintenance such as alignment, brakes, struts, tire rotation, etc. Once I was told I should have my timing belt replaced, but guess car doesn't have a timing belt.

The icing on the cake, and the reason I won't trade there any more, is the $2700 estimate to fix an upper oil pan leak. I was told the price was so high because the engine had to be removed. I took my car to Bob's Automotive in North Lawrence where it was fixed for $700.

It seems that Laird Noller Hyundai is trying to pay for that "upgrade" all at once.

alf08 Tryyaki

I ordered the beef and broccoli from here a few times. Most of the time it is good. However, a few times the food had been raw. The first two times it was raw, I just heated it back up. Today I ordered it again, thinking that maybe it was just a mistake. When I got my food today it was so red that I didn't even want to try to cook it. I call the store back and they told me it had been to long since I ordered the food to get a reimbursement. I told the guy I still had the food. The guy argued with me until I told him I am just going to bring it back up there and he needs to give me a refund. I will not be going back due to the horrible customer service on top of the raw food.

ngu2013 AllofE Solutions

Had a chance to meet with a couple people from AllofE and love the passion they have for helping school districts and universities. I also had the opportunity to speak with a few of the school districts they work with in the Kansas City area and learn more about the work they are doing related to data warehousing and analysis. Very interesting.

CujoLou Cedarwood Villa Apartments

Very infested with bedbugs and cockroaches. Absolutely disgusting. Oven stopped working after a month of living there. Air conditioning is completely worthless, since the A/C is only in the living room, the bedroom is 100x hotter. Terrible experience with the staff and their late fees. Do not live here, absolutely the worst experience. YOU CAN FIND SOMEWHERE BETTER!!

Randy Erickson El Sol Mexican Restaurant

I always look for something unique at a new restaurant, and I tried the El Sol burrito here. Has beef, pork and chorizo, smothered in their spicy queso. I have a cold (limiting my taste) and I still tasted it, came through the cold! Pretty spicy, and very tasty. Wait staff super nice and the decor is very, very cool and original. Nice atmosphere to sit, eat, drink and talk. Muy bien!

Dionx123 Action Plumbing

Emphasis Don't use their service if you are looking for reasonable price. They literally just charged us $82 for 5 MINUTES of labor.. He literally just replace the parts and That was it.. for $82. I called them, and their reasoning was that they charge $82 on first hour regardless of how long it actually took. So unless you are seriously in trouble and need plumbing serice ASAP, I recommend not to use this service.

dinab replies...

We do have a minimum service call of $82.00 for the first hour, however, exceptions have been made for service calls that only take a few minutes. Our plumber was there for 33 minutes on this particular call. We regret that you are not pleased with our billing procedures. Please feel free to contact our office if you would like to discuss this further.

Dream63 PDS Moving Delivery & Storage

These guys were GREAT! On time, professional, friendly, trust-worthy ... just a good group of guys who worked well together and seemed to really enjoy and take seriously what they do. I have had terrible experiences with moving, including theft, damage, and generally poor, poor organization, scheduling, etc. Fortunately, for the first time in a total of five moves, this move went flawlessly.

I also had a piano to move down a flight of stairs. The (previoius) movers who moved it in muscled it all the way up with one guy who may have known what he was doing, and a bunch of skinny kids he was directing. It was nerve-racking watching that fiasco. PDS Moving used an electric dolly-like mover for the piano to take it down the stairs, so it was padded, then strapped securely. The dolly just walked it down the stairs; there was no tugging, lugging, and wobbling.

Suffice it to say, these guys know what they're doing. Honestly, don't waste your time trying to find a better mover in Lawrence. I don't think anyone can beat PDS Moving for service and price. I am a 100% satisfied customer and will recommend them without hesitation for anyone planning on moving.

Not only is Tan co the best tanning salon in Lawrence but their friendly customer service makes the experience even more enjoyable. Their beds are always super clean and their location is extremely convenient. I would definitely recommend Tan co to a friend!
