Me and 5 of my girlfriends went to Bambino's for lunch/dinner after a baby shower. It was great. After dinner we had a few drinks. Not only did they have a fully stocked bar...I was very surprised to find out that they had my favorite drink Grand Marnier. I have asked for this drink at a lot of places in town and they don't have it but Bambino's dose. After the bar we went out to the patio out side, what a nice place with different kinds of moods, lighting, and atmosphere. I love the service and the different texture of the restaurant side, the bar side, and the out door patio. Thanks Bambino's
I don't normally eat fast food or I try not to as much as possible. But the other day I was running late and didn't have any time for anything else other than fast food. Well I stopped at Burger King and I have to say for fast food it was ok. I still do not recommend you eat fast food unless you have too but Burger King was ok.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! The food at Bambino's is incredible. And the service is one of the best I have seen. I am lactose intolerance (I can't eat cheese or any dairy product), when my wife and I ordered we forgot to tell the waiter to hold the cheese. So when she brought out our dish, my wife told her that I can't eat cheese, she said no problem... She said she will have the cook re-cook the dish with no cheese and she would have it out as soon as possible. Even though the restaurant was busy and it was my fault, she had my dish to me with no cheese in no time. Often my wife and I order the same dish and when she tastes my dish with no cheese, she always reminds me that it is not as good as hers with the cheese. This time when she teasted my dish without the cheese she was amazed that it was just as good as hers, if not better. We were so impressed by the food and service we got that we've been back 4 times. My wife and I highly recommend Bambino's. Next weekend we are taking our kids.
We ate at Smash Burger yesterday evening and the service was AMAZING! The assistant manager (I wish I could remember his name) gave us the best customer service I have seen in a while. He and the other gentleman on staff both were kind, courteous, friendly and welcoming. The food was also very good. I really enjoyed the sweet potato fries. We will definitely visit Smash Burger again.
I have had a very mixed experience with KSR and cannot recommend them. They put on a roof but left parts of the gutter guard off. The roof leaked multiple times. After repeated calls I had another roofer look at it. The photos clearly show parts were not put on with the new roof. I called the owner and have the photos still. Never agreed to take any responsiblity for the missing parts of the roof. Of course I had to have the ceiling fixed as well. Now a home inspector has indicated that the shingle company specification calls for roof vents. When the new roof was put on and bid for that was never recommended. Again a call to the company and again a statement of no responsibility. Small claims court it is with the photos and documentation. How sad to see this type of service.
Bigg's BBQ is my favorite barbecue restaurant in all of Lawrence. The food is fantastic, and the service the friendliest in town. The pulled pork sandwich is to die for, and the ribs are excellent with wonderful sauces. Be sure and try their sides, as all are home made just like grandmother used to make. Our entire family loves this place for the food and atmosphere. A great place to watch the Jayhawks! Jerry B
After 2 years I gave your business another chance to properly cook me a Hamburger. Unfortunately, your cooks still think a Hamburger should be PINK and RED inside. What a shame. This is the only place in town that practically promises a bit of food poisoning. I had a waitress bring me the wrong shot of scotch on a separate occasion and then she tried to say that I had to pay $24 for it. Come on! Customers paying for worker mistakes is WRONG!
I recently had a horrible experience at First Med. I felt that based on the fact that I didn't have any health insurance, I was judged and not treated like a patient that may have had insurance. Hart who is listed as an ARNP, treated me as if I was only there for some sort of pain medication, when all I really wanted was an antibiotic for my swollen glands. He didn't ask what was wrong with me, he just read it off the sheet and started off by asking me what I could afford. I had the means to pay for the visit and any tests, but he was very short and at first didn't listen.
Once I explained that I have chronic kidney stones and stated that I have been to a neurologist, he began to listen (kidney stones and swollen glans was the reason for my visit). He debated whether or not to give me any sort of antibiotic and then proceeded to tell me he would prescribe me something that may or may not help. Is this how First Med treats all their patients w/out insurance?
I have friends that go to First Med and have never had a bad experience. I am very upset and disappointed and don't think anyone should be treated that way.
Bambinos has gotten bigger and better since the move to their new location. My family and I went to their other location ocasionally because of the great atmosphere and reasonable prices. Now they have a new chef and everything tastes top notch. The specials are amazing and I cannot wait to see what the new chef has in store for their new menu!
I used to be a big fan of Bambino's lunch buffet when they were located on Mass St. I was glad when I heard that they had a Sunday brunch buffet also. I told my children how great Bambino's was and how nice the owner was. We went on a Sunday morning for the buffet. It was late mid-morning but I figured since it was advertised as a "Brunch buffet" we would be okay.I even asked if we still had time to have the brunch buffet because it was around 11. We were told yes. First of all it took us forever to get seated. Then the buffet was picked over and the food was cold. When I inquired if the buffet would be replenished the staff person acted irritated that I had bothered him and said he would go ask the cook if he was going to cook anything else for the buffet. After waiting for quite some time I realized that my family was the only customers who were eating the brunch buffet and customers were coming in to order lunch. I guess since we were the only family eating the brunch buffet we weren't important enough for them to care about the quality of food and the service we were getting. I asked again about the buffet, particularly bacon and biscuts/ gravy. I asked to speak to the owner. Finally someone in a dirty apron (I assume the cook) came out and put more biscuts and gravy out, placing the lid of the warming pan on the FLOOR and then slammed it back on the tray where food was. The owner finally came out and we asked again for bacon. About 15 minutes later the server came out to our table with a plate of about 15 pieces of bacon and said here you guys can just have the whole plate. This was offensive, but we did take the bacon because we had barely eaten anything. The owner gave us $2.00 off each meal which was nice but she acted like we were being unreasonable. Don't advertise a brunch buffet if you are going to be too cheap to keep it stocked until it is over. If they had told us that they don't keep the buffet fully stocked if it is close to lunch time we would have gone elsewhere. Needless to say we will not go back to Bambino's. The only reason why we went is because our favorite breakfast spot, First Watch, had closed down. It's been about 6 weeks since our bad experience at Bambino's and I've lost about 10 lbs since. LOL. First Watch opens back up this weekend! Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Similar experience on our first time there. Had friends in from out of town. The place was busy and there was a line to get in. We weren't even done with our meal when they brought the checks out to us. Then the wait staff kept coming over every few minutes and taking away any dish they thought we were done with. Kind of rude. Loved the food, but felt they were trying to rush us through. I know how they can handle this! Get a bigger building and more staff.
Confused how they can have 1.5 stars when everyone's given them 1 star...am I to understand then that as more and more people give one star their rating will go up?
We called for service with our internet, because it keeps going in and out. The tech said, and I quote, "It's above my pay grade to know how to fix this... sorry". I about pulled my hair out! Then the company I work for had television service with them at a very good rate, and understandably so, but were recently told the price would be going up, if we kept the same package, 1500%! OR for less 60%!
AT&T here we come!
Wow. Knology sure welcomed me to Lawrence.
We purchased a home in Lawrence and are closing in 3 weeks. I tried to establish service this morning and was told that they can't do anything until the current owners of the home that we are buying cancel THEIR account with Knology-- I was told this by a customer service rep and by a supervisor. Nor can they put in a ticket for someone to call me until the current owners cancel their service.
So essentially, Knology is requiring me to take time out of my day to call them several times a week to see if the current owners have cancelled their service before they will even consider establishing an account for my family. I had no issues setting up electric, water, gas, and recycling services, but nope, Knology can't even take my information, because heaven forfend that we get cable service established before we close and move into town. Looks like I will be heading to AT&T for all of my internet and cable TV needs before even becoming a Knology customer. And I thought that Time Warner Cable was bad.
I searched all over town for an affordable groomer that did a great job and I found it in Adorable Animal Designs. They always work with me to get my schnauzer in and are always very good at explaining what they need to do to get her clean. When I pick her up, she looks great and smells good. She is not overly nervous or anything when she leaves, which I take as a great sign of the good care that Kari and her staff take with the animals. I have recommended this place to many people and they have also been very pleased with the service. Keep up the good work and I will continue bringing my pet in there as long as I am in the area!
When you are looking for a inspirational place to have a cup of coffee or get a little work done, Signs of Life is a great destination. They use PT’s Coffee which is made right in Topeka, Kansas. They have an excellent selection of seasonal and traditional beverages such as lattes and mochas. Bottomless cups of coffee are always appreciated and this is one of the few places you can get decaf at night. I always find that funny ‘cause you want a non-caffeine option at night, not during the day, but that’s just me.
The place can get busy and most seating is small tables so it’s hard if you are looking to accommodate a large study group. During peak times the Internet can be spotty. A small “cozy’ area has a few large chairs and a couch.
Along with your coffee and other drinks, they have a variety of backed goods made locally or regionally and in particular povitica bread, the yummy Eastern European ethnic treat. They are one of the only places I’ve seen it at in Lawrence and it’s a treat not to be missed.
Staff is friendly and helpful and they don’t make you carry around a punch card: they track it all on their computer. Nice! Oh and they are a Lawrence Giveback member as well.
I’ve been upstairs to the art gallery and it’s a wonderful space and a key part of the Lawrence Art Scene. The bookstore aspect of it has a Christian focus, but they have a variety of secular books. Although it is a religious bookstore, if that’s not your thing, don’t let it get in the way. Nobody is going to preach to you there or try to convert you. Everyone is welcome here!
For obvious reasons, they are closed on Sundays.
