Mike is indeed one of the best plumbers in the area. Friendly, quick and professional. Really knows his business and never overcharges. I have a bothersome kitchen sink that needs clearing at least once a year and it never takes him more than an hour to fix it.
I am a college professor in California, who recently had the opportunity to visit my 90 year old friend of 35 years at Pioneer Ridge Retirement Community. I have been teaching an Aging course at a California State University for 20 years. In that time I have visited many types of living arrangements for seniors. I must say, Pioneer Ridge is among the best of the best. Their environment is extremely well appointed and meticulously maintained. They provide a variety of activities and a very well balanced meal plan. Moreover, I was extremely impressed by the staff professionalism, flexibility and caring nature. These are truly devoted caregivers. I would certainly encourage anyone looking for a wonderful living arrangement for their loved ones, to consider Pioneer Ridge. As a dear friend of a current resident, an educator in adult development and an advocate for senior care, I am confident that you will find Pioneer Ridge and exceptional living option. Thank you to Debbie and Cindy and all... for a wonder visit with my dear friend Leola Cameron Cooper.

When dropping my dog off I asked the staff to please not let him outside for long periods of time, as he has a tendency to eat everything in sight, which makes him sick. I told them it was fine to just let him stay in his "room", as I knew it would be too much to ask of them to watch him the whole time. They obviously disregarded what I said, and my dog spent a great deal of time outside. He is now going on day 5 of being sick. I will not use this place again. Aside from not respecting our wishes, the place was filthy and smelled terrible. I realize it's a dog boarding place, so it's not going to be spotless, but I've boarded my dog at several other places and never seen a facility quite so disgusting.
It's not typical of me to post complaints, but I feel I have to because of the way I was treated at SconeLady's this morning. I have been there about 8 times before and coffee and scones were good and the girl was very nice. Today I get my scone and it tastes kinda stale and hard. I am nice and just mention that it seems a little stale thinking they could nuke it or change it out. I could hear the guy in the back cussing me out saying that I was just like another customer (complaining) and the recipe is the same as it always was. Hey man, you might be having a bad day, but don't take it out on people who don't deserve it. I had paid for all my stuff but just walked out and won't be back.
Before they changed their front desk clerk I really liked this shop, however now they do a really poor job. It takes forever, even when you make an appointment. I was lied to about the qualifications of the mechanic that would be working on my car and they even left a piece off of my car. I was completely dissatisfied and will never be using this shop again. If I could have given it zero stars I would have...
Where to begin...we randomly stumbled across this review of Culinaria on marketplace and we are so happy we did! We met with many "corporate" wedding caterers and none of them matched up to the awesome duo of Aaron and Regan. First off, we felt like we could be friends with them outside of the business. They are such a nice, down to earth couple. It was such a fun tasting! They had so many great tasting and unique options. It was nothing like your regular old wedding food. Every time we needed to talk to them about any of our plans, they were readily available and we would end up just talking to them on the phone for at least 30 minutes. It was great. They are very competitive with pricing. PLUS, they really make the menu to your desires. So, we were already impressed with them before our wedding day...words cannot express how happy we are with how everything turned out on the actual day! Their service was amazing, their food was amazing, the whole experience was so awesome. We had so many guests ask us where our food came from. They loved the appetizers, the salad, the main dish, the servers. Regan even brought us drinks from the bar! You can truly see they love to do this in all of their work, which is amazing! Thank you, Culinaria, for a once in a lifetime experience!!
My wife and I were both big fans of El Mezcal and decided to visit this new place that replaced Ixtapa (we really liked owner Jesse). The menus prices are kinda high for Mexican food but my wife and I eat the shrimp and carnitas soft tacos ala carte and absolutely LOVE them. Cant get that at El Mez plus $1 drinks everyday keeps us going back for more. If you like Mexican food, you guys should give it a try and decide for yourself. (Unfortunately) you wont have to wait for a table. It's never really busy so I hope they can make it. Atmosphere is plain and parking lot is cramped but the food is my first priority. Trust me guys, pulled pork tacos here are the bomb! To momadon: you are right they are just pork (and pico de gallo) but they still taste better than the bland chicken and beef tacos everywhere else. These things are full of meat and don't really need cheese or lettuce in my opinion.
Keep your head up Basil Leaf you can't please everyone everytime. I have personally eaten at your establishment more times than I can count on my hands and have enjoyed every dish I have had, and the one time I did get food that wasnt up to previous experiences I have to admit it was still better than what you get at most other places in town. Having worked in the bizz myself for many years I understand your time and space constraints with your current location and am sure you do more than your best to keep up the pace and still produce quality products each and every time. I feel you do an outstanding job, ( even when the chef is a bit cranky) and I am a life long customer. I ate there on St. Patricks day with my wife and LOVED the special with the corn beef and cabbage with sweet pea sauce and potatoes. I dont even like corn beef or cabbage but you changed my mind, and the other dishes I loved were your tender flavor packed beef tips, warm red cabbage salad (unique and tasty) and of course my stand by go to the Tortellinin cordon blue. So be proud of what you are doing and keep up the good work and good things will come for you guys, I respect and appreciate what your doing, your two bad reviews must just be bad luck have a good day. When does the new menu come out and when can I get a copy?? BRING BACK BREAKFAST LASAGNA ALSO :)
Went there for the first time the other night based off these reviews and from what friends told me, I got the Chefs Special, breadsticks and calamari. The calamari was about like eating old fast food french fries, the Chefs Special was like progresso soup and the breadsticks were soggy and terrible. I wiped down my own table and threw away over 75% of my food then went home and made a sandwich. I even got some alfredo sauce hoping to drown out the taste of the breadsticks but the sauce was terrible too so i just left hungry.
where to start.....
- horrible customer service.
- Life insurance rates are ridiculously elevated.
- If you have a claim expect them to act like police rather than insurance agents.
- absolutely no follow-up with concerns
Their day doesn't start until after nine although they post office hours to be from 8-5. You will never be able to reach them in the morning. If you think you can stop by the office to take care of business in the morning you should make an appointment because nobody will surface until well after 9am.
Excellent work -- rescued me from lower back misery, and is moving me through to reach some long-standing strength and flexibility goals. I highly recommend Dr. Hugunin for pain relief, but also for sports performance.
This is my favorite do it yourself car wash on the east side. There's rarely a line, it's always clean, the vacuums actually work, AND I can swipe my card to pay (because I never have enough quarters). I don't really live near this location, but I'll head that way when my car is in need of a cleaning.
If you don't know what the LGB program is, you've gotta check it out. I have been introduced to so many different local businesses because of this program. You basically use your card at any of the participating merchants and you earn money for a charity of your choice. It is a great thing for Lawrence!!
I've been coming here for more than 10 years and will continue to go there as long as it's in business. Honest, informative, helpful, reasonably priced, locally owned and a pleasure to work with....ALWAYS. Highly recommend!!
