timbercreeks Pet World

Awesome store and awesome animals! I get all my fish & water from Pet World and they actually LIVE! The staff is so helpful and always willing to answer my questions. If you go in at a busy time it can take awhile for them to get to you but when they do, you do not feel rushed. They always spend the time they need with each customer. BRAVO for having such a great place for us to go IN Lawrence!

I drove up from Topeka to check out their used inventory today. I'm with ATT not renewing a contract shopping for smartphone. Dude hooked me up with a repaired HTC inspire for a sweet price. The phone is in very good shape, bestbuy has it priced at $599 outright without contract. I got it for under 200 and I'm very happy about that.

Sunnydays 21st Century Chimney Sweep

Allen Clough, the owner of 21st Century Sweep, has been wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the chimney business and was able to explain (in simple terms) what was needed for my chimney to be repaired. He referred me to excellent resources and spent extra time answering my questions. He went above and beyond to make my fireplace look nice and included many things at no extra charge. He is a kind man who knows his stuff! I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

kippers Fat Freddy's Pizza and Wings

Really disappointed. My food arrived about an hour and a half after I ordered it. All of the boxes were obviously smashed tightly into something, which was confusing because two of them were in a plastic bag to the side. The curly fries had obviously been packed and then sat in a car for probably 45 minutes, were cold, chewy and wet from the cooked condensation. The wings were fine, disappointed in the quality, but they were cheap and the sauce masked all gross things. The pizza, lets talk about that. I ordered cream cheese as a topping, expecting cream cheese spread over the pizza in a uniform general manner. Nope. I received about 3 huge globs of cream cheese on a pizza. Topped off with more cheese. So some one really made the conscious decision that that was a good idea. The pizza arrived, and half of the pizza had slid down and folded on top of its self, so that was gross. The cream cheese did allow its self to spread out more evenly that way. All in all, it was a pretty tragic experience. We were ready to eat delicious hot, fresh food, and instead received a box of ok pizza, poorly topped, and cold ruined fries. Not worth the money I spent.

I could handle this comment several different ways. I could take the high road and ignore it. I could take the low road and apologize for everything. Or I could analyze and dismember it for the true rotten trash that it is. I will do none of those things. But I will ask you two questions, and then I will make a statement.

1. If you had a bad experience at my restaurant, why didn't you call me and let me correct it?
2. Why are you publicly trying to ruin my business?
3. I am just a guy trying to live the American Dream. I'm 36 years old, I'm a helluva pizza guy. I've never owned a business before, but I've made other people millions of dollars through my own hard work. I worked 6 days a week in Orlando, with an average day consisting of 300 tickets, and the average ticket had 1.5 pizzas on it. I worked, and slaved, and sweated, and made pizzas 'til my fingers bled for 9 years, and saved my money. You do the math, but what I've worked out is, I'm in it for 1.2 million pizzas. I can't turn back. I'm all in. I've come back home after ten years of east coast pizza hard labor and now it's my turn to make millions. I started Fat Freddy's with nothing except Gumby's phone number and a will to succeed. I resurrected Gumby's from the grave and have turned it into a wonderful, new, fresh operation, with really awesome pizzas and fried chicken wings. I use only whole foods, beef, chicken breast, sausage...all cooked in house...onions, green peppers, mushrooms, sliced by hand daily...just to name a few. I put tons of toppings on my pizzas and all of my wing sauces are homemade, including Quinn's Crack Money, Sticky Whiskey, and Fat Freddy's Favorite (Hot, Honey, Garlic) I am frying up tons of appetizers. And I absolutely REFUSE to water down my Philly Cream Cheese and spread it, but I digress. I wasn't going to address any specifics of your comment. So this will end my statement. -Fred

Charlie Bannister Ball Construction Inc.

Ditto on megregor rating and comments. We used him for a lot of work this past summer 2011 for two houses. Does good work and is reasonable. Comes across as a real nice guy. But he has got to be the world's worst person for returning phone calls. If there were an Olympic event for that, he would get the gold medal. He told us he ordered a window for us and never got back to us. Called him for 3 months straight and never got a return call--not even one. Luckily we had not given him any money on it. I insist on the work being performed first. THEN I pay. Period. Also referred him to a relative for painting a house. He came and gave a bid, but never even started the work. They called him numerous times and he never returned their phone calls either. My conclusion is he is a total jerk and I would not hire him again to walk my dog.

mlgibs Steve's Auto Plaza Body Shop

We would highly recommend Steve's Auto Plaza Body Shop! We worked mainly with a man by the name of Justin who went the extra mile to work with our insurance adjustor and made sure the car was repaired properly. We were rear-ended... and there was nearly $10,000 worth of damage to the car! They did have the car for a fair amount of time, but we were told up front that the repair would take several weeks. He was very thorough in going over the estimate and keeping us up to date throughout the entire process. We just got the car back yesterday... and it looks like NEW! (And if any problems do arise, all we have to do is contact them since they guarantee their work). We are very pleased with the work done on the car and the customer service!

KansasGurl Dale Willey Automotive

We saw a crossover advertised by Dale Willey of Lawrence, that we were interested in and it was in our price range. I called to inquire, and at first they said the car was sold, then after a few more questions they said it hadn't sold, but they'd raised the price about $750. They did say they would honor the price they had advertised on Autotrader. My husband and I traveled to Lawrence to drive the crossover, and liked it. We went home and checked it out on CarFax and found out it had been in an accident involving front and rear impact (reducing the value of the car by $980). We called and told them that we had discovered the car's history, were still interested, but would want our mechanic to look it over, and would expect the final price to reflect what we had discovered (if we still wanted it). They said they would work with us. I arranged to pick the car up at 1 on a Saturday to take it to our mechanic. When I was almost to Lawrence, my husband called me; they had called to inform us they had let someone else test drive the car. No problem, that shouldn't take long. I continued toward town and called the dealer, they said they couldn't guarantee when it would be back. Okay, I asked them to call me when/if it was available. I had Christmas shopping to do. They called at 2:30, (I was about ready to leave town), to say the car was back. I informed the young man dealing with us that now it would be difficult for me to take it to our small town 40 miles away, and get it back before closing, since we had a meeting that evening. He said he'd talk to his manager and they'd probably let us keep it over the weekend (I offered to bring it back the next day). I headed back to the dealership, the car was there, I went in, sat down and the young man informed me that his manager had decided that if we took the car over the weekend they would not be willing to negotiate the price. I would have to agree to pay the price we'd had seen on the internet with him immediately, before having our mechanic check it out! I stood up to leave - I'd wasted enough time with this outfit. The manager (or whoever Danny is) came out and reiterated their conditions. I asked him why they didn't just tell me that in the first place, I wouldn't have wasted my time waiting. I ended up leaving, never to return! I think you can draw your own conclusions regarding this car dealership from what I've recounted of our experience. Certainly not a dealership that I would ever trust to do business with. We now have a used Saturn Outlook that we got at a good price, from someone who truly wanted our business, and that we found we could trust.

I've delt with Dale Willey for years and have never had a bad experience! It's easy for people to leave a bad comment but what about all of the good?

Kimberly Grosse Jiffy Lube

I would give no stars if I could. I came to this Jiffy Lube location last Friday for an oil change. They called when servicing my car to attempting to up-sale the service stating my anti-freeze read as "deemed unsafe". I've done some research to find no information on coolant ever being unsafe. I find this particularly odd because my radiator was just replaced with all new fluid only a month ago. During this phone call I first noticed the severe problem with their phone system. During the whole conversation there was a clicking problem that made it extremely hard to communicate. I When I came to pick up my car they informed me that their credit card machine was down. They admitted to me they should have informed me when I arrived that I would need another source for payment. I didn't have one- and explained I had an appointment that I needed to get to so they allowed me to take my car without payment with promise I'd return before they closed at 7. It was 5 then. They called me literally every three-five minutes from the time I left until 6:30 when I was done with my appointment and was able to answer. Apparently their machine had begin working so I paid by phone. The person I talked to had just finished telling me how his supervisor was "coming down" on him for having so many open tickets. I told him I realized the problem with the machine was out of his control but I didn't feel like they were dealing with it in a professional way and I wanted to speak to his manager. He then told me HE was the manager. I expressed my complaints to him, including their phone problem, calmly and he said "God, girl! I don't need you yelling at me. I already have all of these people threatening to kick my ass. I'll be contacting the police department to deal with you." I asked him his reasoning for contacting the police after I had already paid for a $65 oil change (I've never had to pay this much for an oil change before by the way. I don't even know what services I was paying for as they wouldn't print out a ticket for me while I was there.) I told him I felt that it was my responsibility as a customer to let the manager know when I'm not happy with their service. He barely apologized for the inconveniences. Mostly made excesses. He apparently never called the police as he threatened. I'm not sure what they could do anyway. He did offer me coupons I'll never use- as I'll never return to this jiffy lube again. Save yourself a huge headache and stay away from this place!
