ChootemLiz Paisano's Ristorante

I can't believe Paisano's doesn't have any reviews listed and they're a legend in Lawrence! The best italian restaurant in town. The calamari is the best I've ever had! I love so many of their dishes if I had to list them it would be the whole menu.

Went tonight for a fish bowl and dinner. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food was great! I love the pub chips (which were excellent tonight) and mac and cheese, it was piping hot. The beer was yummy too.

Sue Grosdidier Action Plumbing

WOW, very surprised by this comment. I have used Action on numerous occasions and have never found them to be anything BUT professional, courteous and reliable. I have also always found them to be honest and inexpensive as plumbers go. I have referred them to various friends and family and they have all been extremely pleased. They were referred to me and I have been passing that on because I am one satisfied customer amongst many!

Oldsoul First Med Family & Walk-in Care

I believe the receptionists here could definitely improve on their communication skills and professionalism. As the first reviewer states above, they should not be making insulting judgments about people's ability to pay for services. Even if customers really cannot afford to pay, they do not deserve to be negatively judged. Likely I'm better educated than the receptionists/office personnel dealing with me, yet I was patronizingly treated like someone with zero healthcare savvy when I was actually exercising a smart choice by doing my best to avoid high emergency room costs for a non-urgent injury.

The receptionists should ask you how you plan to pay your medical charges ahead of time if you phone for an appointment to avoid unnecessary waiting and office delays. Also, they should ensure they do not share your private health and financial information with the entire waiting room. This outfit seems to provide a clear illustration of the failings of our for-profit health system.

publicdefender Pyramid Pizza

Going downhill fast! That's a quick summary of my latest experience with Pyramid Pizza. Ordering on phone went okay, delivery was reasonable, but from this point on things got bad. They screwed up my order in two ways. Forgot to send half my order and the other half was not what I ordered. I called and complained. Talked to the "shift manager" and she agreed that my order was not right and the driver would bring the correct items out. She called back 5 minutes later and said that she talked to the driver and what I was given was correct. At this point, I had enough and told them to forget it.

This alone will get a business onto my Never-Use-Again list, but what topped it all was the food that I got was awful! Needless to say, I will not be ordering from Pyramid Pizza again!

coolone Rodeo Grill

The first time visiting this restaurant, the food wasn't too bad and the portions were big. The second time we visited, the food was TERRIBLE. My companions and I decided simultanously that the cheapest ingredients must have been used -- I had the super nachos, which should have had a lot of ingredients with them. I saw only meat (which had a very odd texture and we wondered if it was all beef), chips and some kind of white cheese that looked like it had been barfed onto the chips. When the server saw my face, as the platter was placed in front of me, I was asked if I would like lettuce and tomato. I said yes and it was delivered promptly. However, I believe the menu mentioned lettuce, tomato, guacamole and sour cream. So, no lettuce, tomato, sour cream or guacamole was on the original plate, and at that point I didn't ask for the sour cream and guac. We won't be going back.

Becky Finger Montana Mike's Steakhouse

Usually I don't have bad things to say about places. I understand that jobs are harder in the back than they appear to the customers. That being said, my past two experiences with Montana Mike's haven't been good. The first time, I was dining in with my family and my sister's shrimp was cold when she got it while my steak, which I asked for medium well, had to be sent back at least twice to get cooked properly and by the time I got it, it was way too tough to be consumed. However, the manager and waitress offered us free desserts. The second time, I asked for a well done steak again. It was completely rare. I personally find no reason for something like that to happen twice in a row. The customer service has been good, but the food quality needs to improve drastically.

rippedoff Twins Custom Cabinets

RUN AWAY!!!! This company doubled charged my credit card for $1560.00 and never provided services. They made two appointments with me to "remeasure cabinets" and never showed up after I waited hours for them. They said that they would return my money after I complained to them and to Angie's list but no refund ever showed up. This farce has been going on for months.

This customer requested a bid for to add to cabinets to existing kitchen cabinets & doors to an open arched bookcase & island. A bid was given. Price was more than customer could afford at one time. She asked pricing breakdown for various items. Revised pricing was given. 2 weeks went by. Customer decided on doors only for the bookcase & island (not designed for doors). Down pymt done by credit card on 4-1-11. Materials were ordered. Adl measurements needed to be made at customers house. Phone call was made to customer's at her office. Message was left with the receptionist. Customer did not call back for a week & a half. Called customer's back & left message with receptionist again. Another week & a half went by. After 3 weeks contact was finally made with customer. She advised she was getting divorced & thinking about selling the house. Not sure what she wanted to do. We offered to return her money at that time. She said no, go ahead & make the doors. Appointment was set for Friday, 6-10-11 (her day off). We were on an install job at another customer's home that morning & got delayed. This customer called my cell phone. I advised her we couldn't just walk away from the job in progress & might be able to get to her house late afternoon. Customer had called from a neighbors, neither her home or cell phone were working. She did not leave the neighbors phone number & we had no way to contact her & reschedule. This customer called our office on Sat.morning (not open on Sats.) She also called my cell phone & I was not in an area to receive service. She claims I blocked her calls which is untrue. This customer made calls to the office number 2 weekends in a row, not durring the week when we are open & left rather unsettling & somewhat threateing messages. She filed a complaint with Angie's List, which gave us a set date to respond by., which we did. The phone calls from the customer were made after she filed the complaint & prior to the "respond by date" from Angie's List. A cashiers check was sent certified mail to the customer's home address & 3 or 4 attempts were made. Customer did not go to the post office to pick up the check. The check was returned to us after 30 days by the post office. Angie's List called & told us the customer was not accepting mail at her home address & asked us to send it to her business address. This was unacceptable , as anyone could sign for it & she could still claim she didn't get her money back. We advised the person at Angie's List that the customer could come & pick up the check. NO RESPONSE.!!!!! We have absorbed the cost of the materials purchased for this customer & the expense of certiifed mailing & now a courier service in orderto get proof of identification & signature of this customer to deliver refund check to her at her business office.

chronicpink Starving Artists Moving

SAMMoving replies...

This client threw up roadblocks from the very beginning. On the day of his move, he called less than an hour before his scheduled time to say he could not do the move until 4:00 p.m. The Operations Chief scrambled to make this happen. Prior to this day, he had called several times, not seeming to understand the charges and time involved in his move. These were explained repeatedly. The move manager was not combative; he simply was surprised to see as many items as this client had, but assured him he would not be charged a penalty for this. The client called during the move to complain about a perceived "attitude" from the movers and was concerned that they wished to hydrate during the move. He was assured that he would not be charged for the time this took. He also complained about the travel time involved in getting to the job (standardly charged by most movers) and no more than fifteen minutes in this case. The time was subtracted in order to accommodate the client's wishes. At the end of the move, the client, who had insisted his move be changed until late in the afternoon, announced he could not stay any longer, that he had to be somewhere at 6:30 and told the movers just to set the goods down (normally we place these for the client). Apparently, the $90.00 fee about which the client complains was never understood by him, in spite of the dispatcher's best efforts. It is NOT a transportation fee per se; it includes protective coverings for the client's items and also insures his goods. An owner of the company tried to explain all of these things to the client by phone; he became very agitated and finally said that he would take down this review if he received a further discount. Our company always tries to make the best of a situation on a move and in this instance, we did the very best we could under very difficult odds.

ccigars Bambino's Italian Restaurant

It seems like a few reviewers haven't visited the new Bambino's location at Billings & Wakarusa. They have really done a great job with the remodel. Great staff and the new menu has a lot of good additions. In particular, the traditional pizzas are one of a kind, nothing else like them in town. If you enjoy a more Neapolitan take on pizza, it is more than worth your time to give one a try. I've had a few of the Margheritas and was very pleased. (Generally I'm a Chicago style guy, but I might be converting. This was a tremendous boost to the menu.)

One thing about Italian food, especially for those of us lucky enough to live with a good cook, is that it tends to be something that can be made fairly well and fairly cheap in the comfort of one's own home. There is, however, one big consideration: the sauce. Bambino's does a tremendous job on the sauces. For me, the Arrabbiata is the winner. A great combination of flavor and spice that comes just short of inducing a full sweat. If you like heat, this is another dish to try.

The drink selection is also to be complimented. Make sure to try a Hurricane. Right now, they might hold the title in Lawrence for that cocktail. All in all, there's great food, great atmosphere and great people. Even if you've been to the old location, there are a host of reasons to try the new and improved Bambino's.

I broke my front tooth on a burrito and walked into the office to see if Dr. J would be able to fit me in. He was able to get me a temporary crown right away so I didn't have to walk around for days with a broken front tooth. Thank you so much.
