ChootemLiz Cold Stone Creamery

Love their ice cream, it is so rich and creamy. Their cakes are the best. They look great and taste great. We've also had their ice cream cookies which are yummy too!

naturebydawn Bryant Collision Repair

Bryant's made my car as good as new! I had wrecked my car to the point that the insurance company considered the cost to fix it was more than the car was worth. So they only paid the value of the car. I had to come up with the difference if I wanted to keep my car. The difference was about $1,500. But after asking Bryant's about the possibility of using used parts where possible and where safe, they searched around and found me a good deal. I actually ended up paying just under $100 difference instead of $1,500.

I was so happy when I got my car back from Bryant's. They did a fantastic job and I highly recommend them for good honest work.

I have been here multiple times to get my hair done by Ashley and I have to say THANK YOU!!! My hair is dark, crazy curly and I have tons of it!!! I have gone to other places before and never got them to cut my hair the way I wanted it :( Ashley really listened to what I wanted and made me happy :) she was very patient and a perfectionist which you NEED TO BE if you are cutting my hair!!! I also got highlights which came out great!!! I have recommended this place to a friend who went in for a haircut and was also very happy!!! I have also seen Marcia for waxing services and she was awesome!!! I got my eyebrows, lips, FOREHEAD yes that's right! and my arms waxed a few times now :) I love the fact that the room is always clean and she follows all of the sanitation procedures, the services were great and the prices were definitely affordable, also I like the fact that they are always running some type of deal or discount special, just look on facebook or twitter :) I will definitely be back over and over again :)

thebrettj Wow!

My experience with Knology has been disappointing. When Knology brought out Sunflower Broadband, I was excited at the prospect of getting rid of their restrictive bandwidth caps. Instead, Knology has continued to use the existing caps. Not only have they kept these caps, but the data they use on their website to justify these caps (this data can be found at is from April 2007! At the time of writing this review, I pay $46.40 per month for the Silver Broadband plan, which has a bandwidth cap of 50 gigabytes per month. This week I will be switching to AT&T, which while at a slightly slower speed, does offer three times the bandwidth for half of the price.

I understand that Knology is also a cable provider, and so it has a vested interest in keeping its bandwidth caps relatively low so as not to allow many users to access streaming video content (Netflix, Hulu, etc.). This does not mean that consumers should allow the company to gouge them. I for one will be voting with my wallet when deciding what is acceptable from and Internet Service Provider, and I urge anyone reading this review to do the same.

I just switched to AT&T... GREAT customer service and price! I was paying almost $80 a month for internet with 50mbds max, showed I never got above 16mbds, and constantly cutting in and out when I was streaming. Since we switched we pay $39.95 a month, and receive 18mbds and has not cut out once! The line is designated to my house so no slow times through out the day either! I love AT&T ask for Carlo at the 23rd St. location he was helpful and knew what he was doing!

Alex Hawman replies...

thebrettj, I am local employee for Knology here in Lawrence and would like to get some more information from you as to your overall experiences with the service as well as what pricing and/or promotions that you will have AT&T. Would you be able to provide us that information? We'd love to see what our competition is offering that would pull you away.

Additionally, I'd like to wrap up here with some information about our bandwidth inclusions. First and foremost, they are not caps. We do not stop nor slow your service once you reach the end of your included allotment. Instead, we charge you for the extra that you use. This allows us to keep our prices as low or lower than the national average for equivalent speeds.

Second, our bandwidth inclusions are designed to fit the needs of 95 - 96% of our users normal monthly browsing habits. Sure, there are the occasional months that users need to have just a little bit more bandwidth, but we don't prohibit them or make them change their package to accommodate that. There are also some users that attract a virus or have an open wireless network that simply do not know about their usage unless they are billed for it. In those circumstances, it allows us to reach out to the customer as an educational session. Additionally, as long as the customer has not had a credit for bandwidth usage in the past, we will credit those charges.

Lastly, we understand your sentiment that we would actively work against technology progression to delivery of video service over the internet. However, your statement is simply not true. It is specifically for this reason that we developed our Palladium internet which has no bandwidth metering. We understand that customers want to be able to watch hours upon hours of shows/movies/cat videos on Youtube, Hulu & Netflix, or listen to hours of Rdio, Pandora or the soon to be available Spotify. Palladium is designed for those customers as it is tuned for downstream usage for streaming audio/video. If we truly wanted to stifle innovation, we would not have designed that data package.

Again, we welcome an open discussion & feedback on how to make our business better in your eyes. Please feel free to respond here or email us at The address is still active and we still have a local presence responding!

If you are switching from Knology to AT&T you may well be exchanging one set of aggravating problems for another worse set. I switched from AT&T last year mainly because my account was screwed up every month. I for some stupid reason went back to AT&T in December. The challenge with the billing has not changed. In fact, they bundled someone else's wireless service(three cell phones) with my home phone account. I have been told several times it's been fixed. As of this morning, I was told the same thing again. Customer service has seen a vast improvement at AT&T over last year, but i still know more than some of their CSR. Be careful what you wish for.....

Nana1433 Bambino's Italian Restaurant

Bambino's has great class. My grand kids were with us, at times they started to get just a little rowdy but our waiter was great with them. Kid talking with them taking their mind away from being rowdy.... The kids liked the pizza... When I saw the total amount for our bill, I was amazed that it wasn't a lot more for this class of establishment. Their motto is 'Fine Food, Fair Price' it should be 'Great Food, Outstanding Prices'. Highly recommended

JenniferBaker Bambino's Italian Restaurant

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

JenniferBaker Burger King

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.

StevenW Bambino's Italian Restaurant

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.

smhicks Smashburger

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.

dtomatoe K.S.R. Roofing

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.

BENZ190 Bigg's Barbeque

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
