cdreed Pizza West

Pizza West has the best buffet. The kids love having the train table and chalk board. Their salad bar is much better than most buffets. It is a great place to go after soccer or softball games.

The Sunday Brunch menu for a special occasion (Mother's Day) was fantastic. Prime Rib with omlette, hash browns, and asparagus; a fruit starter and a kiwi tart for dessert. Every meal is a pleasant surprise. The right atmosphere for a satisfying breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Great sports bar with a wide variety on the menu, including the best pizza in Lawrence. The vegetarian options for pizza are good. The staff is always friendly.

Whitney was absolutely amazing to work with! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for great, natural-looking and beautiful pictures! For a college student, the price of a photo shoot is generally really expensive but with the price with Whitney Leigh Photography was extremely reasonable. I got to have an individual photo shoot with unlimited amount of outfit changes and a retouched CD with the images for $150. Whitney knew exactly the type of shoot I wanted to take and made sure that all of my expectations were met, and then some. The day of my shoot was extremely cold and gloomy but Whitney made me feel really comfortable in front of the camera, which made the process a whole lot more enjoyable under the weather conditions. She kept the energy up and knew what angles were the best for the shoot. I haven't gotten my pictures back yet but from some of the demos she showed me, they look GREAT! Thank you so much Whitney! It was such a pleasure getting the opportunity to shoot with you!!

somedude20 Burger Stand at The Casbah

I gave this place three tries wanting to sample the greatness that I have heard about and have been thoroughly disappointed each and everytime!! The burgers are a little dry and sometimes like rubber with little flavor. They have these little fries that are kind of like Steak and Shake's (not a fan of Steak and Shake either) but only worse,like a limp old greasy midget finger. The sauces seemed watered down and it way way over priced. I believe one time I had a Tank7, burger and limp fries and it was over $16.00 (that was the first time but I tried it twice more) and the service, huh, don't get me started on the service or lack there of. I am thankful that Dempsey's can fill my burger void as this place is on par with Burger King but ten times the hiss! Best of luck though!

somedude20 Dempsey's Burger Pub

Best burgers in Lawrence!!!!! The burger is always juicy and cooked to perfection. The truffle fries as well as the (salty) sweet potato are amazing and the sauces, GREAT! I always forget the name of the pink spicy sauce but that is my fav. The staff is always so nice and helpful because Morgan sets the bar so high. I was meeting a special lady friend who only chomps on veggies there one night and asked an employee what would be good. They had a special of collard greens with raisins and nuts with a great sauce and he recommended it. Well, he was the head chef and was kind enough to bring out a plate of them (free of charge, thanks again) for her to try and it was very good. They have killer beer specials (all pints $3 on Wed/Sat) and the selection is great (a $3 Tank7). I have watched many-a-games there and the atmosphere there is always energetic! Thank you and keep up the great work!!!!

Whitney, is the best ever - So much was happening as me and my husband Travis were planning our big day, it was like we got all the little things done but when it came to cake and pictures we just keep waiting and waiting, a few weeks before the wedding Travis’s mother hears about Whitney and she is free the day of our wedding. The excitement we felt to here that, then God through us a bonus -she is a christian, so we knew she was sent to us. She knew my vision and gave me insight being I was going to be 6m pregnant on my wedding day in the dead of summer. She was and is amazing she meet all our request and made my day very easy. I would and did tell the world about her. We got our pictures back promptly after our honey moon. The pictures were amazing. All my friends and co-workers are jealous. All I can say is she is very good at what she does. Not to mention she is reasonably priced as well.

acottrell Hite Collision Repair Center Inc

I work for an insurance company in town and since we refer business to Hite, it was an easy choice to go here for my Hail Damage. It does take a little effort on your part to follow up with the employees on appointments and checking the status of your vehicle but the finished product is completly worth it! Didn't even recognize my own car. Hite did an AMAZING job on everything and will for sure refer business to future clients.

B_Nitz ALL-N-1 Landscape

It was a delight to work with the entire staff of ALL-N-One. From the very start it was evident that owners, Troy, Anthony and Brady were professional and knowledgeable in our front yard landscaping redesign and edible garden development. We had drainage issues that they efficiently resolved as well as some re-grading of the yard to maximize the drainage away from the house. The work was so well done, you would never know the problem had existed. It was apparent that Lance, Yuri, and Antonio were very attentive to the plan that was developed and responsive to all of our questions and concerns; further, they enjoyed and took pride in their work. We would have no hesitancy to have All-N-One do any future work.

T The Nail Lounge

I didn't know this place even existed until I got a gift certificate for there. I had scheduled an appointment which they had to re-schedule. For that inconvenience, they upgraded my pedicure. The pedicure/service were both good, and the atmosphere was nice, but there was only one person working. I just thought that was a little odd because they have SO many chairs in there for just one person to be working.

Dave Greenbaum Lawrence Freenet

Freenet is the local, independent alternative to national branded internet. This local company is directly involved in the community and a portion of every subscription is used to provide the needy and non-profits in town with fast, reliable internet and they are a pioneer in bridging the digital divide.

I’ve used their service for years both as a business in my office as well as out and about in Lawrence. With recent improvements, their system is wicked fast. My upload speed is the fastest in town hands down! When I’m close to their nodes I get up to 5M up and when I’m wired in my office it can be even faster. Download speeds are usually around 5-10M and faster than ANY wireless hotspot in Lawrence (and yes I’ve tested them all). Seriously this is amazing.

Obviously, as a wireless service, speed and reliability depends on your proximity to one of their base stations so your mileage may vary. Some locations may need one of their boosters. An easy phone call to their local support team will let you know what kind of connection you’ll get at your current location.

If you tried Freenet in the past and had problems you really need to try them again. With all the recent changes in the broadband marketplace, Freenet has emerged as a local leader providing Internet all over Lawrence without bandwidth caps and not just keeping business local, but reinvesting it in the community.

orsondog23 Bambino's Italian Restaurant

I am a huge fan of the new Bambinos! They came to the the Wakarusa location with the same old favorites but an even better chef. Our server was extremely friendly and very helpful when picking out a wine choice. I love the Pesto sauce, so I get it every time. My husband got the Shrimp Arribiata and I recommend it for those who like spicy foods and shrimp. They even have Pizza for the kids.

Not a print shop for professional needs. May fit the bill for student needs, but I have spent my last dime there. Equipment inadequate for various sizes and applications. Staff unable to print to size needed (never printed at 11x17?). Color reproduction is unbelievable. By all means use if your prints require a dark yellow tint over everything!

lahothan Jiffy Lube

Well, it's a Jiffy Lube. It's kind of expensive, but then again you're paying for convenience. I spoke with a man who I believe was a manager and he was very nice and helpful. I didn't feel like he was trying to sell me crap I didn't need like most places do. He noticed my fuel filter was the original (over 10 years old) and recommended replacing it. He even gave me half off on it, and that's all he recommended!

lahothan Meineke Car Care Center

Run! This place is a nightmare. I took it in 6 months ago to get new front brakes because they were having a half off sale. They told me it would take an hour. It took three hours, and I was late to work. After they gave me the car I quickly drove off to get to work and noticed my car was dragging. I took it back, and it turns out I drove over a mile with the brakes fully depressed. There was brake dust everywhere, but they didn't replace the pads, they just fixed it and gave me a free oil change.

A week ago, my back brakes went out, so I took it back in for them to check out. They told me that both brakes needed new drums and shoes. They also told me I needed new belts for my AC, power steering, and alternator. The estimate they gave me for these services was $650, which included half off of shoes. The manager of the place told me they could have it done that day, and I said no because I had to be to class and I needed to make a few phone calls before I did anything. His response was that he could take me to class. I said no, I don't have the money, I don't want to do anything today. He said that I could call my parents and have them pay over the phone. I said no, I don't want to do anything today. He then asked me when I would bring it back to have it done. I said I didn't know. He asked whether Thursday or Friday would work for me. I then demanded he give me my car back for at least the 5th time before he came around to giving me the key. I couldn't believe I got this kind of response from the manager of the shop. I ended up taking my car to a guy in Topeka and he did all of the above for $158. That's a $492 difference for the exact same service. Do. Not. Go. Here. Ever!

Jonathan Kealing Owens Flower Shop

I love Owens Flower Shop. They always deliver the most beautiful flower arrangements to my wife, usually taking some vague notion I have and turning it into something that's both attractive and stunning, plus meaningful. One time recently, I inadvertently ordered flowers from a different flower shop. I paid the same amount I always do at Owens and was unbelievably disappointed by what I got. When I realized that I'd ordered from the wrong flower shop, it made sense. I recommend Owens to anyone who's looking to order flowers in Lawrence.
