lancekeltner7 Harris Auto Repair

Most of the time I do my own car repair, but when my timing belt replacement came due, I just didn't have time. I called the dealership for pricing, and was a little shocked. Then, I called Harris Auto Repair and was pleasantly surprised by a much more reasonable price. They got my car in and out same day, and that can be a tall order for timing belt changes.

Communication was great, the service was great, a I will definitely be going back for future services. I don't allow most people to touch my cars, but Bryan and his staff have earned the right 100%.

cal3door Harris Auto Repair

In responce to cwoo7i11 by Harris Auto. There 2007 Pontiac Torrent came to our shop with the ABS brake control Moduel applying brakes so hard that all the brakes were smoking when they drove it to our shop. This damaged the brake pads and over heated the rotors. May I say also that this repair was paid for by there Warranty Company, and the warranty company set the authorized price that was dealer list price on the part and Mitchel flat rate manuel for the labor. The other thing that I may say the ABS brake control moduel was special order from the dealer and we were at there mercy waiting for the parts, (it did take longer than the dealer told us it would take). This customer chose not to have any repairs done that they had to pay for out of there own pocket. They picked the car up and were told that other repairs were needed and the insurance company would not pay for the other repairs because it was not in there contract. Note: This car needed the other brake repairs that were not done, we recommended that they tow the car to there other licenced repair shop.

nyks96 Action Plumbing

See additional review at . Great plumbers but poor customer service. We had no expectation of immediate service--good plumbers are busy and in demand! However, we WERE disatisfied with the suggestion of a Monday appointment to address a leak in a newly installed commode discovered on Friday--on a newly installed vinyl floor. And we needed an idea of when the plumber would come as we work and needed to come home for the service visit. The leak was not the problem--that happens--but the unwillingness to address it promptly and the rudeness we experienced was extraordinary. The problem was fixed on Friday only because we insisted on not waiting until Monday for the repair. We stand by our original post.

peter_jackson Taste Lounge, Bar & Grill

So I went to this place tonight at midnight with 3 of my friends for a b'day party only 'cause the b'day grl was only 19 (so couldn't go to any 21+ clubs) - the music SUCKED! Rap music that you can't dance to even if you try to improvise. One of the bouncers was mean to my friend - he kind of shoved her/hit her arm when she accidentally took her drink to the restroom.

megregor Ball Construction Inc.

Nice guy, good references, and good work BUT he didn't finish and disappeared with $450 worth of work paid for and yet to be done (windows). Didn't respond to emails or calls and has never returned to finish up. So our rating is a big fat ZERO, most unfortunately (although it shows up here as one star because I had to put a star rating in order to post). USER BEWARE!!!

lovemycars Steve's Auto Plaza Body Shop

For the highest quality and most dependable auto body repair in the region, Steve's Auto Plaza Body Shop is far and above the best choice. Steve and his staff go the extra mile to meet the needs of the customer from their initial contact through the completion of the repairs, and beyond. Steve's Auto Plaza Body Shop stands behind their work and offers the best warranty of any shop that I have dealt with in Kansas. I especially appreciate the continuous communication between the shop and the customer as repairs progress.

Steve's Auto Plaza Body Shop should be the first, and only place, that you take your vehicle for auto body repairs in northeast Kansas.

ChootemLiz Dunkin' Donuts

Called three times during a weeknight at 8pm to ask a question and no one answered the phone. You can't tell me this is a busy time of day. I understand taking care of customers in the store but how hard is it to answer and say please hold. The phone call saved us a trip across town.

The one and only time I've been here the line for the drive thru was out on to 23rd St. I went in and there seemed to be confusion and lack of leadership. I stood at the counter for a minute or two before anyone acknowledged me. The donut's were not worth the hassle of getting in and out of the store and there was a lack of friendly service. Munchers is my donut shop of choice...good thing I'm not a coffee drinker.

Dave Greenbaum La Parrilla

Since the move from counter service to table service, the quality of the food and experience has remained the same. I was initially worried that prices or selection would change, but for the most part they haven’t. They still have daily entree and soup specials that, for me, are always a highlight of our visit.

This is South American fare, not just Tex-Mex. Expect recipe and styles of cooking from all over the region. Standards such as enchiladas and tacos are available, but more exotic ingredients are included. This place is extremely vegetarian friendly and you can order rice and beans without animal products upon request and the tofu rice bowl is a protein packed and complete treat. If I’m feeling more sinful, I might get a portabella and Roasted Red Pepper chimichanga. Salsas are tasty, but the chips aren’t usually very fresh tasting; the guac is to die for!

The service is generally speedy and friendly, and above average for a college town. A great choice!

Dave Greenbaum Advanced Plumbing Inc

A great reliable plumber with a personal touch. I like not dealing with a big company that’s trying to upsell a variety of products and service plans. Chuck Folks is personable and someone I completely trust in my home. We’ve used him for years and he’s done a consistently awesome job at a reasonable price.

cmg Char House Barbeque and Fried Chicken

OMG!!!! The best hamburger I've every had. I really enjoy the Char house texas burger, the onion ring the sauce, it is fantastic. Also they have a Fried cheese ravioli with a roasted red pepper marinara sauce that is to die smokey and yummy. If you haven't tried this place out you need to. The owners are so sweet and friendly, on site most of the time and the atmosphere is so clean and comfortable. You really need to give this place a try.

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!
