Love the Burger Stand! Used to go when it was at Dempsey's and feel like it is just as good, if not better, since it has moved to the Casbah. Service is always great (I usually ask for off the wall combinations and they always oblige). Price is a little high, but most of the trendy restaurants downtown are. Poutine fries are amazing! We always take out of town guests there.
Have been to Bambinos several times since they have moved to their new location. Service has always been good but their food can sometimes be hit or miss. Bruschetta is great, but either our server messed up our order or they don't know what cavatelli is. Sometimes their breadsticks are awesome and other times they are hard as a rock. Lawrence is in desperate need of a reasonably price, homestyle Italian restaurant and we're hoping that Bambinos can fill that void. They need more pasta specials and a good side salad with their pasta dishes, but food is pretty good other than that.
Dr. Stuart has been caring for our entire family for over a year now. We started visiting him when we were told that our youngest daughter needed to have tubes in her ears. After the first couple of visits, we could already see the benefits of his chiropractic care. He even met us on a Sunday evening at his office to do an adjustment for both of our daughters when they became sick over the weekend. Needless to say, it has been over a year and our daughter has not had surgery because Dr. Stuart has helped her so much.
Both Dr. Stuart and his secretary are the most kind and caring people we have met in the health care industry. They are flexible with our schedules and go the extra mile to help outside their normal business hours. We truly consider them as part of our family and our girls continually ask when they get to go see, "Dr. Stu" again? This is definitely the best chiropractic office in town!
Dr. Stuart has been extremely caring and helpful to my entire family since we started going to him six years ago. He treats my son for asthma and allergies and he no longer needs an inhaler. When my daughter injured her ankle at school he came out to my car and carried her in. He has always been honest and I am grateful for his care and genuine concern for our health.
I would like to know if anyone has been there recently that thinks the food is good... I was there last weekend and I got chicken tacos, and the meat was sooooo dry it crumbled, and I ordered it with no lettuce or tomato and got both on it. Also weirdly even though the chicken meat was so dry my tortilla was super soggy so the thing was not good and I couldn't even eat it. The margarita was good though. This was only the second time in 6 years I have eaten here because it was not good the first time either, but I decided it was time to try again. Yeah, its not gonna happen again.
These guys are the BEST. They came out right away, tackled the problem. It was wind-related -- the gutter sang like Meatloaf in 30+ mph winds. Had to wait until the next wind; it wasn't quite tight enough. They came out and tightened it down, with no extra charge. And, they noticed a few other things not quite right with gutters on the other side of the house; called and asked if I wanted that fixed. You bet, I said. They're professional, prompt and aim to please. I'd recommend them to anyone with a gutter problem.
ALL-N-1 is a great company to work with! We asked that a design be created for our front and back yards. The designer, Anthony is knowledgable, friendly and thorough. He took time to visit our property several times and make a plan that fit our needs. Our front flower bed is now beautiful and his team worked quickly and neatly. We are going to continue to work with Anthony and ALL-N-1 for the rest of our projects. They are highly recommended!
In mid-2004, I asked Fort Leavenworth’s Fire Chief (George Ramirez) to help co-pilot USNPS-LC200 sequels. We introduced Emergency Preparedness BSA best practices to Monticello Twp’s Willow Ridge Home Owner’s Association.
We were in a pinch and called up Adorable Animal Designs because the summer heat had approached quickly for our dogs and we couldn't get in quick enough to some of the places we've gone in the past. Getting our dogs in was also 'no problem,' but customer service and the finished product not so great, which of course lets us know why getting them in was 'no problem'. One star doesn't even cut it. I recommend spending your money elsewhere, like Pawsh Wash or K-9 Kuts in Baldwin. Our dogs look horrible, granted they were a mess to begin with but they've been much worse and have come out looking actually normal at other local groomers.
Priding themselves on hand scissoring is just wonderful, especially when they didn't even try to keep any of our Shih Tzu's facial hair. It's gone, all of it, despite instructions to leave facial hair as long as they could on all 3 dogs we brought to them.
Note: we did call to discuss our upset and to let them know that we wouldn't be coming back and they were argumentative and said, "that's fine," to end the conversation. We did question them about why they ended up cutting as much hair from the faces as they did, and they just had excuse after excuse. Again, we've gone elsewhere and they've taken the time to work with their faces, and not just cut it off. "Awesome" customer service and good job trying to ease the customer's stress.
Trust us, go elsewhere. We now have 3 dogs that look horrible, don't take your chances.
I ate at the Basil Leaf for the first time this evening. I called in my order for pick-up and the person who answered the phone was both helpful and pleasant. I ordered two entrees and a side of bread sticks. I thought the bread sticks were tasty, but perhaps somewhat under cooked - just by a bit. My wife didn't think the marinara sauce was that special, but I thought it was excellent and I am the one writing the review, so...
I had the Penne Abruzzi. This is a fantastic dish. I didn't really like the sun-dried tomatoes in the sauce, however. They were an almost startling contrast to the other flavors of the dish - almost briny. Criticism aside, I would still order this dish again. My wife had the Five Layer Lasagna. That is an all around fabulous dish - other than having perhaps a little too much noticeable salt.
One note about the great container controversy that you may have read about from a previous review. Basil Leaf Cafe uses typical to-go containers and serves very large portions. They have posted a sign that warns customers to be careful when transporting food. I heeded the sign but still ended up with a little sauce on the outside of box, but it was contained in the bag. No big deal. Maybe they could cut back their portion sizes so that the sauce has less chance of escaping? (Just kidding.) The place is a great value and the two meals my wife and I enjoyed were fantastic. I highly recommend it.
Looking for a great selection of beer and wine on the East side of town? Look no further than On The Rocks. As a beer lover, On the Rocks is a welcome addition to this part of town. A large variety of beers by the pack and individual chilled bottles make it a great destination . If it’s distributed in Kansas, they probably have it, and have it by the bottle so you can try one before buying a six pack.
The wine and liquor selection is great. Helpful and knowledge staff make this a winning place.
I've had nothing but good experiences with Garvin and his staff. They were patient, courteous, and of all the companies we were looking at a year ago when we bought our home, American Family had everyone beat on prices, too.
(Note: The picture above is outdated. The offices are now on West 6th Street just west of Hy-Vee.)
I had great service,It was much better then the chains and was not pushy like the hi end places I could not believe the selection over a thounsand quality eyeglasses in store,I found what i was looking for and feel good about purchase both in quality, service and of course price, highly recomended.
I had the absolute worst dining experience at this restaurant and I will never return.
We had no problem placing our order, but as soon as we found a seat after having to search for one because they had not cleared/cleaned empty tables we realized that there were well over 15 parties who had not received their food. Within 2 minutes of sitting down, a server attempted to bring my fiance a plate of fish tacos, which he had not ordered. When he told her that was not what he ordered she very rudely told him that his number was 36 and that was what he had ordered. He told her his order and she returned with the correct entree with the incorrect side. It was apparent he had been given someone's order who had ordered long before we had. About 15 minutes passed before he was able to get someone's attention and tell them that he was given the incorrect side. The same server then produced a bowl of fries and my entree, but the third person in our party had still not received her food. The server then told us that they were very backed up and that it would be a while before she would get her food. My food was served to me cold to the touch. My fiance's burger was also cold and was cooked beyond black. The fries he was given were also cold. There were no napkins to be found in the entire restaurant. Over 40 minutes elapsed between the time we ordered and the final person in our party was given her food, which was served to her cold as well, and initially they attempted to give her the incorrect order.
There were people who had sat down before us who had still not received their food when we left.
I will never return to this restaurant. I will tell other people to never come to this restaurant. I can see beyond mediocre food, but the service we received here was inexcusable and I wouldn't be able to tell you how the food was because we each only had a couple bites until we realized it was beyond cold. There was no salvaging this meal/dining experience. It was horrendous to say the best. I wish I could give this restaurant no stars, but that doesn't appear to be an option.
I am most upset with the way we were talked to and belittled by the serving staff. We will be contacting management regarding their service.
Chris and his trusty sidekick James poured a basketball court and did a stamped concrete patio for us this spring. They were done on time, on budget and really communicated with us throughout the process. We are thrilled with the work they did and will recommend them to everyone who asks us about our beautiful patio & court. Price was fair and they clearly took pride in their work. Happy to write a review for these good guys.
