Tiamak La Petite Academy

My son Lincoln started in June of 2011 for the summer classe. He has really liked his experience at La Petite. The teachers have helped him adjust to his new school and the kids have welcomed him as well. While attending La Petite he is learning quite a bit his favorite activites are Friday Home Toy Share day, visits from the local police and fire departments. He interacts very well with his classmates I would recommend La Petite to any parent that is looking to start their preschoolers educational journey. Thanks La Petite

Sincerely Don

motoadventure 715

After a disappointing anniversary dinner at a much-lauded downtown joint, my wife has decided 715 is our go-to restaurant for special dinners. Though any restaurant can have an off day, our food and service at 715 have been consistently good and more often than not it's been great.

The next time you're out on a weekend looking for breakfast/brunch, give 715 a try. Other places will have a wait time or no tables free, 715 has yet to be full to capacity. If only those people waiting 45 minutes for a table knew the quality of food they could get just down the street for similar money. Ok, a couple bucks more, but they're two dollars well-spent.

Lastly, I'm not much of a meat-eater nowadays, let alone fried meat, but their chicken-fried pork steak is incredible. Quality cuts cooked correctly are the reason I could never go vegetarian, and I have yet to be disappointed here.

And don't forget a squeezed-to-order OJ!

motoadventure Lawrence Automotive Diagnostics, Inc.

I do all my own maintenance, but some repairs I'm not comfortable with. Since we moved to Lawrence I've been taking our cars to Lawrence Automotive Diagnostics, and they've stood behind their work and had reasonable prices. The one time we had to take a car back to them they didn't put up a fuss whatsoever, just fixed it promptly and free of charge, just the way it should be.

I'd recommend them to anyone. It's hard to find a good, reliable shop where you don't have to worry about being ripped off.

motoadventure Shrum Outfitters & Trading Co.

As often as I can, I try to give local businesses my money. Kind of hard to do with Shrum because they have been closed the three times I've tried to stop by during their hours.

There seems to be a Lawrence small business disease characterized by posting regular hours, having an open sign displayed, but being locked up and empty. It's a common theme in this town.

I don't want to be too hard on them because this town needs a non-sleazy place to buy hunting and shooting supplies, but I'm losing patience.

pstroble2001 Montana Mike's Steakhouse

'A friend and I ate at Montana Mikes on Saturday July 23, 2011. It was about 3:00 pm, the manager was very nice and accommodating, our waiter was on the ball. I was disappointed by the food though. We both ordered the special which was a 16 oz. T-bone with two sides. I ordered it med-well, when it came it was more bone and fat than meat, it was cooked ok, but was hard to eat, a little rubbery my friend didn't have a lot to say, which is unusual because when he enjoys his meal he does not hesitate to say it to anyone. When I first discovered Montana"s I really enjoyed it, but the last couple of times I've left wondering why come back, the quality seems to have left. I've eaten at Longhorn, their San Antonio 12 oz sirloin is great, looks like that's where I head to next time or The Topeka Steak House is pretty good too. Anyway I just wanted to vent my dissatisfaction and like anyone else when I drive over from Leavenworth, Kansas, I just want my money's worth and enjoy my trips out. pstroble2001@yahoo.com

Fast, friendly and reasonably priced. I bought a new opener called Tanner at Free State, he came right out on short notice, installed it and adjusted the door to open more smoothly.

He does good work but definitely make sure everything is absolutely perfect before you pay him. Don't take his word that he'll get back to you afterwards, He won't.

Emily Campbell AT&T Custom Communications

I went to this store, because it was closer to my house, when I had a quick question after visiting the 23rd St. store. The services was exceptional and below is my post for the 23rd. St. store, and can easily be applied to this location:

Made the switch a few weeks ago from Knology. I was paying almost $80 a month for internet service, and we switched to the AT&T plan for $39.99 a month. Our Knology plan said we had 50mpds and when we were having issues with streaming we called for service. The technician came out and said, "... it's above my pay grade to fix this..." So I went to AT&T. They told me to go to www.speedtest.net to see what download speed I was actually receiving--never went above 16mpds. My $39.99 a month plan from AT&T has me at 18mpds and thus far, two weeks, we have had NO issues. It's a designated line to my home so there have been no "slow" times. We have three computers, and a PS3 running constantly through out the day just to give you and idea of how much we use the internet. Thank you AT&T! I'm a customer for life!

They came out the very same day I called when the spring broke on our garage door. Even showed up at the time they said they would. Reasonably priced and professional. I'd call them again and would recommend them to friends.

delenn ALL-N-1 Landscape

* Just completed my 2nd project with AllN1. This was the installation of a pond and water garden. As before, my experience with the company was stellar. The design and the finished product are beautiful. Mark and the crew were a pleasure to work with and very responsive. Will most definitely use them for my next landscaping project.

Friendly office atmosphere. Dr. Kissinger took the time to explain the mechanics of my spine. He corrected the issue I was having and the problem hasn't returned. If you are looking for a great chiropractor-I highly recommend Dr. Kissinger.

cw007ill Harris Auto Repair

Do not take your vehicle to this place. I called to make an appointment was told to bring my vehicle in on Wednesday and they would call after they looked it over. Wednesday, I dropped the car off at 8am. By 4:30pm, I hadn't heard anything, I called the shop. They hadn't even looked at it, claimed they were really busy. I said, but I had an appointment, I was on the books. I picked up my car. Took it back to them Thursday morning. By Friday morning, we heard they would work on the repairs and it should be done by Tuesday, latest Wednesday. Tuesday came and went. Wednesday, I called they claimed the part came in late and they would have it done by Thursday mid morning. Thursday evening 5pm, I called, the vehicle still wasn't done. Friday after 5 I picked up my car. Took it to my regular licensed mechanic (Mass Street Auto.) he said after reviewing their receipt, it doesn't look like the repairs THEY MADE were DONE propoerly, it's still not fixed. I should also mention they wanted me to replace all brakes, rotors and pads on top of the ABS system. Mass Street said that wasn't necessary until the original problem was fixed. Clearly they have liars and poor spellers working there. Of course, it is a family business. Reading my receipt is like reading a kindergartener's attempt at spelling. They over charged me, based on my insurance/warranty plan; lied, and clearly didn't repair the vehicle. I'm a long time Lawrence resident and have never encountered such unscrupoluous business activity when dealing with auto mechanics. DO NOT TAKE YOUR VEHICLE OR EVEN YOUR TRICYCLE TO THEM!! GO to MASS STREET AUTO MUCH BETTER HONEST SERVICE!

agtmom The Nail Lounge

I was in town for a wedding, needed a mani/pedi, was referred to another place that was small and outdated, was referred to The Nail Lounge. I was very impressed with this great place. Tammy was my technician, she was very professional and outgoing. I really loved that the two techs did not speak to each other in their native language. I received excellent, fast service and I can not wait till I am in Lawrence again so I can go visit again! The owner was there and he was really a great person. Spoke perfect English and was very accomodating!

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 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 :)
