Marcus DeMond Jade Garden Restaurant

I'm not going to say everything here is bad because it probably wouldn't be true. I'm sure they can do some dishes well. One thing I am certain of is that the crab rangoon is bad and the fried dumplings are terrible. Jade Garden, please listen to me. Your pan-fried pork dumplings are pathetic. Do yourself a favor and fix them or take them off the menu. I don't want others to not try your restaurant because most of the menu items could be fine. In fact, I would give you another shot, but I will not take my chances again with those dumplings. If you like just a pellet of pork in your dumplings, you will love this place!

I happen to love Jade Garden and I consider myself a foodie. I don't think they are a fine dinning restaurant, but I don't think they are trying to be. BTW, I have had awesome dumplings from there before. The thing I might stay away from is their Sushi. Not that it is bad, but they mince it. Their food is authentic, especially their authentic Japanese dishes. They also have great delivery service. They always delivery with a smile.

Best pizza in Lawrence. I also love Glory Days Pizza but I've been craving New York style lately and this is the best in Lawrence. I have tried them all.

I hired Roger (Maverick Construction Services) to construct railings for the front entrance to my home. His work work is top notch and his attention to detail was much appreciated. It turned out better than I imagined. The guy is truly a master carpenter and I would not hesitate to have him work on my next home project. Best of all, his bid for the job was very competitive!

Marcus DeMond Rodeo Grill

My wife and I were both big fans of El Mezcal and decided to visit this new place that replaced Ixtapa (we really liked owner Jesse). The menus prices are kinda high for Mexican food but my wife and I eat the shrimp and carnitas soft tacos ala carte and absolutely LOVE them. Cant get that at El Mez plus $1 drinks everyday keeps us going back for more. If you like Mexican food, you guys should give it a try and decide for yourself. (Unfortunately) you wont have to wait for a table. It's never really busy so I hope they can make it. Atmosphere is plain and parking lot is cramped but the food is my first priority. Trust me guys, pulled pork tacos here are the bomb! To momadon: you are right they are just pork (and pico de gallo) but they still taste better than the bland chicken and beef tacos everywhere else. These things are full of meat and don't really need cheese or lettuce in my opinion.
