Mexico Lindo is a nice little spot in Willow Glen, in the Foxworthy Shopping Center. They have very good food and fast service. Their Chile Relleno is very good. Almost never have to wait for dinner seating.
Malibu Grill has great food. The ribs are fantastic and my kids really love the chicken strips. The prices are good, and the portions are just right. The place is kinda small and sometimes hard to find a seat (or parking, for that matter) but if you go early, or on a night the Sharks aren't playing, it's totally worth it. Great for takeout too.
John's is such a warm and inviting place. The owners are such nice people and the staff is awesome! The food is great as well. Portions are big and prices are low. We have been going there for breakfast for over 10 years and still love it! We've also had lunch and dinner there a few times and that food is great as well. Well worth a visit, you won't be disappointed.
Capers is great! They have a wide selection of items to choose from, something for everyone. Even my two kids (picky eaters) have no trouble eating here. The French Dip sandwich is one of the best around. Nice atmosphere, kind of an upscale sports bar theme. They also have a very nice Sunday brunch.
Almaden Parents preschool is celebrating it's 40th year in business and it's not hard to see why. This school is the best...the teachers are totally awesome! Their philosophy of positive discipline and involved parenting make all the difference. The kids are very well cared for and nurtured, and leave the school totally prepared for life's future adventures. If you have the ability to spend a little time at the school each week you will be totally rewarded!
Nail Art is simply the best. The staff is always friendly and drop ins are always welcome. They also have an extensive collection of airbrush stencils so they can make just about any design on your nails that you could imagine! Love this place!
Dr. O'Neill is great. I have all my OBGYN visits in her office, with one of her nurse midwives, and am about to have minor surgery performed by Dr. O'Neill. She has made sure to answer all my questions and make this process as easy as possible for me. She genuinely seems to care about her patients and doesn't try to get me in and out of the office as quick as possible. Also, the atmosphere in her offices is very comfortable, with home furnishings so everything doesn't seem so stark and bland.
Dr. Tanaka is the greatest dentist ever! I'm not an easy patient, I had a very bad experiance as a child, but Dr. Tanaka has been so gentle with me that I no longer fear the dentist. He even called me at home after a root-canal to make sure everything was ok! How's that for service! His staff is wonderful too. I have had to bring my kids in a few times and they are always cool with that. They have toys and a VCR in the lobby so I don't have to worry.
I can't say enough good things about this very special woman! She helped me bring both of my children into this world in a calm and relaxing environment, my own home. She never let me forget that I was built for this job, and it made the fear and uncertainty a little easier to manage. She works with excellent assistants too, I felt very comfortable having them share in such a special experience. Everyone should be so lucky as to have this remarkable woman attend their birth!
Dr. Wenner is a great pediatrician. He is totally willing to work with me and make sure I feel comfortable about every decision that is made regarding my children. He is very good about returning phone calls and his office staff are really on the ball. I even like the insurance billing service he's hired, it makes everything a breeze!
