Started off with price discrepancy's. No biggie the room was upgraded a lot of the city was sold out so we said let's just get past this and enjoy the trip. The staff is rudest I have experienced in a hotel. Even the manager has a "I don't care" attitude. The room was nice until we looked at the bed. The comforter was stained, there was a used napkin in the bed and the next day housekeeping popped our sheets (reused). It looks nice on the outside but with the staff and poor quality housekeeping staff I wouldn't take a free nights stay from here.
We went on an east coast trip and our last stop was Primanti Brothers. Stayed the night in Pittsburgh just to go there.
What can you say!? It's a must. Delicious great service, amazing food. If you have heartburn bring your tums, or in my case gallbladder, your pain pills. It was worth every bit of it. I can't wait to go again!
We frequent Sno castle in the same parking lot and have been curious about this place for over a year. So we decide to try it.
It's your basic Italian. Small place.
We started off with garlic knuckles and boneless BBQ wings.
The knuckles had good doughy texture but were pretty bland.
The BBQ boneless was fantastic! Exactly identical to the wings at Applebees and at a fraction of the cost.
The kids had Fettuccine Alfredo, it was so bland the kids wouldn't even eat it.
My wife got a salad which she didn't care for.
I got the Pizza roll which was good!
Tasted fresh and I enjoyed the ingredients.
Service was ok. Server was young but he wasn't bad by any means. Could of used refills faster.
Overall is was ok. I would eat there again just to try some other foods, if anything I will definitely be back for the wings.
We recently went to Chick-a-Boom at 10121 East Washington Street (same company just the restaurant portion)
Indianapolis, IN 46229 by the recommendation of a friend.
When we arrived we saw the cook chewing out the cashier. We go inside and he goes back to the kitchen. Service is moving a little slow, no big deal. Come to find out they just had an entire staff turnover except for one employee. So we put in our order and not too long into waiting, the cook, which we found out to be the OWNER, starts getting onto the drive thru, trying to manage the whole place from the kitchen. Not much longer after that he is on the front line reaming out the new cashier, brand new cashier, it was her first night, until she cried.
We told the lady who seemed to be the manager or wife or someone that he would probably keep more employee's if he didn't treat his current ones so badly. She says "I know I know I've told him about this before but you can't tell the owner anything"
We decide to leave and as I get out in the car the cashier is crying hard enough to visibly see from outside I go back in and let her know it wasn't her fault but the owner's customer service skills were completely out of line. You never reprimand your staff in front of customers...especially as harshly as he did. As I was walking out to my car, my wife saw him throw his arms up at me saying "So What!"
They may have good food, I didn't stay around to try it. I won't spend one red cent in a place who treats their employees the way that place does. If they stay open for more than a year I will be surprised.
My first experience was phenominal! Flavors and variety and atmosphere! So when we were surfing restaurants.com and saw they had gift cards we thought "why not?"
I had the honey glazed ancho on black beans and rice, sweet corn, risotto and chili with a slice of pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. So I got to try a lot of different items. The ancho was good but my overall experience was just ok. I expected a lot of the "WoW" factor I got the first time I went. The majority of the food was bland and left me feeling just ok.
If someone was buying I would go again but I think I'll be dining elsewhere from here on out.
This place has a huge menu, great wait staff and I love the interior design. I recommend the salmon, it was delicious. And as for price, it was priced accordingly for a casual restaurant.
It started from the phone call. Very friendly and professional phone skills. My band shows up and we proceed to check in and we were greeted by a friendly housekeeping staff. How friendly? They took our luggage to our room, and when the housekeeper saw I had a baby, brought a pack and play and set it up with us even asking! I was floored. The desk staff is knowledgeable of the area and helped us find a spot with fat free yogurt and a good family Irish pub and grill.
They have a nice pool area and sauna. The rooms are clean and comfortable and in my opinion I would pass up the most luxurious hotel in Ft. Wayne to stay here again. I travel a lot and service this good is too rare and too far between.
I can honestly say out of the 13 years I've eaten here on what used to be a weekly basis I have only had one bad experience. 1 out of 100 ain't bad.
The food is good, not a great deal of selection but all that they do cook,they cook very well.
The owners are friendly and they keep their establishment clean.
If you want a cheap meal and food worth more than it's price. Go to Panda's, they won't let you down.
I usually frequent this restaurant once or twice a month. It is my wifes favorite and a common place for my church to go after service.
You can enjoy the sushi bar or go on back to the hibachi (table grill)
If you go for dinner the prices are a little salty however two people can get out of there for lunch for 20 bucks!
They have a wonderful selection of meats and seafood and sushi's. My favorite is being around a table with other people you may not know and starting conversation. Oh yeah and the WHITE SAUCE. I usually put enough on where the rice can't absorb anymore, then it's just rice.
Here's a helpful cheap tip, if you won't more food for less, get an extra order of rice. Most of the time I have to take it all home in a to go box.
So where is this restaurant? For anyone on the eastside it's that restaurant that's "never open" or has one car in the parking lot.
Don't let the weird hours and lack of heavy business fool you. If you catch it when it's open you really should stop by.
When we first got there it felt like it was forever to get food. I peered back in the kitchen and saw the owner hand making EVERYTHING! Pasta, salad, everything.
Had a really great conversation with him and his distaste for non authentic Italian food. And I agree.
If you're in a hurry, no need to stop by. But if you have the time to experience, in my opinion, the best Italian in Indy, you won't be disappointed.
