Came in with a group for drinks and snacks at about 9:30 pm on a Friday night. The place stunk like rancid grease, but worse, the wait staff were awful. They conspicuously ignored us for about 15 minutes, and then had the audacity to lecture us about coming in too late! What nerve. "We'll serve you ONE drink, but that's it. We're closing the bar at 10." Unbelievable. (And it ain't like we were being rowdy or unpleasant. Our average age is about 42.)
We left without ordering, and went to 13 Coins up by the airport, where we spent about $300 bucks in food, drink and tips, and were treated like royalty. Bahama Breeze is a no-fly zone forever.
Why do I like this place? Because they carded me on my 43rd birthday!
Tip for eating at Red Robin: Ask for a salad instead of fries. No extra charge. (Unfortunately, the salad has shrunk in the past couple of years. Ah, well.) And the bottomless strawberry lemondade is a real bargain.
My parents and siblings are crazy about this place, but I find it a bit pricey and uncomfortable. You've gotta fight for a table, and it has the ambiance of a cafeteria. And there are never enough wait staff for the huge crowd that eats here.
Nevertheless, the food is good, and the bread is awesome. And apparently, I'm the only person who doesn't understand the appeal, because everyone else raves over it.
There are a thousand teriyaki joints in Kent. This particular restaurant is in the East Hill Safeway parking lot, two doors down from Pizza Hut.
It came under new ownership about a year ago, and what a great change. They're the only teriyaki place I've ever visited that serves brown rice upon request, and at no extra charge.
It's consistantly good teriyaki. The place is always clean. Great variety, cheerful decor, good menu. Chinese food is good, but the Japanese stuff is amazing.
The Bento box is a real bargain. The Las Vegas roll -- tempura coated with cream cheese, veggies and a little grilled eel -- sounds gross but is so good I'm drooling thinking about it. Oh, and the garlic shrimp! Oh. Oh. Oh.
The owner and his wife are unbelievably sweet, and they're always bringing out extra -- free -- goodies, just because we're always raving over the food.
This is the best teriyaki place in King County, hands down.
They get two stars, rather than one, because at least the people who work here aren't nasty.
Twice now I've tried to shop here. Yuck. Dirty, apparently used, merchandise at full retail price. I don't get it. The name is right -- charging full retail for thrift-store quality IS stupid, Why would anyone shop here?
Sunday meetings at 9, 11 and 1. Weeknight youth meetings Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, usually at 7 pm. Family activities most Fridays and Saturdays.
Christian worship, a real community where people work together to build families and faith.
It's a restaurant supply store with restaurant-sized merchandise. Good prices for cookware, and the world's best -- and cheapest -- collection of those flavored syrups you use in beverages.
Love this store, but the carts are useless, the place is dark, and the merchandise is huge. Shopping here is an adventure.
I WANT to give Winco five stars, but the abysmal customer service, and the fact that you have to bag your own groceries, makes it tough to recommend them for anything other than small purchases.
Yeah, they've got the largest selection and the best prices. Yeah, they don't charge a bogus "membership" fee.
But they're certainly not handicapped accessible or senior citizen friendly, and don't even THINK about getting through the checkout stand without a team -- one person unloads the cart, two people bag and cart groceries, and one person pays and deals with coupons. It's a madhouse, and you get nasty glares if you try to manage the whole checkout process on your own.
Our family moved to Kent in 1965, and back then, you bought your groceries either at Foss or at Johnny's on the corner of Benson and 256th (where Walgreen's is now situated).
Today, Foss's deli is terrific, with fabulous sandwiches and good service. The store is still old and creaky, but shopping there is just as much fun as it was when i was a kid.
Can't rave enough about Safeway's customer service. From the floral to the deli to the meat department, these people nearly put Nordstrom's to shame. I get brick cheese on sale in the cheese aisle, and ask the deli people to slice it for me. No problem! The meat people are well trained and have good advice about cuts of meat and cooking methods. Ask any employee about the location of an item, and they'll drop what they're doing to show it to you. Do these guys work on commission?
Oh, and the prices? Sure beats QFC!
