    The Breakfast Club: Great Breakfast

    by HELEN Written Apr 30, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So many choices on the menu, and luckily I got to try several. - the beauty of a number of people in your party willing to share. Everything tasted amazing! And did I mention the bloody marys? Fantastic! The mimosas, made with fresh squeezed orange juice, are great and the salty dogs are worth a try as well.

    Favorite Dish: The french toast is to die for!

    Olive and Ivy: The Scene

    by HELEN Written Apr 30, 2012

    This restaurant is HUGE side with a large outdoors area. Great for parties. They have several private rooms to offer for your party. One small negative is that they only allow you tow have a set menu for parties of 10 or more. They have 3 set menu options $35, $40, and $45 per person. All three are pretty good, and the restaurant doesn't mind being flexible if you wanted to adjust the set menu a little.

    Favorite Dish: Stuffed dates appetiser is amazing!

    The Mission: Tasty Margaritas

    by HELEN Written Apr 26, 2012

    I would come again not for the food but for the scene and margaritas. The much raved table side guacamole is fine and fresh but not quite as memorable as I would have hoped. The portions are small and almost everything that we had was just so so.

    Favorite Dish: The mango margarita was amazing.

    Starbucks

    Like Starbucks' no matter where I am. Their goodies and coffee are always great, one can depend on their quality. Also it's nice to try new & various flavors to their coffee. Their coffeehouse atmosphere is always nice too.

    The Cove Trattoria: Cute Italian Restaurant

    by newsphotogirl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a great place. We didn't plan on coming here. First we tried Houstons but the wait was an hour and a half! So we tried Ruths Chris and the wait was even longer. As a last resort we tried Roy's but they were booked the entire evening. We walked by the Trattoria and said "Oh, let's just eat here." It's a small restaurant but it has a lot of charm. I felt like I could have been in any restaurant in Florence. The manager and the wait staff were great. Very attentive but not annoying. The food was delicious. My husband had the penne which was good. I had the lobster ravioli which was even better. I thought this place was a great find.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster Ravioli

    The Sugar Bowl: The Sugar Bowl

    In 1958, Jack Huntress converted an auto
    repair store into a soda fountain-restaurant
    called the Sugar Bowl.

    This delightful eatery is still operated by the
    Huntress family and is a popular stop for
    visitors and residents alike ....

    ohh, and be sure to bring your sweet tooth

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Great place to stop in at the end of the day for some
    ice cream servedin an old fashioned ice cream parlor
    setting even with counter service.
    The staff and service was great, they all made you feel
    welcome to the parlor.

    Its vintage pink color scheme, inside and out, is a
    treat for the eyes, a happy reminder of the Sugar Bowl's
    beginnings in the 1950s as a town soda fountain.

    Have a delightfully old-fashioned grilled cheese sandwich
    or BLT sided by an "extra-luscious" malt, enriched with
    marshmallow and fudge or caramel sauce ......

    Favorite Dish: Mary is the "ice cream officiadao", and has
    sampled many of their great offerings from
    a cup of ice cream, to a cone, a old fashion
    hot fudge sundea and of course, an old
    fashion banana split at the counter.
    Whatever you decide on, you'll love it also .........

    Schlotzsky's Deli: Schlotzsky's Deli

    In 1971, a small shop on South Congress
    Avenue in Austin, Texas was home to a
    single, one-of-a-kind sandwich. The menu
    was succinct: one delectable sandwich
    composed of a unique combination of
    premium meats, cheeses, and marinated
    black olives served on hot Schlotzsky's
    sourdough bread .....

    Favorite Dish: Nice place to eat either lunch or a light dinner
    offering a variety of fresh baked breads for
    your sandwiches.

    Mary had: Angus Beef / Provalone Cheese with
    horseradish sauce on a wheat roll
    (see picture)

    Al had: Angus Pastami / swiss cheese on a
    dark rye roll
    (see picture)

    **** NOTE ****
    Pickle comes with it, but you must ask for it

    We enjoyed it, and would rate it: 6 out of 10

    Simple Chef Cafe: Best Salads on the Planet

    by jsav Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Outside of restaurant - notice logo on back of red

    This local neighborhood restaurant is a real find. The owner is an executive chef with experience in five-star five-diamond resorts, but he wanted to get out of the rat race. This is a place where he cooks for his neighbors. He sat down with us and explained the menu, told us that absolutely everything (except the bread) is made fresh in his restaurant. He has about eight different salads, all crisp ingredients, the salad dressings mixed for each salad. Most importantly, the prices are all under $10.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite is something he calls yappin yolies bread salad. It is a mixed spring greens with a balsamic dressing, tossed with triangles of sage-brushed grilled garlic bread. Yummmm....

    Elements at Sanctuary: Want a Romantic Dinner with Great Food?

    by ArizonaExpert Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For our 5th anniversary, I took my wife to Elements at Sanctuary resort. Knowing what to ask for on a special occasion, I reserved a booth near the windows that look over Paradise Valley. What a view! Watching the sunset from our seats was spectacular, and the lights below after that were dazzling.

    The food and service were equally spectacular. We opted for a slow, one course at a time meal, and the staff obliged. My wife is also a vegetarian, but finding items to share was not a big problem. Both the soup and salads we selected were outstanding (sorry I forgot which ones).

    She had Tappia and I had a lamb chop for the main course, and once again, the place did not disappoint.

    Dessert was fantastic and we just enjoyed each other and the view.

    I would rate this as one of the top 3 meals of the year for us, and a must go place for romantic, special, or anytime dinner!

    Favorite Dish: We couldn't find anything that was bad!

    Roy's: Heaven on a plate

    by EllenH Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    melting chocolate souffle

    This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.
    On the recommendation of the owner/chef restaurant where I work and a co-worker as well, I decided to splurge a little and take the family to Roy's. It is very nice fine dining, they call it Hawian fusion, and they use the freshest ingredients available. The appetizers were outstanding, potstickers with chipotle cream, bbq baby back ribs that the meat fell right off of, shrimp with wasabi cocktail sauce. The entrees were also amazing, mahi mahi with lobster butter and pork pot roast with teriyaki sauce that fell apart it was so tender. Reservations highly recommended.

    Favorite Dish: The most amazing part was dessert. Melting chocolate souffle, you have to order it with your meal because it is made to order. The timing of the courses in this restaurant was perfect and the service was outstanding.

    Karsen's Grill: Old Town Bar/Grill

    It was good and the beer cold. I had Philly cheese steak sandwich for $7.50, and Micky had quesadilla for $8 and it was big. They do not specialize in food, as much as ion serving the beer/drinks. It is a local hang out for sports fans and friends to get together. There may be only 40 seats to chose from; small and neighborhood feel.

    Favorite Dish: The burrito was large and good, and stuffed with ample pork meat

    Tavern Bar/Grill: Local Hang Out for Good Food/Drink

    The burger and fries were very good, and the burger is 1/2 pound. Cost of most items are $7-10, and beer is $3 a pint. It is bar food fare

    Favorite Dish: Well-why not have the hamburgers? It seems to be what the majority of people order, and it is good.

    Rokerj-Richardson's: Richardson-Rokerj is Coming Back

    by BruceDunning Updated Dec 28, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Logo of the restaurants
    2 more images

    The menu has breakfast from 7-4PM and prices are $10-20. Most items are $15-30 for lunch. Try dinner out for around $30-50 range for steaks & chops. The menu if filled with so much to choose from that it is mind boggling. It includes Rokerj and Richardson's items combined and takes up about 6 pages of food selections.
    The inside was dark and too unattractive for my suitability.
    Richardson's burned down a couple of years ago, and recently added its meal fare to Rokerj while they are rebuilding another restaurant close by.

    Favorite Dish: We had the flat bread pizza type. It was good, but not outstanding. Or companions had appetizer of sausages and a salad to split between them. The food was okay, at best, and much overrated given the name and following of locals to flock here to see/be seen?
    So I say the flat bread was our favorite-the price was a factor since I do not like getting ripped off for a meager and mediocre meal

    Black Forest Haus: Old Time Authentic German Food

    It was fantastic and authentic German fare. The schnitzels range about $13-18, and other specialties are $12-20 price. I also got sausages next door as well as cheese and black bread for $4 a loaf for my daily lunches when hiking. They were all hand made and the bread was super

    Favorite Dish: The Bauren Schmaus was great, and plentiful for sure. The Germans do not get stingy on serving sizes. This was roast pork, smoked pork and beef roulade. Side dumplings and bread are for me. Price was $15

    Chicago Hamburger Company: Chicago Hot Dog/Slider Heaven

    by BruceDunning Updated Dec 28, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sign on Indian School Rd.

    The menu was good enough to have some of it all. The deluxe hot dogs are $4-5 range, and the sliders 92 cents, but the burgers of larger 1/3 to 2/3 sizes is $4-6.55 prices. Fries are $2-3 more, and then drinks are about $2. So, the eat price would average about $10 by the time you get satisfied. That then gets to be high end for a fast food type.
    If you feel like competing with White Castle fame of throwing down a bunch of cheap onion tasting burgers about the size of a half dollar, try 10 sliders for $8.50 after 4PM each day

    Favorite Dish: I liked the 2/3 pound burger a lot; tasty, and the fires were good.
