Kelcy's Restaurant Tehachapi, CA
Kelcy's is a good family restaurant. Very popular with locals and the daily specials are usually worth asking for. The local Rotary Club meets here as well as other groups. Food and service are very good. Walls are decorated with hundreds of local photos and historic memorobalia. Home cooked type meals in an authentic home town restaurant. Close enough to the railroad tracks to hear and watch the trains go through town.
Zuni Grill San Antonio, TX
According to their website , located at the foot of the historic Hugman Bridge, Zuni Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner at the most picturesque bend in the Riverwalk, seven days a week. Inspired by the flavors of the American Southwest, Zuni’s menu offers something for everyone. Savor the spicy bite of Scorpion Shrimp Stuffed Red Chiles, and the satisfying smoky flavor of Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas. And, we’re the bright-eyed choice for breakfast, serving daily at 7:30, adding a bounteous buffet on the weekends. Zuni’s open, airy spaces and cypress-shaded riverside patio seating offer scenic views of the Riverwalk. Open daily for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. My wife and I split a couple of appetizers (Blue Corn Nachos - 8.95, Veggie Promo - 6.95), an order of steak fajitas (17.95) and a marvelous flan (6.95). It was a wonderful meal and we had a difficult time easting so much food. Our server (Wooten) was prompt, attentive and genuinely interested in us and our visit. The food was significantly better than the Casa Rio on the Riverwalk - see my review of that faciity, also on
Apple Annie's Tulare, CA
The food was okay, but not spectacular. service was a little slow and not very attentive. It is really an old fashioned road-side diner (a little too far from the road side, but well hyped by the traditional road side signs). With 2 stars meaning poor, I wouldn't go that far, but it really isn't close to a 4-star restaurant. Menu was limited.
Casa Rio San Antonio, TX
An average place for Tex Mex along the Riverwalk. Beautiful views, friendly and prompt service, but the food is only so-so and the prices may be reasonable for the Riverwalk, but are high for the food served. I ordered the Tortilla soup (4.50) and it was okay, but rather thing. My wife and I ordered the meat-filled Chili Relleno (10.25) and they were too big to finish, but nothing to write home about. Overall a pretty average-to-fair restaurant.
Rusty Duck Sacramento, CA
Recommended by our hotel consierge, we decided to give the Rusty Duck a shot. It exceeded our expectations. Waitstaff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. We ordered the Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes appetizer and my wife ordered the regular cut Prime Rib dinner and I ordered the Ribs/Duck Combo dinner. Portions were most generous. We managed to empty our plates and fill ourselves, but there was no room for dessert - and their desserts looked fabulous. We loved the food, the atmospehere, and watching boats on the river in the moonlight. Highly recommended for a romantic dinner for two, but save room for their desserts!
La Casita Weaverville, CA
Their menu says: "The best Mexican food in Northern California." If it isn't THE best it is certainly ONE of the best. I tend to rate most Mexican restaruants by their Chile Relleno. La Casitas was amongst the best. Their obligatory tostatas were served with a choice of mild, medium, or hot salsa. I chose the hot and although it wasn't so hot my wife couldn't eat it, it was still hot enough to satisfy my desire for spicy. Portions were generous and the meal was excellent. The ambiance was average but the food more than made up for that. It seemed a little strange having a Laotian chef come take my order, but he and his wife were the owners and the only other employee was a Hispanic waitress. Overall, a very satisfying dining experience.
Mountain Village Lodge Stanley, ID
The Mountain Village Restaurant in Stanley, Idaho is located in the heart of the Sawtooth Mountains. The log building is rustic with an authentic mountain decor and atmosphere. The menu was somewhat limited and my wife ordered "steak fingers" and I ordered a top sirloin. My steak was a little tough but cooked as I ordered it. The vegetables were okay, but nothing special. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. Better than I expected for the only place in town. Two meals with water, no dessert and tax came to $31 with tip.
Oliveti's Des Plaines, IL
I can hardly believe the disparity in the ratings on this restaurant. We had reservations for a party of sixteen and the place was clean, service a little slow (shortstaffed) but very accomodating. Tony was our waiter and he was pleasant and entertaining. The decour was a little old, but very genuinely Italiano. My veal Tuscany was outstanding and I couldn't have been happier with my meal choice. Others raved about their seafood, their pasta and their appetizers. Those who chose wine with their meals were most pleased with both the red and white selections. We didn't feel rushed and the locals in our party all commented that they frequent the place. Sixteen in the party and every meal prepared as ordered with total satisfaction and without a single complaint. What more could you ask for? Parking was limited but the food was great.
Arceo's Family Mexican Restaruant Baker City, OR
A wonderful and unassuming diner, close to I-84. The dining room appears to be two old diner cars appended to an existing building. The waitstaff were extremely friendly and attentive. The menu is remarkably diverse, yet Mexican. I ordered the Tres Amigos, chicken, shrimp and real crab cooked with onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and covered with jack cheese and a touch of wihe. It was delicious. My spouse ordered a frajita salad with charcoal-broiled steak and simply raved about it. We each ordered a side Chile Relleno and could not finish our meals. The obligatory tostatas with home made salsa were delicious and the waitstaff replaced the basket each time it got "low" - they didn't let it get empty. There is a marvelous painting that runs along the outside walls at the ceiling, like a long two-foot wide mural. It is incredibly well done and detailed. A fun and filling place to eat, very family friendly and delicious food. A great value and great food.
Los Mariachis Boise, ID
This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. It is authentic and not a chain Mexican food wanna-be. The prices are reasonable, service is quick, atmosphere great, and the food is mouthwatering and fulfilling. I particularly recommend the lunch buffet (6.95 M - F) and sit where you can watch the corn tortillas being made, hand pressed and cooked. My only problem is that I usually eat too much so I am uncomfortable on the way home!
Sizzler Boise, ID
Established in California in 1958, this all-American chain is decked out with stone accents, dark woods, and classic photography that hearkens back to the restaurant's beginnings. The original menu featured four steak options; today, guests choose from steaks, burgers and sandwiches, St. Louis-style pork ribs, and signature "sizzlin' platters" of garlic-herb chicken or grilled seafood. The famous salad bar offers more than 90 items, including desserts and hot appetizers and is one of the freshest in Boise. I love the full rack of ribs (14.99) and add the salad bar for just 3.79 more.
Tepanyaki Japanese Restaurant Boise, ID
Looking for a special night out with my wife, we decided to try this wonderful Japanese Steak House. We ordered the House Deluxe Feast for Two (36.95). It was scrumptious and worth every penny. We went early and had our chef to ourselves. As they get busier, the parties are seated together around each Tepanyaki (grill). A little more reserved than some Japanese steak chefs, ours was still very skilled and it was most fun to watch him prepare out meal before our eyes. We had to struggle to finish the meal, it was so good and so filling. Overall a marvelous dining experience.
Cici's Pizza Matthews, NC
Great selection of pizza, salad, pasta and deserts. The price makes it right for a family to either eat in or take out. If they don't have the type of pizza that you want on the buffet they will make it for you. Wow, now that's service.
Best Western Mardi Gras Inn Las Vegas, NV
Darn good food for a small hotel restaurant. I would have given them 4 starts, but the non-smoking section is too close to slot machines where the smokers slip stream aggravated my asthma. My wife and I ate several meals here, including their Steak and Lobster special for 12.95 and their T-bone steak dinner for the same price. Jason is an excellent waiter and was always willing to do something extra to please his customers. Dining is a little noisy with the large screen sports TV at one end of the dining room and other sports TVs all above the bar, but the food was worth the experience.
Bally's$Las Vegas Restaurants The Coffee Las Vegas, NV
Well, I have to respectfully disagree with some of the other reviewers' comments. I had breakfast on 11/8/05 and waitservice was prompt, but the meal delivery was a little slow. I ordered the SW Special ($9.50) and an orange juice ($4.00) and they added a 2.30 gratuity to the meal, even though the top of my receipt clearly states, "Gratuity Not Included." Adding 1.05 tax and rouding up, it was a $17.00 breakfast. Although it was good, it was way overpriced and only average in comparison to other hotels I've stayed at and eaten in around Las Vegas.
Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas, NV
In a city built on fantasy, Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is an original. It is fully licensed by and an exact reproduction of Hofbräuhaus München, originally commissioned by Duke Wilhelm V in 1589. Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas can seat more than 800 guests in two distinct settings, the beer hall or “Schwemme, ” seats 380 guests, while the beer garden or “Biergarten, ” seats 430. The beer served daily at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is brewed in Munich according to the over 400-year-old Bavarian purity law. For specific information checkout their website at: You can discover their history, make reservations, or order online. (702) 853-BEER (2337) Although their claim to fame is their beer, having lived in Germany for nearly 4 years, my wife and I were "homesick" for a real German meal and we were not disappointed. My wife ordered the Dinner Special (a kind of jagerschnitzle for $16.95) and I ordered the HB Platter ($18.50) - a sampler of several of their specialties. For dessert we tried a Black Forest Cake and it was even better than I remembered from Germany! Great food, great service, German style open seating, Bavarian music and dancing, not to mention the beer. Certainly worth a visit and off street parking available.
Wingers Clearfield Clearfield, UT
This was my first Winger's, but it certainly won't be my last! I had driven by it many times, thinking it was just a "wings joint." It is, but it is so much more. Their Fire Sauce was fantastic! Very flavorful and hot, but not as hot as I expected. I have eaten their wings, their riblets platter, their fish and chips, enjoyed their complimentary popcorn, and never had a disappointing bite of anything. An order of 16 wings to go was only $11.99. For a special occassion or a real indulgence try a piece of their "ashpalt pie." Great food, great service, great fun, great place for family or on the go dining.
Winger's Elko, NV
This is only the second Winger's I have visited. It was as good as the first. Outstanding food, good service, a fun and relaxed atmosphere, generous portions, and their own Original and Fire sauces. Their complimentary popcorn holds kids at bay until the food arrives. Sodas with complimentary refills are common, but here they kept bringing them without me ever asking. Can't be beat for an inexpensive lunch or just as an alternative to burgers and fast food places. Great place for family dining.
Biltoki Elko, NV
Not the best Basque restaruant in town and certainly not the worst. I prefer the Star Hotel, but the food was good and the service attentive. The place was nearly empty when we visited so I don't know how they would be with a crowd. Traditional meal, served in three or four courses with the entree being steak or seafood as a rule.
German Haus Restaurant Mountain Home, ID
I have driven by this place many times without stopping as their hours are limited. But was I ever pleasantly surprised when I finally got to eat there! <br> Meals are as authentic as any Gasthaus I ate in during my 3.5 years in Heidelberg! Delicious and authentically prepared schnitzels, wurts, spaetzle, kraut, and so on. Somewhat limited menu, but everything is made to order from scratch. GREAT place for a romantic interlude or a fammily meal. Prices are very reasonable and the food, beer and wine lists are notable. <br> Lunch hours: Tues thru Sat 11am to 4pm <br> Dinner hours; Fri and Sat (only) 5pm - 8pm
