Re: “Lucky's Sandwich Company

If I am going to order some unhealthy french fries they better be good. If they are going to be on the sandwich they better be really good. The fries the came on my sandwich were so undercooked -- it ruined the experience. Other than that the experience was good. I saw the potential for one of the best sandwiches I have had in a long time -- soft and fresh bread, good grilled meats, melted cheese, fries and cole slaw all piled high. As soon as they figure out how to cook fries, this place will do great business.

Re: “Maza

Most entrees are around 10 bucks, but we never made it past the appetizer sampler plates. We made a meal for three out of them and they were all great. The service was very good. Our waiter would check on us from afar and if it looked like we needed something he would approach us. They explained everything to us about all 20ish appetizers. Since it was our first time to Maza they provided us with a complimentary dessert. We will definitely be back.

Re: “Twisted Spoke

Good quality food, time after time. The staff may not look like the friendliest, but this is where the phrase - "don’t judge a book by its cover" comes into play. Don’t pass up the legendary Bloody Mary with the beer chaser.

This could have been the worst dining experience I have ever had. It took an hour and a half to get our entrees and when they arrived they were cold and under-cooked. The waiter made too small of an attempt to correct the situation by only offering us dessert, which we did not want. Had the place been busy I could understand the food taking a long time to prepare, but the place was empty. Now I know why. Do not waste your time and money at this restaurant!

What a wonderful dining experience! We had never been there before and did not really know what to expect. As soon as you sat down the water and bread and butter arrived. I am not sure what was in the butter, but it was awesome! We started with the ceviche which was a little sweeter than I was used to, but the three kinds of fish they used melted in your mouth. We went with the recommendations by our very patient waitress. I had the blackened duck, cooked to perfection. The other entrée was the halibut, which was so tender and flaky, mmmmm good. Both entrée came with jalapeno mashed potatoes. Sadly enough we were too full to taste any of the made from scratch by the hostess desserts. Next time we will skip the appetizer to make sure we have room for the dessert.
