My husband and I go to Applebee's all the time because of the 2-for-20 deal, which is too good to beat. We have only been to this location once, but the experience was exceptional. Our waiter Craig was incredibly polite and made sure that everything we needed was taken care of. When we had concerns about the kid's cups spilling (our son is only 2 and not so skilled with a straw yet), he assured us it took a lot to spill them, and he was right. He also made sure to tell us that Monday's were Kid's Night and that our son would eat free off the kids menu when we said he was just going to share off our plate. We asked for well-done burgers, which they were pefect -- no pink at all, and almost crispy like you would find at a hole-in-the-wall diner. He brought us drinks before we knew we needed them, and always stopped to make sure we were okay or to play with our son as he was passing through our area. I would like to commend him as an EXCELLENT waiter, and really praise the S Glenstone Applebee's as a great family dining establishment. I would go back every night if I could!
discovered this place 6 mts ago or so . It's a nice little place, with good food, good prices and authentic cooking. have used the coupons on the back of price cutter market reciepts for buy one get one with the purchase of 2 drinks and that just cant be beat. love the chorizo chicken dish , the shrimp dinamita (hot ,Hot) , the steak dish that is breaded, then grilled. well I don't think I have disliked any thing. the plates are large portioned. the meat is allmost allways perfectly juicy and seasoned even though it has been pounded thin. the lady and her husband and inlaws? who run this are down to earth people who stop by to talk once in a while , the waitresses are nice and attentive, I like to practice my spanish for fun while I'm there. they have drinks, but I havent yet tried the margaritas. hummmm. I'm feeling thirsty. whens lunch ?
We went to the Tuscun Grill last night and had a great time. We were disappointed there was no blu cheese available BUT the ranch dressing turned out to be delicious. Made in house, it had a peppercorn flavor to it. The bean and rice soup was good and our KC strip steaks were grilled perfectly. We have gone there before and did not care for the pasta side dish so had the Italian potatoes this time. They were great. Our service was EXCELLENT. Our sever did not bug us or interrupt conversation to constantly see if we were doing OK. I did not get her name but she is a real asset to the resturant. I know the polished floor is easier to keep clean but I think it would had an atmosphere of warmth if they would put down carpet. The food and service was excellent and we will go back.
FANTASTIC - This is by far the best resturant and i garentee you will be addidicted!! My husband and I got the ribeye when we went.....from presentation to service to taste it was all a 10!!!! The atmosphere is awesome the service is awesome the food is out of site...someone else reviewed it should be in NYC...and yeah thats right this is not a resturant experience u expect in springfield mo -- expect to pay about 30 per person.... absolutley worth every penny..and not mention they have signiture drinks that are awesome.....theyre signature margarita is like a mango mix of idk....fantasticness...I love it and everyone i know who has eaten at ocean zen feels the same...if you havent been u def should try it....there will be no dispointment i garentee that!!!!!
A few days ago I had a great breakfast at Tubby's. The Lumberjack breakfast filled me up and it sure was tasty!!! Fried eggs over medium cooked to perfection. There was no problem substituting biscuits and gravy for the ham slab. I like ham but I was in the mood for biscuits and gravy. The pancakes were BIG and tasty as was everything I ate. I have only had one meal at this place with its new ownership. I believe the new owners have done a fine job of renewing the old. I will be returning in the future. I will likely order a smaller breakfast offering since I was just too stuffed with that Lumberjack breakfast!!!! I must admit I am getting older and unable to eat as much as in the past.
Living in the Atlanta area, we are familiar with many great restaurants. We were in the Springfield area visiting family and this restaurant intrigued us. We decided to try it--great decision! The restaurant itself is amazing--the decor was unique and so inviting. We especially loved the booths downstairs. We felt like we were in our own private space. The food was outstanding and so reasonably priced. We had several dishes but especially loved the Tequenos and the Drunken Goat Seco--so unlike anything we had ever tasted before. We met the owners who are as friendly and welcoming as family. If you are in the area, this is definitely worth the trip. You won't be disappointed!
An older casual restaurant near 44 on West Chestnut - Don't come here if your on a diet & Don't come here unless you really hungry....... This place is known for the great food with the best prices in the Springfield and you get a lot of good food for the money... A full dinner will cost 7 to 9 bucks - I am not sure what the most expensive dinner on the menu even is ? 10 maybe 11 bucks, I never got it because I cant eat all of just the standard ones.... Even though it is 30 mile trip from our house it is worth it..... BUT When were are going to the airport or bringing in a group of friends in we never miss a chance to stop and eat at Ali's...

There's a lot of "hole-in-the-wall" BBQ places in Springfield - Buckingham's, Pappy's, Crosstown, etc. - all pretty good. And then there are the higher end places like Famous Dave's and Rib Crib. Holler Boys stands up in both taste and quality to all of these while being slightly cheaper. Their meats and sauce don't set them apart from the others (I didn't try their ribs) but they are tasty. Highlights are the homemade fries and fried pickles. They don't have seating so plan for take-out. Certainly worth dropping in if you want some quick, decent BBQ to take home on the cheap.
Full disclosure, I am a huge Ruby Tuesday fan. I have dined at Ruby Tuesday Restaurants all over the country. Unfortunately, my last home was no where around a Ruby Tuesday. I am currently staying in Springfield and the N. Glenstone RT is close to my mother's home. I frequently go to RT for a late lunch. The price, entrees, salad bar and service is great. It is a casual restaurant and there is no feeling of needing to dress up or any crap like that. You can just go in, enjoy a meal and your party's company. Nice, casual place to dine by yourself, friends, or family.
I have been going to this restraunt since they opened. The food is magnificent. They have won NUMEROUS awards for there hot wings alone. They have a mixture of mexican and american food and some of the best fajitas in town. The price is great all meals under 20 and more than a person could eat. My insider tip ..go for breakfast and have the Springfield pile-up.....its awesome and like the menu says its what the big boys eat. They have a bar at the other end and the atmosphere is great. And for the record my young kids love the pancakes. Don't pass this up or you will be sorry.
