    The pasta here are LOADED with oil and they must use 50% fat beef for the meatballs but they are swimming in fat run off. I've tried the pastas 3 times and all marinara ones are always too oily and salty. I hear this place has good pizza but I have yet to try it. The service here can be very flakey and you'll be rushed out if it's a busy nite.

    This place jacked up their prices after they redid the rest. Some dishes as much as 4 bucks. The portions aren't the best and are heavily in salt. I order take out from time to time but they treat you like viet cong sometimes and are very abrasive.

    When I go to diners, I stick to the one thing that's safe, you know is fresh, and hard to mess up.....eggs. The silver star makes a BIG garden omlette which has cooked veggies in it and not the raw kind some throw in.

    Man there is NO meat in these things. You have to ask for double meat to get any sort of meat filling you have craving. Chicken cutlets are pounded so flat it's like just eating more bread. I only go here if I'm super desperate as its very expensive and you don't get anything for 6.50. You'll be hungry in 20 mins....if you are a little overweight it will be 5.

    The food is although expensive is very tastey and has some kick to it. The guac is a bit disappoints (this Dos Camino's has better) but the entries are away containing new items and flavors. The service was quick and the place was busy. My only complaint is that it was very loud in there and it was tough to hear people next to you. In the summer they open the bay windows but cut the AC as a result so if you are in the back it may get a little warm.

    This place does have good food, I'm not going to argue with the others. Their pasta's are very flavorful and not in a ton of oil. The outdoor patio is nice but with plastic chairs and tables a little low brow for those dishes they are charging 30 bucks for. You figure they'd upgrade.

    This has the best pizza in the city...however there is a catch. Delivery is not the best, sometimes it gets there fast and sometimes not. I always heat up the pizza in the oven and I recommend the same as it's a little tough and I like my pizza well done.\r \r In addition to the well done style, some times it is and others it's not. Outside of this minor issue, there is one more....they don't know how to cut a pizza clean, some pieces are huge and others tiny. Someone needs to go to pizza cutting 101.

    The food (I got the chicken taco's) were burnt chicken chunks. I couldnt' finish it and I love any type of mexican. The basket you get prior to the food of plantano's and chips are the best and the salsa is good.\r \r Margaritas are nothing but sugar water and booze, not much flavor. The mix they use is a little dirty off a old school salad dressing pourer. Who knows what's been in that thing.

    This place is a decent neighborhood bar with a great beer selection. there are a few problems with the joint. AC's are over a bunch of the tables which means you'll be an ice box in about point 2 seconds. The other is in the back it's not really AC'ed well.\r \r The pub food is decent and run of the mill.
