    The folks at Byers Volkswagon are outstanding! In addition to getting a fabulous car, the experience of buying it was fast, and everyone my wife and I met at the dealership was professional and fun to deal with.

    One of our biggest concerns was whether the car would fit in our tightly packed garage. The salesman, Don Moss, suggested we drive it home as part of the test drive to make sure the car would fit.

    When my wife returned two days later to buy the car, Byers didn't have the exact car we wanted in stock, but the sales manager found one at another dealership.

    On the day it was to be delivered, my wife needed to be home to wait for an appliance repair person, and Don Moss was kind enough to deliver the car (spotlessly clean and waxed!) to our home.

    She hadn't bought a new car since 1995, and Don explained all the features clearly in a way that didn't make her feel stupid. He also obtained good prices for us on the accessories.

    Tony Cook handled the sales paperwork. In addition to getting my wife through the process quickly and competently, he did her a favor. After she left, she couldn't get her car key to turn in the ignition. She went back into the dealership, and Tony was kind enough to come out and get her car started.

    Having the accessories installed also went very well. In addition to doing a good job, they gave my wife a loaner, had her car washed and took time to go over the new accessories with her.

    An excellent dealership!

  • Golden Delight Bakery 1516 Bethel Rd, Columbus, OH 43220 (614) 459-6888

    After being blown away by Golden Delight's strawberry cake at an event, we bought two half-sheet cakes for a big birthday party.

    The birthday cakes were a big hit, with several guests coming back for seconds. We served the strawberry cake, with comes vanilla whipped cream icing, garnished with strawberries and kiwi, a terrific flavor combination. The second cake was chocolate with milk chocolate whipped cream icing. Both cakes were made with sponge cake. In addition to being impressively beautiful, the cakes were flavorful without being too sweet or too rich.

    Customer service was excellent, and the cakes were delivered on time. We will definitely get use this bakery again!

  • Yoder's 3434 Bahia Vista St, Sarasota, FL 34239 (941) 955-7771

    3 stars Posted on 01/02/2012 02:19pm

    After reading positive online reviews that mentioned low prices, we had to try Yoder's. The atmosphere and menu are reminiscent of Cracker Barrel, but the food isn't as good.

    If you like huge portions and lots of fat, sugar and salt, then you will probably enjoy Yoder's.

    I used to live in Sarasota, and Phillipi Creek was one of my favorite places to eat. My wife and I ate their recently while vacationing in Sarasota, and it was lovely to see that Phillipi Creek still serves excellent food in a fun setting.

    The owner of our vacation rental suggested my wife and I stop by Patrick's for burgers, and we were very glad we did. A fabulous meal for only $6.50, and eating outdoors was delightful.

    My wife and I had a vacation rental in the Laurel Park section of Sarasota, near downtown. On the advice of the property owner, we rented bicycles from Ryder Bikes. The bicycles were very comfortable and worked perfectly. The cost for three days was $60. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

    Downtown Sarasota is bicycle friendly, and we had a grand time riding to Whole Foods, downtown, the bayfront park, the library, Marie Selby Botanical Garden, Hillview and the nearby Tolle Arts District.

    When we return to Sarasota, we will definitely rent bikes from Ryder Bikes again.

    The capuccino was excellent, and the house-made carmels and chocolate-covered candies were incredible! Service was prompt and friendly, the coffee shop is attractive and clean. We will stop by again.

    My wife and I have had our alterations done here for many years, and they do an excellent job. They hired a new tailor recently, but she is just as good as the ones who were there for years and years.

    I took advantage of an unseasonably warm November day by having lunch on Abuela's patio.

    After munching on the obligatory Mexican chips and salsa, I ordered the Tilapia Veracruz ($10). The dish consisted of sauteed tilapia, scallops and shrimp; tomatoes, roasted poblano pepper and olives. The dish also came with vegetables and cilantro rice. The meal was well seasoned (not too spicy) and well cooked (veggies had crunch).

    With the 70-degree weather, the patio was a delightful lunch spot, and I noticed they also have ceiling heaters for cooler weather. On balance, Abuelo's is a nice, inexpensive dining spot.
