    Not only did we have our game on our own great big flat screen HD tv - but every other NFL games was just a glance away. The bartender on the microphone (I think his name was Brian?) seems to run the show - he made sure everyone in the place knew how to find their teams and was super helpful when my friend asked him to get the Colts game on near where we were seated.

    It has a nice ambience yet quiet. To date I have not found better. Less grease than most thai places. You MUST order the fresh spring rolls as an appetizer.. unbelievable. Great green curry as well and soups. They sometimes have a sashimi appetizer that is amazing as well...

    The toppings at this joint are pretty top notch, but it's the crust that turns their pizza's into real winners. I recommend ordering, leaving, then picking up, as there's not much atmosphere to speak of.

    They only take cash but they will serve you up a good homecooked meal straight from the 1950s for under $8! Cute building--its been there for 50+ years I think! I really like it here. VERY low key atmosphere...a place to go when you don't have on any makeup and are wearing last nights clothes...

    You'll find this authentic piece of Jamaica on an inconspicuous block of Broadway. But don't worry, the curry chicken, and the curry goat, among other dishes, are worth your venture into the relative culinary unknown.

    Not bad Thai food, although the ambiance doesn't exist. Curries are ok. It's basically a take-out place with a few seats. There's only street parking. Customer service has been adequate.

    This is a great mexican restaurant in the middle of a commercial zone. Don't be intimidated by the rough exterior. Inside you'll find excellent and spicy carne asada burrito's. For something different, try the spinach burrito.
