I've eaten at the original Uno's in Chicago and the deep dish they serve at this Uno's is pretty close in my opinion. I like it. Everyone I've taken to Uno's in Fort Worth has enjoyed the food.

To start off I would say that we didn't know what to expect from Baileys. My husband and I really like the higher end steak houses such as Nick and Sams, Capital Grille, Pappas...etc. The decor is beautiful and stunning, I was really taken back by it. We went to the bar first for some drink…

1st, I must say that my review is influenced by the environment and not jut the food itself, which was likely influenced by the store front possibly not being complete construction wise? The food: Ordered a Ex Lrg thin NY cheese pizza. I'm very picky, and there's only a select handful of places around I consider to come close to real NY pizza, and to my surprise, the pie from Cha Cha was actually pretty good - makes my short list of places I consider acceptable. The only problem with the pizza was the oven. Like many short-cutting Texas places, they use a conveyor style oven instead of a true NY "deck" style oven. The key difference in the "standard" NYC deck oven is gets slightly hotter, but more importantly, the decks have stone surfaces. That's the key reason the crust comes out so good in NY, because the pizza is places on a 600-700 degree stone surface - so you get "conduction" from the bottom on the crust, and "radiation" from the normal oven heat on the top. If only Cha Cha would splurge for the real NY oven, it would be really good pizza. Too bad. THough the cheese and sauce were great, and unlike in the real NYC, the cheff was pretty friendly, and generous with the cheese too! We also ordered a meetball hero sandwich. It was ok, but nothing special. THe pizza was definitely more memorable than the hero. Pizza gets 4 stars The environment: Possibly construction related issues, but on our visit, it was hot inside (virtually no AC), there was no ice for sodas, and there wasn't even an operational bathroom. When I asked if there was at least a sink to wash my hands, they said due to plumbing problems, we had to go next door to the gas station. Kinda yuk, though the place was clean inside, so didn't discourage us from eating... Environment gets 2 stars.
I stopped in yesterday with a group of co-workers on our lunch hour and it was all of ours first time their. The restaurant theme is cute, music selection is horrible. I would prefer light rock or top 40 not infused with dance club music. The music was a little off putting. The young lady that waited on us was very polite and friendly. She was very helpful. The young man that also helped us was also polite and nice but didn't seem too interested in being at work. The food was good. I had a pizza and the sauce was decent but could use some more flavor. It's a little blander than I prefer and I tried the spicy marinara my friend had gotten a sample of and it wasn't anything to write home about either. They should call it mild rustic instead of spicy rustic. The name is misleading also. I was hoping for some pasta since it is called Italian Kitchen but they only had pizza, calzone or salad to choose from. The dough was also bland and too thin. They only offer thin crust and I like something a little thicker. I gave 5 star because the customer service was exceptional comparibly with most other quick service places. Based completely on the food I would give that 3 stars. It needs some work. A more flavorful sauce would help things a lot but for 7 bucks you get what you pay for.
What a treasure in Oaklawn Zini's Pizzeria is for us. I moved to Oaklawn in October, 2012 and had Zini's Pizza for the first time shortly after. I am in my 60's and I have not found excelent tasting pizza like Zini's since I was a kid and a family from Italy opened a Pizza Shop in a cornor store in our neighborhood in Philadelphia. The taste and texture of Zini's pizza is just like the dough that was so wonderful from that first experience of pizza from a true Itilian family. And, the sauce tastes exactly like the sauce my Mom used to make from scratch and would simmer on the stove from about 8AM till around 6PM when we would have dinner. Zini's sauce is so rich and thick and the spices are perfectly balanced. Zini's pizza is like a party in your mouth. I have not tried any other of Zini's dishes, as I can not bring myself to order something other then Zini's pizza, because I would feel as though I was missing something if I did not have the pizza. I am sure all of the dishes that use Zini's red sauce are out of this world because of their wonderful tasting sauce. I have been telling everyong about Zini's. When I find something so good, I can not help but share the good news with my friends and people I meet in Dallas.
I had seen this place but never had an interest in stopping in until I was checking out at the Tom Thumb just a few doors away. A young man named Crockett told me they have the best wings way better than Wingstop when I told him I was on my way to Wingstop to pick up an order. 3 days later for lunch I decided to visit after viewing their website the food looked so good, I was excited to try their food and I wasn't disappointed . I ordered the chicken philly cheesesteak combo that comes with wings , celery sticks, pink lemonade and ranch dressing. I ordered lemon pepper wings. Since they were out of menus I wrote their menu in a notebook I had in my purse. I ordered a side of french fries when I noticed on the menu they wouldn't be part of the combo I ordered. I was totally satisfied and amazed how good the chicken philly cheesesteak was it is to die for. I have a new hot spot not far from work or home that I can visit. I took a pic and posted it on facebook to let friends know of this little gem.
The bartenders are funny, and if you visit a few times, they will remember your name, your face, and your drink. The food is beyond most bar food I've ever had. I really like almost everything, but the chicken quesadillas are awesome, the burgers are juicy, and junk bucket fries are fun. There are choices for the calorie conscious...for instance, I often get the Turkey, lettuce, and avocado sandwich on a brown roll, with extra tomatoes instead of mayo and vegetables instead of fries. The pool tables are nicely maintained, and the waitresses are friendly and flirty, unless you're just rude. In that case, yes, you will probably not get the best service. They have drink specials every day, a great Wednesday all day, all night happy hour, shuffleboard, a punching bag game...now I'm feeling like a homer. I will say that I think you get back whatever you bring into a place. If you come in ready to have a good time, you'll have a good time. If you don't, go to McDonald's, get drive-through, and go home.
We were in the Dallas area to celebrate our son's arrival home from university and our nephew's graduation from SMU. My husband and I have dined at Maggianos in Las Vegas many times with each time being better than the last. Maggianos at North Park offered exactly the right balance of a special celebratory dinner with a relaxing, "dress casual" experience we had in mind. The restaurant decor is comfortable, the host welcoming, and our waiter made us feel we were the only diners in the restaurant. Portions are generous! The boys ordered Eggplant Parmesan(outstanding), my husband ordered his favorite appetizer, Onion Strings(fabulous)and I ordered the Beef Medallions with Balsamic Cream Sauce(excellent). The restaurant location is easy to find, the parking is ample, and the noise level in the dining room is no distraction. A chain restaurant with a notable, enjoyable and affordable experience each time is the take away.
I heard of this new place opening up that offered pizza and calzones but not your typical pizza place. I went for lunch and was so glad I did! I had a calozone which was made right in front of me with all the fresh ingredients I chose. The dough was AMAZING, it was flavorful, crispy and light. I had it with the homemade marinara sauce and fell in love with the whole meal! I immediately started to think of all the different combinations i could have every time i eat here. The dining room was great, loved the decor and had cool music playing that was upbeat and fun! The staff was very friendly and helpful since i was new to the concept of the restaurant. I highly recommend this place for any food lover. I plan on next time bringing a couple friends with me and our own bottle of wine and making a night out of it! This area needed a place like this!!
I think "critic lady" must be a disgruntled ex-employee or something because she is completely off base. I've been there a couple of times and the food is excellent and the service was great. I'm Italian and I grew up in an Italian restaurant family in southern California so I think I can speak on the subject. The pastas I've had were fresh, tender, and homemade. I've had a few of their sauces (mine and tasted others at the table) and they were excellent. My wife has had the veal, our friends had the fish specials...everything has been impeccable every time we've been there. I found this review forum because I looked them up on the interent to get their phone number so we could call for a reservation...I'm glad I did, they deserve a better review than the only other one on here so far (and mine is more accurate:)).
About the Lunch Buffet..... SO much better than your typical lunch buffet bar. I was super impressed by this place. I honestly feel that the salad bar is top notch and is a smaller version comparable to a Souper Salad. There was so much more variety than I expected since they packed a great deal of different food into the bar. If you're on a diet like me and your friends pick this place you're still in the clear! They seemed to have interesting combos on their pizza toppings too. They had the typical pepperoni and such, but a couple of different pizzas for those who like to sample other types of pizza. Awesome garlic herb and cheese twisted bread sticks! Pretty cool, I hope this place does well. In my opinion definitely worth checking out. I wish I had earlier because I live so close!
Dee Lincoln mentioned her cajun background, which may explain why the Crispy Oysters were the star of my dining experience along with the Bananas Foster Crumble. I’m impressed with the breading and comfort feeling after taking a bite of the oysters, and the sweetness of the bananas foster transported me to a New Orleans cafe. These items left me wanting more. I think the real lesson here is that if you eat here, the Cajun items are the way to go. Also, the Sushi Pizza intrigued me. The creamy sauce spiked with Sriracha and lots and lots of wasabi tobiko (flying fish roe flavored with Japanese horseradish) onto ahi tuna and tempura rice crust to pull it together. It’s a great starter or snack to enjoy while you dine here.
