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.

Probably the WORST food I have ever had. I have never been to an Italian restaurant where they did not even know how to make caprese; slices of tomatoes drenched in ranch with a slice of old deli cheese, absolutely horrible!! The entree where just as bad; the pasta pamodora was nothing more th…

Love, love love Battuto Italian Kitchen! Awesome atmosphere, great waiters/waitresses, incredible food. You can tell everything is handmade because it just tastes superior. The calamari was perfectly crisp with a great aioli for dipping. I dream about the chicken pasta with mushrooms and oli…

We went to Tony's as part of a wine tasting. We had been there a few years back under the old ownership so we had a reference point to see how the place was holding up. Tony's did not let us down. The staff was great, our wine master was knowledgeable and better yet FUN. We have been to other wi…

I am an Italian grandmother and natrually love to cook and entertain. There are many good American/Italian restaurants in town, but if you want the real deal you must go to this gem of a restaurant. Rightfully they have been in business for over two decades and that alone should tell you somethi…

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 starsThe 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.
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.
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.
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.
The other day I stopped by this restaurant and have to say to I was pleasantly surprised, after ordering suppa di mare I can honestly say that it was the best I had in a long time....nedless to say that I am a big seafood lover and know how to recognize a good dish, also the waiter was checking on me and my dad often, he was courteous and even gave us great info about what we could do after dinner around that area..since we dont live in that area. I recommend this place if you are looking for a good quality meal at a descent price in downtown dallas. By the way, the place is not too big...but cozy and with nice atmosphere and music. I will come back to this place next time I am around.
Excellent fried chicken which is far superior to the big-name places. They also have tons of things which aren't on the online menu like sandwiches, catfish, fried livers & *corn fritters* which are 2die4 good! BIG portions of side orders like spicy rice (yummy!), fries & mashed potatoes. The only downside is they're often busy and it's not uncommon to wait, but their food is well worth any minimal delay. Actually, I was stunned to see they'd received two such low ratings here, so 4 stars from me is probably more realistic. Still, we've eaten at Williams 10-15 times and barring the occasional wait, I cannot recall EVER being disappointed with the food.
Every technician i've met has been friendly and professional. They always make sure the intensity isn't too much and the laser treatments haven't really been too painful at all. The receptionist is always so nice and very flexible with scheduling appointments (which can be tricky since I'm at school most days from 9-5). I've been told they aren't running the same special that I bought since they were losing money that way but there is a similar one for slightly more, which is still a great deal--I'm considering buying it again since not having to worry about shaving is so nice. Definitely buy it if you happen to run across it!
I ordered the house Liberty Burger (with bacon of course), a side of sweet potato fries, and an adult shake (yes, that's a thing here).The burger, cooked medium as I asked, was very juicy and delicious: they nailed the sweet fries too, not over fried and not overly crispy. The adult shake, The Lebowski, was a delicious Kaluha infused milk shake that was very tasty. Wish the straw was wider as I think I pulled a muscle trying to use their teeny tiny straw to drink it.Place is noisy: loud music with no attempt at controlling unnecessary loudness in general: staff are friendly and it was otherwise enjoyable to dine in.
First of all Liu's is a Chinese Restaurant, they do not specialize in 'BBQ ribs and Chicken where chicken 'grizzle' would be present.My significant other and I decided to try them today and WHAT A Treat! We liked the food so much we decided to find a "Review Website" and rate them.Maybe just be mindful that english is not their first language. The lady was friendly and diligent so she made it easy to order. The food was well made, Very tasty and better than some of the more expensive Chinese Restaurants we frequent. And, for us, it was take out. It was our first and NOT our last time ordering with Liu's Restaurant!
