I just got back from my first visit to the new Wal-Mart here in Modesto on McHenry. What follows is the first impressions of a person who was in retail for a decade (was an ASM for K-Mart back in the day. . ) and was in business for a total of two decades. I had heard from those in my wife's office that the new W-M was not at all up to par. Calling it a "superstore" was a bit of a misnomer the food section was undersized. . but I digress. As I walked up to the store, just for the heck of it, and feeling in a jovial Xmas eve mood, I asked a guy who had just come out, what if he thought it was the greatest store ever. He looked at me, like I was crazy, and shook his head and said "NO."I put that off as shopping fatigue. I entered the store, and tried to get the attention of a managerial type to find the Christmas cards quickly (guy here - don't like to shop, let me get in and get out). She turned away before we made eye contact (point for her) Undaunted, I followed along until she joined the "clot" of three other sales associates. I let her deliver her urgent message (apparently picked up at the Service Desk just prior) then asked the assembled brain trust where the Christmas cards were. One young Mensan looked at me, said something I couldn't make out, and walked by me. Two girls stood there as they had before I came up and said nothing. Ms. Managerial walked by my saying she would show me. I followed in tow. As we hurried to the cards, I told her of my experience in the parking lot. I am not sure her opinion could have been lesser had we been standing in a hold chatting. (If you don't get the reference, don't worry, only 2% of the population can probably.)So finding my card and then the electronics dept, I found one clerk who must have just transferred in from a place where the people still give a damn about customer service. She helped me find my DVD and I went to the checkout area. There the clerk was looking around (not for customers to help, but to probably make time move faster). I asked her if she could help me. No response. I came around the end of the checkout station and placed my DVD on the counter. Her response. None, no greeting. She did continue to gaze off in other directions (if only she was actually watching customers, I would have been impressed. . . ) She finished our scene, her lethargic, and me, wondering why I didn't listen to my wife's co-workers. Modesto needed another Wal-Mart like this one, like a hole in our collective heads. The jobs and tax revenue are nice, but jeeeze. Wonder how long this place will last in next year's economy. The parking is way inadequate and 8 of ten employees I interacted with were strictly bush league. Sam, I am sure you are rolling in your pine box. . .

I came to the store to return my stuff. I had the receipt and the items from the previous month and they refused to give me store credit and said I needed the card. I went outside to grab my cards, and came back. There wasn't a line, and I ran to the car literally. I came back and she put a few things back on a card that she "NEEDED" the card for, but really didn't because she processed it with out the card. All I wanted was store credit and for them to try and find a solution to the problem with the items that weren't coming up in the system. I have the savings catcher and I shop almost daily at the Neighborhood Market. These refund associates were acting like I was lying Very unprofessional and not at all helpful to the customer. Not everyone steals. It seems more like to they think first off that there is something wrong, not that this might be customer who shops a lot, and maybe try and figure out why. Frustrated.
This companies food is no excuse for the disorganized mess of a delivery service. The website is "under construction" and does not have the current menu. I spent the last 2 weeks dealing with unreturned texts and phone calls to try to get 5 meals and when I finally reached him I hear "I'm busy call back later". All this to get a meatball! He cooks on the weekends and delivers once a week and you are supposed to keep the food in the fridge and eat it throughout the week. Who wants to eat a 7 day old fish taco that consisted of a tortilla and a few thin slices of fish without even shredded lettuce on it!The turkey items are good but beyond that the other items are pretty BLAH. Matt seems like a really nice guy and he's just getting started so hopefully these are just growing pains. I will try again in a few months from now and most likely have a more positive experience.
My Chef Restaurant has moved downtown. That has got to be one of the best things about this restaurant. They do accept checks, ATM and credit card. I have visited this location and ate many times, and have always had a great experience. The prices are a little expensive, but the food is good. They have many lunch specials that are a decent price, and the french fries have just the right amount of seasoning. Check out My Chef next time you need breakfast or lunch.
We spent our 2nd anniversary there. Having never been there we were a bit leary. The staff was very friendly and waited on us promptly. Constantly checked to see if we needed anything. The food was very very good. It was served hot and had more than we could eat. We will enjoy the leftovers. We had the mixed fajitas and the flavor was a flavor I have missed in fajitas. We will be back.
Best authentic Mexican food I've had in the States, the atmosphere is great and and they make awesome michelas, live music pretty much all the time during the weekend. Is a family business run so the customer service is great. I live in the Bay Area and I won't come back home with out eating there or take home some food.
I usually order the garlic shrimp(6) with the rice, beans, and vegetables and its usually VERY good. Today was absoutly horrible and NOT worth the expensive price. The veggies weren't grilled and the shrimp was absolutly horrible! Very dry with NO flavor whats so ever! I almost asked for my money back!
We live in the area of Guadalajara and we done in or take out from this local business at least two times per week. The good is great for taqueria style and the service is always great! Great price points and lots if parking. Try them out next time you are in the area!
