The owner eddie is one of the most down to earth individuals I've ever encountered. I lost my cell phone, and I had a good idea it was in my vehicle, so I had to find someone to call it, I went inside to ask for assistance, he could have said no, been selffish, and been on his way, but he went outside his store and helped out. So I returned his kindness by trying out the food. Being chinese, and having worked at domino's pizza for 4 years as a shift manager, and delivering pizzas on a bicycle in downtown San Diego, Pizza Hut in Mayport FL and Chula Vista CA for 1 year as a driver, Papa Johns for 1 year as a driver, and Broadway Pizza years ago as a cook, I have a pretty good idea what good pizza is, and I am also vegetarian. The pizza is fantastic, their is fresh, made to order and also pizza already made for fast service. They also have other foods and salads besides pizza. If you want down to earth, friendly stellar service, and great food, look no further. This is the place for you! From 1 to 10, I give it a 9.8. I will make YouTube movies later on this business and other businesses. I am also a former professional secret shopper/mystery shopper, I used to write reports for hours on the service of businesses, employees, almost like restaurant impossible, mystery diners and bar rescue, so I know good service when I see it, and if the employees actually care, were human, we make mistakes, I attempt to remain objective and fair. And the customer isn't always right, credit where credit is due. I don't do or care for typing, email, text, and here are just a few reasons why below. "Rules are flawed, as flawed as the people and ignorant fools that make them." - intellectualgivers "Freedom of expression, freedom of speech overrides most rules." - intellectualgivers "People want to attempt to sound sophisticated and smart when they sound smug and petty." - intellectualgivers "Religious people try to impose their ignorant close minded foolish flawed morality on others, not knowing any better, nothing more nothing less." - intellectualgivers "A party is like a religion, it straight jackets your mind." Jack Kevorkian May 26, 1928 - Present (age 82) Pontiac, Michigan, U.S. "All the big powers they've silenced me. So much for free speech and choice on this fundamental human right." - Doctor Jack Kevorkian May 26, 1928 - Present (age 82) Pontiac, Michigan, U.S. "You got every right in the world to do and say what you want, as long as you don't harm or threaten anybody or any property" - Doctor Jack Kevorkian May 26, 1928 - Present (age 82) Pontiac, Michigan, U.S. "email, instant messenger and typing inpersonalizes effective communication between people. You do not see there face, you do not know there mannerisms, the sound or tone of there voice. It is substandard communication, and the anonymity of the internet and email has virtually made it impossible for old fashioned personalized effective communication." "It is not the greatest thing since sliced bread." - intellectualgivers "My take on email and typing. The biggest problem I see is being ignored. People can be narcissistic, flatulent, arrogant, condescending, aristocratic, or all of the above. There is nothing more wrong than sending someone a communication via e-mail, you are articulate, like to express yourself fully, taking the time to write the e-mail, sending it, expecting a reply, then never getting one." - intellectualgivers "Hell, there are no rules here, we are trying to accomplish something." - Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 - October 18, 1931)
I think this place is bad from hearing so many of the very few number of customers that do go in there and end up having a bad experience or as they say with a happy ending, with the un professional inexperienced female psycho working day time manageing ", its pathetic, ladies if u ever feel like working with a manger that is unapprochable gets high and hangs out on her off days drunk as a scunk at the clubs who not only can not answer your questions or build a special bond with all the girls working this is the place. Forget all work related questions , they won't be answered , she will stomp to the owner and act as if she is tattle tailing, this is a joke, then if u want to feel degrated and told ur nothing or f*** you for showing customer Service and devotion good work ethic go out the window , this is the den of dillusion that feels dumb to have no way back . If the owners whinning women feels threaten by ur beauty or genuine style she will make it impossible for you and if that doesn't work she will pout and cry and force you to feel sick to work along side with such a creep and throw u under the bus. This place uses the girls and customers see it . Ladies this is the last place to work at that is negative and leaves ur stomach in knotts . The only nice thing is unrated and unappretiated unfortunately and that is the cool male managers and waitresses that u see temp. And the true well composed few strippers there. Check out all the other clubs first as a heads up and customers make sure there's air conditioning and a girl on stage before you get taken for a few bucks and pay to walk into dissappointment .
Some restaurants don't only speak for themselves, but yell. And you should be caught by Mama Testa, every dish is made from scratch. In an age when fusion is all the rage, Mama Testa is happy to show that going back to the authentic is by no means archaic. Each dish represents a focus on the traditions and techniques responsible for producing complicated flavors and textures. This is all especially true when fish tacos are the topic of conversation. Mama Testa was the first restaurant in San Diego to take on Bobby Flay, as part of Throwdown with Bobby Flay. And although these tacos may not have been the original cause of Mama Testa's good reputation, besting Flay was a great way to prove that it was one fish taco you don't want to miss. What made all this possible is Cesar Gonzalez, owner of Mama Testa, and his passion for Mexican cuisine and culture. He didn't want free range chicken just for the health reasons or because it was the current trend, but because only free range can bring out the flavors realized by the dishes as they are made in Mexico. In fact, all the fresh ingredients are for making Mexican food the way Mexicans do. And Cesar knows that just the food is not enough to give a sense of the culture, so he has made sure that while you dine, you can't help but notice the decor; pieces taken from themes of the golden era of Mexican movies and chairs baring actor's names. The entire idea of Mama Testa Taqueria is to fill your senses with the flavors, smells and sights of Mexico. A goal it has surely achieved.
Walking past El Vitral along the open stadium of Petco Park, shelves of premium tequila glisten in the restaurant window. Walking into the establishment, it becomes evident that tequila is definitely a theme. And why not? It is a quality product from Mexico, which falls in line with Chef/Owner Pablo Becker’s whole vision. His vision is to introduce all things good from fine Mexican cuisine and changing the way San Diego views Mexican food. If that isn’t the best first impression, wait until you walk into the main attraction, the open kitchen. Floor to ceiling stainless steel wrapped in glass pane, the kitchen is the ultimate centerpiece. Chef Becker compares the development of a restaurant is like fitting together pieces of the puzzle. He knows because he speaks from experience. When he first started in the restaurant business his mentor asked him to start like any other employee with no prior experience; by washing dishes. From there, he went through every step of the business from the bottom up. Today, as a restaurateur, he knows a restaurant inside and out and top to bottom. In fact from the hostess to the bartender, all are trained to answer any questions a patron might have about the décor, the various brands of tequila and most importantly, the food. Also on his team is Chef de Cuisine Norma Martinez. She heads the concept menu and blends items in like grandma’s mole recipe. With Chef Becker’s depth of culinary skills, extensive restaurant experience, and love for the restaurant industry, El Vitral is a definite home run.
What a wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant! . The menu is excellent, the ambiance is warm and inviting. The patrons are warmly greeted by the manager, Steve Zagen. He makes his patrons feel like he is genuinely happy to see them. When they leave, he genuinely thanks them for coming and says that he hopes to see them again. He visits the tables and makes sure the patrons are satisfied. Who does that anymore?! We actually thought he was the owner. Our waiter was excellent, as was the rest of the upbeat staff. ( He even gave us extra bread to take home. ) The menu is wonderful. The pizzas are fabulous because the dough is light and the cheese is top quality. They certainly don't skimp at DeMille's! The antipasti salad and appetizers are generous and delicious, as is everything on the menu. DeMille's is definitely worth the trip to Kensington. Dress is casual and families feel comfortable, as does everyone else. We will return, again and again.
I love this Sushi Lounge, The Sushi is delicious and very affordable, I also like all the specials that they have on the board. They also have a full bar. The atmosphere is fun, you walk down into it , They have a large projection screen , showing movies or underwater scenes. There is also a juke box. A few days a week they have a DJ. The Sushi chef Tim is very knowledgeable and creative with the Sushi that he makes. They even have sushi sliders. I have had the lunch special a few times and it was very good. The Happy Hour is fantastic, although the prices are reasonable enough to go anytime... I can also bring my non Sushi friends as they have a hot menu too with some nice chicken or beef Terriaki , and they even have yummy garlic fries. I had the salad with sushi , it was really good. The miso soup and sea weed salad are very good.... I always have a good time when I go here.
I love the Garlic Shack! I had read many reviews before visiting and so was expecting some giant size meals, but OH MY GOSH. My burger was the biggest that I have ever laid my eyes on. And those fries, I cannot even describe how amazing they were. $6 for a large is always good enough for me, but you could make a meal of the fries themselves, there were just so many! Garlicky, salty, perfect; I am in love with those fries. The food was definitely amazing. My friend's Korean Beefholic was huge enough for me to steal a few unnoticed bites and was nearly as good as my awesome burger. Besides the food though, the service was just top-notch incredible! Every single person on the staff is so nice, it's hard to describe.
great new york pizza, hands down!!! My husband and I frequent this pizza joint ever since we discovered it in San Marcos. My husband (from New York) is highly critical of any pizzeria but he has given his thumbs up on this place! The owner, Bobby, is very personable and will greet you by your first name. I haven't tried anything other than their pizzas (mainly because it's so good that it's hard to venture out) but i intend to try their calzones very soon. It takes about 15-20 min so you may want to call first. Keep in mind the ambiance is very "sport motif" so he has several big screens broadcasting several sports games at once. Sundays can be quite noisy and hectic with all the sports games on tv.
"Visual Edge Slant Boards have been an excellent resource in my practice. At every vision therapy orientation, I include information on proper ergonomics and healthy visual habits. I strongly encourage EVERY vision therapy patient to purchase a slant board to be used for any near point tasks, such as reading or writing. The Visual Edge Slant Board provides my patients with a more versatile, lightweight board that is excellent for use in the classroom. I have received lots of positive feedback from both my younger patients and their parents after using the slant boards. Thank you Visual Edge for your hard work and dedication to reduce visual stress in the classroom.
I visited the newly remodeled Filippi's. I went into the new area and sat down. I was waiting awhile until a waitress named Ashley came up to me and asked had I been helped. I said "no" and she was very bright and helpful. She took my order and made me feel like I was welcomed in the restaurant. I had some items from there appetizer menu which were good. I had previously visited Filippi's and had the lasagna(it is my favorite). The food could have been better, but they may be getting use to the new building. I did appreciate the help and service from the waitress, she was amazing. I will return
