I fear places that are not the dealership where I bought my car. I had to get an oil change on a Saturday and this was the only place that I could find that could do my truck without having to drop it off for the day. Very fast, and affordable. I will be coming here again.
PROS: clean, fast
Exotic Aquatics Aquarium Superstore is a great store for anyone. They have items that range from an experts level of interest to a beginners level. Their fish selection is above a lot of other stores and I did not see too many dead ones in the display tanks. I was really impressed with the Angel and Discus selections there.
PROS: Clean, open
CONS: hard to find
I was dissappointed to find out that Dominicks Meat And Deli was no longer owned by Dominick. This used to be one of my favorite places since I lived right down the street from it. The food is still great but, to me, Dominick added that little extra spice to it to make everything better. I would still suggest you try it.
PROS: Reasonable prices, great food
CONS: Missing something
Carmines Seventh Avenue is a great bar that has some of the best cuban sandwhichs in the Tampa Area. I have been going to Carmines for the past 8 years to eat and indulge in a few cocktails. The atmosphere is great and during the day it is fun for the whole family.
PROS: Excellent Cubans, Great Drink specials
Palma Ceia Porcelain & Art Pottery is a great place for all your pottery needs. They have all the supplies you could need and all the abilities to show you how to use those supplies. They also have a very nice sale section that is not made up of solely damaged pieces. They also have a large selection of pottery to purchase.
PROS: prices are great, supplies are plentiful
A very large selection of Buc gear here. However, they sort of have a monopoly on the Buc's gear market, so they charge a pretty penny for their items. They are great though for unique gifts that you cannot find anywhere else, which is always a bonus for the die hard fans.
A must stop for any Bucs fan.
PROS: Great place to visit
The Sound exchange is a great place for someone looking to save a few bucks on the latest and earliest music and DVD titles. They have a large selection ranging from the Bargin Basement, to the new titles. They specialize in locating older titles. They also buy back at a fairly good price.
PROS: Fast, cheap, fair on the buyback prices
Vallartas Mexican Restaurant is a great place for authentic mexican food. I am one who frequents Mexico and I must say that this place is the closest I have found to real mexican food in the states. Order the "Michelob Light" Grande with any meal.
PROS: Great, authentic mexican food, free chips and salsa
Perfect Window Tinting was a great place to get my windows tinted. They did it in less than a few hours. There where no air bubbles in the tint which is a must when you get your windows done. Great price too. My parents also had their windows done about a year ago and the tint has yet to turn purple.
PROS: Fast and cheap
Not too long ago I had a custom box built for my truck to house a couple of speakers. Divine Sounds did a great job on the box, but it took too long to get it. I believe it took almost a week. That is simply too long to build a custom box for a Nissan Truck. It should have only taken a day or two.
PROS: Great store
CONS: Way too busy
