PROS: Great Location, Variety
This restaurant is in a very family oriented location with a small zoo and craft bazaar. Everything has a cowboy theme, the waitress even wear holsters with pistols.
When visiting this fun tourist spot, skip the Apple Annie?s. Drive down the road to eat or have a hot dog from the stand down the path.
On Saturday (9/30/06) I tried to eat at this Apple Annie?s. 2pm I waited in line for 25 minutes to be seated. I assume it is worse during lunch and dinner hours. The interior is not clean. The back dinning room has an uneven brick floor. The chairs are cloth covered office chairs with roller on the legs and they are old and dusty. The table covers are sticky. The menus are sticky. The service is really bad. The table in front of me got the wrong order and they had to spend about three visits to get the order correct. I waited 20 minutes for a waitress to take a drink order. No one ever came. I had to leave. What really bothers me is that I made eye contact and keep raising my hand as waitresses went by. Every time I tried to get someone attention the waitress would quickly look away. When I got up to leave every staff person avoided me on the way out.
The prices are a little high, the dinning area is not clean and the service is very poor. Keep your hard earned money and eat somewhere else.
CONS: Not Clean, Poor Service
Fosters Freeze restaurants are one of those businesses where you never know what you are going to get (like Radisson, Subway, & Holiday Inn). In some locations the experience is poor and others it is the nicest burger restaurant you have ever been too. This Fosters is one of the best. It is very clean, the food is extremely fresh and the staff is personable. Most Fosters in the Fresno area are very good, but the location on N. Palm is the best.
PROS: clean, fresh, fun staff
Cindy?s has a very simple and very good coffee shop menu. There is a pleasant and cleaning dinning area. The prices are very reasonable. The booth space is limited and it will be full on most weekend mornings. If you do have to wait there is a very small space just inside the front door. If it is crowded, it can be uncomfortable.
I have never actually shopped at Whole Foods for groceries. What I can see as I walk to the lunch food area looks nice.
I am, however a raving fan of the lunch selection that Whole Foods offers. There are ?made-while-your-wait? sandwiches, sushi, soups, pizza, pre-made meals to eat cold or microwave and there is a salad bar. The salad bar goes above and beyond the tradition salad offering and includes enchiladas, pastas, cooked vegetables and more. Everything is good. Everything is fresh and healthy (well? as can be).
There can be lines and sometimes it gets crowded. The ?system? is self serve so getting behind a 1st timer or an indecisive person can cause a wait, but it is worth it. Lunch at Whole Foods is not inexpensive, but for what they offer it is a value. You can eat a healthy lunch that is filling for about $10.
PROS: Great Lunch and everything else
To be fair to the other review, I have serviced the car yet.
I had a very good experience with New Century BMW. I highly recommend my sales associate Andy Jin and his manager Rick. I purchased my car in late April 2006.
I told Andy what I was looking for and how much I wanted to pay. Andy looked for over 6 weeks until he found a car that matched and he called me in.
Friendly sales staff.
They are moving a block or two east very soon.
PROS: Andy Jin, Sales Staff, They Listen
CONS: None Yet
Totos has good standard Mexican food. Everything is good. The service is friendly. There are limited number of booths and few tables.
They have a wine margarita which is very interesting.
Very large selection. Good selection of traditional hardware supplies, parts and materials and decorative items. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
This is not a quick stop, the staff talks to everyone and the check out line suffers for it. While I was trying to check out, my checker started a conversation with a coworker about round-up. Her discussion required her to stop scanning my items and take a two minute reading break.
As a Los Angeles native, driving in the snow is not one of my better skills. Park City, UT has a wonderful shuttle system that can get you everywhere you need to go safely, quickly and without long waits. Therefore instead of renting a car, I recommend that you use one of the ?shared van transportation companies? located in the baggage claim area of SLC.
Park City Transportation is one of two companies I have used and both are great. You can make reservations or just show up at the desk and get on the next van. During the day the vans leave about every hour. Depending on how many people are with you and how long you are staying this option can save you money (compared to a rental car). The vans are clean, the drivers help with luggage, the trip is only 25 minutes (to Park City), they stop at all the resorts, hotels and condos and the drivers do a great job of giving you a verbal tour on the way up and down.
PROS: Simple, Clean, Safe
The Yarrow Resort is a nice ?hotel-like? place to stay in Park City. There are a number of positives; The Yarrow is located next to a Park City Shuttle drop-off for three shuttle lines. It is very easy to get to downtown and all three ski resorts. The Yarrow is next door to the Albertsons, which is nice because every room has a mini kitchen. The rooms are very clean. The pool, hot-tub and fitness centers are very nice. There is a ski-shop in the 2nd floor lobby which rents skis and snowboard equipment. The ski-shop also sells any gear you probably forgot (goggles, gloves, etc.). There is a ski check. The bar and restaurant on the floor level are both very nice. I can personally recommend the cheeseburger and the prime rib. The lobby area is very nice and there is free wireless Internet access in the bar and lobby area.
There are two negatives. First the high speed internet access adapter is located on the back of the nightstand, not the desk, which is across the room (at least in room 152). The major negative, which is a deal breaker for me is the rooms are noisy. After a three night stay I identified the cause ? the doors are hollow between the hallway and between the room next door (suites). If the Yarrow replaced the doors with solid doors, I would highly recommend it. Due to the noise conditions I only recommend the Yarrow as a low to mid tier hotel.
PROS: Clean, great access to the Park City shuttle, on site ski-shop
CONS: Thin doors
