This is your ordinary average run of the mill McDonalds. This is a good thing in that, being McDonalds, you know what you are going to get. The bad thing comes because it is average. It doesn't feel fun. I'd prefer to drive a little farther and find one that is neater. It is older, but I will admit, it is still clean. One question. Do all McDonalds start serving lunch at 11am? I was sure it was 10:30.
A place to worship for longtime believers, new Christians or searching souls. Be prepared for a concert during the praise and worship. Loud music, light shows and a raucous crowd equal a powerful experience. The preaching is inviting and encouraging. The goal of the church is to reach the unreached. Established Christians may struggle to feel at home unless you find an area to volunteer, of which there are many. But it is a great place to find yourself spiritually.
PROS: Music, praise, friendliness
CONS: more geared to new believers
I had been encouraged to try Call of the Canyon by a BGSU alumni. I was excited, even as we walked in. The decor is really cool, with a lot of southwestern US memorabilia around. The food, however, was not the hottest. I had a salad and my friend had a sandwich. Both were okay, but nothing to write home about. I must admit, however, that the staff was soooo friendly. I really felt welcome. I hope I caught them on a bad day, but who knows?
Panera is not just a place for a bite to eat. In that area it is quite good as well, with the sandwiches and soups (try the potato-cream cheese). It is alos a great place to do some work or just hang out. The biggest selling point is the free wireless internet. It makes you want to return and buy drinks or food while you work. It also makes you feel like you are valuable, unlike some places that charge crazy rates for wireless access.
PROS: good food, drink; free wireless internet
I will never again visit this location. We arrived for this meal with many people which I know makes it more difficult for a server. There were about eight adults and a child. We waited for almost an hour before our dishes came up and then they were all wrong. The corrected dishes were not fast-tracked, apprently because we were still waiting 30 minutes later. Then when the time for the bill arrived, we had been overcharged and the waitress became rude when questioned. We asked for the manager, who was slow to arrive. He apologized but refused to alter our bill. I'll never return to this place and I do not recommend it to anyone.
I love this place! It feels like a Barnes and Noble or a Borders. I love the coffee shop and the children's section. They have a good selection and the staff has always bent over backwards to help. They have the store laid out in a way that is customer friendly. There are multiple entrances, which makes it easier when the area is crowded.
I like Bob Evans as much as the next guy, but there is always a wait for this place. I can not understand the lines out the door at all times. Maybe there's some kind of comfort in a chain you know, but it can be ridiculous here. The food is good, I must admit, but the waits make it less of an option.
I know that Ohio is Bob Evans crazy, but for my money, nothing beats Cracker Barrel. I love the down home style and the storefront, which Bob Evans tries, but fails, to emulate. The food is like you remember your grandma made. Breakfast is so good, with biscuits and gravy. Definitely try the hashbrown casserole. For lunch or dinner, I feel you can't go wrong with meatloaf. You'll be full and you won't be broke after a meal here. While you recover, relax in the rocking chairs for sale out front.
I read in a local magazine that Gino's pizza was voted the best of the Toledo area. I have one thing to say in response. What's the deal? The pizza is okay, but I'd definitely prefer Marco's. The place is small and so are the pizzas. We ordered a large for two adults and a two year old and it was just enough, and we aren't huge eaters. There are few dine in pizza places in Perrysburg, so Gino's is on par with Mancino's in this regard, but there are better pizzas in town.
CONS: Not as good as advertised
I feel that this is the best pizza in town. Large pies and lots of toppings. There are many locations, but I like this one the best. It has a major advantage in that it is next door to Mr. Freeze, so while your pizza is still in the oven, walk on over to MR. Freeze and get yourself a cone or sundae. It's a one stop shop for your full meal.
PROS: best pizza in Perrysburg, next door to Mr. Freeze
