“Worst experience EVER! Went to your Kingman restaurant,Our waitress was new and that was fine except she got our order completely incorrect. She brought me a Green Chili PORK burrito. (I ordered the Green chili OMLETTE, as I am ALLERGIC to pork!)She was supposed to correct the prices on her mistakes... ”

Antars Sports Bistro

 4 star(s)  (08/28/2012)
“Went to Antars around 7:00 on a Monday night. Place was mostly empty, as was everything else on Mill Avenue at that time. Was seated on the patio and ordered the Cajun Chicken Penne and a Kiltlifter. The Cajun Chicken Pasta was excellent, the beer was cold, but the patio was a little hot. Strange... ”

“My wife and I work in the area an decided to visit this place on our lunch hour. We were seated right away but had to call the server over to take our order. We then waited for another 30 minutes and still no food. We ended up spending 45 minutes in this restaurant before we walked out with no time ... ”

“I am very sadden about the jbs closier in West Valley, Utah. Were were like family there they gave us no notice and I was not givin the privilage to say good by to all my friends there. I have been going there over 10 years. They helped me with the death of my husband and gave me great friendship.... ”

Gus's New York Pizza

 5 star(s)  (02/24/2011)

El Penasco

 4 star(s)  (02/22/2010)
“We have been trying all of the local mexican restaurants and we were very pleased with El Penasco. The service was good and the servers VERY friendly! Even the owner came out and said Hi and introduced himself.... The salsas are great and very creative. The enchiladas are bland....but we will be... ”

Pete's Fish & Chips - Corporation OFC

 5 star(s)  (09/03/2009)
“Pete's Fish n Chips is the best. I, an Arizona Native, grew up on Pete's Fish, and there's one item on the menu that keeps me coming back; the "Sauce" MMmm MmM! They definitely need to open the franchise and make it nationwide. Bring Pete's to Houston TX!”

China Town Buffet

 5 star(s)  (08/27/2009)
“I was very pleased - I don't understand how someone could give this buffet a negative review. I just wish it was closer to home.”

El Penasco

 5 star(s)  (07/14/2009)
“The food is authentic and delicious. Portion size is generous and El Penasco's frozen margaritas are the best in Tempe and perhaps beyond. The decor is a combination Mexican cantina and all you can eat Chinese restuarant. The staff is friendly andthe service is outstanding.”

Pho Thang Long

 2 star(s)  (04/20/2009)
“The food there is a a JOKE. The owner need to be told that he need to get a REAL chef. Not some person that he picks up on the street. Enough Said !!!!”

Pho Nhat Cu

 2 star(s)  (04/20/2009)
“My husbands "Grilled Pork" tasted like Cheetos; no joke it was disgusting, and the shrimp were like a wet sponge that had been soaking in water all day If they were to be inspected by the health board they would be SURE to FAIL. And on top of a horrible experience, my husband got sick the rest of t... ”

Lychee Inn Fine Chinese Dining

 5 star(s)  (04/05/2009)
“You cannot find better authentic Chinese food anywhere in the East Valley. Don't let the outside of the building fool you; this place is awesome! Make sure to ask for your fried bananas at the end!”

Spinato's Pizza

 5 star(s)  (02/28/2009)
“this place is, by far, the best chicago pizza in the valley. i suggest getting a sausage and mushroom. being from chicago myself, i hate when places say they are chicago style and fall short. you will not have that problem here.”

Rosita's Fine Mexican Food

 4 star(s)  (02/16/2009)
“I have been eating at Rosita's since 1986 and have never had a bad experiance there. The food is great, though I wish they still had some things on the menu that they have taken off. The service and value are better than most mexican (non-fast food) resteraunts. I will definately continue dining the... ”

China Town Buffet

“China Town Buffet is the dirtiest and most confused restaurant. Pails, mops, and other are displayed in the dining room, making eating an unpleasant experience. The staff wear dirty clothes and one even picks her nose while delivering drinks. Even the owner has no respect for cleanliness. He m... ”

Sneakers Sports Grill

 1 star(s)  (12/10/2008)
“I went in to sneakers three times in a row because it's my neighborhood bar. I'm big on that kind of thing, and supporting local business. But Sneakers is terrible. Each time I came in it took well over half and hour to get a drink. Each time I had to leave my table, because I guess at sneakers ... ”
