Great food and service enjoyed on the patio for an early family lunch. We had a variety of sandwiches that were piled high with deliciousness. Had a difficult time opening our mouths wide enough to take a bite. A definite thumbs up if you are not counting calories or carbs. We splurged!

This restaurant has a fun atmosphere with Greek art and paintings on the wall.
The employees are very warm & friendly. The food is fairly priced and large portions.
My family's favorite is the fried Calamari & Lamb Souvlaki. We dine here often & is our go-to restaurant for great lamb!

A bakery like similar to this is yet to be created. I actually don't think is possible to even come close.

The guaba and cheese is my favorite, some of my co-workers love the potato balls, chorizo and eggs breakfast sandwich is delicious, plantine balls= rellenitos are also a must.

The phone number that is listed for Cerritos Wood Ranch is bogus. Tried 4 times to get through to confirm reservations as requested by a phone message left by a restaurant employee. Need to get their act together. Four times trying each time an impolite disconnect or a goodbye.

Taco Nazo

Reviewed By Rosie R - Lindsay, California

Went to the new restaurant which is located next to the original walk-up taco stand which is still operating. The interior of the next place is spacious with plenty of seating. The decor is urban, and clean, very nice. We ordered battered fried fish tacos and also battered shrimp tacos plates that came with rice and beans. Served with a cooked Guerita chili sprinkled with lemon pepper. The tacos come with a tasty white sauce that makes the tacos yummy. See photos. The host and staff were attentive and friendly. Order at the counter and the food will be brought to your table. We had a very enjoyable dining experience. I highly recommend this place.

Gen Korean BBQ

Reviewed By LnS2004 - Cypress, California

We happened by Gen after visiting a store in the same mall the AT&T store nearby around 2 pm and was surprised there was not a crowd gathering outside as usual (which had discouraged our prior attempts to try it out). We were seated immediately. The all you can eat (27 items) lunch menu price @$16 seems quite reasonable. We first selected 4 meats: beef bulgogi, garlic chicken , angus brisket (chador) and premium steak. We added a spicy chicken popcorn and another serving of bulgogi which we really liked. So much to eat. On top of all the protein, we were served a green salad, a nice warm tasty Korean glass noodles, two piping hot bowls of spicy tofu stew (soondooboo), and small dishes of kimchi, daikon, potato salad, and rice, etc. The quality of both the food and service was good. We will surely be back to try out dinner.

After drinking a couple of adult beverages on trivia night, felt like tasting something sweet so ordered a peach cobbler boy what a surprise as it was incredibly dry and the pastry tasted soggy and under cooked. Unfortunately the food quality here has been going down steadily over the last two years since we have been coming here for Thursday night trivia. The portions are getting smaller and the price seems to keep going up. We used to meet our friends here every Sunday for breakfast but not any more just too little for too much.
The staff are all really fast and very helpful especially Kyle the bar tender, but feel sorry for him as management cannot seem to make their mind up what craft beers to sell and it’s hit or miss what they have on tap, and who ever heard of a southern bar not having well bourbon. All we can think of is that there are new owners, for they change managers faster than I can change my socks. So sad for this used to be a really good place to go. Now except for Quiz night we go to Franks down the road, they are not cheap but you do get what you pay for and their craft beers are constant.

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By swimdiva

We actually wanted to go to cheesecake factory before the movie but we went here instead. Six of us had lunch it was OK the pizzas looked good with soup and salad that we were in a hurry to get to the movie.

After the movie was out again we wanted to go to cheesecake factory for happy hour but the line was already 30 minutes long at 4 PM. So we came back here. The appetizer menu for happy hour wasn't bad. friends tried some cosmos drinks they were happy with. the edamame was good, I would pass on the sweet potato tater tot's and the waffle chips were like little mini potatoes chips and were good

Pizza was good, as was everything. Corn soup was creamy and flavorful
