Stopped for a "quick" snack after a parade. Stop was anything but quick....this is supposed to be fast food. Once we received our $5 fill up we decided for the price we were satisfied. We are assuming that since the restaurant had just gone through a update and it was following a even that is the explanation. Will stop again,

Have had friends eat at the Lowell version of this restaurant and say it’s good, so we decided to try the new location. I don’t know if it’s the same owners or franchise now, but this place is a sorry excuse for bbq. The wife and I split a 3 meat combo with brisket, ribs, and pulled pork, onion rings, collards and paid $4 extra for some of the cucumbers and onions. Ok, the good was the collards, lots of stems but overall pretty good and the cornbread was alright. The ok, pulled pork was fine subtle smoked flavor but not amazing and we got 5 slices of cucumber for $4, the plate had 5 that came with meal, it was served in a good sized bowl, with 5 little cucumber slices in the bottom.The bad, onion rings from the freezer, the first time I’ve ever gotten a piece of “brisket” with no crust, not sure it was even brisket and yes, just one little piece and definitely not smoked, 0 smoke ring and no smoke flavor, weirdly gelatinous. Ribs were not smoked, I don’t care what they say, they are baked or steamed, giant pockets of fat in them, that would melt away from slow smoking them and 0 smoke ring or flavor, maybe the worst “smoked ribs” I’ve ever had. And service was bad, the waitress and her buddy stood by the screen the enter orders on looking at their phones and ignoring everyone, cussing about someone that was texting our waitress. I can cuss like a sailor too but not usually what you want to hear from your waitress 10 feet away. Plus if you want to be like that, you should probably visit your table once and awhile. No refills, no how’s the food, nothing, just a bill. Don’t know if it’s growing pains or this is just what they are. Walked around back, there is a big red smoker but it wasn’t running and no wood in sight, might be the reason there is a lack of smoke.

My family met at Applebee's, after everyone ordered it took 30 min for the appetizers to arrive, it was then we had to ask for silverware!! None of the empty plates or cups were taken away. I put some on the table behind us. There was a family that left when we were still there and that table was never cleared off. The manager walked around and never picked up anything!!!! We ordered the 2 for $25 and asked if I could pick a different side and she said sure. So when the bill came my side was an extra $1.99 which she could have told me when I asked. When the bill came i paid in cash, she came back about 2 minutes later and asked if I needed change. How insulating!!! She should have just brought the change and maybe I would have tipped her but this is the first time that I left no tip.

I was in town for business and happened upon Richie's while walking through Hasting's beautiful downtown. Richie's is nothing fancy, but I enjoyed sitting at the counter and having a burger (ground daily), crispy fries, and a coke. The whole meal was under $8, was good and hot, and quite tasty. There's a sign on the wall telling everyone that it takes a little longer to cook a good burger (they used the word "bare" instead of "bear" but I'm sure somebody has told them that many times over the years). I could smell the homemade chicken noodle soup (since I was sitting at the counter)...and wished I'd ordered a cup. Deserts also looked good, but I didn't partake. The place is right downtown near the County Courthouse. Wonderful downtown with free parking and nice storefronts.

We were with friends and some had the breakfast buffet and others off the menu. All the food was very good. We did have some service issues with our waitress. We were unable to get refills on drinks but were helped by other wait staff. I would eat here again as our only issue was with one person.

Mexican Connexion Restaurant

The best Mexican food in Barry county. Delicious and fresh cooked daily menu. Quick and friendly service.

Reviewed By Drgole

I have traveled to over 75 countries and we sample food from around the world. Mexican Connection makes one of the top 10 best tasting guacamole’s I have tasted. I love the Chicken Flautas with a side of guacamole. The Chicken Taco Salad is also a favorite. Cost is medium range, service is friendly and great. If your passing through Hastings or want a Mexican with a Colombian twist give this restaurant a try. Hello Drgole. Thank you very much for that thoughtful review. We are very proud to offer you great food and service. Our homemade food is made with love. It makes us very proud to please customers like you that can feel and see our passion for fresh, tasty and great food along with a great service. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts!

We stumbled across this place yesterday and were delighted by the century plus high ceiling and walls , the service (warm, not gushy) and food. A bit pricey but worth it.

Walldorff Brew Pub and Bistro

Reviewed By Bob E

We were on our way to GR from a show in Battle Creek and chose to wait until Hastings to go to Walldorff. We got immediate seating after 9:00 PM and the full menu was still in effect which was awesome. We started with appetizers and some of their brews...all were good. We tried the deep fried beans (YUM), the deep fried cheese curds (double yum) and the chips and salsa for our GF person. Lots of great selections but we went with the bison burgers, a beef and cheese and a Quinoa Veggie burger on a GF bun. All were very good although the bison was a bit overcooked and dry although it may have been from frozen as is often the case with bison. It was not medium rare. The beef and cheese (pot roast and cheese) and the quinoa burger were excellent as well. The list of toppings is long and delicious....so you can craft your food the way you want it. It costs a little more but it's worth it to get what you want and to have it well prepared...go elsewhere for cheap eats ;-) The sides we had were garlic fries (nice subtle flavor) pepper fries (also tasty) and really good sweet potatoe fries. The service was fast and helpful but not real attentive...I asked for water all not and continued to get refills on my diet coke...but otherwise it was pretty good service! After being in Hastings since 2006, this place is a solid vote for my favorite local jewell in Hastings. Enjoy!
