Saigon Kitchen

Saigon Kitchen opened in April 2011. It is on Bell Road in Surprise Arizona. It is a great restaurant and should be added to your website!

Food came out very slowly, not the whole table, things forgotten, some we just went without.
What we did eat was very good. So sad that it was such a negative experience. Probably the worst of my hundreds of entries on this TA page.

They comped our dessert but it did not recover the dinner disappointment

Rio Mirage Cafe Y Cantina

Reviewed By Richard M

This has become our favorite Mexican restaurant since moving to Arizona. My wife and I love Mexican food and we tried numerous restaurants and could not find one that served good food and most of all, good salsa. The first time we went there was back in 2014. The dining atmosphere at either the El Mirage (original restaurant) or the Surprise location gives you a feel of Mexico with the design of the restaurant.

The staff is friendly and the food is good. I definitely recommend it for a great dining experience.

Lou's Tivoli Gardens

Reviewed By Jmorgan54

This restaurant has a really nice atmosphere, and entertainment and dancing and that was all very nice. There was a good crowd of customers there, mostly retired folks, but Alas ! The food was very mediocre. I really didn't know that it was possible to serve bad spaghetti .. but mine was lousy. The garlic bread was saturated with a very bland tasting oil .. it was awful!! Wife's baked cod wasn't tasty at all, and her baked potato had sour cream on that didn't taste good .. she said that it was terrible! Like maybe it had spoiled. This restaurant needs a Chef that knows how to cook !! We will not go back.

Giving it two stars out of five because of the nice entertainment and atmosphere.

Reviewed By educator_12 - Surprise, Arizona

My wife and another couple were there on a Thursday afternoon for lunch. The place was about half full at the time. The waitress was great and friendly too but it took forever to get our food once our order was placed. We all had different entrees and everything tasted great too but it took a very long time to get our food once the order was placed. We will be back again though and hope that the service improves.

Nick's Diner II

Reviewed By monetkids - Surprise, Arizona

Best diner deal in this valley. Nick knows how to do it right. The menu has great greek dishes, Italian dishes, deli, sandwiches, soups, salads, fish fry, and oh yes the gyros.
Have tried lots of dishes here and always been great. The gyros platter and Vela Parmigiana is a favorite and I do love the lamb shank. All the entres come with a super fresh salad, good dressing, greek vinaigrette, balsamic all good. Do ask for the greek bread which is lightly grilled and a side of EVO with garlic for dipping. They don't automatically bring it to the table, just ask for it, no problem they bring you plenty. Also comes with veggies. Go on Wednesday and you get a slice of pie. This time I tried the spaghetti and Nicks meatballs. Really great sauce here for all the Italian dishes and the meatballs were huge. Great greek sauce for the greek dishes too. Very good staff, however, noticed wait staff doing the busing and some delays occurred. Always has breakfast deals, all day too. And so convenient right by the AMC show, can walk right there after the show. Coupons in papers too. Join their club to get meals. You never get a bad meal here and you will go home with left overs. They do have beer and wine. Can't beat the value for all you get.

Hole 'N One

Reviewed By Bob G - Surprise, Arizona

This family-owned-operated restaurant uses fresh ingredients, like peeled potatoes and cabbages, for their Wednesday Corned Beef & Cabbage.

I, Jeanine,frequented it, with my 14-year-older 2nd husband, of over 40 years, Fred (1924-2007), with SCG acquaintances, visiting family, and friends.

Also, alone, as a widow, and with my 3rd spouse Roger (1946-2016).

Now, with my 4th husband Bob (b. 1943), who loves their Monday Roast Beef with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.

Homemade bean Bean Soup is my favorite, while Friday Clam Chowder is Bob’s.

Salads are crisp, with a variety of homemade Salad Dressings: While I favor 1000 Island, Bleu cheese is Bob’s favorite.

Tuesdays are “All You Can Eat” Catfish night, served with excellent Cole Slaw❗️

Culver's of Surprise

Reviewed By monetkids - Surprise, Arizona

Love the butter burgers. Tried all the varieties . Haven't tried the cod yet, but have heard it is really great. Favorites are the Wisconsin Swiss Melt that has great mushrooms. The other favorite is the Sourdough Melt. Like a patty melt but with good sourdough bread. You can do a single or double and deluxe it value meal that is your burger, fries and drink deal. Fries are crisp and not oily or greasy. For dessert we must always have the Turtle Sundae. They have great treats here, shakes, concrete mixers,sundaes, flavors of the day. Many reviewers have said great ice cream. This is not ice cream, this is fantastic frozen custard, that is creamy and smooth. The turtle sundaes are big can choose 1 or 2 scoops, have the best fudge toppings and the super fresh pecans. Go for just the sundaes or treats or get a meal and then go back up to order the dessert. The staff is great, place your order, serve yourself your beverage and they bring you your food. Nice to see the ketchup condiment area was cleaner this time and the garbage cans were emptied. They do get a big following here. Good table/booth seating indoors, patio tables outside. Drive thru with good service. Coupons are always in papers.

LongHorn Steakhouse

Reviewed By monetkids - Surprise, Arizona

Been here before for dinner wanted to try again since we did enjoy it.. Did the call ahead seating and it worked well. Said only 15 minute wait when we got there before our call ahead time and it was only 10 minutes. Pays off to do that call ahead seating, was getting up to a 45 minute wait otherwise. Host station was pleasant nice greeters. Seating areas outside and inside to wait for your table. Bar was packed but a nice pleasant area. Server Alvin came over and got us started with our bar beverages first. However it took over 15 minutes to get our beverages, he came by and explained they are super super busy at the bar. Well, this is the busy time of year out here, maybe time to get some help. The menu is a good size with all kinds of steaks, chops, seafood, chicken, soups, salads, apps. The starter bread was good and hot. We went for the Chopped steak, served with choice of veggie or different types of potatoes. Chose the mashed, very tasty, creamy and smooth. The chop steak had a nice garlic rub that was very distinct as Alvin explained it. Also was topped with onion strings and mushrooms. Came with a salad which was very fresh with lots of add ins and good dressing, chose the raspberry. Dinner was a good size serving. Also had the 12 oz Rib eye, cooked perfect as asked medium rare. Had a side of the spaghetti squash which was tender and good seasoning and also a side of the mushroom/onions sautéed. Plenty to share and very fresh and tasty also. Also came with a salad. With entre's you can choose 1 side besides getting the salad with it. This is a good deal here with a good upgraded meal and nice décor, southwest cowboy but not overwhelming while keeping with the steakhouse theme. They have tables and booths, dim lighting, can be a little loud but we had a corner booth which was great. Always check the papers for coupons.

Reviewed By Jo B - Peoria, Arizona

My husband and I had never been here before and found it basically by just driving around looking for a quick bite. We stopped for a late lunch and ordered a medium thin crust pizza w/sausage/onion/mushrooms. We agreed the crust was really really good and the amount of toppings was ample. What did not hit it out of the park for us was the sauce. We found it just so-so. To each his own, I suppose. Not sure we would be regulars, but definitely it was edible and not awful. Just not memorable.

We had some relatives visiting from out of town, so we selected this place to meet for lunch. I thought the chips and salsa were good, although the salsa could have been spicier. I ordered a chimichanga, which I enjoyed. The staff was very attentive.
