El Patron

Reviewed By cynthia a

I ordered Fajitas and my son ordered Carne Asada. We were very dissaponted with the food this evening. I ordered soapillas and couldn't believe they used chocolate & maplw syrup and not honey or cinnamon sugar. Lacking flavor on all levels.

Ribs are tender and fall off the bone, Turkey was moist and succulent, mashed potatoes and gravy were outstanding! Couldn't ask for better service! Cowboy Poppers for appetizer dipped in rib rub before cooking... AMAZING!

Kansas Belle Dinner Train

Reviewed By zofoman - Nebraska

We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary on the Kansas Belle via gift from our children. We had always wanted to experience this when the operation was known as the Fremont Dinner Train in Nebraska. The decor of 'The Rose' car was exactly as pictured on their website. The multi-course meal was awesome with each course served piping hot or cold as one would expect. Their wine selection is more than adequate and reasonably priced. We had a great time and entire staff were hospitable making the experience one we would like to repeat. If there is one minor area for improvement, I would suggest more attention & organization of the pre-boarding process as more than one guest arrived and had no idea on what they were to do or how to "sign in". Regardless, prepare yourselves for a wonderful and memorable 1940's experience.

We were attending car show on a Friday night and decided to try Big Boopers. Great menu variety from dinners, sandwiches and ice cream. We had Johnny dog and hamburger. Ready to go back and try something else. Packed house but great and fast service.

The Pizza Hut in Baldwin City is a nice place to get good foor and take it out or eat in. It is easy to get to as it is on one of the main east-west streets in the city. Good and friendly service, too.

Jo's Diner

Reviewed By Susan3922 - Lawrence, Kansas

When you're in a small town, and don't have many choices of places to eat, there's always 1 place like this. A place that the locals like because 1) they don't know any better 2) they own the place or a relative owns the place and 3) they have to like it because if it closes, they have no other options, which means the place is fabulous to them.

But in reality, the restaurant is dirty, the service is slow, the food is for hillbillies, and the decor is something you'd find in a trailer park. Yeah, it's that bad.
It really is quite backwoods, like the town. Makes a person feel good to get back to reality when you leave the little country bumpkin hole.

Went here a few times and the service continued to get worse. We will never be back. If you choose to try anyway, turn around if Becca is working! She gives terrible service amd obviously doesn't care about customers/repeat customers/tips.

It was such a pleasant surprise. The establishment made me feel like I was back a few decades with all of the collectibles available. It was so much fun to brouse around and remember my grandmother. The food was very tasty, and affordable. The french toast gigantic. It's one of those places where it can not be removed from my memory.

What a great find for the morning cup of Java. The atmosphere inside is just right and the tables outside are perfect to lounge and enjoy your daily cup. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. We were in town for a conference, and they were happy to give advice on planning our day.
Thanks again !
