Swell Taco

Some of the best Mexican food you can get. Come enjoy some great California inspired Mexican food while relaxing with a margarita, in our laid back surf inspired atmosphere.

Reviewed By Michael F

Went here for a late Saturday lunch. Hidden off the main road but easily found based on the crowd. The place is small and the wait was a little long, 20 minutes, but in the end, the food was delicious and the price was very reasonable. Would definitely return.

The Lake House

Reviewed By Drknite12 - West Babylon, New York

I made reservations for a nice dinner out here, 2 weeks in advance, on high recommendation from a few people. I was expecting top level service and dining, but that simply was not the case. Appetizer was just ok. The entrees were very good. My wife enjoyed her scallops, and I my steak. It wasn't bad by any means but didn't impress me either. Dessert was pretty good. The biggest problem I had was our server. She couldn't have done any less. A smile would have been nice. Make me feel like I'm not just an annoyance just for showing up. Not that we made any special requests or even asked her a question, but nonetheless, not a good feeling from her. Maybe I expected too much, but I was told the experience here was exceptional. It wasn't. I can't say I'd care if I ever went back. The valet in the parking lot was the friendliest person we encountered.

Wally's Bagels

Reviewed By kiki1217 - North Babylon, New York

Wally Bagels has been a staple in our neighborhood for over 30 years. Everything in the place is made fresh daily. Bagels are a large size, salads are delicious, service is pretty quick. Be prepared for the line you will find in the morning. Everyone comes here for their bagels. Prices are average. You wont be disappointed.

Good bagels, nice selection of cream cheese, fast service. I wish I could think of more to say about a bagel place, but isn't that all you really want in a bagel place?

Mamma Santina Pizza

Reviewed By LongIslandMabel - Long Island

With friendly service and wonderful pizza, Mamma Santina's can't be beat for help with supper plans! My husband and I enjoy a big chopped tomato and chopped onion pizza that lasts for more than one meal at least every couple of weeks and can highly recommend this local pizzeria. They also cook up great Italian meals liked Baked Ziti in addition to their pizzas.

My husband and I live in the Bay Shore area and one night we stopped by Tula for a drink --then we decided to get a snack! Good thing we did- the P.E.I. (Prince Edward Island) Mussels were to die for! Tasty and plentiful-yummy. .I only wish I had taken a picture to show you

Glen's Dinette

Reviewed By TheMaskedwriter - New York City, New York

There is a reason there is always a line out the door on a weekend morning. Glen's is always so good. Two of us visited Glen's on a Saturday afternoon. We were lucky to get seated right away. The restaurant is so delightful with the counter and things written on chalk boards. You always feel at home and of course the food is always so good and plentiful. The chicken salad wrap was great. The potato salad was clearly freshly made and perfect. The pancakes were excellent and a huge portion. You have to pay $1 for real maple syrup and only a small thing of it, so that's not great. It's also only cash, but the prices are reasonable. This place should be on Diners Drive Ins and Dives.

Besito Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Jane G - Huntington, New York

Visited this branch of Besito with a South Shore friend and really enjoyed the experience. The space has been nicely renovated and has the subdued old world Mexican style associated with the original Besito without the stereotypical Mexican restaurant cliches one sees at its competitors....MoreWe are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Besito. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Pizzaiola

Reviewed By Gary P - Huntington Beach, California

Pizza was delivered to our work facility for employe luncheon. The pizza was just average in my opinion. The crust was a little chewy. The toppings were ok too. Nothing too special with their pizza. Didn't meet my expectations however.
