They have more food options than they did last time I was in, but the special coffees are over-sugared as usual. Yikes. Nice and un-raucous, this place caters to the paper reading crowd but not the plug in your laptop and commandeer the table for 3 hours folks, thank goodness. Come in and you WILL find a place to sit down.

The Iron Grill Mongolian BBQ

Reviewed By Brian H - Johnstown, United States

This establishment keeps tight control on the meat for your BBQ. They would benefit from visiting a Huhot Mongolian Grill and seeing how they are set up. They had adequate ingredients to choose from, but not near enough sauces to top it off with. They ask you what meat you want, instead of allowing you to pick and choose it. My meal was okay, but I wouldn't go back.

Legendary Doughnuts

Reviewed By Becki T - Monument, Colorado

Large doughnuts and holes but they are not heavy. People rave about VooDoo Doughnuts and although creative, Legendary has them beat in flavor profiles, texture and yumminess. Try the Fireball, chocolate peanut butter or glazed. You will not be sorry well only for reading a post that was as cheesily titled as this one. But, it is so true and I need a giggle, even at myself now and then.

Nothing exotic here. Jersey Mike's is a great place to pick up a sandwich (which for me is two meals). The staff is always pleasant, the ingredients are fresh, and the food is delicious.

It is really worth trying some of the breakfast bowls. I like acai and strawberry. The service is superb. I received extra in a small cup and also one time when I stopped by and my Groupon could not be used because of technical difficulties, I was treated to a grand smoothie of my choice.

Absolutely great place. I was there three time and enjoyed not only food but polite young people, smiling.
Very, very nice.

Thank you Jamba Juice.

Nikki's Restaurant & Lounge

Reviewed By fairydogmotherof2 - Lostine, Oregon

We were seated right away, served quickly by a very nice server and were well looked after. They serve HUGE portions and it's very well done. I loved the garlic mashed potatoes, sadly I couldn't finish them! The did provide a box for taking to have later. I think this is a family run place and they are good at taking care of and feeding you!

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers

Reviewed By SouthEndMCgang - Seattle, Washington

Gotta say, the Red Robin stores I have been to recently are a miserable fail...Most recently, the store in Covington on 272nd (Kent Kangley). Took our 2 grandkids out for dinner and (except for our server Maria), this store was a fail. My wife ordered the Teriyaki burger. It tasted OK, but the presentation was poor and was definitely a "knife and forker" because she could not even come close to picking it up. One granddaughter ordered the mac and cheese and it was typical velveeta type but refills were offered. My other granddaughter ordered the corn dog bites and they were extremely greesy. You could almost wring them out. I ordered the appetizer wedge salad and a cup of chili. The wedge came on a plate that was smaller than the wedge itself. I had to navigate cutting it in half and moving it to another plate so that I could eat it in sections. Tasty enough, and semi fresh. The cup of chili was cool in temperature and was about 4 spoonfulls in volume...hardly even a cup of product. I think I will wait awhile before trying this or another RR again. There are plenty of good quality burger joints to pick from.

Trapper's Sushi

Reviewed By Mike M - Maple Valley, Washington

What a shame because we like the food. We arrived at about 5:40 pm in time for "Happy Hour". Got menus within a few minutes. I could tell the bartender was in way over his head. The place was pretty full already and then he had to change out a keg. OMG! We were sitting there while he messed with it trying to get beer to come out of the tap, then finally some beer! He made a comment about the taps hadn't been cleaned for a long time. I was shocked and asked the two girls next to us what he said and they confirmed I heard correct! Gross! Thank God for bottled beer. The whole place needs cleaning. The floors are slippery, especially if your feet are wet. So after several minutes or so of watching him make drinks and prepping take out orders, we asked if it was still "Happy Hour". He said yes and we ordered 3 rolls and some edamame. So now its a couple minutes to 6 pm. At 6:10 or so I had drank my beer and watched as the restaurant servers marched in and out picking up food. Cudo's to them. Still no Edamame and out of beer. Unbelievable. I told my wife at the time that he never went to the POS and entered our order. At about 6:15 my wife asked if he'd put our order in and he said yes he had. That was bull----! I left discussed and (hungry) ran errands for 1/2 an hour and came to pick my wife up and still NO FOOD. She has way more patients than me. I can't stand poor service. I said lets go and I'll be damned that after a hour of waiting he showed up with the Edamame as she was telling him we were done waiting and he gave her a tab for the drinks! Any place else would have comp'd the drinks! Then he says he would CANCEL our order. Needless to say were done with Trappers because of POOR service! Too bad.

The Rock Wood Fired Kitchen

The Rock Wood Fired Kitchen is a family friendly, full service, unique dining concept. Though the focus may be on our hand-tossed wood fired pizzas, The Rock offers a variety of Foods for all moods. Throw in our microbrews and custom Rocktail drinks, and you truly have something for everyone to enjoy. And don't worry about the children, we've got a full kids' menu for those little rockstars!

We like to order the California Dreamin and Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy pizzas. We also order the Brown Sugar Mozzarella Bread. I like the Dreamweaver drink. Other people I take enjoy the beer selection. If you like music, gourmet pizza and drinks, this is a good place to go. They have free parking and take reservations. They do offer a good selection of food other than pizza. Vegetarians would have no problem finding options here.
