Brooklyn Pizzeria

Reviewed By Time4Pizza - Antwerp

Except for too much salt in the dough, the taste and texture of the pizza was ideal.

Not sure if the other location would be better but this location is so run down and almost nasty.

Staff didn't seem to care too much about service.

Luckily mellow mushroom is better even if it is more expensive.

Starbucks

Reviewed By USAsojourners - Fort Belvoir, Virginia

They took a list order from a young lady that had around 8 special order drinks. They had one person making the drinks. Before anybody started helping the drink maker there were 14 people standing around waiting. It took about 20 minutes for me to get a small coffee frap, and when them I had to go to the manager who could not find my cup.

McKellars Lodge Restaurant

Reviewed By NewTarheel - Lillington, NC

It was very quiet for McKellars Lodge when we went for lunch today, I guess many of the regulars are on leave. As always we enjoyed the meal, but the person in charge of the buffet line was a bit off today. Everything was almost on empty before it pans were refilled. All is all a great meal for $9.50.

Good BBQ here and good service as well. Nice variety of flavors and options as well. I do think portion size of bbq plate was a little small, but I still enjoyed the meal and would return.

Habana Cuban Restaurant

Reviewed By breen081 - Fayetteville, North Carolina

The food is palatable with a variety to chose from and the service was nice too. It’s not the most amazing place to sit in but the atmosphere is cozy. The only downside was the price but you can’t expect to get real authentic food and not pay an extra buck.

Airborne Lanes - Strike Zone Snack Bar

Reviewed By Troy H - Fayetteville, North Carolina

I have been eating here since 1983. Ft Bragg gets busy around lunchtime and the Airborne Lanes is an out of the way location to eat without the hassle of going of base.
Pros: Food is always cooked fresh. Fries are always hot. The burgers are large. Ingredients of entrees are fresh. They have a good variety of entrees to choose from. They do serve alcohol. Prices are reasonable. Very clean and modern with a friendly staff.
Cons: Wait times for food is about 10 minutes, Fountain drink selection is limited. Lunchtime TV is always on something terribly boring, and the burger patties are a little dry at times. A well kept secret and a favorite bowling location of paratroopers. Still the best bowling alley in Ft Bragg/Fayetteville area.

We had lunch here and everything was fabulous. The service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. It's a very Italian setting and we enjoyed that as well. I'm sorry we don't live closer (we're two hours away) or we would go here...MoreThank you for dining with us and that you were pleased with your experience. We hope you will visit us again!

CEDAR Point Restaurant

Reviewed By tikoy10 - Fayetteville, North Carolina

Feb 17 2016 Wife and I ate there for the first time. Home style hits the mark. I had the lunch special, flounder, corn, slaw and green beans, wife had corn beef hash breakfast. We both really enjoyed our food. It was very well cooked, just right. The decor was simple but felt like we were at a friends house. The staff were polite, friendly, and anticipated wants and needs very well.
We are defiantly going to eat here again.

Charleys Philly Steaks

Reviewed By Sue R - Boonton, New Jersey

Couldn't find the scheduled picnic that was moved someplace indoors on a rainy day during All American Week, so we stopped at the food court on Ardennes and decided to try Charley's. It's a fast food place with excellent Philly steak sandwiches!!! Lots of options, but we chose the regular Philly steak with cheese. Maybe it was because we were starving by then, but it was outstanding! I'd definitely go back!
