Louie's Cafe

Louie does not make bad food. Have enjoyed every pizza I have had there and have brought many friends and family there as well. Antipasto, calzones, even the tiramisu is superb.. Not fancy, though he has recently upgraded his seating, parking can be tight, but prices are great and the food is fantastic.

Mario's Restaurant

Reviewed By Andy S

had the clams casino to share as an appetizer... out of this world!!crusty bread topped w mozzarella cheese with marinara sauce to dip... delicious!I had the veal Francese with extra lemon and the veggie was tomatoes n yellow squash (no idea what spice was in this veggie) but it was delicious!!!took home half of my entree n veggie plus my salad n bread. partner had chicken parmesan with corn souffle... corn souffle was to die for. he also had the minestrone soup which i tasted... delicious!we both ended up taking 1/2 our entree home... huge portions. highly recommend this restaurant. alba (the chef/owners wife) was charming. we called Greenville on our way home to forest city to check closing time. she was kind enough to say she would stay open for us!!it was an excellent dinner and i can't wait to go back n try another item on their great menu. kudos!! terrific restaurant with awesome cooking and fabulous service!

Stopped for lunch and from behind the counter comes a young man dressed in dirty blue jeans and looked as though he needed a bath. He put down the menus and walked away. We did the same.

Don's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By HardJax

Family went here for Sunday lunch.Waited about 20 minutes to be seated when there was several empty tables in plain sight.Overheard what I’m guessing was the manager telling woman ahead of us that they were really short handed so I gave them a pass on the wait.Kids had pizza buffet which they said was good.Girlfriend had chicken fettuccine Alfredo was she said was very good.I wasn’t feeling like Italian so I ordered the Don’s burger.I swear I can’t figure out how they manage to get a cheeseburger with lettuce,tomato,sautéed onions and mushrooms so bland.It looked delicious but it was far from it.The inside of the patty was an odd gray color too,I’m guessing from being frozen for a while then over cooked?I managed to eat about half of it because I was hungry.ANY fast food burger is better than Don’s.When we were leaving,the lady at the cash register asked how was everything and I told her I didn’t care for the burger and I couldn’t eat it all.Her reply was,”Oh well,hopefully it’ll be better next time “ I thought,there won’t be a next time for me.
