The absolute best ice cream place I've been to! And I have lived all over the U.S. and overseas. The owner ("Mr. Ice Cream ") was fabulous to talk to and they make their own ice cream!! I can't stop talking about how great their ice cream is!
Great ice cream, very friendly staff. Would go back! Loved their PB ripple ice cream and the chocolate chocolate ice cream.
Absolutely wonderful! Visiting from Texas and tried their pumpkin. praline and cream flavor. Unusual and the best treat I've had since we arrived. Too bad I found this place the next to last day here,

Always very clean and has both indoor and outdoor seating which is very nice. The staff is always very friendly and I like their reward program. I had Red Velvet cake flavor today and it was awesome!
Creamy and some flavors are good. I'm use to orange leaf... and this place did not have as many selections and the flavors were not as good but it will do. Staff were very pleasant.
I can't get enough of this place! It's clean, the staff is friendly and the yogurt is always delicious. My son enjoys the fruity flavors and colorful toppings. I love the low sugar and low carb options with healthy toppings like nuts and fruit. You can also splurge here and get chocolate with chocolate, covered in chocolate with a side of chocolate! Price is the same as all the other make your own yogurt places. The best part , trying a sample before you commit to a whole cup. Make sure you get a frequent customer smiles card!

We've eaten here a few times and it's always been great. They have some different choices than every other sub place. Nice change of pace.
When I say don't judge a book by its cover...I mean this joint looks modest- but the PIE is to DiE....for... You won't regret the stop- plus everyone is incredibly friendly
Love this place. The food is always made fresh and the owners are the friendliest people I have met. Highly recommend them.

Super friendly staff, fast service, tasty sandwiches. Only reason I'm giving this 4 stars and not 5 is that the bathroom wasn't super clean and the soap was out. But definitely worth a second trip!
I was so hopeful we had found a (new to us) neighborhood gem - yelp rated it 4.5 stars Service was friendly, facility was ok cleanliness wise. Food pricing was that of a quality deli. Food itself left a lot to be desired. Both my husband and I chose not eat our sandwiches because they were just not good. They looked good, but the taste was just not there. Unfortunately, we won't be giving it another try in the future.
This morning I had a bacon egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel instead of on white bread .. It was awesome! If you love bacon, they give you a generous portion on your sandwich! It was only $3.99 which is a great price. In previous experiences I have had the pastrami sandwich, which is piled high with delicious meat! I have also had the meatball hero, which is always a go-to for dinner when I don't feel like cooking. I also have had the Cobb salad with the avocado ranch and it is the best Cobb salad I've had in a while! Everyone always suggests the Cuban to me, but I am Cuban, so I only eat those made from home. There are a few seats inside, but I always get mine to go. They make you feel like family there, even if you've never met whoever is taking your order.

I'm usually here 2 or 3 days a week. If there is no line they see me pull up and have my coffee ready for me by the time I walk in. When I'm next in line when they are busy they always get my order when they are getting the order of the person in front of me so it's ready to go when I get to the register. Very friendly, they know most of the regulars that come in. This is a regular stop for me when I'm on my way home from work.
I come here everyday. Sometimes twice. The staff is friendly and knows your order before you walk in the door. The same people are here from open to close. Always happy to see you.
You should definitely know what you want, because if they are busy you will start ordering as soon as they can make eye contact with you. I unfortunately am not a huge fan of their coffee or their donuts, but my wife absolutely loves their hash browns. They are always polite and go as fast as they can.

Best food in the area! Took awhile before I finally stopped by this place one day, and is now the only place I eat at when in the area.
Randomly stopped here to pick up some sandwiches for lunch at the park. It's a tiny place with clearly a group of regulars. The sandwiches were very good and generously sized. Maybe a hair too expensive for chicken salad, grilled cheese, and ham but still very tasty. The service was quick and made to order. Looks like a good place to come grab a quick breakfast or lunch to go. We'll probably go back again since it's so close to home and has a kid friendly menu.
Anytime I'm lucky enough to be in the area for lunch I always stop here to get the cheese steak stuffed roll sub. It's a technique I haven't seen any where else but here. I would recommend trying one of these.

Best Chinese food I've ever had. Every one in this place is super nice. Crab crepes are delicious, wonton soup is good and I love the double cooked shrimp. Go before 3 to get lunch special price.
Fabulous sushi, though it is a Chinese and Japanese restaurant. Dynamite was delicious. Spicy rolls were all great, especially the chef's special volcano. The wait staff was amazingly helpful in choices and friendly and efficient in service
Okay food but Terrible customer service. It seems as if they were very accommodating, talkative and friendly only to their white customers on the day that I was there. I dont know the exact reason why. I dont know if they're racist of black people or just afraid of black people. You cant win them all. It was very disappointing to experience this. I have no desire to go back at this moment. I hope they read this and reconsider how they treat their customers of all colors and backgrounds.

The Bangkok Oriental

Reviews:
The wanton soup was tasteless with overcooked noodles. The chicken basil was exceptionally salty. The green curry was good but separated and the Tom Ka soup was good, not amazing but good. Overall the service was ok, the waiter didn't hear my order for Tom Ka soup, even though I said it twice. I found this ironic since he tried really hard to up sell us, which both of us found annoying. I will credit him this, he noticed that the wanton soup was untouched and removed it from the bill, however he did so with the excuse of its tasteless quality being because they don't use msg. I wanted to say you can use some of the salt from my basil chicken.
This place gets five stars based on deliciousness. Forever ago I found this place because I went to drivers ed down the street. I lived off the Spring rolls and Rice 5 nights a week. I went back today with with my mom. The interior of the place, I don't believe has changed in 15 years. I am never one to go to a restaurant on looks though. I am there for the food, and the food was BANGIN'. I got the drunken noodles, she got a veggie dish and we split the "fried candies". We were also served a complementary spring roll which was delicious. The fried food are crisp, hot and not greasy. My chicken drunken noodles were the perfect amount of heat. I like really really spicy food, and this was great. They had a nice green chile sauce on them. The noodles were a bit thin. I like those really wide rice noodles, but I won't take away stars for it! So So good! My mom is not a heat freak like I am . She asked for her dish spicy and regret the decision. The very kind waitress saw her eyes watering and offered to remake it for her, a empathetic accommodation that I've never seen anywhere else! Word to the wise, unless you like that burn your throat feeling DON'T ask for things "spicy" at a thai restaurant! Haha. Overall this place is a great gem in a overlooked location, I definitely want to reestablish my status of a "regular" here.
We've been here twice. The first time the food was good but not amazing. This last time we went, every item was hands down some of the best Thai food we've had... And we LOVE Thai food. This last trip we had Spring Rolls, Shrimp Toast, Pud Thai & Drunken Noodles. They were all to die for. If I was able to give it a 4 1/2 stars I would because my first trip was more like 4 star food, but the point is neither time were we disappointed! Lunch portions were great for the price. I felt like each our dishes could have fed two for lunch. A great local Thai spot is a treasure. Give this place a shot!

Best pizza ever!!!!! I moved to the Pasadena area about 2 years ago and my landlord told me about this place said the pizza was so good. And I've been a regular ever since! The delivery drivers are always so polite and I never have to wait long. Best pizza around!
Still poor . Whoever worked 6/19 and attempted to make food at 8pm needs to be fired . Ordered a BLT sandwich . Bacon was stale and gross . Completely not edible . It was gummy like the microwaved kind . My 8 month pregnant wife threw it away. My steak and cheese sub was weird. The sub was overly toasted. The core meat inside was cold. First thought ... Meat is made ahead of time and stored cold. Microwave it and slap a piece of cheese and call it a day . Carini's you are feeding people here . People are ingesting this. Take pride in your food! You're going to make people sick! $20 wasted . All food was thrown away. It's not worth a food born illness imo
Best Italian cold cut I've ever had. One day someone at the shop must have been bored and tossed some feta onto my Italian cold cut. I've been in love ever since. For a sub shop, ingredients taste quite fresh. Super friendly staff. If you're a regular, they'll hook you up. Delivery is almost guaranteed to be no longer than 40 minutes.

Checked out this place last night. I'm from Chicago, so it is a little hard to impress me with pizza out here. With that being said I gave this place a shot. The pizza wasn't bad but their sauce was way to acidic. They need to cut it with sugar or something. The crust could use some flavor also. Overall not bad , but due to the sauce and my hatred for heartburn I most likely won't be back.
First time trying this place. Reasonably priced. Was take out and ready right on time. Loads of toppings. Homemade crust. Got the godfather and a large cheese pizza. Huge pieces. So big i usually eat 4 pieces but could barely get 2 down. Would def recommend! No military discount, but that's OK. Its always good to ask.
Service can be slow. The pizza is pretty good, as well as the spaghetti. This is a great place if you are looking for a "quick-stop" Italian restaurant.
