BEST neighborhood bar for: -getting very drunk for cheap -guaranteed good time when with friends -open late hours and every single holiday -local neighborhood people watching -karaoke and general debauchery
resist the temptation. The prices are low and I found this place using and app on my phone the service was awful the food had no taste and had not been seasoned. The chicken wings literally had been dropped in old grease with nothing on them and the shrimp was the same way. on a Friday evening happy hour there were approximately 50 guest there was 1 waitress and 1 bartender for the entire place. They had all you can eat shrimp and it took over 30 minutes between plates.
Just great. Totally dive. And I love a real dive spot. Mostly all regulars and the drinks are awesome.

An experience not to be missed! Great food and wait staff. Biggest problem for me is deciding what to order from extensive menu. Everything is well worth ordering! Try to meet Brian, the owner.
I love this place! Whenever I would lock myself out the house I would sit here and do my homework until my mom got off work. I loved the family atmosphere of the place and the Greek salad, pizza, and French fries.
The pizza is AMAZING! Very friendly staff especially if you meet Brian. Haven't had anything bad from here, even the breakfast is good. Been coming here since I was a child and although the menu had added more items the staples are still here. My family still comes in from town demanding pizza oven.

Geppetto Catering

4505 Queensbury Rd

Reviews:
I used Geppetto Catering for a military event and worked with Martina to personalize my reception menu for 50 people. Everything was fantastic, from the menu items to presentation. Martina was on site the entire time and ensured from set up to clean up that the event ran smoothly. I was very happy with the quality of food--the hummus and tapenade platters were exceptionally delicious. I brought in my own cake and the catering team cut it without any extra cost. Martina was a dream to work with and communicated very well the entire time while we planned, adjusted the menu and estimated numbers. The final price I paid was worth every penny, as the only thing I did for my reception was bring the cake and take home a small amount of leftovers (which Martina graciously packed for me). Thank you again to Geppetto and Martina for a wonderful day!
A top notch service! The food is always incredible, the team is remarkably helpful and strong at building a plan to meet our limited budget. Their commitment to the community is always recognized. We've consistently received favorable feedback from our guests and partners - can't beat a strong, local, sustainable business with delicious food. We're hooked!
They came to our office park today with free wares in hopes of gaining some new customers. Food-wise, we totally would, and love that they are sustainable. Yay for not trashing the earth. Buuuut.... no thanks for being rude to potential customers!! With an audience, they were overly nice, sucking up to everyone in line. However, when we passed by later and noticed they were about to throw out their leftovers, we graciously offered to help by eating them. That's when the fangs came out! They were totally rude to us, and even rolled their eyes. They withheld plates and utensils, even though there were stacks left. We came back with our own plates to "clean up" the remaining food -- in the interest of sustainability, of course. We couldn't believe how mean they were!

Pollo Fiesta

6408 Kenilworth Ave

Reviews:
I love this place! Food is always good and the price is right. The staff are very friendly and always attentive. I work close nearby and this is the go to place for lunch and take out. I recommend the half-chicken dinner with plantains and rice/beans for lunch. I love me some Pollo Fiesta!
There a precious few eats around the Riverdale Rd area, but these folks have created a local gem. Authentic entrees and appetizers--try the chicharones and yucca. Great service--practice your latent Spanish. Great value for luncheon speceials--lower prices, larger portions (take away boxes are easy here). Pollo Fiesta is there to show that BM on south down the road what can be done with chicken and more. You see not only many locals, but also lots of office staff and law enforcement there--best to behave. Added plus, they usually keep the futbol on and telenovelas off during the lunch hour. Consistently first-rate eats for the lunch and dinner hours. Always fresh and they keep the complimentary chips and salsa coming with never a flinch.
This is one of those awesome places that has gotten better each time I have eaten at it. It was a chinese perma buffet forever........then it became what I like to call "The Party Chicken". Watching the place change from a chinese perma buffet to what it is now was great. It has slowly gotten better and better. This is what a neighborhood place should be. I recommend: The Pupsa's The Roasted Chicken - give the fries a go so you can try the yummy sauce. The Plantanos and Fritos - or fried bannana, beans and rice - get them to give you the sour cream with it...

Alamo Mexican Restaurant

Reviews:
It was ok but not great. Enjoyed the serenading guitar duo.
When we first moved to the area, we asked if there was anywhere we could get some good Mexican food. The Alamo was recommended by my wife's sister so we decided to give it a try, and let me say we were not disappointed! The food was fast, delicious and fresh. All in all, it was a pretty authentic experience in my opinion. I mean, we had to have our menu translated by the only English speaking waitress in the whole place! If I remember correctly, a lot of the menu actually was in English, we just wanted to order from the parts that were in Spanish in hopes of getting something more authentic. Our struggle to translate certain words eventually paid off when our huge dinner began showing up. We got some dinner for two deal that included tamales, taquitos, enchiladas, rice, beans, some hot broth thing, and more...pretty much the whole shebang. It was all very delicious, and waaaay too much food for two normal people*. Throw in a couple of Spanish guitars performing in the background all night, and you've got a great Mexican food experience. Even if you want to argue the quality or authenticity of the food, the ambiance and experience as a whole was awesome. Well worth the trip, and the price. Definitely go if you live in the area. It may not be worth a drive across DC, but for sure a place to put on your "to try" list if you're local. We'll definitely be heading back there real soon. *We ate it all anyway, and then wiped the plates clean.
Some of the best nachos I've tasted from any resturant yet!. A plate is served with 6 handmade nachos per order. Each nacho starts with a brownish colored tortilla chip. Then a spoonfull of fresh made refried beans are placed on top. The beans are not runny but more of the solidified type of refried beans. Then comes the deep yellow longhorn cheddar cheese on top of that. Finished up with a slice or two of fresh jalapeno. After being hand assembled upon a plate, the plate is put into a broiler just long enough to melt the cheese and brown the edges of the tortilla chips. Ummm good!

Decent place. They make pretty good fried rice but like most carryouts in the city or PG they don't put any vegetables in the fried rice so while tasty theres no color or anything nutritious in it. No carrots, peas etc. The French fries are good though. They do speak some Spanish. Overall average carry out.

I'm a little disappointed this visit. This is my favorite spot for West African food. The food lacked flavor but was overwhelmed with spice. It was so spicy that it was almost not palatable. Usually there is spice, but is muted.. Kind of like a kick. This was so overwhelming that it was more like a knock out. Also, the meat was not flavorful and was tough. I'm not sure if it's under new ownership or the cooks are different, but this is not what I'm used to and I've been coming here for years. Please go light with the red pepper flakes and taste the food before you serve it. Everything did look good, sadly it did not taste as good as it looked. I also saw the lady put a pot on the very dirty kitchen floor to clean it. This place has definitely gone downhill; no longer my favorite.
The quality of food and service has gone downhill at this restaurant. I've been going here for sometime and each time, I seem to be disappointed. :( The phone is always busy but yet when you get there, no one is on the phone taking orders. I've ordered food, paid for it, only to be told, the food that I just paid for is not available. It seems as if you have to wait for hours even though there may only be 2-3 people in line. Also, the food isn't that good anymore. :(
The food supposedly is good here. My friend orders from here a lot but my goodness the service is horrendous. God forbid you call in an order they have no system to take the name I guess regardless of whether it's in a computer or not. They just ask you what did you order as though they have no clue what it could be. Wish he didn't like the food so much but since he's from Nigeria and I'm not I guess he gets better service than I do. So good luck!

Boston Market

Reviews:
Decent food, but the place is filthy. Get take out. Don't eat in! Your feet sick to the floor. Your back sticks to the chair, and there were food scraps and greasy dust bunnies on the ledge of the window. I'm grossed out
This BM use to be better. It is a whole new personnel in there now. I use to come to this one quite often with the old personnel it was much better. The food was good back then. Now, it sucks. I bought a 1/2 chicken with sweet potatoes and mix veggies. The chicken wasn't season that well and it didn't taste done. The sweet potatoes (yams) were not done at all. I kept biting into raw sweet potatoes. I think I will take the extra trip to Grnbelt to see if they are up to par.
If someone is looking for the Worst Boston Market in the universe, you just found it. You know what you should expect when you hit a Boston Market restaurant. However, I wasn't prepared for this one. First, we were asked to pay first which I have never seen in any BM I've been before; maybe the neighborhood (which is not a very nice one) has forced them to change this, well.. OK. The service was really bad in attitude and quality, I really think that BM should send somebody to see how bad this location does to the brand. A shame.

Bono Pizza

5709 Riverdale Rd
Riverdale, 20737
Reviews:
Nope. Ordered from grubhub and thirty minutes later they called to tell us they were out of onion rings. It took thirty minutes for them to realize that, our to look at our order. Needless to say, it continued going downhill--by the time we got our food, an hour and a half later, my "enchiladas" were cold. There was no guacamole and the "steak" I ordered was taco beef. It was dry and crunchy, and looked like it had been sitting at the bottom of a stream table pan all day. My roommate ordered salad, with no onions and it came with onions, but no dressing! It's a shame we paid cash; otherwise I would have asked for my money back. The delivery guy was creepy and was walking around the outside of our house and being shady, and took a couple minutes carefully counting out his tips on our front stoop. Never again.
This place sucks. I place and order for delivery. My order was uncomplete, the fajitas i ordered they were really bad. Salty and over priced, i can make it better anyway i dont recomend it at all
Bono pizza is the worst service I ever seen, first they took them 1 hour and 25 minutes to received my order (via by Grub Hub), the food is bad especially the french fries and nachos, this first and last time I order from this establishment.
