Bellacino’s Pizza & Grinders

Stopped in for some pizza and was not disappointed. Started with some mozzarella sticks and fries then worked into the Bellecino's special pizza. Nice shop with some tasty eats.
I was very disappointed with my visit on Sunday afternoon. I called ahead to order a steak grinder and I showed up 3 minutes before it was supposed to be ready. There was just one person in line in front of me and I waited for 10 minutes to pay for my order which obviously had been sitting there. It was cold. Also, the bread was cut very unevenly so on the ends there was a a very thick piece of bread with a very thin piece. If they want to stay in business they better pick up the pace for waiting on customers. By the way, the guy in front of me was the only other person in the whole restaurant at 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
Chicago Steak grinder was pretty darn good. Self-serve fountain drinks, Good service. Dining room was empty, but they were quite busy in the back. TV's in the dining room and plenty of seating.

China Express

2458 Orchard Lake Rd

Reviews:
China Express is a small two-table carry-out place located in a strip mall. Its so unimposing, we almost drove by it without notice. We walked in and ordered to go. For two meals, we waited no more than 10 minutes. The menu had most of the traditional items you can expect from a Chinese carry-out as well as a few Thai items thrown in. I ordered the Szechuan Beef combo (comes in mild, medium or spicy) with fried rice. I had no complaints. The first thing I noticed was how much food we got. The combo portions were huge. In your typical large, three-compartment take-out box, two were overflowing with rice and the large one was filled with delicious beef and veggies soaking in a spicy sauce. And you will get a lot of sauce. Consider this a warning to handle your boxes with care or you may end up a saucy mess. With the combo, you also get an eggroll shoved in there for good measure. All that food for a touch over $8 and it's easily split into two meals. I was incredibly satisfied with it for exactly what it was: a fast, easy meal as you would expect to get from a Chinese take-out place.
Went here for the 1st time, and only went because it was on my way home and I was craving Chinese food.... Honestly, I wont be back. I was told my order would take 10 mins, it didn't get it for 25 minutes (I was the only person in there!!!) I ordered the Pad Thai and General Tso's Chicken Combo, along with fried dumplings. My husband said the Pad Thai was pretty good and so were the dumplings, but I felt far different about their General Tso's! It's almost like they breaded it with cornbread. The breading is SO thick and you get this little piece of dry chicken in the middle of it. And the sauce is VERY thick. My egg roll tasted like dirt (literally), I took 2 bites and threw it out. Sadly disappointed.. but can also see why I was the only customer in there. Also, I heard the lady taking take out orders over the phone.. she is not very pleasant. Overall, I won't be back.
I ordered a carry out last night and it was great. Pad thai is very good and so is the general tsao chicken. Egg rolls are just average. Good service and nice people.

Taco Bell

Reviews:
When I am craving some deliciousness Americanized mexican fast food I come here. This Taco Bell stands above the other Taco Bells in the area. Why? The service is great. The people at the drive through are very friendly. My delicious Steak Quesadilla, Nachos, and Fiery Doritos Locos Taco tasted very good and hot. Best of all I had no toilet runs in the time it took my stomach to digest my delicious Taco Bellness. If you are craving Taco Bell, but are unsure which Taco Bell establishment to visit in Michigan, give this one a shot. The building and interior is really nice. Friendly people. Delicious Taco Bell food that is five star Taco Bell food. (Think outside the bun!)
If any taco bell is gonna get your order wrong IT WILL be this one. Thank God since moving to California I don't touch the stuff more than every couple of years but, when I lived down the street from here I absolutely just could not leave this line without first checking my order before we drove away. I can't count the times I got all the way home before I learned my lesson about this place. I hope the last couple years it has changed but, last I remember worst taco bell ever!
I fell yesterday and the doc thinks I tore my meniscus.... so it's crutches and bed rest for this girl!!! Which means I'm not spending time in the kitchen making gourmet meals. I passed out from taking my meds and didn't wake up until after any normal delivery places had closed. So I decided to swing through Taco Bell. I ordered the chalupa meal with Baja chicken. She explains they don't have Baja sauce anymore and during the third time of explaining. It, I say.... "Ok, I'll just take regular chicken." To which she replies with an attitude telling me I don't need to cut her off or yell at her and rants about how disrespectful I was and I didn't need to yell at her. She then asks what else she can get for me, to which I responded with, you don't need to get me shit.... and drove off listening to obscenities loudly being blurted from the speaker. So I drive up to leave out of the driveway and as I drive past the window (where there was currently a car picking up their order) she screams out the driver though and tells me I'm a fat ass. LOL That may be true darling, but hello pot.... meet the kettle, newsflash, we're both fat.

Tim Horton’s

Reviews:
Overall unpleasant staff. And their products are almost always cold/stale or simply... Not there. Needs to fall under new management. Or better yet, turn into a Dunkin doughnuts. Only good thing I will come to Tim Hortons for is their French vanilla cappuccino . (premade in a machine) guess that proves my point doesn't it :s
Poor service, unusually high staff turnover. Went there one morning at 10:00 a.m. and they only had 5 donuts available. Last week they held up a line of customers just to look for a box to hold 10 cups only to find they were out of boxes. Don't waste your time, go next door to Ellen's or down Telegraph to Panera.
Very friendly staff, donuts are always delicious and this location has improved greatly when it comes to quick service. The hours aren't the best because they close early, but still a great location.

Wendy’s

Reviews:
I took pain meds and passed out around 5, expecting to wake up from my nap a couple hours later.... not after midnight. So I was like, "HEY! There's a Wendy's around the corner.... their slogan is 'Eat great, even late.'" Aren't they usually open at 1am? Cars in the parking lot, lights on in the store.... I pull up to order my pecan chicken salad, store is closed. BOOOOO!
We go to this Wendy's rather routinely, and for the most part, they are 'okay', if not a little slow through the drive-thru. Yesterday, my son and I drove through for 'dinner' before his catechism class. We ordered a 'small' 10 piece tenders meal and a 'medium' Cod sandwich meal. We did NOT receive a receipt, but since the experience was already so crazy, I did not bother to ask for one. From now on, I will NEVER go through their drive through without getting the receipt. It cost me $20.90 for those two menu items.......They told me $12-something, which would have been about right. Why was it crazy, you might ask? We visited the drive-thru at about 5:30PM. We were the 4th car in a string of cars. This Wendy's does not handle it's drive thru well, and we had a bit of a wait. When we made it to the speaker to place our order, we were told they were out of their Coke products (Coke, Sprite, and ...Rootbeer?...) My son wanted a Rootbeer, and I wanted a Coke. So, he ended up getting a Dr. Pepper, and absolutely no other pop available appealed to me. They had lemonade (which is way too sweet for me) and unsweetened iced tea (which NEEDS sugar!!), so I asked if he could mix those two for me as my drink. He said sure, and it turned out ok. I'm now wondering if he charged me $6 for the drink??? UGH!!!! This was a very dissatisfying experience, made even more so by the obvious over charge that took place. Lesson learned......GET A RECEIPT, AND REVIEW IT!!!
I guess they just assume you want it plain? You guys owe me lettuce, tomato, pickel, onion etc..
