I have always enjoyed every smoothie I purchased. The variety is great but I' m beginning to find my favorites The staff have consistently been courteous and friendly. Booster Juice is starting to replace my bad habit of fast food and this is a good thing, as I need to watch my calories and increase my intake of fruit.
Ordering pizza for dinner is not complicated, its a quick and easy meal that many people enjoy. I ordered 2 pizzas for pick up from Haywoods Grill. I was told it would be ready in 45 minutes. Really?! 45 minutes to make me a pizza? I would understand if it was deliverd but I am picking it up. None the less I agreed and waited 45 minutes...I then go pick up my pizza, guess what...its not ready! wait 10 more minutes. 5 minutes short of an hour to make a pizza. I take my 2 pizzas home, open the box and just as a previous time the pizza dough was not cooked. Not only was it not cooked, there was no yeast in the dough.Its like chewing on rubber. Frustrated that this happened to me for the second time(not going to get started on the first time) I take them back and explain that this is the second time this has happened. They blame it on "a new cook." They tell me they can make me 2 new pizzas and compensate me. I say I will wait there for them...still took 40 min for the other pizzas, almost 2 hours waiting for 2 pizzas for pick up. No management around at all! When I recieve my other 2 pizzas I ask how I am going to be compensated, they tell me I wont be. I file a complaint with the companys website, to the owner/manager and recieve no reply. The pizza was disgusting and I will never order from there again.
I proselytize about this place to anyone who would listen. Once, I even convinced a van full of Boeing engineers to take a detour from their ride home to try the burgers there.
This is a franchised chain and I’ve been to four locations in the great LA area and now the one in Saskatoon. Despite having what I consider the best meat and buns I’ve ever had, the stores are folding and here is why: the restaurants are huge, barn sized affairs complete with their own bakery and butcher shop, arcade games hall, and indoor/outdoor seating.
Here are the goods: the in store meat shop and bakery supply the kitchen with fresh ingredients. The burger patties aren’t seasoned until just before they hit the grill. You choose the size of the burger, ranging from 1/3 to 1 full pound of meat. The fixings are self-service and the toppings bar, complete with even pump cheese for nachos, would rival any salad bar. Unrelated to the hamburger but noteworthy is the self-service fountain drinks, coffee, and that the place is licensed.
First heard about this place when it was featured on SCN, the now defunct public television station in Saskatchewan. A really nice story of someone who is trying to re-create the flavours from his homeland in the prairies. I skipped the plates that charge you essentially $5 for beans and rice (fillers) and opted to order two of each kinds of tacos, empanadas, quesadillas, and tamales for about $1.75 each. The portions left me wanting, but the flavours were dead on except for the tamales which were made with too much broth/liquid and not enough masa harina (perhaps they were running low?).
Loved the funky, bohemian decor and Mexican groceries when you walk in. Would have dined in but Uncle insisted it was a shady part of town.
Ordered take out on an early Saturday evening. Walked in and was intrigued by the simple, pared down menu, something drilled into me by watching Restaurant Makeover and Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmare, that good restaurants focus on a few things and do them well.
So I was disapointed when the vegetable currie that included in the description: fresh, local greens turns out to be frozen mixed vegetables and our chicken curry had the distinct aroma of something quickly reheated in the microwave. I distinctly recall while waiting for my food the owner made a point to tell me that the restaurant was so empty because they were catering a wedding that night. It made very little sense then, and it still makes little sense how their involvement with a wedding had anything to do with how many customers were eating there.
Went for lunch there recently was not overly impressed. Ordered the Quesadilla with salad. The Quesadilla was not very good and very small portion for the size, it was not even a full quesadilla and could have used some cheese inside for flavor. Salad was decent, service was decent overall.
I know the draw is the coffee, but once you've tried one of the desserts, you will be in seventh heaven. They have a nice, large selection of treats that are fresh and delicious. Whether you want something gooey and chocolately or something light and fruity, you will be happily satisfied with the selection.
The coffee choices are plenty, but not so many that you would have trouble deciding. They also often have seasonal special flavours that have never failed to please. Courteous, friendly staff, too.
The layout is comfy yet modern, with a flat screen video fireplace and plush couch. The bathroom is not only clean but pleasing to the eye; really cool faucets!
As a family of 3 living nearby this restaurant, we have begun to frequent it. The food is always good, fresh and hot and served in a timely manner. The thing I appreciate most is the above par service we have had every time we have been there. The servers we have had were always polite, helpful and courteous without being "sickeningly sweet" if you know what I mean. They know the food they are serving and what goes into it. We've been there when it's extremely busy which means a bit of a wait now and then but have always had apologies that weren't really necessary because we can see with our own eyes how busy they are. Love it, would recommend it to anyone.
