Re: “Villa Capri

I wanted to like this place. I had read reviews to try the ravioli and the pizza - that this place was a throw back from the 60's and had really good food. The older lady with the glasses was our waitress. There was another heavy set waitress that was sitting down by the register the whole time eating. She didn't get up from eating the whole time we were there. We arrived at 4ish on a Friday evening to an almost empty dining room. Our waitress did not smile the entire time she waited on us except to give us our check. We had to ask for refills for our drinks and bread. She "threw" our food at us and gave us bread - but no butter. And didn't come back to ask if we needed anything. She was more preoccupied with the gentleman guest that she was sitting with talking about her son that doesn't smile. I thought, if I had a mom like you I wouldn't smile either! Raviolis were mediocre and I had Spaghetti with mushrooms and a house salad. The dressing was great on the salad. The spaghetti with mushrooms was ok. I wouldn't order it again. But I'm not coming back because of the service. A 30.00 meal and you get treated like you are wasting their time. My first and last time there for sure!

Re: “Los Tules Mexican Restaurant

If you are looking for a great dinner bargain, and who isn't, go with the taco's on Wednesday night. $1 each. 3 is PLENTY unless your a huge, huge eater. And don't forget the happy-hour Margarita's. Served in a smaller glass for only $3. They are so powerful! One....and I'm done for the night!!

Re: “The Boobie Trap Bar

It's a dive, no doubt about it but the beer is super cold the people are friendly and Brian Chambers (the owner) is a huge supporter of local music. One of my favorite places to go catch a show. Well worth the drive!

Re: “PotPie

We really enjoyed it. The small dinning room ambiance and food were much better than most large Plaza restaurants.

We had seared scallops in a mushroom risotto w/ asparagus and a chicken pot pie.

The Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding was amazing! We will go back for this alone.

The only downsides were some of the food tended to be a tad too salty and there seemed little other choice to drink. We do not drink cocktails or wine. I had an iced tea but it didn't taste right.

Re: “The Jerusalem Café

It is not often a restaurant does more than provide good food and good service. Considering myself a bit of a foodie, I dine often, and expect the utmost service and quality; however, one local spot went so above and beyond at a recent dining experience I felt compelled to share.

Having just completed an art class, two friends and I were looking for a good meal a bit off the beaten path. Something we didn’t have everyday and was a good local spot. We decided on Jerusalem Cafe, for some great food. We had all been here several times before and enjoyed it immensely. The hummus, baba ganoush, and dolmas we ordered as an appetizer were simply delectable. Warm pita bread accompanied the sample appetizer platter. Conversation came to a halt as moans and groans of pure delight echoed from our table. The quiet dimly lit restaurant was surely bothered by the sounds of joy coming from our table.

Then came the main course. We had each ordered some sort of pita sandwich, two of us the gyro, and one shawarmah chicken. Again, our conversation stopped and the cacophony of happy eating continued.

Then the noises from our table turned, and turned quickly. My friend yelled in a panic to call 911, as his wife shook uncontrollably, her eyes seemingly rolling back. Screams came from across the restaurant, other patrons starred as we quickly tried to figure out what was going on. The convulsions lasted for what seemed like hours, but really only minutes.

Within a few more minutes the fire fighters and EMTs arrived, completely disrupting this quiet, dimly lit establishment. Service halted while everyone starred to see if she was alright. “A seizure”, the paramedic said, “we need to take her to the hospital.“ Time continued to move slowly, and all focus stayed on my friend. Our server and the manager both quickly jumping to do whatever we needed. The EMTs loaded her up and off to the hospital we went.

Once the chaos had calmed and the doctors assured us she would be okay, we breathed. And then it dawned on me. We had walked out on our tab, something none of us had ever done before. The next day I went back, looking to thank our server and the manager as well as pay our debt. I met the most gracious manager. He immediately recognized me and said “is she okay.” I replied yes, and that I needed to pay our tab. He refused. He said, “Just make sure she is okay, this one is on us.”

Too often we go through life and are disappointed by the compassion people share. For us, that Wednesday evening we experienced great compassion that will not be forgotten. The food, always fantastic, the ambiance exactly what we wanted, but more than that a place we truly feel treats its customers as neighbors, not clients.

Thank you Jeresualem Cafe. We look forward to our next, hopefully less eventful, visit.

Re: “Le Monde Bakery

We are fortunate to work near Le Monde. While we enjoy the Chicken Curry Soup on a regular basis, we are both partial to the Seafood Bisque served on Tuesdays.

Re: “Hamburger Mary's

I would be happy to give them 4 stars, as their food is good, but be prepared for the slow and spotty service. I have eaten there 10 - 15 times (they are very conveniently located for me at lunchtime) since they opened, but I don't go more often because it takes so long. Also, there are not many lowfat options - lots of deliciously unhealthy ones though!

Re: “Wheat State Pizza

Unfortunately, I had the displeasure of eating at the Wheat State Pizza in Olathe. We walked in at 5:00, ordered at 5:05 and received our pizza, which was for dine in, at 6:20. Thats right, it took 1 hour and 15 minutes for 1 large pizza. We were told when we ordered that our wait would be 10 to 15 minutes. What happened?? When we walked in to the restaurant at 5:00 pm we were the only ones in the entire restaurant. Around 5:30, others started to come in and order. While waiting, the man that I assume was the manger, offered others free drinks while they waited. We were never offered free drinks even though we waited an hour and 15 minutes. When the manager finally brought us our pizza he stated that someone placed our pizza in a to go box instead of bringing it out to us. Never did we recieve an apology for our food taking so long nor did we even get offered compensation for our horrible customer service. This place is a joke.

Re: “Jerry's Bait Shop -- CLOSED

Just a bar. We went there for something different but it was nothing special. Started out with soup and it was really good . The motel advertisment said voted #1 pizza in KC. So we ordered the all meat large. BIG MISTAKE! Wow we each couldn't even finish 1 piece. It came to the table smelling like garlic. Which can be ok but after taking a bite the taste had way to much pepper and it also was only half cooked. We paid the bill but shouldnt have and left. Went to steak and shake instead. Wasted evening.
