Re: “Charisse keeps its part of downtown approachably fancy

oh a classy spot for a change.......when will Charles give us a food review of another bowling alley ...... you know the Pitch is hurting when they advertise for employees with pop ups on their home page and Charles allowance has been reduced so much he has to do reviews at bowling alleys and cross roads dumps.....

Re: “Charisse keeps its part of downtown approachably fancy

We dined there last weekend and I totally agree with you. We had made a reservation and explained it was a special occasion. They tried to seat the two of us at the front of the restaurant crammed between two other parties. We insisted on being in a little more secluded are. We ordered a LOT of appetizers and salad, and you're right, - not enough beets in the beet salad, but everything else was delicious. We didn't get bread either, and the waiter was less than attentive. We had to ask to have water refilled, and had to put our used dished on the table next to us. He wasn't haughty, just maybe a little too busy. They had several large parties and I only counted 3 waitstaff, one of which was doubling as bartender. I'd probably go back, and it wasn't expensive, but it wasn't cheap, and the service should match the food. They are too close to Le Fou Frog not to have better service.

We all know Charles wouldn't write this same review if this restaurants' "location" was in JoCo

Re: “Il Lazzarone opens in the River Market

My wife and I ate here on Saturday afternoon.
Great environment.
Server was awesome. He gave a little background on the process/oven/ingredients.
Food was amazing. We each got a pizza($14 & $16) and a beer($5 each)
Pizzas were absolutely fantastic. Pies were cut into 4 pieces each and we had 3 left over slices (just as good cold the next morning).
It is a bit pricey but that comes with good food I guess.

If you're looking for authentic pizza from Naples this is it. Fans of Pizza Hut, Dominoes, etc. will be disappointed.

This has to be the best restaurant I've ever been to! Drop what you're doing now and go there!

Re: “Hungry bowlers can find a few good things at Pinstripes

This place is OK, but seems to suffer from the " this is the hot place to be" syndrome of having high priced average food, poor service and did I say high priced. We spent $75 on two games of bowling, 1/2 hour of bocce, a salad, a glass of wine and two beers. I can think of better ways to spend $75 than 2 hours of bowling/bocce and beer.

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

I've been to Arris' about 7 times already. The bad ass buffet is the bomb for lunch. My hot ass wife loves going there for dinner and can't get enough of the Gyro's! I read Tara's comment about the sausage pizza and she nailed it. Not a better sausage in this town. Don't take my white ass word for it, get your sorry ass in there and try it yourself. Go Greek!

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

Every time I've been in, it has been fantastic! I never like the big everything-tastes-the-same pizza places as much as the ones with real character (Arris, Shakespeare's, Waldo Pizza). Arris has a taste that is unique, and I'm a fan for sure! Glad to have such a good option come to KC!

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

I fell in love with Arris' when I lived in Springfield for a short time. I have been twice, including opening night, since it opened in Lenexa and I was not disappointed. It was exactly as I remember it in Springfield. I have never had better pizza!!

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

I grew up eating at the original Arris' in Jefferson City, MO. I work for the exec office of a LARGE national pizza chain and I will tell you, there is NOTHING quite like authentic Greek pizza. If you want the real experience, forget the pseudo-"greek" food you've previously had around this area because nothing is authentic. Try it again, get the sausage then report back! Arris is the BEST hands down!

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

Every piece of pizza should have meat on it if you ordered it with meat. 25% without meat is not good. Why do you need to custom order crust? Chains usually don't roll in this town.

If you want to eat gyro meat, go to Mr Gyros!

Re: “Prairiefire's Paradise Diner gets only the wrong stuff right

sweeping generalizations by Zman and Foodsnob to denigrate those they disagree with - or those that disagree with Charles F. Why the hate? Not every business is going to be loved by everyone - that doesn't make the people that don't like it Rednecks, willing to accept any crap, too busy, locked in a 4 block zone around their house, etc. etc. There are a number of posts on here that agree and disagree with Charles F - I see no issue with that - it's an open forum. But, for you two, who try to come off as educated, sophisticated and worldly, you two are failing miserably.

Re: “Prairiefire's Paradise Diner gets only the wrong stuff right

looks like FOODSNOB has his panties in wad. maybe he's just mad that he can't afford to live in Johnson County because he partied too much at KU, couldn't handle the job market competition and can't a job as good as daddy. don't be a hater FOODSNOB, the nice folks in JoCo are the folks who contribute to the charities around town that folks like you couldn't get by without.

Re: “Prairiefire's Paradise Diner gets only the wrong stuff right

HonestAbby & AnonBoy-the reason being that you can pretty much pass any kind of crap off in Johnson County and they lap it up and consider it fab and the latest thing! Mainly because they NEVER leave a 4 block area in Johnson County to eat-their lives are too busy!!! Who am I?! Born and raised in Johnson County. I eat around a lot, Charles is usually right. And, I could give a shit what he thinks of me.

Re: “Arris' Pizza brings Jeff City — and gyros — to Lenexa

I consider myself a "foodie" and my stomach line will point this out. I tried this place and I was totally dissapointed. My friend and I ordered a pizza with gyro meat. tomatos and onions. The pizza dough tasted and had a feel of pita bread (Check menu). The menu tells you to order crust how you like, we noticed this when we looked at the menu after recieving pizza. The owner says here that they are meat heavy not true. The pizza we had had 9 pieces of gyro meat, 12 pieces of pizza. So 25% of pizza did not have the toppings that are advertised.

I will try Arris one more time because I always give restaurants two times to fail. I am not holding out much for this one though. What a disappointment!
