Sergi's Pizza

Reviewed By cocoajean - Boston MA

Mikey's special-cheese goes right on the crust with special tomato sauce on top. Yummy. Thick dough pizza, so it's very filling. We got a large and most of us could only eat two pieces. Nice pizza with a different twist. We had takeout, but the place was cute inside.

this dairy queen has seasonal help who don't care about the service,or at least don't appear to.food is d.q.but everytime you order you have to check you bag,as they often screw your order up,as well as making you pull ahead to wait for your order because of the slow service.then when you ask them to wait as you check your order,they get offended.

Loved this place. Food was very tasty and quick. Lots of choices. I had the garden melt on a whole wheat everything bagel. The surprise was the pickle underneath the wax paper! They have a good selection of coffee. Will definitely go back??

Busters

Reviewed By Paul K - Lincoln, NE

I visited Buster’s at about 6pm on a Wednesday evening. When I entered, only a couple of other tables were occupied (there are high-tops as well as regular-height tables), and I sat at one of the regular-height tables. A waitress approached me fairly quickly and I asked what beers were on tap. She recited the list and asked if I wanted a 16-oz. or a 27-oz. I opted for a 27-oz. Yuengling and it came out in a nice big mug. Having seen Buster’s menu online before I came, I ordered the “fish fry,” which consists of a breaded haddock fillet, fries, and the salad bar. I noticed the salad bar is over $9 by itself, so the fish fry looked like a deal for $14.50. I visited the salad bar (see picture) and it had a nice selection. I opted for both lettuce and spinach and topped it with beets, olives, tomatoes, potato salad, pasta salad, garbanzo beans, sunflower seeds, etc. and both Italian and balsamic vinaigrette dressings. There are also various cheeses and other items I don’t usually eat; I was impressed with the variety on the bar. There’s also a soup of the day, which happened to be beef barley this night. Being pescatarian I didn’t get the soup, and when I got back to my table I found the pasta salad had some chicken in it (I picked it out). Nevertheless, the salad was great, and then the fish came out. A single, large haddock fillet sat atop fries and also came with a small container of an unusual but very tasty version of cole slaw. The haddock was a little overdone – a little too crispy on the ends – but decent. The fries were a little crunchier than I would have liked, too. The bottom line: good food, but I’d try something other than the fish if I visit again; the salad bar alone would be a great choice. The service was very good, but my table turned out to be very wobbly. As I leaned on the table after getting my beer, the beer would easily have spilled had I not caught myself just in time; the restaurant should make sure all its tables are a little more level.

Cafeteria style burritos and bowls. Pick a meat, veggies, eat. The place could do a lot more with decor if they're gonna call themselves Hot Tamale. A bit pricey.

A decent pub in an old house

Reviewed By sukeduke

I always get sucked into this place for work lunches or dinner because canton is sparse on good eats. Every. Single. Time, The experience is awful or a touch less than mediocre. The only good things on this menu are the pre-bought frozen fried fare because those cant be screwed up. Salads are always loaded with romaine or iceberg and not much else, and everytime there is brown, rusty lettuce on the plate. dressings are probably kens. Wraps are never tight and spill food all over. Grilled chicken is almost always rubbery and tastes old. The last time i went, it was noon on a friday and the place was empty. a co-worker couldnt even eat her reuben because it tasted like old rancid grill oil, and this gal is not that fussy when it comes to food. Usually the waitresses are good, its not their fault that the food quality is a mess. I recently got the southwestern cobb salad which promises to be packed with all sorts of good stuff including bacon, cheese, tomatoes, etc. It had about a tablespoon of bacon tomato and taco cheese, and the bacon had clearly been cookd on a different day. There were three huge glops of awful, old guacamole. I paid extra for the grilled chicken addition which was a mistake, since the salad cost me about 12-13 bucks and it was almost all romaine, and left on the plate. Never again.

Very good subs. Much better than Subway, which is pretty gross. Service here is quite good as well. Cannot go wrong when looking for a sub.

They used to have dim sum here that is why I would stop by. No more. The place is small and limited and on this date the food was sitting too long and not very good. We like the fresh take out Chinese place downtown much better.

Josies Little Pizzeria

Reviewed By M H - York, PA

We're vegetarian, so having a place to get a quick salad (excellent service) was nice. The salad was fresh, crisp and tasty after a day on the road. The only (possibly) bad thing was they didn't have single pizza slices available at the time.

We recently visited Meadows twice in a couple of weeks. Both times were great. The food was tops, service pleasant and prompt, and the cost very resonable. We'll be back when we travel in the area again.
