El Portal Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Brett H - Chicago

Now El Porton, the name has changed but the food, menu, and service remain unchanged.

Whether it is for some of the best fajitas or a platter of enchiladas, El Porton will not disappoint. Friendly hometown service couples with excellent food in Glenwood, Iowa. Visitors remember El Porton and make it part of their getaway restaurants when visiting our local wineries or brewery. A small but adequate dinning area serves nonstop chips and homemade salsa while you order authentic food from south of the border. All you can eat taco Tuesday and $2 Margarita Wednesday keeps the restaurant relevant during the weekday lulls. The staff is bilingual so brush up on that Español and order a great meal.

Sisters Cafe

Reviewed By Mary C - Lincoln, Nebraska

My friend and I stopped into Sisters Cafe for a morning coffee and were delighted to be served a delicious cup of fresh coffee along with service that was reminiscent of the way things were many years ago. Classy furnishings, art, fresh table linens, cream in a pitcher, really good coffee, a totally lovely experience. We plan to go back for lunch or dinner, as the menu looked really tempting.

Swine Dining

Reviewed By mynefriend - FREMONT

Quaint downtown setting in Olde Town Bellevue. Don't expect fanciness, it's casual down-home dining ~ Do expect great food, wonderful staff and walking away full & satisfied!!
Each trip I take we hunt out the local BBQ joint. I am fortunate enough to have Swine Dining in my 'back yard". Prices are very reasonable for the feast of food placed in front of you. We've tried each of the meats and all are stellar - plan on some burnt ends and apple cobbler.
If you are visiting, don't skip the opportunity to pick up some of the best & quirkiest BBQ T-shirts around! They truly are award winning, the walls prove it - but the experience and food speak for themselves!

Adriano's Brick Oven

Reviewed By luvchevys21

Poor tasting pizza. Had heard good things about jalapeno poppers but was truly disapppinted. Staff was not friendly. Not a good environment for small kids canned pop and paper plates don't work well. Won't go back. Way to expensive for what you get and ended up leaving quarter of the pizza there because the crust was so burnt it wasn't edible

Oriental Palace

Reviewed By lynnprin - Omaha, Nebraska

We usually carry out as Glenwood is on our way home (farm in country) from Omaha. Family owned and run, we have always been pleased with our takeout. Food prepared while you wait (and can watch if you want to). Nice space for in-house eating as well.

If I am correct and you mean Glenwood Pizza Hut then I have to say it is poor to say the least. Abysmal management! Manager Ladina can be heard cursing while at work. She is rude and short with customers. The pizza is over priced and often tasteless. If u want pizza, do yourself a favor and get Casey's Pizza or BP pizza. Yes! U heard me correctly! I would rather eat gas station pizza.

My order is wrong nearly every single time I go through the drive through. I went just last week as I have been I injured and couldn't cook. When the drive thru lady handed me my order it was missing half of the food. When I pointed that out to her she didn't say sorry, just closed the window and walked away. When she came back she handed me a M&M McFlurry. Which was nice, except i had ordered an Oreo McFlurry. I handed it back to her with my receipt that showed the order lady correctly entered my order. I reminded her about the rest of my order that was missing. She very rudely asked me to move out of the way because she had other people to serve. Like somehow this was all my fault for expecting to get the food I had already paid for. (Silly me!)
Moving forward I thought ... I'm sure that they will forget I'm sitting out here waiting for food. We waited for a bit and finally another young lady came out with the rest of my order and actually said sorry for my wait. I was surprised. And thanked her for bringing out the food and missing drinks.
However, when I got home and handed my son His soda it was only half full. We laughed and said at least we had the food!
I know I was happy I was injured and couldn't return to the store to complain about the attitude I received from the drive thru girl because it would have been embarrassing to end up in hand cuffs over some crappy McDonalds processed food! LOL!!!
