HomeSpun Yogurt

Reviewed By Michael V A - Lincoln, California, United States

Among all the frozen yogurt stores that have proliferated in the last few years, this one stands out. Quality yogurt, innumerable toppings, all the good stuff is there. But what really makes this place a standout is the owner, who seemingly is always on site, with his infectious enthusiasm and energy. We're regulars and we recommend this place highly.

We had a private dining room for my wife’s work party.
The service was spectacular.The beverage glasses were never empty whether it was water or your favorite cocktail.
The bacon wrapped shrimp,amazing.I recommend the filet Mignon,asparagus,mushrooms,and mashed potatoes.I think everything served here probably is very good.
This is a great choice for a nice,romantic dinner or just about any occasion.

Siino's Pizza-Pasta-Grill

Reviewed By Alaskanlarry - Minneapolis

This is one of our friends favorite lunch spots so when visiting, we wanted to treat them. Service was fine, nice people run this place for sure. The portions were huge, and some of the food ordered was good, just not great. Shrimp dish was good, lots to eat. The Blue Cheese hamburger likewise. The low point was the Gorgonzola chicken pasta. The Gorgy must have been walked by the dish, it was barely evident. As for the creamy as advertised dish, it was watery and a splashy thing to eat. Chicken was way over cooked.
I guess I drew the short straw on this meal, the rating may be overstated to the downside, but hey, Im the guy writing the review and I got the bad plate. So it goes........

Dined here multiple times. Excellent value on their lunch menu. You get large portions and the food is good. Dinner menu is good too and affordable. The restaurant can get crowded on special occasions, but on most nights the ambiance is just fine.

OTP as it's known to the locals, is a wonderfully delicious, small town, pizza joint. Their pizza is GOOD and they do not skimp on the toppings. They have great salad, plenty of beer and friendly staff.
My only complaint would be that the place is small and since they're so good, they're always really busy, which is always a good problem to have.

Thunder Cafe

Reviewed By AHIDAD - Granite Bay, California

We've been here many times before, and the food has always been at least pretty good and sometimes excellent. The service has, at times been good, but our last few visits we've experienced lackluster service. On our visit last week, our server did not appear for the first 15 minutes that we sat in the booth. Only after asking the hostess to send the server over, did we see her. She took our order without a smile or comment. The food was brought out by someone else, who had no idea who had ordered which meals. Usually, at this place they are pretty good about keeping water glasses filled and even refreshing soft drinks. Not so on this visit. The waitress did notice our completely empty water glasses and sodas when she brought the check, long after we had finished eating. I think we'll give this place a rest for now.

Zakuro

Reviewed By Palmer R

They are clearly underrated at 10. The food was really excellent. We shared three sushi rolls: Hwy 65, King Kong (1) and ahi cucumber avocado roll. Hwy 65 was actually spicy tuna, but excellent. The King Kong was over sized with large pieces of ahi. It had an orange mayo type sauce that they flamed at the bar. Exceptional. The ahi, cucumber and avocado was special ordered and fresh and tasty. A really great experience. There is no better sushi in the area. Very friendly service. Superb.
