Tofte's Table

Reviewed By lisaarazz - Lockport, Illinois

Amazingly great restaurant. Food and service was outstanding. We started with the duck confit tostadas and octopus dishes. Both were elegantly plated with layer upon layer of flavor. Next we had the shrimp and the scallop dishes. The textures and colorful plating made each a work of art and tasted wonderful. The serving staff was informative and very friendly. We will definitely be back.

Took a business party of eight on a Wednesday night. It was very busy and loud. Hard to hear someone across the table. I had cream of broccoli soup which was very good. Enter was chicken jambalaya which was good spicy and very salty. Entree of the day was steak parmigiana which several of my guests enjoyed. Salads were good. My party seemed pleased with their dinners, except me. Service was excellent, our wait staff worked hard to pull it off for us. I think it is an average experience. Do not go here for a "quiet dinner", as there was some type of loud dinner meeting going on next to us. Did not try desert.

Pat's Rib Place

Reviewed By Jerry L - Burlington, United States

Walked up to the counter and ordered 2 brisket sandwiches, a small Mac and Cheese Bites, a small Fried Okra, one Sprecher's Root Beer and a cup of water. Our bill with tax came to $24 and change. Food was prepared quickly and brought to our table piping hot. There were 5 choices of BBQ sauce (Pat's House Sauce - mild, Brown Brown Sauce - sweet, Memphis Mad Dawg Sauce - hot, Alisha's Special Sauce - sweet & hot, and Apple Chunky Sauce - sweet & tangy). More than enough delicious food for 2 people to enjoy, but I still had to go back and order the peach cobbler a la mode ($4.05 with tax). Warm peach cobbler with vanill ice cream on top - what a way to end a meal! We'll DEFINITELY be back.... just don't mention it to our doctor!

I have been to this Deli many times with friends and family. We all love it. The Raspberry Chicken salad is really great and the Grilled Reuben Sandwich is to die for. They also have a great Turkey Cheddar Panini that has their own cranberry relish on it which is super good. I really can't say enough about this place. Love the atmosphere too. They serve dinner here as well, I just haven't been there for dinner yet.

Texas Roadhouse

Legendary Food, Legendary Service

Reviewed By Richard K - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

When you first enter Texas Roadhouse, they have a beautiful display of steaks in their cooler, which look quite appealing. However, after having ordered the 10 oz. Ft. Worth Ribeye, although cooked perfectly to medium rare as requested, I was dismayed that it isn't up to traditional steakhouse standards. The steak had a mealy texture and was without flavor. My wife, on the otherhand, was extremely pleased with her choice of chicken fried steak, with gravy and mashed potatoes, although she believed the mashed potatoes were of the box variety and not home made. Based on this experience, I suggest that you stick with the comfort meal choices, and they have plenty of them, from pork chops to ribs. It is a big menu, with something to be found for everyone. The atmosphere is fun, with a bucket of peanuts greeting you at your table, and an extremely well trained and friendly waitstaff. Our server, Victoria, was exceptional. The dinner was still enjoyable, despite it's flaws and it is a good place for couples or families, with dishes priced very reasonably, that won't break your wallet.

We went to La Estacion for dinner due to the recommendations of many local people. The restaurant is absolutely great to look around in. The train cars, the large clock, and the huge station doors were fascinating.

Fuzzy's Pub & Grill

Reviewed By Jannaqq - milwaukee, wisconsin

Went to Fuzzy's on a whim when a colleague knowledgeable of the Waukesha area suggested it for lunch. My first visit. Hightop for four available when we walked in. Quick and attentive service. Very generous serving of their walleye fish fry cooked perfectly--four palm-sized filets. Seems like breakfast is served all day--friend's country skillet looked delicious. Nearby table's burger and taco salad looked tempting enough to consider returning. Dedicated parking lot, sign looks is nicer than the outside but just as nice inside.

Taco Amigo

Reviewed By wintermom9597 - Madison, Wisconsin

I have been visiting Taco Amigo for quite a few years, as it is close to my parents' house. I have never been disappointed. The food is delicious, served hot and the staff is always friendly and quick. It is a small restaurant, tucked into a strip mall with very little visibility from the street. But once you find it, be sure to stop in. The menu includes salads (including cactus), several quesadilla and nacho options, combination plates that you "build" yourself with either 2 or 3 items plus sides, enchiladas, burritos, specialty dinners (some very authentic), seafood (even a Friday fish fry) and breakfast served all day.
