Shorty's Sunflower Cafe

Reviewed By Ron F - Pottstown, Pennsylvania

Firstly, the food is great but don't expect the typical diner menu. The place is small and expect to wait during prime time. The service is great and fast. The have great specials but again not your ordinary eggs and such. Nothing crazy but recommend you check their menu on line before going so you know what to expect.

My wife received a recommendation for us to try this restaurant. She brought me here as a surprise.

We lived in Paris and love French food. While there, we made many friends who welcomed us into their homes. This gave us an experience that many others have not had.

When we arrived at La Maison and stepped inside, I felt transported back to France. The house is decorated very much like the homes of my friends in France.

We sat at a table for two. There are other tables that seat more people. The dining room was cozy and not very large. You must make reservations.

The owners came by personally to describe the menu and to speak with us throughout the evening. The food was authentic. It is a BYOB restaurant that only accepts cash.

I am thrilled to have another authentic French restaurant so close to home.

Reviewed By CLSkit - Pottstown, Pennsylvania

Imagine being invited into a friend's home for fresh, healthy, lovingly prepared food and conversation. That is iCreate! They also are so accommodating if you need a quick take out order. I recently needed a triple sized order of their amazing stuffed grape leaves (with the most delicious dipping sauce) and I needed to pick it up in less than an hour. They were ready and the hit of the party.

Lily's Grill

Reviewed By NKP42112 - Denver, Colorado

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening and really enjoyed our time! We didn't realize it is BYOB. We will know for next time. The place was clean, food was very good, and service was attentive. You need reservations on Friday and Saturday nights. If you have a love and appreciation for Rescued Dogs, you'll appreciate the clean and very sweet decor. It is on the spendy side, but you won't be disappointed. We had gyro spring rolls with tzatziki sauce as an app. Entrees were butternut squash ravioli with a cream sauce which was yummy! My husband had fried oysters with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus which he loved. For dessert we had key lime parfait and lemon blueberry parfait. Everything was excellent!! We would absolutely go there again, but more for a special occasion.

Grumpy's Sandwiches

Reviewed By vettewomanpa - Pottstown, Pennsylvania

I have eaten at Grumpy's many times and decided to use them to cater a picnic in honor of my brother visiting. I ordered hot roast beef sandwiches and pork BBQ with potato salad and a pickle tray on the side for 35 people. He ended up giving me food for at least 40+! All the food was delicious and everyone wanted to know where it came from. The BBQ was a particular favorite with the crowd. They gave us enough food so that I was sending platters home with people and still froze some of the BBQ. I would use him again for a party.

Reviewed By Janice08251950 - Pottstown, Pennsylvania

The food was delicious, the portions were ample, unfortunately the waitress was uninterested. Sorry to say that her lack of interest in taking our order and delivering it in a timely manner was the one thing that left a bad taste in our mouths. Overall the lunch selection was very good.

los aztecas

Reviewed By Stacy R

I recently went to Loz Aztecas with a friend for dinner before we went to see a movie. The food was delicious, and the service was friendly and timely. It struck me that the servers called us amigos. I think any place that calls you friends and feeds you well should be celebrated. The food was very good an authentic. So, if you are familiar with a chain that has tex mex, please try something more traditional, hopefully you will come to love what anyone who's been to Los Aztecas already knows. Good food can be delicious, prepared quickly, come at a reasonable cost, and be served to you by friends. Enjoy, friends!

Opa Vera's

Reviewed By imreadyletsgo52 - Royersford, Pennsylvania

We went for lunch, 3 of us, we ordered the gyro platters and vegetable platter, all were fresh, large and very good, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and very clean. The cook even thanked us for coming and we said we would be back. Food was very good, we also shared a baklava sundae, delicious! Definitely a keeper, they have all sorts of sandwiches and meals and platters, worth the trip.
