We just sneaked in before closing after attending a Veteran's Day parade. We had brunch and the food was very good. The raisin french toast is a must try. The homemade banana bread was awesome. Service was friendly and prompt despite the restaurant being very busy. We eat there again if in Auburn.

Took my daughters here for dinner. The service was very good. The food was very good and the portions weren't to big. They also make a great jalapeño margarita.

Oddfellas

Reviewed By ChrisLaura N - Portland, Oregon

I visited Oddfellas twice this week while in town on business (a lunch and dinner), so the experience was enough for repeat business. Fairly standard pub menu but done well, attentive service and a spacious dining area that didn't feel too crowded or too noisy.

Las Margaritas

Reviewed By Panamaannie - Puerto Lindo, Panama

I had the chicken with creamy mushrooms, delicious but the tortillas were out of a bag. not home made. Also the Original margarita was quite good, but should be for$11. The chicken dish with rice and beans was$16. The service was excellent but the prices will send me looking for a different restaurant when I crave Mexican food again.

Longhorn Barbecue Catering

Reviewed By Miss M

Great BBQ! I'm usually disappointed in Pacific NW bbq, and this place is not disappointing. They do not boil their ribs, you can tell because the fat isn't boiled off. Yes boiling makes meat a bit more moist, but takes away all the good flavor. The chicken is very good as well. Husband had the Big 'Un sandwich and was very pleased. Get the sauce on the side so you can add as little or much as you like. I enjoyed both sauces mixed together for sweet and spicey! Corn bread muffins were ok, more cake than cornmeal. Lots of seating and parking. I will be back!

Athens Pizza & Pasta

Reviewed By Rehsinup19 - Kent, Washington

My wife and I came here for dinner and had a great meal. This is an amazing place for traditional Italian food with some interesting twists. The spaghetti and bbq chicken dish was tender with great flavor. The baked lasagna with meatballs was also delicious. The service was prompt and friendly.

Hibachi Buffet

Reviewed By Cathy R - Seattle, Washington

Stopped for lunch - great menu selection. Once more people arrived, food trays were quickly refilled. In addition to many chicken, fish, vegetable, sushi items, also a great assortment of fruits. Be sure to save room for dessert - hard scoop ice cream! You have to ask for Senior Rate (65 & older); beverages were very reasonable (89 cents!) and refillable.

Hop Jack's Lakeland Hills

Reviewed By Jim A - Ukiah, California, United States

Hop Jack's is a sports bar where the whole family can feel comfortable. The servers were attentive, helpful, and fun. They have a great selection of cold beer and cocktails, and comfort food. I highly recommend the spicy chicken grilled cheese sandwich with spicy tater tots on the side (hey ... why not?). If you're feeling more conventional, there's a good selection of salads and other meals.

Sushido

Reviewed By Panamaannie - Puerto Lindo, Panama

We tried a variety of rolls, all were great. The teriyaki salmon dinner came with Miso soup, a large salad, rice and choice of 2 sushi rolls for only $15.95. The house hot saki was especially good.

Gor Gai Thai Street Food

Reviewed By scrappinbug - Lakewood, WA

If you going to this restaurant assuming you're going to get peanut sauce and pad Thai, now's the time to change your thinking!
Everything here is authentic made by hand in the store, expect at least 15 or 20 minutes of your food to arrive at table to eat in. Amazing little street food and other Thai options other than your run-of-the-mill peanut sauce over pad Thai noodles
