I didn't expect portions to be large with the "Just the Right Size" menu items. I did however expect shrimp to be larger than a quarter. With the Surf & Turf you get 4 shrimp grilled on a skewer, and a very small (but adequate) flat steak and small but tasty balsamic vinagar salad. The shrimp were dry because they were so tiny --- these are not meant to be skewered and grilled at this small size. These are salad size shrimp. I would suggest 3 larger shrimp. Just so disappointing because I liked the meal so much but would never order again for that reason. Spires Restaurant gives you 2 skewers with 8 gigantic juicy shrimp (not dry) for $9.99. I would recommend Spires if you are looking for grilled skewered shrimp at a great price.

Pros: Taste was so good I yearned for more

Cons: Portion size of shrimp - TINY TINY

This is a friendly restaurant. The wait time was a little annoying but it was on a Saturday so maybe that was to be expected. We had a salad which was good, although a little processed. The service was good and the food was pretty reasonably priced I thought.

We go to Mimi;s for breakfast you get juice and eggs for under 6.00 and muffin can beat that. The staff is friendly and we only had to wait less then 20 mins.

although having a cheese eating surrender monkey theme Mimi's service is reliable and high quality. Their pumpkin muffins are second to none. An excellent dessert menu awaits you until 11pm -- don't miss the chocolate chip pecan pie. Cuisine is anything but typical ranging from the thai chicken wrap to good old fashioned chicken p0t pie.

This restaurant chain seems to be the same at multiple locations. It's American cuisine such as burgers, meatloaf, salads, and pasta. Two people can eat around $25 to $50 depending on what you order.

PROS: Good food
CONS: Price is OK
