I have to admit that the calzones at Luca's are fantastic. The pizza is great too, but for the price, the calzone is a meal and half and is done very well.
Sorry... maybe I'm in the minority here, but Birds used to be better. It's still good, but it seems like it's missing a sense of adventure in its foods, unlike when it first began. What started off as something different has become a little too commercial.
If you like milkshakes, you should try Rosewood Dairy Bar. You will not be disappointed. Yeah, there's other food too, which is good for dairy bar standards. But, the milkshakes rock!
Don't be surprised if you see long lines at this deli. Rest assured, the lines move fast! And the food is fresh and good. I'm a big fan of their egg salad sandwich. I hear the soups are great as well.
Raising High started baking bread and did a great job at it! They expanded into the lunch business and, in my view, never did anything unique. There's a lot of potential there, but not enough follow through in the selection and quality of their lunch menu. Bread is still good, though.
I guess you can't blame the bookstore, but man they're pricey. As a college student, I don't really care about atmosphere too much... I just want cheaper prices!
Sorry, I hate giving harsh reviews (3 stars isn't bad), but these guys are pricey for the quality of work. I've taken too many vehicles here and have not been impressed, at least relative to other mechanics.
For anybody that knew the old Rockaways, you may be disappointed. However, the new Rockaways (which actually isn't that new anymore) is very nice and serves up the same great food and cold beer. A must for any beer aficionado in Columbia.
I know, it's hard to fry anything badly, but their fried grouper sandwich is top notch. Went there the other night and learned that they serve good beer too. Definitely a good place to eat and drink.
Za's has great food and some of the best pizza around. Don't know if any others bake pizza in a brick oven, but these guys do and it DOES make a difference. They've got lots of other items on the menu as well that are worth a taste.
