Duke's quick service and friendly atmosphere only add to the incredibly tasty food. The regulars are always good for a friendly chat and there is always something good on the tube. My wife and I can split Duke's signature burger, "The Whole Ball of Wax" which comes with deliciously hot fries. The ingredients are fresh and plentiful. We like to top it off with one of Duke's many perfectly priced pictures of beer (we go for the Anchor Steam). Duke's is our go to date night destination.
Ventura Time is located in the Ventura Mall and has a great selection of watches and time pieces. I went in to have the band on my watch repaired and they were gracious enough to find an old part for me and fix it within 5 minutes at no cost to me. That small gesture has made me a customer for life and I have returned to buy batteries and plan on returning when I need to replace my watch.
Dave's Plumbing is a great place to stop if you need to pick up a part or two for your plumbing project, but not the place you want to go to buy it all. The prices are higher than you'd pay in a big box store but it's well worth the time if you just need a couple of small things.
Reids Appliances is a very competitive store with the biggest selection of appliances in town. Whether you are looking for a high end appliance or a rental unit special, this is a great place to start your search.
Sur La Table is a cook's dream store. They carry all the latest gadgets and high quality kitchen items. I bought my wife her birthday present from here last year and she absolutely loved it.
Presto Pasta has the best chicken, shrimp and lasangna for the most reasonable prices in town. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table on real plates with real utensils and freshly grated parmasan cheese. It's making my mouth water just thinking about it.
I used to take my car to the dealership for oil changes until I was told about oil stop. You drive in and out really fast and the basic oil change is consistently much cheaper than going to a dealership. The workers are not on commission, but they offer you other products or services and back it up by showing you why you might consider the extra services. The many questions can become tedious, but I think it's well worth it to keep your car running smoothly.
Dr. White is a great pediatrician, but his oxnard office is always overwhelmed with patients. I would recommend making your appointment for the Ventura office where they always seem to have a much lighter patient load.
After switching insurance, I was a little worried about going to a new dentist but Dr. Bowers proved himself to be very competent and easygoing. I highly recommend Dr. Bowers to anyone looking for a new dentist.
Ojai Ice Cream has amazing ice cream made right there in the store. My wife brought me there for the first time a few years ago and now it's a must stop everytime we visit Ojai.
