I have been going to OB Gyn Associates for 10 years. I started going before the birth of my first child. The doctors and nurses are very caring and are an excellent choice when needing to find a new gynecologist or obstretrician. The staff is very professional. Ob Gyn Associates has a lab on site plus they also do mammograms.
We have lived on the SW side of Cedar Rapids for 10 years and have been to Perkins many times. Perkins always has great service and the food is excellent. We have family that live out of state and when they come to visit us they always want to go to Perkins for breakfast. They also have great lunches and dinners. Perkins has a kids menu and they always give crayons and a place mat for the kids to keep them entertained. We have ate at Perkins many times over the years for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.
My youngest daughter started attending Grant when she was in preschool. She is in the ECSE (Early Childhood Special Education) program and is now in AK (Alternative Kindergarten). Even though Grant is not our home school, I am so thankful for the ECSE program and the education she has received at Grant. The educators are wonderful caring people and the principal knows all the students by name. Grant is a small school and the grades only go up to the 1st grade. Grant is a great school whether your child is in general education or early childhood special education.
We started going to El Rancho when they first opened which was before they moved in the location next to K-Mart. We always get fast service and the food is authentic. El Rancho has the best salsa and the best Mexican food I have tasted. My family of 4 can eat for under $25 and we always have leftovers to take home. The fajitas are the best and are large enough to share. If you want to try authentic Mexican food at a great price, then you have to try El Rancho!
I used to go to JCPenney's to get my hair done and I liked my hairstyles but then she left and I tried another stylist but she was more expensive and didn't do a very good job. I tried Fantastic Sams and saw my hairstylist there. I found out that several of the stylists that worked at JCPenney's left to go to Fantastic Sams. I now have a different hairstylist at Fantastic Sams (who just happened to also work at JCPenney) and I have been very happy. Fantastic Sams's always has coupons in the Penny Saver and through coupon books that are mailed to residents of Cedar Rapids. You can always get a haircut for under $10 with coupons. They also have a punch card and after the 10th haircut you get your next haircut free. I'm very happy getting my haircut at Fantastic Sams. It's like almost every place I get my hair cut. Some stylists cut better than others and once I find a stylist that can cut my hair the way I like it then I stick with that stylist.
