BMW cars practically sell themselves. Maybe the sales people here realize that, but that doesn't mean this dealership should hire a bunch of unprofessional clowns who take that to heart. It's still a business and buyers will try to negotiate. Imagine that, huh? Don't be infantile and clap your hands and taunt prospective buyers when they walk out of your store because you couldn't agree on a price (especially when conditions change and you are missing your monthly quota and you would otherwise accept the offer). I took my $50k **the very same day** and got a better car at Weatherford BMW.
Avoid this dealership if you're in the market for a BMW. There are plenty of other dealerships in the Bay Area who understand how to sell cars and recognize that buyers also know how dealerships sell. It's tough to believe that the sales people at BMW of San Francisco don't get it that their connection to BMWs and the BMW lifestyle is limited to the crappy jobs they have! Any disrespect is bad, but worse when you can only back it up from your used Taurus.
Yes the imagery of pain is true. And nobody looks forward to it. But if you want to keep from looking like a banged up hockey player, then have Dr. Carr take care of your teeth.
Dr. Carr and his staff are great. They personalize it. I remember the first time I was in, they took the extra effort to get to know me, even getting a Polaroid of me for their files! I swear, they take notes of everything they pick up about you during your conversations with the staff. Every time I go in, I'm amazed that they remember exactly how old my son is, and even his name!
Of course, it's about the teeth. But with Dr. Carr, it is about complete dental hygiene - even the gums. Does your dentist track your gum recession? This is just an example of how much care this practice takes in your dental hygiene. They go above and beyond, with a smile.
Convenient location on Main street in downtown Los Altos. They accept your packages and get it to where you want it to go. Just as you would expect. Now what can brown do for you?
My friends and I love this place. On one side you have shabu shabu. On the other you have teppanyaki. I've only done the shabu shabu so far, but you can't beat the variety and freshness of the ingredients you put in the soup (either plain or spicy, and the pots are divided so you can have both.) You cook the thin slices of beef, chicken, pork, and a wide assortment of seafood and veggies, yourself in the soup, and then dip in the sauce you mix yourself (soy sauce, sesame seed oil, green onions, and what I recommend - raw egg). It's healthy, tasty and filling!
Be ready to wait if you go during the peak hours. This place is always packed. And don't forget that parking is a nightmare in this Chinese strip mall, so if you don't want to exacerbate your reputation for being on "Asian time", account for 10-15 minutes just to find parking.
This is a quaint little place so easy just to drive right by on San Antonia Road. My wife and I drove by it for years! But it's worth finding and eating there to discover what good Japanese home cooking is. Service was great.
The service is great at this little hole in the wall. It's not the cleanest place, but the Chinese food is quite authentic. It's never full so there is lots of room for the kids to run around, and there is plenty of parking.
I've never used it, but the one peculiarity about this place is that the restrooms seem to be located outside...
The service is lightning quick. The prices can't be beat. And if you're hungry, then the food contains the nutrients your body needs. Don't expect anything authentic but do expect it to taste good. MSG is the name of the game here.
Known for their healthy foods, the Japanese even make eating fat laden beef healthy (and very tasty) with shabu shabu, or beef fondue. Shabuway makes it affordable, with "Kobe-style beef", not "Kobe beef". (You'd know the difference when you got the bill, if couldn't tell while eating!) You can eat either at a table or at the bar. The bar is great if there is a game you want to watch on one of several TVs they have mounted on the walls facing the bar.
I love Shabuway as it adds to the variety of Japanese foods close by. They fulfill my shabu shabu fix on those nights I don't feel like eating sushi or kushiyaki.
For me what sets the great bubble tea places apart from the good ones is the use of fresh ingredients. Verde Tea uses the powders, instead of blending with say, real taro. But this place is hip and a perfect place to stop off for a bubble tea after eating lunch in Mountain View.
The layout isn't perfect though, with the counter right by the entrance, and probably a few too many tables crammed into such a small space.
This is a great little place that is always packed. And here's a tip. If you're looking for authentic Chinese cuisine, look for a place that is filled with the older generation of Chinese. If they give the thumbs up, you better believe it is good. Noodle soups come out piping hot.
There is convenient parking in the lot right behind the restaurant. Only qualm is that they run a bar behind the restaurant and since it's impossible to smoke anywhere in public, a favorite place for the smokers is in the breezeway between the parking lot and the restaurant. You get your share of second hand smoke on your way to the restaurant, but that can be avoided by avoiding the breezeway and using the front entrance off Castro.
