My kids absolutely love going to Merricks! And I don't mind taking them from time to time, because they are very inexpensive and the food is good. Very nice servers, fast drink refills, and the food comes quickly. Lots of choices on the kids menu!! Last time I took my 4 kids there, it only cost around $20 for the 5 of us to eat....very reasonable!
We visited La Casa Nueva after it was recommended to us by several people. Being from California and of hispanic descent, we are always on the lookout for true, authentic Mexican food. This is NOT IT! The food was bland, rice and beans were tasteless, and the "gravy" that everyone raved about was nothing more than enchilada sauce warmed up in a dish. WAY too much yellow cheese. If you like Tex-Mex food (as served in central/southern Texas) then you will probably like this, but if you're looking for true authentic Mexican you'll be disappointed. We had my mom with us when we ate here, she was visiting from CA and she just picked at her food and left most of it there. A disappointment for sure. It was expensive too.
The food AND the service at Tempura is great. The lunch prices are reasonable (dinner is a little pricey!) and the portions are large--you get soup and salad with your meal, so there is no shortage of food! I love the Bento Box for variety and the Green Tea ice cream is to die for!!
I took my son to eat here on his birthday at his request...a friend of his had told him that the food was great. We thought it was just okay. My son had a burger and I had an omelet, and neither one was remarkable. The server was nice, but in a way that seemed more hokey than natural. Atmosphere was unappealing. We did get drink refills quickly though. Prices were for the most part "okay" but I honestly thought it was a little expensive for what it was. We're not in any hurry to go back.
The Mongolian grill is great....better than many others I have tried both in and out of state. That being said, the other hot foods are just so-so. To me, they all have a "sugary" taste that makes them all taste the same...and authentic Chinese food should not taste sugary. I do like the sushi and salad bar, as well as the fruits and desserts. My husband and I have lunch here fairly often since it's close to his work--the Mongolian grill alone is worth the lunch price.
The food at the Canteen Grille is fantastic, which is the only reason we have gone back so many times. Unfortunately, every time we have been there, the service has been exceedingly slow and the servers have acted like they don't really want to be working. Drink refills took FOREVER in coming. The food is really their only saving grace in my opinion--every meal I've had has been excellent. The Wednesday prime rib special is a great deal. Atmosphere is nice. If you have plenty of time to wait for service and you don't mind not getting refills or your food for about a half an hour, go ahead and try them out.
We had always wondered about this place because we never saw anyone going there, so one day we felt adventurous and decided to check it out. I'm glad we did because the food was great. The soup was very good, egg rolls were delicious, and the curry chicken that I had was quite good and the portion was VERY large! Very attentive and gracious service. Prices are amazingly cheap. A good lunch experience!
We went here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend...and it was absolutely fantastic. The food is very authentic and very old-school--the meat in their tacos tastes just like the meat my grandma used to make years ago. Service is fast, friendly, and flawless. Even when the place is jam-packed, you get your refills and food quickly, they are spot-on! Excellent.
After eating at San Pedro's in Kearney, we were overjoyed to see that they were opening one in North Platte. This one does not disappoint. I grew up in California, surrounded by hispanic family members and friends--and when we moved to Nebraska we found authentic Mexican food to be truly lacking here. The food at San Pedro made me feel like we were back at home. Their chile rellenos are the best I have ever had!! Fast, attentive service. Great lunch prices! Highly recommend!
I regularly take my car to Grease Monkey for service. Comprehensive service, good prices, and the management and staff is fantastic. Growing up with a mechanic father, I was taught to be wary of these lube shops, but the Krulls are absolutely honest and I am happy to support the business. I love how they clean and vacuum your car for you too!
