Coeur D Alene, ID
I can't remember when I first discovered Crickets, but once I did, I never stopped going. When friends come into town, we always walk through downtown CDA and go into Crickets to have a lunch and a drink and then continue on our catching up. Crickets has the BEST fries I have ever tasted...and I have tasted a lot of fries in my time. Their prices on drinks aren't too bad either. If you come down on a holiday, or football night you can play along with the interactive games with the other fans. Although they are a little slow when they get backed up, they have comfortable seats and friendly attractive servers, what more can you want?
I have a rare genetic disorder where my body can't break down an amino acid in protein, translating to the inability to eat proteins. It's called phenylketonuria. Going to restaurants has always been a hassle for me and other Italian places state simply that they don't serve what's not on the menu. On Memorial Day, my boyfriend and I went out to Tomato Street and as expected there was nothing on the menu that I could have. After talking to Rachel, our server, we came up with a salad that wasn't even on the menu. She and her coworkers went out of the way to make sure I could eat something there. I really appreciate how they treated me as a friend, and not just another tip. It was a great experience and I will forever recommend this place to anyone who comes into town
