Service lacked luster and the price of my oil change quickly hiked from $30 to $65, with the add-ons.
I can't be sure either, but my car seems to CHUG more gas now, than before I went there for my oil change. It's supposed to be the other way around for Christ's sake! What's the deal with that? Eh?
Always packed especially on weekends, this place consistently serves the best Bangus Belly (aka fish bbq'd over charcoal) in the Bay Area.
You know when you find that one restaurant in Chinatown that has actual Chinese clientele? You sit down because they have to know what they're doing right? I mean, not just tourists are there.
Well, this is the comparable thing with Filipino food. Go there any given night and the clients are 75% Filipinos, with smiles on their faces. They're doing something right when they've consistently been #1 for many years now.
Ok, they have one of the largest or maybe the largest selection of roses in the Bay Area. What bites though is that the roses I bought already had black spot. A little something I only noticed after unfurling the mass tangling of climbing roses I bought from this place. You see, each one comes in this bundle, wound together. There's no way for me to see this when I was at the nursery.
Moreover, we were sold Sterling Silver roses by the nursery person, after we told her we were absolute beginners with roses and needed all the help and advice we could get. After researching on the Internet, I found that this variety has a notoriously picky track record and that most nurseries are actually staying away from selling these because of the bad track record. How disappointing that our salesperson decided not to tell us about this!
We bought $850 worth of plants from this place, as we're very disappointed at the lack of decent service. I called the day after asking about tips on how to get started pruning my espaliered trees and all the salesperson could tell me is that it's very hard to explain over the phone. I should just come over and buy a book. Since I live in San Francisco and they're in Fremont, this is easier said than done. I wasn't looking to become a pruning expert over the phone, just some basics.
I called Roger Reynolds Nursery in Menlo Park and this place took their time explaining the basics to me. Considering I didn't even buy my tree from them, (it's a huge shame I didn't) they've been great.
Stay away from Regan's, I feel CHEATED!
I bought a huge tree from this place, and it was priced at half the amount I saw a comparable tree in Berkeley. What a surprise considering they have a more upscale location and clientele.
I also bought a climbing rose bushes from there and they're looking absolutely gorgeous!
Regretably, I discovered this place after I bought the bulk of my plants from another Regan's Nursery in Hayward, which completely bites!
Next time, I'm going to Roger Reynolds only.
