I love this place! Every time we come in here the customer service is second to none. We are new to raising chickens, so often have no idea what we're looking for, and have been given tips several times on the best products to buy and what the most affordable options are. Also, we appreciate their measures taken for safety during the pandemic. We will definitely keep coming back!
This place is SO good. We've ordered take-out from here a few times during the pandemic and everything has always been top notch and thoughtfully packaged.
It is difficult to find low-carb options from restaurants, but their cauliflower rice is DELICIOUS and so full of flavor! It's perfectly crumbly and not soggy at all. I have gotten the keto bowl and protein bowl with butter chicken and tikka masala, and both were very flavorful and tasty. Plus, these bowls both come with a generous side salad that goes above the norm with avocado, grapefruit, sliced almonds, pico, and cheese. I order a side of yoghurt to mix with the dressing and it's divine.
This place quickly became one of our quarantine staples and is one of my favorites!
Ordered the El Jefe burrito and was very disappointed. This is their version of a super burrito that comes with everything, but for some reason mine was served without the sour cream or guacamole.
The chicken was full of gristle and my burrito was 90% canned refried beans with zero flavor. The two salsas available at the salsa bar were very watery and meh. I won't be coming back.
While my neighborhood is a bit sketch, I am thankful to live so close to this hidden gem of all gems.
Oh, Uptown, let me count the ways I love you..
- ?BEST eggs benedict you will ever eat IN YOUR LIFE! And they have a large, unique, ever-changing variety - for example, the crab cake benedict with pesto hollandaise, SWORDFISH benedict, a few vegetarian selections, corned beef hash benedict, and the biscuits & gravy benedict, just to name a few. I personally had never liked benedict because of the hollandaise sauce, but after eating here, I learned that I had just never had GOOD hollandaise.
- The breakfast burrito is my personal fav. It is MASSIVE and comes with potato, egg, cheese, sausage & bacon, but I always subsitute the meat on mine with avocado and it is soooo bomb. They serve it with sides of sour cream & their own killer home made salsa.
- The mimosas are very generous and are made with fresh squeezed orange juice and plenty of champagne! These are my one and only hangover cure after a long weekend out.
- The layout of the restaurant is so unique! There is traditional indoor booth-style seating, an outdoor patio in the back with a small koi pond, lots of foliage, and original artwork, and then there is an open in-between seating area for smokers that has booth seating like the inside area, with two walls, that you walk between to get to the back patio.
Find them on Facebook, they update their specials almost daily. If you're a breakfast lover like me, check them out sometime - you won't be dissapointed!
I work a few blocks from the Downtown Plaza, and I visit this Macy's location on the reg. I've always had friendly, enjoyable interactions with the sales staff... until today, that is.
Today was their "Biggest One Day Sale", and I'd been eyeballing a pair of Kenneth Cole earrings to get my sis for Xmas for the last few weeks, and was hoping to get a deal on them today. Alas, they weren't on sale, but I ended up getting them anyway, as they were the last pair and I might not get another opportunity.
The lines were incredibly long, which I had expected with the sale and all, but after about 10 minutes, I was the proud temporary owner of a fabulous pair of designer earrings. The cashier was pleasant, and packed them away in a fancy little Macy's jewelry gift box. After my transaction was through, I realized that I had not received such a gift box for the pair of earrings I had purchased the day before (like I said, ?I shop here a lot).
I went back to the jewelry counter with the shortest line (one old lady purchasing a silver chain), and began to wait. This cashier was chatting up a storm with this lady, and I doubt she even had any idea that I was there, because she didn't so much as glance at me once. I must have stood there for 20 minutes before another employee finally walked up and asked me if I needed help.
Wow, someone actually aknowledging my existence! I told her my situation, and asked for the gift box for the earrings I had bought the day before, and suddenly her face changed from being eagerly excited about making a sale to being extremely annoyed. She rudely told me that she would need to see the earrings first. I had them with me in my bag, so I pulled them out to show her. She literally laughed out loud when she saw them.
Then she condescendingly went on to explain that "Fine Jewelry" gift boxes can not be used for "Fashion Jewelry" purchases, and that she could not give me a small carboard box that says "Macy's" on it for that reason. Seriously? It's a f***ing BOX! I waited in line almost half an hour for it! Do you seriously expect me to believe that you have to match the number of boxes per exact amount of pieces of fine jewelry that you sell?
Maybe I would have taken it a little better if she had articulated it in a different way, but she was downright snooty and rude about it, and at this point I was livid. At first I had decided I would never shop here again, but then I got a better idea; After work I am going back over there to get that damn gift box. When asked to show the piece of jewelry I would like the box for, I'll to show the fancy-yancy Kenneth Cole earrings, and voila. Customer satisfaction. That's what Department stores like Macy's are supposed to strive for, right?
I just want to start off by saying, I LOVE The Sandwich Spot.. The first reason being that their spicy bomb sauce is to die for.. secondly, their breads are always so soft and fresh (my fav is the dutch crunch.. mmm!)
Now, in regards to THIS location... there is definitely room for improvement. I'm still sticking with 4 stars because they just opened about a month ago, and I understand that they're still working out some of the kinks, BUUUUTT....
When I walked in, I was in line behind a gentleman who was ordering two sandwiches. One for himself, and one for someone on the phone who had simply told him they wanted "turkey & cheddar". When he repeated this to the sandwich maker, she seemed utterly dumbfounded. She began to frantically list all the specialty sandwiches on the menu that contained these two ingredients, and the man stopped her saying "I don't care what you put on it.. you're the expert, just make it however you think it should be made." This seemed to confuse her even more. She then asked "Well.. what kind of bread?" Again, the man said he did not have a preference, and that if the person on the phone didn't end up liking her knowledgable sandwich making decisions, it would be their own fault for not being more specific.
This went on with just about every ingredient she put on the sandwich, and I could tell the man was getting quite annoyed. I didn't mind the extra wait, but jeez... you work in a sandwich shop, can't you just whip up a generic sandwich with only the basics that you figure every customer can agree with?
Ok, now onto MY sandwich experience.. I wanted to experiment a little this time and try a hot tuna with cream cheese & avocado (that might sound gross to you, but like I said, it was meant to be an experiment!). When I asked for the cream cheese, the girl seemed a little confused (I get it, it's a weird combo) ?then she hesitated and went on to tell me that she would usually put the cream cheese on BEFORE the tuna, which she had already put on the bread.. and for some reason it would be too difficult for her to put it on the other side of the bread..?
......Ummm.. ok... As I tried to understand this explanation, I just decided to forget it and stick with something that would be "easier" for her, so I told her to just put cheddar instead. At this point I forgot all about the avocado, damn! Experimental sandwich fail. I told her that I wanted everything (mayo, mustard, secret sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion, peppers, and pickles) BUT the pickles, with EXTRA spicy bomb sauce.. So like 3 different times she asks me "You said everything but peppers and onions, right?" Uggghhh. After the sandwich was done, I asked her for a side container of bomb sauce (I'm not kidding about this sauce.. it seriously lives up to it's name!) because I just love it THAT much.
After ringing me up, I checked the bag, and she didn't put any sauce in there!!! Of course I let her know and she was happy to grab it for me.. but damn woman! Why you wanna do me like that?
In conclusion, while this may sound like a terrible review, the experience wasn't all that bad. I'm a patient person, and the actual sandwich definitely made up for all the crap it took to get it. Plus, I understand that these people are new to this as they have only been working there for a month or so, and I am cutting them some slack, because I know the potential that this place holds. Hopefully someday this will be as good as the midtown location, and hopefully the next time I go here, I will get my experimental cream cheese tuna!!
