Even though this place is a chain it has great food and outstanding service. The fact that this place is ALWAYS busy attests to this fact. Because there typically is a 20-25 minute wait for a table on a Friday or Saturday night we usually...More

Wayne, our server was fantastic! I started with a "Two In The Bowl" bowl of soup 1/2 SEDONA TORTILLA & 1/2 BAKED POTATO. Very good! For my main entree, I ordered the THAI CRUNCH salad: Crisp veggies and fresh cilantro with chicken and the crunch...More

I know this is a chain, but the kitchen team here rocks! We sat at the bar and watched all the food prep logistics. Frans, the bartender is fantastic. He tended to 15 customers while making drinks for others in the restaurant, and my water...More

Been to this restaurant a bunch of times at other locations and the pod is always great and the service always stinks. First time at this location and my 5 year old wanted to get lunch here...I was dreading the experience. However to my surprise,...More

This CPK inside westfield Montgomery Mall is a terrific valye and an astounding gem. This cafe with an extensive menu for all tastes serves up surprisingly fresh food and is definitely striving for new heights. They've just introduced a halibut entree worthy of a five...More

I've gone to this restaurant, on and off, for years. It's okay. Nothing special. Their salads often use lettuce that is too hard. I would throw that part of the lettuce in the garbage at home. Their pizza varies from very good to maybe the...More

It's an average place to eat. Ok food, decent prices. It is what it is. Pizza is good, but nothing to write home about. Service is ok, but it's really busy and the servers are a constant flurry of motion. Little too busy for me....More
