So-So – I saw a segement on local TV a short time ago and decided to try it, I have to say i was let down from my expectations, Food was OK, nothing great but the service was poor and the bathrooms were disgusting. I wouldn't go back.
Total Hype, Utter Garbage – The wait was endless which usually points to good food, however it was Ok but the service was poor to say the least and that is being generous, the order was wrong, The owner was around but was a total ahole, After reading good things I was severly disapointed and would not recommend this place to anyone. It appears to be another "in" place for some folks but not the kind we wish to eat with.
There are much much better places locally I would try before ever telling our friends to eat there.
Horrible service! Extremely unsanitary – Horrible horrible service. We were getting our own water from the pitchers that were left out. The waitress was playing drinking games with some of the customers. Food's very good but I can get just as good of food with a much better environment. Needless to say we didn't stay for dessert. We wanted to get out of there asap! When we brought it up to the waitress she made excuses for herself. I'll never go there again and I'm going to tell everyone else not to go there! Go to Nicki's instead, it's much more professional.
I always make it here when I'm in town – I love the food at this restaurant. We've moved out of state but I visit here every time we're back in town. The Bianco Rosso sauce is spectacular. I love the beef sandwich or REAL CHICAGO HOT DOGS (sport peppers included) for lunch. My husband usually gets the sausage and peppers with the meat sauce (caution the sausage is HOT). This place is very popular so I really try to avoid Friday and Saturday nights because there isn't a lot of space. You can only fit so many waitresses up front and so many cooks in back so (not their fault) but if its during a rush they can be a bit slow.
Best Italian Beef North of Chicago – Pasquale's is the one and only eatery around here that I will take ANYONE to and always get great homemade food and good service. Pasquale's is a small, old "saloon" in downtown West DePere. It is NOT fast food. Each selection is made from scratch. The freshest ingredients are used. Due to the fact that this is a small establishment it can get quite busy and crowded. I prefer to go after the lunch crowd has gone and before the dinner crowd hits. I have dined here many, many times and always had delicious food. A friend's husband, who is Italian and grew up on the south side of Chicago, praised the Italian Beef sandwich as excellent. The ribs are to die for. Try it for yourself! No one that I know who goes here has EVER had a complaint.
The "P" cafe – I heard so much "BUZZ" about this place I took the family in for Dinner. Our ONLY out to eat trip for the month! Please keep in mind we do not do fast food. WE COOK DAILY! WE did get a table at this restaurant. However, we were overlooked so many times for regular customers. The food took a really long time to not get all of our order. I assumed this meant our food would have been good or even GREAT! I had the "famous" alfredo sauce which was out of a jar. Olive Graden would have been better! The kids had a hot ham & cheese, chili dogs, not chicago style! One also had a cheese burger. All the french fries were undercooked. I told someone three times the fries were never taken back. My husband had French onion soup, instant boullion with cheese put on top! But never was given anything to drink with his meal! I complained and paid for the meal. I have since told my 200+ co-workers and any one who will listen. You can have bad service but good food. You can have good food and bad service, but both is horrible. The owner even agreed we had horrible service as he had to retrieve some of our food. It seemed as if he was not fazed by the comments. Perhaps, he had heard them all before! Do your self a favor find another place to eat!
worth checking out – Pasquale's is wonderful.. if you like authentic Chicago style food this is the place to go.... Dennis the owner always goes out of his way to joke and make your dining experience a great time. The staff takes the time to get to know you as well as make sure your dining is pleasurable.. be sure to try the seafood ravioli... its out of this world
tasty – the closest Green Bay has come to Chicago food. Delicious and a great selection whether you want a quick bite or a huge meal. Great service, purposely laid back and awesome beer selection!!!
