Lazy Dog many times for a special treat every now and then for lunch
Great Chili Dogs – Have been to Lazy Dog many times for a special treat every now and then for lunch. Everyone who I go with, always loves it. I have yet to eat anything, that I didnt like or had to send back for any reason, The wait staff has always been prompt, and courteous, In fact going tomorrow for a belated bday lunch....cya guys soon.
turns down reservations! – I already have a bad impression before I'm able to walk in the front door. Just tried to make a reservation for 6 and was told they've taken too many - that basically tells me they don't want the business! I asked if we'd be turned away if we just "walked in" and was told we'd have a long wait. Again, telling me they don't want the business. So guess what? They won't be getting it! And I'll be making sure that other people know about my experience!
First Impressions Mean EVERYTHING! – Following my first visit recently, " A pleasant surprise" would be a gross understatement. A very comfortable, relaxed and open decor combined with fantastic, unique food and awesome drinks makes being lazy a good thing for you. Aside from the cool appetizers and brew sampler, I had the Lamb Stroganoff which was delicious (Be hungry!) and sampled the peach Mojito. (Another round, please!) Everything was perfect and our server made sure we didn't miss a thing, including dessert.
Next time, I'm having the Meatloaf.
I give it Four Stars based on my first impressions. I look forward to giving it it's Fifth.
Only go if the wait is too long everywhere else – I visited the Lazy Dog Cafe in Anaheim with a friend for the first time on May 26. We ordered the Shanghai Tacos for starters and later on I had the Chipotle Chicken burrito. First I want to comment on the starter- I didn't think it was that good. Both The Cheesecake Factory and PF Changs have a similar starter, so I had some frame of reference to compare. The ground chicken was bland and tasteless. The lettuce cups we were served with the ground chicken filling were enormous. They were about the size of a baseball cap (INot kidding). Lettuce is not that bendy and so everytime we tried to roll the filling into the lettuce, it would snap and the filling would fall out. A butter lettuce leaf or other higher quality leaf lettuce would have been better, but overall between the mediocre filling and the giant lettuce leaf, it was a disappointing starter. For my main course I had the Chipotle Chicken Burrito. This was very tasty looking and large in size. I ate about 1/3 of it and have to say that it was very tasty. The chipotle flavor was just the right amount of flavor and heat for this dish. The chicken was tender and complemented by roast red peppers and black beans. I was very disappointed to find a chunk of shredded beef in my burrito. I DO NOT eat red meat at all, so this was very disturbing. This made me wonder what else is "mixed-up" back in their kitchen. I also wanted to mention that they do not bring you anything at all to nibble on when you are first seated...no offence but that's just cheap. How much could a piece of bread and butter be, or a few tortilla chips? My friend had the Spaghetti Bolognese and requested a few extra pieces of the flatbread, which I tried- they were delicious! Even though I did not enjoy my initial experience, I went back for a second try with a co-worker. I had a Ceasar Salad with Chicken, I don't remember what he had. Just very mediocre, small bits of chicken. Service was ok both visits. Place itself was nothing special though.
