P.S HAVE I MADE EVERYBODY HAPPY I THANK NOT BUT I GAVE IT MY BEST EFFORT. NOW THEY HAVE TO WORK THROUGH IT AND I WISH THEM THE BEST.
My girlfriend and I were members of Park Center for about 5 months before we recently moved to the far west side of Boise to where it was no longer convenient. We were both very happy with the facilities, as well as the personnel, who were always friendly and helpful. Far from their being "money grubbers" as some of the other posts here claim, we found that when we disenrolled they did NOT, like at least one other gym in town, charge us for a last month. I have always found the locker rooms clean, serviceable, and plenty big. The pool is big and was never crowded when we were ther. The steam room, dry heat room, and spa all worked fine, plus there's a basketball court, which was almost always fully available. If you like crowds, go somewhere else. As for me, I thought it was great to be able to get to the gym equipment I wanted with seldom a wait. There are plenty of weights, weight machines, treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, you name it. I wish we could have brought Park Center to us over here to West Boise.
Good food ,Great service Nice setting. After eating there 15 times, the menu is getting old. It does need some new items.1992heritage
I also really like Parkcenter Fitness. I like the fact that it's never crowded. They have all the equipment I need and knowledgeable trainers. It's not expensive and they have great classes. I used to belong to Golds Gym and I prefer Parkcenter by far.
I really like Parkcenter Fitness. They gave me everything I signed up for, the staff is extremely friendly, and they have everything you need to work out and more. It's not super fancy but that’s what I like about it, I can go work out in a baggy t-shirt and no makeup and feel completely comfortable. I haven't had any problems with the machines or locker rooms. This is a great gym with a variety of classes, a pool, a basketball court, and all the equipment you need. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
I have been to Sa-Wad-Dee twice in the past month. Both experiences were delightful. Highlights included spicy basil duck that my wife placed in the very upper echelon of her duck list, and the shrimp tom kha. The tom kha is tangy, rich, fresh, and simply delightful. I could do with out the recent additions of live music on Wednesdays and a small fresh sushi offering. Both seem out of place.
We had two very nice experiences at Sa-Wad-Dee. The service was prompt and friendly. I can not point to any item or items as over priced, but the bill does seem to get pretty high. The quality certainly warrants the tariff, so it may just be that the bill seems high for the strip mall setting.
The happy hour is 2 4 1 beer/wine + 1/2 price appetizers. We had the Saigon Crepe which was excellent and the Summer Rolls, shrimp, which were good.
Then came the com suon tom nuong: thin tender pork chops with fantastic grilled shrimp. Neither were over done. My companion had the chicken pho bowl. The bowl was huge, so we shared and experimented with the additions. We liked the lime and basil. The server was efficient and offered suggestions with out being pompous.
It will help if you pronounce the name of the restaurant and the soup fuh, NOT FOE.
We are looking forward to a return engagement.
CC has been around a while. and while its always a pretty good experience, the menu has grown tired. cmon Brian change that menu up. everything except the salmon chowder soup, best soup in the state
We went on a busy Saturday at lunchtime. I had not been to a Red Robin for at least 3 years. We sat at the bar and had really excellent service. I would have liked my burger a little more rare, but I understand the reluctance to serve rare hamburger.
It was still very good, and the fries were superb. The place is clean, including the restrooms. The prices are reasonable for the high quality of the food, and the staff is well trained and friendly.
I tried Big Bird's for the first time because of these reviews, and I'm so glad I did! I bit the bullet and had the peanut butter burger first, because I just had to see what all the fuss was about. The fuss is legit. It was one of the best burgers I've ever had. The bacon was easily twice as thick as I've seen anywhere else. It was a little uneven, but where the peanut butter was in a thin layer, it just made the burger taste really buttery and good.
When I went back (as soon as possible!), I tried the pastrami burger. Unfortunately, it was SLATHERED with mustard and I couldn't taste anything else. I'd pass on that one unless you're a mustard lover. I had a bite of my boyfriend's mushroom bacon swiss with chicken, though, and it was incredibly juicy.
The fries both times were perfectly delicious. Crunchy batter on the outside, dipped in that spicy fry sauce with just enough kick but not too much for my wimpy tongue, they were a revelation. And speaking of Revelations, I didn't notice the Christian-ness of the decor at all, and I'm neither Christian nor anti-Christian. I didn't feel at any time that a religion was being pushed on me, but if you're sensitive about that kind of thing, well, I guess you'll miss out on some great food.
To be honest, on both occasions, my burger patty was a bit pink in the middle. I think I'll order it well done next time. But there will be a next time... oh yes. Some things could have been better, but the things that were right were SO GOOD I can't wait to go back. I've been craving and dreaming about Big Bird's ever since! It's the kind of place you can become a big fan of.
They have the best healthy food, its always fresh. The service is great. You never have to wait for refills and the cooks are so talented. The only thing I would change is the furniture in the waiting area, I feel they need to do some remodeling and some upgrades.
I have eaten there a couple of times now and I will definitely be back. When we go to California we always make sure to stop by In-N-Out burger at least once and I will say they are pretty darn close, don't care for the fries but they do cook them to order so they are always fresh. If you are a fan of In-N-Out burger then you need to give Chadders a try, the first time I ate there there were several family's from California and they said they grew up on In-N-Out burger and they were impressed.
Considering the fact that Idaho forbids nudity with the selling of alcohol, the best adult entertainment in Boise is at the Spearmint Rhino, hands down, no question about it, the BEST bikini bar / gentleman's club in Boise. Unlike other Spearmint Rhino's in the country, it's NOT a strip club, no one ever gets naked; here it's a celebration of the female form in erotic motion. The customers at the Boise Spearmint Rhino are from all walks of life. The atmosphere is classy, professional, and risque without being terribly sleezy. Although it's a bit loud it's a safe place to relax with a drink, watch the dancers on stage, and get private lap dances. No, it's not a strip club in Las Vegas. No one here has sex while getting a lap dance in a VIP room. Like the doorman told me, "this place isn't a rap video, it's just a good time without the mess." Low cover charge, decent drink prices, and far more dancers than any other club in town. That's why I go there.
My wife lived in Italy and she commented about the food to be a close to authentic Italian as you can get in the area. Excellent pizza and service. The new location is more convenient as well!
This place was just okay. Service was pleasant, but the food was mediocre. The prices are low, but there's not a lot included with each dish, so you end up spending the same amount you would many other places.
Randy up there is the reason that for the most part consumer reviews blow. People who have no idea what they're taking about can have undue influence. These sandwiches are amazing--fresh ingredients, authentic Vietnamese deli style, and deeeelicious pate. Randy and the rest of the supersizers can stay at Subway and... um, Starbucks. Maybe branch out to Blimpie if it ain't too scary. Those looking for a different deli experience, cheap and healthy and really great food, try this place. Excellent stuff.
I've always found the help knowledgeable and courteous. If you want an average wine go to the grocery store. If you want something exceptional, they're just about the only place to go.
I met someone for lunch here and had a very nice dining experience. The bread was fresh and of very good quality. I got the meatball sandwhich and was very happy with it. the sauce had great flavor with out being overly seasoned and the meatballs were moist and tender. The unique potato salad was unexpected, but a refreshing change from the usual fries. I would/will dine here again.
