Wow, not only does this picture turn me off to the place. As soon as I walked in I could smell dead rat and feces. Someone could catch a MRSA infection in here. I give this place no stars.
It started in the poorly-lit parking lot where reaching the entrance is a gauntlet of trip hazards for able-bodied patrons, let alone those with a handicap. The entrance is a nightmare, with no room to move and even less room to sit/stand and wait. The entrance is also the bar ??? – it’s congested chaos. A yurt was set up outside in the parking lot for diners waiting to be seated inside the restaurant, and rather than a wait person taking our drink order, putting it on our tab, and bringing it to us, we had to elbow our way between folks seated at the bar to buy our own and carry it outside. Pandemonium.
Our food was so-so, and the pasta was bland and flat because the water it was cooked in was obviously not salted. There’s no way to correct that once it’s covered in sauce – clearly someone in the kitchen doesn’t know what they’re doing. I’ve eaten in plenty of Italian eateries both in the US and Italy, and this one us about as “authentic” as its garlic bread, Italian dressing, spaghetti (with meatballs) and deep fried mozzarella sticks – Italians don’t eat any of this.

Excellent breakfast, great service and discount to Veterans. Will be back!
This place is complete crap! The unprofessional tattooist drugged, rapped and stole my wallet from me. I was just in town visiting my girlfriend and just to make matters worse the tattoo he was meant to do on me he NEVER finished.he completed the outline only! Very disappoinTed. I feel completely violated and straight takenow advantage of. So I strongly believe that the high ratings this place has are not lagit! Be aware of this place. The tattoo artist ( if you can even call him that) is named Erik Mendonza.STAY AWAY FROM HIM!
I recently attended the Snoop Dogg concert and we were so excited to see him. We showed up at 7 only to wait until well after 8 for the show to start. Then, this guy, who knows who he was came out and started trying to "act" funny... It was terrible. Secondly, the artists that came on before Snoop Dogg were worse than terrible and were basically just performing karaoke to other more popular artists. Then, once they were done we waited over an hour to see Snoop standing on concrete floors because there wasn't ANY seating. Finally, we decided that after an hour of waiting to see Snoop Dogg and the hour and half we had to watch the other poorly performing artists we decided to leave, it was by far the worst concert and biggest waste of 2.5 hours of my life that I will never get back. Not to mention the 75.00 I spent for the tickets that I also will never get back. I will not be back!
After a loose, loud, and noisy performance at the recent Sapphire Room Fiesta Collaboration, It was sadly announced Tambalka will be disbanding. But there is something to pick up our broken hearts. Esteban Anastasio and Ashley Rose Smith are starting a new duo they’re calling Cuck-A-Doodle and the Free Range Hen. We’re all looking forward to what they’ll bring to Boise.
Unfriendly customers and services. Worst piece of shit bar to ever exist.
Best Pawnshop in town and the employees are friendly. I don't bother with CraigsList scammers, just sell my stuff them, safely with no hassle. Half the stuff I own, I have picked up at Vista Pawn over the years. Love it.
As hassle free a buying experience as you're ever gonna find. Nice clean stuff and a friendly staff. I will definitely be back in the future!
This program is all about smoke and mirrors. My child was abused and neglected while she was there. Project Patch manages the children with fear, intimidation and punishment. They also force their religion down their throats.If the children do not participate in their religion (Seventh Day Adventist), they are punished. I finally had to pull my daughter from the program because of the abuse, secrecy, and neglect. There is absolutely no therapy what so ever. They have nothing but family members working together so it’s very hush, hush. I called in Health & Welfare who found they were not in compliance with many of my expressed concerns. Lastly, may we not forget the scandal in 2009 when they had the secretary’s son working there, Ryan Vanhook. who kidnapped and sexually assaulted one of the children there. He was found guilty and imprisoned (see archives for KTVB who were on top of that story).
My daughter still suffers from anxiety because of this program. It would behoove you to do your research before choosing such a damaging program for your child!
FYI-they are certified, but not licensed. This allows them a great deal of non-monitored control.
Racist décor- Unfortunately we did not notice the racist décor until after our meal. When we let the server know that the décor was offensive, she let us know that they all knew it was offensive as they have had complaints before but the owner refuses to take down their ‘Mammys’ because they are part of her grandfather’s “Mammy collection” (as if this explanation makes it ok? If my grandfather was a Nazi, I wouldn’t display his regalia)… Server’s response was “You can’t change everyone”. Nope, sure can’t but I can decide to not eat breakfast surrounded by willful ignorance. I will not be returning to The Griddle. I will be encouraging others to find other restaurant options.
Why is the "Mammy" stereotype harmful to African American women? Here are a few links:

After years of oppression from drug addiction and having been prayed over by so many pastors, in my wildest dreams I never believed that God thru Jesus Christ would deliver me in such a small but very, very spiritual place of worship! Pastor Okhee is a major tool used by God and I'm living proof of The Power of Christ... Isaiah 61
Low wage workers who don't care and why should they? A group of three ahead of me in line. Took an hour t o get Ice cream.
Thought I had canceled my membership in person then months later they contact me saying I owe them $170 . They had me in person signing off on god knows what and now this. Very unprofessional and underhanded do not get a membership here go someplace else..
I eat at Lima Limon frequently. Everything is made fresh when you order it, but that takes time. The flavors are a treat for those that wish to escape the mundane routine menu.
I have had negative experiences at many restaurants that people rave about, and sadly, one can get that bad day about anywhere.
I would give the food a 5, the service being slow a 3, and the atmosphere a 4. The bar side is excellent for BSU Football games, no smoking. Warm, attractive restaurant and bar.
For those that seek a fresh, friendly, and unique dining experience, I highly recommend Lima Limon!
I'm a big fan of Addie's. I've been going there for years, and will continue to do so.
