Re: “Ali Baba

The recent change in management of the store didnt effect the great good that you can find here, i found this place one day driving down town and i looked like a really cute place to go. After that one time, i was hooked, good food and friendly service, the only thing i can say that was not up to par was the portion size of the lunch dishes, i thought they were on the small size.

My husband and I completely enjoyed our visit. The appetizer and entrees were incredible. The Kobe steak melted in your mouth! We were pleased with decent selection of Champagne and the thoroughly entertained by the cheesy/wonderful singer. I thought the service was very good and liked not being rushed. The dessert was a bit of disappointment but not horrible.

Overall, this place is such a great find in Boise where good restaurants are hard to find. We look forward to our next visit.

Re: “Repeat Boutique

I would say it's definitely one of the better used clothing stores in town. They give you more money for your clothes than any of the other stores: 40% cash or 50% store credit. Pretty good selection, good sales, great prices!

Re: “Rudy's Pub and Grill

Rudy's has turned a corner with new energy.
A list of specials is available, and the happy
hour is more enticing with $2.50 wells.
On a recent visit, my companion had a salad with fresh crab
that was excellent. I tried the Kobe beef sirloin
that was flavorful and served actually rare,
as requested. It was a treat.
The fries have always been excellent.
Rudy's is building a clientele of regulars.
I figure to be one of them.

Re: “Big Bun Drive-In

Fab. U. Lous. I've never been to Big Bun before Fanci Freeze took it over, but they must be doing something right. We had a great meal of hamburgers that were juicy without being greasy and shakes that were wonderful. My only complaint were the nothing-special, kind of sad little fries. They just didn't hold up to the rest of the meal, maybe if they did them fresh-cut and used hotter oil so they were crisp instead of floppy.

THE MEMBERS HAVE BEEN SO SUPPORTIVE FROM DAY ONE IN OCT OF LAST YEAR WHEN THERE WHERE 3 CARS IN THE PARKING LOT THE PLACE I THOUGHT WAS ABANDON. IT HAS COME A LONG WAY AND WEAR GETTING THERE. WE DON’T HAVE ANY SALES PEOPLE BECAUSE FOR THE PRICE AND NO CONTRACT MONTH TO MONTH MY PORTER ENROLLS NEW MEMBERS ANY BODY CAN. I DON’T CHARGE ALL THOSE FEE BECAUSE I WOULD RATHER HAVE MY MEMBERS INVEST IN PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE TO INSURE THEY REACH THERE GOAL. ALSO WITH THE TRAINING YOU ONLY PAY FOR THE TIME YOUR WITH THE TRAINER SO AFTER YOU WALK IN AND YOUR TRAINER HAS YOU GET ON THE TREADMILL MILL OR WORM UP FOR 20/30 MIN YOU GET ABOUT 30 MINUTES WITH THEM SO IF YOU ARE SPENDING MORE THAN $30 A SESSION I‘M SORRY.

Re: “Parkcenter Fitness and Rec

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.

Re: “The View At Broadmore

Good food ,Great service Nice setting. After eating there 15 times, the menu is getting old. It does need some new items.1992heritage

Re: “Parkcenter Fitness and Rec

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.

Re: “Parkcenter Fitness and Rec

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.

Re: “Sa-Wad-Dee Thai Restaurant

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.

Re: “Pho Nouveau

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.

Re: “Red Robin-Meridian

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.

Re: “Big Bird's Burgers

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.

Re: “Tepanyaki Japanese Steak House

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.

Re: “Chadder's

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.
