Re: “Bonefish Grill

I think this should read "Dinner for one $18" or Dinner for two $36. This is what I call sneaky advertising! Because nothing I read said "per person" until I went to the restaurant and the card says Dinner for Two $36. Why not just advertise it for $36 not $18. I don't care how "Bang Bang the shrimp is" it doesn't speak much for there advertising to lure people in. Let your food speak for itself because it is good.

Re: “Corky's

I have been there several times. I consider it middle of the road. The prices are not too bad and the service is pretty good. The ribs are most of the time slightly overcooked. Every now and then you get them perfect.

Re: “Cafe Eclectic

Our first experience was good, but the second time was amusing, in a bad way. We called ahead about desserts and were told they had stuff that they really didn't. Then, the desserts we got were not even fresh. They were dry and crumbly.

Re: “Germantown Commissary

Great chopped pork sandwich packed with meat and topped with slaw. Would not recommend the ribs. They were dry, dry and should not have been served. We had a late dinner around 7:00pm so the ribs were probably re-heated from the time they came out of the smoker that morning. Not the way to run a BBQ restaurant

Re: “Fino's From the Hill

Fino's is good and is similar to those deli's in St Louis. To the poster before me, they are probably closed monday b/c they are a small deli not a chain and everyone needs a day off. If you are ever in Germantown area, you should try Vanelli's Deli. Family owned, great food.

Re: “Fino's From the Hill

Fino's has the best homemade turnovers and soups. The service is friendly. Their Italian food is OK but not earth shattering. They have strange hours of operations, closing at 6:30 PM everyday, just when I start to get hungry after work. Closed on Mondays- I never understood that concept when being located in such a large market area. Parking is always a challenge.

Re: “Golden India

The Tandoori mixed grill is a favorite and I actually crave and look forward to it. I never tire of anything I have there. The tofu is fresh and creamy. The Mulligatawny soup will cure what ails you. All food is fresh, simple and complex at the same time. Wait staff like family, never intrusive. The buffet is a treat and all easy on the pocketbook.

Re: “Rendezvous, Charles Vergos'

This place gets mentioned whenever someone talks about Memphis BBQ, but you should go to the Bar-B-Q Shop for a taste of real Memphis BBQ.

Re: “Molly's La Casita

Nothing special about this place. Food is decent, but the service kinda sucks.

Re: “Corky's

The BBQ is kinda bland, but the potato salad is worth the drive from Midtown. I'd never go there if my favorite BBQ joint, The Bar-B-Q Shop, had their own potato salad.

Re: “Tycoon

Decent food at average prices. I've been three times and never been disappointed. Also never been bowled over. The noodles are good.

Interesting factoid - there used to be a silk flower shop in this location.

Re: “Petra Cafe

I've been once, at lunch, and it was quite good. The service was good - they acted like they were actually happy you walked through the door. If I have one complaint, it is the location. That little strip, with the sports bar and the convenience store, and Danvers on the other side, and a big area of poorly-defined parking, makes for traffic hell at lunch time. They must be getting a break on rent, because it has to be hurting their business.

Re: “Mister B's

I haven't been in a few years, used to go quite often. Last time I was there I had soft-shell crab and gumbo and both were pretty good.

However - a warning: Don't use your debit card here. Just saying. Pay with cash.

Re: “Carrabba's Italian Grill

I have mixed feelings about Carrabbas. First of all, it's a cookie-cutter franchise restaurant, and don't we have enough of those already? The food is pretty good, but the reason we go is to get an off-menu appetizer called The Scotty Thompson. It sounds like something out of a Monty Python skit, I know. But it's good, mon. Basically just toasted garlic bread with a marinara dip into which has been placed slices of soft goat cheese. And yes, it's ridiculously easy to make at home. But it's good, mon.

On the other hand, the last two times I ate at this Carrabba's location, I developed gastric distress not long after. Sad to say I won't be going back.

Re: “Blue Plate CafĂ©

The food is so-so country cooking, better than Cracker Barrel, but only just. Service is spotty, varying between adequate and atrocious. Neither cheap nor expensive. It's a decent, average place to get a decent, average meal.

Re: “Central BBQ

Last time was there was before the "renovations." The food was ok, but there was a profound odor of dog turds throughout the restaurant that day. It rather put me off the food.
