Re: “Edwards Mill Bar & Grill

The Edwards Mill Grill is a disgusting dump. Under no circumstances would I ever eat there again. I was going to meet up with a small group of acquaintances for an event in that general area, and we planned to go eat afterwards. I did a quick web search for restaurants in that area, and the Edwards Mill Grill came up and had a very good user rating. Well, this is obviously a case where employees and family members have gone on-line and given a place positive reviews, because there just isn’t any other way that this dump could ever get positive reviews. I ordered a burger and a salad, with blue cheese dressing. The quality of the salad itself was unusually good, i.e., fresh, green lettuce. But the dressing was watery and didn’t really taste at all like blue cheese. And it got worse when the burger came. When I order a burger in a restaurant, I expect the texture to resemble what you get if you go to a local supermarket and buy some ground beef at the meat counter, i.e., beef that has been freshly ground there in the store by the butcher. What I do not expect, and will never tolerate, is a patty of something that has been so thoroughly ground that it resembles more of a paste of some sort, that has been reconstituted into a patty. I know that you know what I’m talking about, because this kind of ground meat is not uncommon in cheap restaurants. And it tastes a lot like beef, but not completely like beef, and it is just disgusting. I wasn’t able to finish eating it, and the reason is partly that I was getting sick. It was disgusting. If I had not been with a group, I would have walked out as soon as they brought that burger. But when you are with a group, you can’t do that. When I give a restaurant my business, I do not think that I should be rewarded by having stomach cramps and gas for the next two or three days. I would never, ever eat at this dump again.

Re: “LaPlace

Nice variety on menu. I have tried most of the offerings and have yet to be disappointed. Most everything has been very tasty. My wife and I like to sit at the sidewalk tables outside. I am a stickler for good service and the wait staff at the gulf rim has been genuine, friendly, and not overbearing. My favorite restaurant in Hillsborough, and most of the ones downtown are very good.

Re: “Shiki Sushi

Great place to eat, great sushi, and wonderful environment. Not sure why the person above me could not find the manager. I have been enjoying the place for over a year and the managers are always walking around. I drive over an hour to enjoy sushi there every weekend!

Re: “Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store

My husband and I ate at the Roadhouse recently and the meal was tasty and the service was superb!! While there were the usual hiccups on opening day, they have worked out all the bugs and our dining experience was most pleasant. This restaurant is NOTHING like the old General Store Cafe; not only in decor but in particular with the food and service. They have continued not only the music nights but have continued to be involved with benefit events and recently sponsored a "Meet and greet" buffet where folks could come and meet our elected officials. They are offering 10% off your meal from now until election day if you wear your "I voted today" sticker. We love it that Greg Lewis also supports local farmers to supply some of the food used in their menus. You rock Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store!!!

Re: “Piedmont Restaurant

My wife and I have been to Piedmont several times since it opened, so I suppose our experiences have covered the history of the place. While we have never had a bad meal there, the service has always been the weak spot. Last night was the first time with the new chef. She had the clams with mint fettucini and I had the sausage penne. Both entrees were the best we have ever had at Piedmont. Dessert was retired beer malt ice cream over chocolate cake and a sourdough chocolate cake. Both were amazing. The only things keeping me from posting 5 stars are having to pay for the bread before the meal and a forgotten dessert spoon!

Re: “AniMall Pet Adoption & Outreach Center

Animall is Amazing! It sells quality products with profits going to support the cost of caring for its featured adoptive animals, and helps link all the local rescues, hosting adopathons and assisting with fundraising. Thank you to Jeremiah and the Animall!!

Re: “Legion Road Animal Clinic

Dr. Bennett refused to treat our 15 year old sick dog because my ex husband is out of town and has the paper work for her rabies shot... There is MUCH more to this situation, but my attorney advised me not to say anything... Don't go to Legion Road Animal Clinic!!! Even if your pet has a rabies shot, they will try to sell you another one which might kill an old sick dog... The vets at New Hope treated her anyway, but thanks to Bennett it might to too late.... If she dies the blood will be on Bennett's hands.... The 4 other clinics I spoke to said they would have treated her first, then worried about her paperwork later...

Re: “Spy Raleigh

Don't waste your time because the staff certainly won't "waste" time on you. Terrible service and terrible vibe. Seems like they hire people who look like wait staff but after spending some time there, I think they are just hired to make the place look like they actually have patrons and you still can't get anyone to serve a damn drink.

Re: “MachuPicchu Peruvian Cuisine

Machu Picchu is a wonderful restaurant experience. The menu is varied and all of the ingredients are clearly fresh. Chefs Gloria and Victor make a point to come out of the kitchen to visit their customers and will guide any patrons who are new to Peruvian cuisine. Dishes range from seafood to chicken to steak. Two of our favorites are the seafood Jalea and the Aji de Pollo (chicken). The seasoning is divine - incredibly flavorful - and not necessarily spicy. Chef Gloria also makes delicious authentic Peruvian desserts. They are made with fruits and spices imported from Peru and taste like nothing you have encountered before. If you enjoy good food, Machu Picchu is a MUST. We cannot praise this restaurant enough!
