Re: “Ashee Ethiopian Cuisine

This is now called Awaz and it's a charming little spot. I have spent about a month in Ethiopia and Eritrea and lived off their food 24/7 while in those countries. My second date with my now long term girlfriend was at an Ethiopian restaurant. I think for a white guy, I can speak pretty well to quality and this place is by far the best option we have in the Triangle, and really, one of the better ones in North America (DC is the Mecca for this cuisine, but Seattle holds its' own, too!).

I'm from Montreal and grew up eating steak tartars, so naturally I'm a big lover of kitfo, which is like Ethiopian steak tartare. You need to really trust a restaurant to eat food like that, which was NO problem for me. All the injera you need (teff grain based bread), some good sides like shiro, a lentil dish which is as comforting to me as homemade food from mom. Yes, I know my mother is not Ethiopian, it's just DAMN good.

There's a good menu, decent enough selection of wines/beers/typical cocktails. Don't go here thinking you'll have a renaissance with booze, but you will have a great meal.

Re: “Neomonde Bakery & Deli

Neomonde had an official name change recently. We are no longer Neomonde Bakery & Deli. We are now Neomonde Mediterranean.

Re: “The Loop Pizza Grill

Good food, quick service, great prices. Pizzas are great, but so are the salads, wraps, and burgers. If you are hungry, don't want to waste time, but don't want inferior 'fast food' or overpriced offerings from 'trendy' restaurants, give The Loop a try. You'll be glad you did.

Re: “Geer Street Garden

Great place to take friends, sit outdoors at big tables, have a beer, and eat great food from a small but very tasty menu.

Re: “Pei Wei Asian Diner

Terrific food, excellent fast service and nutritious alternatives (lettuce cups, extra veggies). A little noisy, but that's because it's so popular with the lunch hour crowd. A good value for your time and money.

Re: “Mesa Latin Kitchen

Excellent small plates. The sangria was the perfect partner to the dishes. I cannot wait to eat there again!

Re: “Antonia's

Antonia's is one of my all-time favorite Italian restos in Orange County. Occupying Hillsborough's vintage century-old space once filled by Tupelo's, Antonia's authentic cuisine alla Romana is sure to satisfy your culinary search for the real deal. Their casalinghe fettucine can be customized with any of 6 sauces as well as toppings of your choice. All their entrees are delizioso but my favorite is Filletto della Regina, a filet mignon that melts in your mouth.

Wash it all down with one of their excellent wine pairings and finish it off with a homemade dessert and a caffe corretto, and you'll be singing Arriverderci Roma in no time.

Re: “Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store

I usually don't take the time to post reviews, good or bad, but this place needs to be shared! I can't think of a better place I'd like to go for lunch, dinner or just about any kind of entertainment. This place has it all. It seems this place is very clean, very well managed, thought out, with a specific goal in mind. Not just providing more than exceptional food, but providing an experience. The wait staff was pleasant, efficient, and on top of everything (even with what looked to be a full house) My wife enjoyed the Gouda Mac n Cheese, I had the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, my daughter polished off a plate of angel hair pasta (she says its the sauce that makes it), and my son loved his hand battered chicken tenders. Portions are very generous and priced just right. It would be safe to say that the PBO Roadhouse isn't the cheapest place in town, but is by no means expensive. We paid exactly what I would expect to pay for what we got. This place has got it all, after looking at the entertainment lineup there, we realized this place is the place to be. Whether you like live music, (any genre, big band orchestra to AC/DC cover bands!), live theater performance, or even comedy shows, this place has it all. We will definitely be making this our regular weekly dining destination. Very much looking forward to a night out there without the kids too! Did I mention they have a HUGE dance floor and a nice bar? If you haven't been there, you need to go.....tonight, tomorrow, (heck, go tonight and tomorrow!) ,or just as soon as you can get there! You're missing out!
