With its vibrant 80′s decor and friendly service, Five Guys is a sure hit if you’re craving a fast meal. Step into this restaurant and you’ll be greeted with the fun red-and-white checkered counters and friendly staff. Five Guys is a fast-food restaurant serving hamburgers, French fries, hot dogs, and sandwiches. With over 625 locations, it is definitely a popular stop for a quick meal, which is understandable considering all of its assets.

Five guys serves freshly made hamburgers, French fries, hot dogs, and sandwiches. The chain stands firmly in not serving frozen foods, which is comforting considering the amount of chemicals that are used to preserve frozen foods in normal restaurants. Although it is simply hot dogs and hamburgers, according to the Five Guys’ website, there are over 200,000 ways to eat a Five Guys’ burger. If that’s not variety, I don’t know what is! All of their vegetables are freshly cut, and you can even see the giant bags of potatoes stacked up behind the counters waiting to be turned into the popular Cajun French fries. As well as being fresh, the portion sizes for the meals are immense considering how much they cost.

The first time I ever went to Five Guys, I took one look at the prices and wanted to leave. Five dollars and thirty-seven cents for a burger seemed completely absurd considering just down the street I could have gotten a cheese burger for a dollar. But once I got my order, I realized just how worthy it was. The burgers are huge, and Five Guys loads the take-out bags with tons of delicious French fries. The meal is enough to fill you up for most of the day, which is why the moderate prices shouldn’t be bothersome.

One issue Five Guys does present is eco-friendliness. The food is wrapped in aluminum foil and placed into paper bags. If it were possible, it would be great for them to use eco-friendly materials because after all, they do sell a lot of meals daily. If the chain were eco-friendly, it would improve its image and encourage customers to take on that eco-friendly attitude as well.

When going out to eat, many people are concerned with counting calories. If you’re one of those people, this is definitely not the place for you. A regular burger from Five Guys is packed with 840 calories, and a large order of fries will fill you up with about 570 calories. If Five Guys were a little more conscious about the methods used to cook and just how many calories are in the foods, it would probably be able to draw members from health conscious audiences considering food is tasty and wholesome and the prices are moderate.

Another negative to aspect to the food at Five Guys would be the allergens aspect. The establishment does not have signs or any information on its website about whether or not the foods are gluten free. The restaurants also have a fun peanut station set up for customers to have a quick snack while waiting in line, which can sometimes get extensive considering how very few Five Guys restaurants there are in Connecticut. This peanut station poses a threat to anyone with peanut allergies because there is virtually no way of avoiding it. If Five Guys added an allergen list and made it available so people with allergies could see the ingredients, it would draw a much larger crowd or at least a more knowledgeable one.

The staff at Five Guys is some of the most friendly staff at a fast food restaurant I’ve ever come in contact with. They are more than willing to give you information on how their menu works and what the options are. They are patient and inviting, which is always a plus considering most fast food places are focused on getting you in and out as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, getting in and out of the restaurant in a timely fashion rarely happens. Although there are 14 Five Guys restaurants located in Connecticut, they are quite small in size. On the weekends or around dinnertime, they are the hot spot for meals. For that reason, if you’re going to get a burger at Five Guys, don’t go on a complete empty stomach or you’ll be munching on peanuts for about 15 minutes before getting your order. Fast food isn’t necessarily what you’re going to be getting.

Overall, Five Guys is a great bang for your buck. It’s got delicious food, a wide variety, moderate prices, and fun friendly service. Just be careful if you’re health conscious or don’t want to wait around. If so, this place may not be for you

Review of Subway by Krystina Mancini

With the economic downfall in the nation, many food chains have striven to keep pace in this harsh economy. Subway is a very well known sandwich industry in the United States and is one of the food chains surviving and prospering from the economy. But just how can a sandwich company prosper? Food, likability, cost, service/cleanliness, and variety are what have made the chain prosper and become one of the most well known companies, with 35,582 restaurants in 99 countries (Subway).

Going into Subway, your eye is attracted to colorful half-white, half-yellow signage. When you walk in, the enthusiastic team and cleanliness of the place are noticeable. The food is one of the main reasons why people go to a Subway. Subway is a fast food restaurant that allows you to select ingredients from the menu board and have the wait staff create your sandwich to your liking. There are many different types of sandwiches, such as veggie delight, B.L.T, meatball, buffalo chicken, and so many more!

There are also numerous varieties of breads, such as wheat, Italian, and honey oat, as well as different types of meats and toppings. Not only does Subway offer sandwiches, but now the chain also has pizza, salads, and soups. The variety of choices is welcoming in a fast-food chain. You can also choose chips, cookies, soda, juice, apple slices, parfaits, and other items to go with your sandwich. Subway also serves breakfast!

Cost plays an important factor when choosing a restaurant. Subway is definitely affordable. The chain runs a deal for a foot-long sub at $5.00, which is affordable in our current economy. The chain always runs special deals! For example, in the month of November, you can buy one six-inch sub and get one free if you buy before 9 am. These special deals are what attract customers to Subway.

Service and cleanliness are major factor when choosing where to eat. When people go to a fast food restaurant, they want to be able to have great service and find the place where clean. If a restaurant is dirty, it is likely that the food and service will not be good. As a fast food restaurant, Subway restaurants are clean. The food is always fresh, and the service is always great!

There is only one downfall to Subway; not everyone likes sandwiches! If you are not a sandwich person, Subways is not the best place, although you find pizza, salads, and soups as options. Subway also has competitors such as Nardelli’s and Italian sandwich places, and other little delis are in competition with Subway. The great deals that Subway offers, the service and cleanliness, the quality and variety of food, and the pricing all help to make Subway a number one choice!

Review of Harry’s Pizza Bishop’s Corner by Summer Distefano

Walking into Harry’s Bishop’s Corner Pizza, I could instantly tell that I was in for an authentic Italian treat. My family and I instantly decided we should try this slice of West Hartford dining. When we arrived, a friendly hostess, who promptly seated us, greeted us with a more than welcoming smile.

weblogs.ctnow.com

Within minutes after being seated our waitress arrived at our table with a cheery smile. She asked us if we had been to Harry’s to which we responded no. After hearing our response she was more than eager to tell us the history of the restaurant, which is an interesting story. The original Harry’s started out in West Hartford Center and was run by Harry, his wife, and an unrelated manager. When Harry and his wife split up, she and the manager got not only the restaurant, but also the name Harry’s Pizza. Harry did not let that stop him from opening up a spot across town called Harry’s Bishop’s Corner Pizza. To this day Harry and his ex wife are still competing to see who can make the best pizza in West Hartford.

After telling the story the waitress took our drink order, leaving us to look over the vast menu. I instantly set my eyes on the classic cheese pizza. I figured it would be an easy way to judge the pizza and it is of course my favorite kind. Everyone can make a cheese pizza, but not everyone can make it taste as good as it looks.

Our waitress came back to the table and told us about the variety of salad dressings and that the restaurant chefs make dressings from scratch and that the restaurant even sells it by the bottle! I was convinced I needed to try one of these salads and homemade dressings. I settled for their classic house salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing, my favorite. She asked us if we had decided on the pizza we wanted, and we all shook our heads in agreement. We told her we wanted a large mozzarella pizza, to which she responded with rave reviews! She told us we had made a good decision, and we would not be disappointed.

The waitress proceeded to take our menus and walked away, leaving us to admire the atmosphere. I looked around at all the tables, which were almost all taken up by hungry patrons. Many families with young children were laughing, smiling, and enjoying their pizza. You could easily tell that this is a very friendly, family oriented, and welcoming place. The atmosphere is irresistible! There were also people lined up waiting for their take out order to be ready. I made a note to myself that my roommates and I should try take out one night!

Within a few minutes, our waitress arrived with our salads. The dressing was on the side, a nice feature that most restaurants do not do. The salad was packed with flavor, and the fresh vegetables made it a refreshing treat. Within minutes of finishing the salad, our brick oven pizza arrived at the table. The aroma was unbelievable! The pizza was New York style: thin crust with a delightfully fresh tomato sauce. The pizza is easily comparable to Pepe’s Pizza, a Connecticut pizza icon. The only difference is that Pepe’s cooks its pizza a little differently, so the crust is blackened. Harry’s cooks its crust perfectly, so there is not a burnt taste.

Overall, Harry’s Bishop’s Corner pizza is a delightful treat that will not break your budget. We ended up only paying $14.25 for a large pizza, as opposed to $15.50 for a large Pepe’s pizza. In the summer and winter months, Harry’s Bishop’s Corner offers seasonal pizza options for around $22.50. In the summer, it offers a fresh spinach pizza with locally made Italian sausage. When it gets a bit chilly, stop into enjoy the crimini mushrooms and roasted asparagus pizza. The house salad was a fair $6.00, although some may consider that to be a pricey salad, with the amount of fresh vegetables, it is priced just right.

Harry’s Bishops Corner Pizza, although a very desirable place to eat, still has some drawbacks. Since the restaurant is very small inside, it is unable to accommodate large parties. Pizza parties are always a fun birthday party treat; extra seating for large parties is something that Harry’s pizza should work on adding. Another undesirable feature is Harry’s only serves pizza and salad. Many people who go out to eat for pizza like a side of pasta with their meal. Harry’s does not offer that, which may be a downside to those people looking to enjoy something other than pizza.

Overall Harry’s Bishop’s Corner Pizza offers a unique taste of West Hartford. With affordable prices, a friendly environment, and savory pizza, how can you go wrong? Whether you are going on a first date or taking your family out, Harry’s is a great option that should be greatly considered!

Review of No Name Tortilla Grill by Christina Arcidiacono

Going out and enjoying a pleasant meal that you don’t regret is becoming harder and harder to do with the increase in fast food joints and chain restaurants across the state.  Finding a restaurant that has fresh food is hard enough, given many chain restaurants rely on frozen prepared dishes.  When consumers go out for a meal, they want to eat something that is worth their money and doesn’t make them feel like a bucket of grease when walking out.  Therefore, the food has to be high quality without leaving a hole in their pocket!  The food at No Name Tortilla Grill hits one out of the park when it comes to more bang for your buck.

  No Name Tortilla Grill is a small, inviting tortilla restaurant located in Berlin, Connecticut.  The No Name restaurant attracts a vast and diverse range of customers.  With a cozy and friendly atmosphere, all customers feel as if they are at home. Similar tortilla restaurants, like Taco Bell, are geared more towards the late night quick meal and the ‘guys night out.’  It’s uplifting to finally find a restaurant that is welcoming to customers from all necks of the woods.  Whether you feel like having a hefty stuffed burrito, cheesy and stuffed quesadilla, or a mounding fiesta salad bowl, if you are in the mood for southwestern styled food, No Name Tortilla Grill is the place to go.

The wait staff at No Name Tortilla Grill prepare the food right in front of you as you tell them each and every ingredient you want in the order.  Customers are able to see the ingredients that are going into their meal.  Not only do the ingredients look fresh and tasty, but they also taste as if they were freshly picked from a garden.  Being able to see the food ordered getting prepared in front of you insures that you know what is going into your meal.  Restaurants like Taco Bell prepare food in the back kitchen, and when you get your, it doesn’t quite look as good as the picture on the menu board.  No Name Tortilla Grill gives each customer voluptuous and delicious looking food that tastes as if it was prepared by the tortilla master of all of mankind.  With every bite, outrageous flavors take over your taste buds and flavor blasts your palette.   However, there are multiple staff preparing your one dish, which some may perceive as unsanitary.  Nonetheless, there are sanitation laws required by all restaurants.  From the appearance of the staff and the restaurant itself, it seems that the laws are followed at No Name Tortilla Grill.  Each staff member wears gloves when preparing each order, and a health code certificate is posted.   One of the restaurant’s greatest attributes is the quality of food without leaving patrons bankrupt.  Not only is the food tasty, but the portion sizes are also out of this world.

Without spending a fortune, patrons get enough food to fill them and a meal that tastes authentic.  Even so, be careful when bringing kids.  There is not a specific children’s menu, and because the portion sizes are huge, order something that children could eat.  Ordering what appears to be a three-pound burrito for a child probably doesn’t sound like the brightest idea, and would be a waste of money.  However, if the giant burrito is what the child wants, the child has the leftovers to take home. On the other hand, the restaurant does offer orders of one or two tacos that are not so huge.  The tacos could be the perfect size for those with smaller appetites.  As well, children also get the advantage of picking and choosing what they want and don’t want in their orders, which is a plus for those fussy eaters. Yet, keep in mind every meal comes with a heaping side of freshly made, crispy, and not overly salty nacho chips.  A unique feature of No Name Tortilla Grill is that it offers a wide variety of vegetarian friendly meals.  Some of the vegetarian friendly options include vegetarian burritos and salads packed with fresh vegetables (No Name Tortilla Grill, 2011).  This particular attribute widens the range of customers that No Name Tortilla Grill attracts.

Even though places like Taco Bell sell their triple layer nachos for only $.89 (Taco Bell, 2011), the customer is not getting a lot of food, and the little food you do get is quality that dogs don’t even deserve.  When customers order the nachos with meat from No Name Tortilla Grill, they get to choose what you want on them, and the portion is enough for the entire Brady Bunch Family!  The nachos with meat are $7.99, but customers get more than what they pay for (No Name Tortilla Grill, 2011).  Is it worth the extra $7.10? If consumers want food that makes them feel good and is enough to satisfy, then No Name Tortilla Grill makes it worth the splurge.   With genuine and authentic decorations, the restaurant creates a cozy ‘at home’ feel.  Not only is the environment inviting, but the staff is also helpful and pleasing.  However, the restaurant is somewhat dark.  The dim lighting creates a dark and dreary vibe.  Yet, the food and décor arguably make up for this minor flaw.  Corona styled salt and pepper shakers, Choco Taco advertisements, and southwestern styled art stick to the theme well.  Everything seems to flow well, which creates a pleasant environment that allows customers to relax, kick their feet up, and enjoy their experience.  An authentically decorated chalkboard at the point of order also displays monthly specials. Some of the specials include different soups and different flavored chicken wings.  This feature gives the restaurant an exclusive feature that keeps customers interested and coming back.  However, if there’s a unique special that you take a liking too, the specials are limited time only and not permanent to the menu.  The bright side is that you get to experience new flavors each and every time the special changes, without spending a fortune.  It would almost seem foolish to go to a fast food joint for a southwestern meal instead of going to the No Name Tortilla Grill.  No Name Tortilla Grill provides food that’s at the top of the totem pole without the jaw dropping prices.  Not to mention, the quality of the food is unheard of by today’s standards.  No Name Tortilla Grill has scored the touchdown for providing consumers with more bang for their buck!  The ambiance at this restaurant is not only authentic and engaging, but it’s fun, enjoyable, and comfortable for customers from all walks of life.  If it’s impeccable southwestern cuisine you seek, No Name Tortilla Grill is one to tip your sombrero to!

Carmine’s Restaurant Review by Shelika Drummond

The first Carmine’s opened on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and became a trendsetter for Italian dinner houses. The artistically arranged pictures, long dark red curtains, and deep gold brown walls created an antique flavor of the 1920’s to the 1940’s, suggesting the restaurant had “been around for a very long time” (Carmine’s, 2011). The establishment became a booming hit, known for its oversized portions at reasonable prices. Soon, the owner, Artie Cutler, began to invest in more locations and found himself with a multi-international restaurant. Even now, it “is currently one of Broadway’s longest running hits!” (Carmine’s, 2011)
Within 20 years, Carmine’s, a family-oriented Italian restaurant, rooted itself not only in New York, but also Nassau, the Bahamas, New Jersey, Atlantic City, and Washington D.C. Restaurateur Artie Cutler, creator of Carmine’s had a goal in mind, to offer meals ” in the style of an Italian American wedding feast… and serve platters designed for sharing” (Carmine’s, 2011). His goal created the warm, sharing and overall welcoming environment Carmine’s is known for. When a restaurant serves food in large quantities, the quality suffers. Carmine’s is an exception to this rule; each plate deserves at least four stars. The wait staff is not as notable, but still very informative if asked any questions.
Carmine’s serves portions large enough to fill three to four people and provides good quality tasting food. It’s almost like a buffet, but the food is superb. For example, my two young active boy cousins ordered one dish of spaghetti for dinner and just the amount brought a smile to everyone’s face. It was as if you got the largest pot in the house and filled it with spaghetti and sauce twice, before serving it. The large portion makes you give credit to the waiters and waitresses who carry such heavy dishes. My cousins eat so much that I’m sure they could rival the hungry hippos. The capability of the restaurant to fill both of them and have leftovers left me speechless. Thirty-five dollars may be shocking price at first, but when you’re able to see the amount and the impossible being done, it is worth every penny.
Personally, I’m not a fan of Italian restaurants because the pasta dishes are never usually tasty. The sauce is often too light in taste as if not to overpower the pasta that has no taste at all. This happens in Italian restaurants like Olive Garden and Subarro’s. Carmine’s is very different. The taste screams 5 stars, but since there’s no such thing as perfection, it’s bumped down to 4.5. Even though the portions and taste are supreme, visual-wise, the dishes look uncreative. Carmine’s gives a lot of food, but the goal is to attract customers, and pretty plates with creative arrangements of food are a start. For example, their strawberry shortcake is simply a tall pyramid of whip cream with strawberry pieces stuck awkwardly to the sides on a single piece of cake. It looks as if no attempt was made to create a design, but despite the unprofessional look, the homemade whip cream and sweet strawberries are delicious.
Within the bustling streets of New York City, specifically on the Upper West Side, sits the first Carmine’s. Even though the city is known for its continuous stream of people, Carmine’s is bound to be overlooked normally in a shopping district. More so, there’s better chance for people to choose another restaurant because of the numerous famous restaurants in New York City. In the inside, the walls of the restaurant are scaled with tons and tons of portraits of people and places. One can assume the portraits deal with the history of the restaurant, but unless you’ve been eating there since the 20’s, it’s likely you will not know nor care who the people are. The quantity and arrangement of the pictures are creative and their vintage look complements the deep gold painted walls and long red curtains. Overall, the environment is detailed with remnants of the past. It is interesting for history lovers. The restaurant staff also have the menu hung on the walls instead of handing them out. This was troublesome for my parents, who don’t have the best eyesight. As for the service, it is acceptable, but the staff should remember to warn patrons about the huge portions. The forgetfulness becomes a real problem for unknowing couples who become overwhelmed by the servings. It is a mistake made by the staff that can change a pleasant surprise into a troublesome realization.
Overall, Carmine’s is given 4.5 stars and definitely a place worth visiting if you’re with a big group or hoping for leftovers to last a week. Just about every dish except the strawberry shortcake is a large portion. It’s one of the only dishes that serves for one person. Just make sure to grab a handful of mints on the way out.
