we've been here twice but not in awhile. Really liked the curries and the satay!! We had a really good, traditional dessert, too - it might have been the wattalapan.

THEY STILL PLAY PAN FLUTE MUSIC? Wow. We were there months ago - almost a year? - and the pan flute music almost drove us insane.

The last time we were there, we ate their pizza and undoubtedly we were not impressed. I completely agree with you that their food is not even close to fast foods you can get at this price.

It was worth hitting up this place when they had the rabbit burger, but I hear it's off the menu now, so I won't be going back any longer.

Nicole, you didn't credit Marc Korman for his photo of the 1957 Appleton Street McDonald's. He took and owns the photo, not "Remember When" or the Milwaukee library.

I'll be honest, the pictures really make me want to go there, despite the review. I like spinach (though I understand "too much" spinach), but those sandwiches look great, as do those deviled eggs.

Unless they moved, QQ has been closed for quite a while.

everything I've ever had at this place has been good. They occasionally have a southwestern chicken sandwich (or something to that effect) as the special of the day - to die for!

Your dog is lined up perfectly relative to the looks like she is going to take a bite!

Is that upside down cheese on the chicken sandwich? What kind of sauce? That looks delicious!

Did JM give it a half point bump for "really awesome name"?

I've been wanting to try this place, but its hard to try a new unknown place when there are so many delicious pizza places in Madison. Good to know it's worth trying!

I used to work there. (In 1995, so quite a while back.) I would never, ever eat there.

Jim on House of Mei

I really like House of Mei. I do always wonder why there's nobody eating in what seems like a nice enough dining room, but a stream of people doing take out.... you know... just something I think about while I'm waiting for my take out. #partoftheproblem

MJA on Hilltop Inn

Based on this review we gave the fish fry a go. The drive from Madison was pleasant and it's just far enough away that it feels like a destination. The bar area has a great down-home WI feel and the bartender let us transfer our tab to the table, which is a nice touch.

The food was fine, nothing too special. I'm a hard-core fish fry fanatic and I give this place a solid C. I'd try it again during the colder winter months. I like the idea of being snugged up to the bar with an Old Fashioned watching the snow come down.

Thanks for the review!

Marsha K on Hazelnut Cafe

Finally got out to Hazelnut this morning. We were greeted warmly but then left confused as we were told to help ourselves to coffee but then given mugs. My Love proclaimed the coffee "better than some, not great." My Assam Gold tea was as expected. The two gentlemen working there (I presume one was the owner) were very friendly. I had one of the eggs(scrambled and cooked perfectly, as if they'd asked how I like them, but no one had)/bacon(overcooked for my personal taste, but delicious underneath it all)/side (croissant to rival those I've had in France) breakfasts. The eggs were steaming hot, which is a huge plus in my book. He Himself had the cranberry something French toast, which was terrific but overpriced as it came with . . . nothing. I know it doesn't sound like it, really, but we liked the place and will go back. BUT! They need to give the entire place a serious scrubbing; we had to clean the table we wanted to sit at and then, during the hour+ we were there, no one did a lick of cleaning until a lady came in with a delivery of fresh basil and proceeded to clean all the tables before she sat down at one. There were numerous rags visible on the floor in the kitchen, there was junk everywhere in the cute outdoor seating area (which prevented us from even attempting to enjoy it on a glorious morning, which was a shame), and the "back bar" in the dining area was a jumbled, confusing mess of bakery items, beverage accoutrement, and check-out space. My husband said that it was a good thing I didn't use the ladies' room if it was a dirty as the men's, which was dirtier than the whole place. He got that right.

Definitely my favorite "In a Word" yet. Thanks for the laugh!

catwoman on Sir Hobo's

This place is open again. Stopped by there this weekend with a friend because the Market Street Diner was too packed. We both had eggs benedict. It was nothing to write home about, but it was perfectly fine. As in, I'd go back if a friend wanted to go. It could be that breakfast is the thing to get here...

M on Benvenuto's

My whole family loves this place, especially since the menu really has something for everyone. The penne classico is the only thing I ever order because it's always perfect. Honestly, I've had it too many times to count, and there's never been a fail. It also reheats just wonderfully. I'm heartened to see that someone else likes it! This is one of our few go-to places for family celebrations, including my daughter's recent graduation from UW-Madison.
