Re: “For Nearly Two Decades, Scooter's Dawg House Has Fed Hungry Lake County Beachgoers

Props to Mike for keeping Scooters just like Scott and Diane created it. Don't mess with what works, right?! Hard to believe a place so relatively simple can be considered an institution, but that's what I'd call it for anyone going to or from the beach. Hope for 2-plus more decades of dogs!

Re: “Hits and Misses at Quick-Serve Mofongo Latin Grill

"I get that the shop is quick-serve and server-free, but it would have been nice for a staffer to check to see how we were enjoying our meal" - Yes, just like when there's a problem with your food at McDonalds, you wait at your seat until someone comes and checks up on you. Counter serve = no service tip = you go up to the damn counter if you need something.

"I get that there's no server, but it would have been nice to have a server" is basically what you just said.

Re: “The Food Is Messy At Boiler 65, (and That's Good), But So Is The Service

"The quicker the table is bussed, the better for all concerned."

No thanks...not gonna kiss the table, not even if it smells and tastes like...fish...

I'm sure you meant "bused"...same spelling as school "busing"...

"Seafood-in-a-bag might be informal and entertaining, but it is not inexpensive."

Poor folks pay a fortune to be able to dine where they can feel rich.
Rich folks pay even more to be able to snarf down seafood like a bunch of trailer-trash slobs.

Ain't America grand?

THIS! EVERY TIME WE GO OUT. BIGGEST PET PEEVE AT A RESTAURANT.

"...and for the love of all that is holy, bus the damn table."

NEVER WALK AWAY EMPTY HANDED, FULL HANDS, IN AND OUT!!

Re: “Hits and Misses at Quick-Serve Mofongo Latin Grill

Who wrote this? Puerto Rican food is bland? Bland?
Why have this person review a Puerto Rican restaurant if he's going to write off an entire nation's cuisine?

It casts shade on the rest of the article when you spend the first two paragraphs whining about the ambiance. I loved Mofongo. As a Puerto Rican, it felt just like a lot of the smaller joints in Puerto Rico.

Everyone, MOFONGO IS AWESOME. It's serves up the best mofongo I've had in the States.
This article rivals some of the most pointless Yelp reviews I've read.

He's the worst writer we got in Cleveland. And that's not saying much! What a joke. Way to put zero effort into your writing.

Re: “Hits and Misses at Quick-Serve Mofongo Latin Grill

It's MOFONGO not "Mofungo" for Pete's sake! The proper spelling is in the name of the Restaurant! LOL!

Re: “Hits and Misses at Quick-Serve Mofongo Latin Grill

Puerto Rican food is NOT tame and bland. What a sweeping generalization. Yea, this restaurant experience may not have been the greatest, but not worth 'hate speeching' an entire culture's cuisine. Take your white, cracker ass back to the east side, Doug. Your work is laughable, at best

This has to be the worst article ever!!!! 117th Lorain is not the Lakewood/Cleveland border and who would say that PR food is tame and bland. Boy bye

Re: “Places to Go and Things to See On an Amish Country Road Trip

For an authentic cultural experience, take in a backroad tour with "A Taste of the Back roads". They visit a buggy shop, basket maker and another Amish home business. It's a 2 1/2 hour tour, interesting narration and beautiful 30 mile country side tour.

Re: “A Sandwich Shop from the Owner of Jack Flaps and a Quick-Serve Jamaican Joint Bolster the North Collinwood Food Scene

I've been going here for a while now and by far this is the best I've had in a long time! The curry is awesome and the jerk is totally incredible! I've tried another local Jamaican Restaurant and they don't even compare to this place! Omar, you Rock! Keep up the good work and you will have me as a customer for years too come!

Re: “Bakersfield Shows Cleveland Why it Shouldn't Settle When it Comes to Tacos

Just had late lunch at bt. Chicken and beef all dried out. Fish taco ok. Decent margs not overly sweet like on lee rd. Food service a bit slow. I liked how you could watch your bike through front window.

Re: “Jo Jo Carloni's Italian Restaurant Serves Up Red-sauce Comfort in Olmsted Falls, and Will Soon Do the Same in Ohio City

I think they mean you get bread and then you get to pick soup or salad? That's how most restaurants are. Sounds great!! Must try!!
