I tried that "Lisa's" out on Erie Blvd. a few times and I have to say that the food sucks. If the cooking was half as nice as the owner, it would be a wonderful place to eat, but sadly, the food is terrible.
The macaroni and cheese had NO taste. It was very strange, I had to eat something else to make sure there was nothing wrong with me! I was eating the mac and cheese and I swear you couldn't taste anything. STRANGE.
The mashed potatoes that they make? They are completely disgusting. I don't understand how you can make them wrong, but they figured it out. They were sticky and gross. It's a small enough place that they could make home made food the proper way.
The sloppy joes suck too...
But once again, the owner is very nice and she works very hard. Hopefully they start taste testing the food before selling it, but I won't be eating there anymore, to many terrible meals, and no more chances for them.
The village restaurant has decent food. The breakfast is great. The meatloaf sandwich at lunch time sucks though... they must not make it fresh. The staff are friendly, the people that linger in there are creepy as hell. To bad they can't just go in there, sit and eat, and get out. They stretch out a cup of coffee for an hour.
Gino's is ok. They have had some local dirtbags as waitresses though. For that reason, I never ate inside. Lilly was cute, but I heard they fired her..
Mercato's ... never ate there.. I will have to check it out.
