I've eaten at Applebee's and Delmonico's. I've had great meals, great service and bad meals and bad service at both places over the years. But I have to say, the absolute worst place I've ever been to in this area was Joey's Italian Restaurant. The one on Mohawk Street, not Pelliteri Joe's. The service was horrible...the salads were frozen and the main courses both seemed like they were sitting in the back all day and were just popped into the microwave. The only thing that was good were the drinks and the bread. It was so bad that I've never considered giving it another chance.
So gross....Joey's used to be really good until the owner sold it...that was probably about 10yrs ago I think

I had take out from Bella Mia and it was the worst food I ever had.

Also Casa To Much - the absolute worst microwaved food.

El Canino (?spelling) buffet the food was cold and gross. The hot sauce was from the $1 Store!
no thanks

Bella Mia without a doubt. Gave it 3 shots. Never going back. It's unsanitary,dust covered pictures and greenery all over the place.Cheesy and gross. Your meal takes forever to come out and the owners are rude. Too many other nice mom and pop places to chose from. The only reason people go there is for the large portions. I'd rather have good service, friendly owners.

Delmonicos,,,unless you buy the most expensive steak meal, the steaks have veins all through them to gag on. And that birthday song every 4 minutes is even worse than the veins in the steak, so loud you have to stop talking at your table til its done, and then it starts right back up again...it's torture. Make sure you wear earplugs...well, I suppose you can always txt the people at your table.

To bad Romeos went out. huge portions, delicious,but maybe it's not so good to locate a restaurant next to Aspen Dental...who wants to think of dentifrice, plaque, and gingivitis before and after a meal. Of course it reminds your to floss be generally it's not a positive.

By far - Creekside Cafe - spoiled macaroni salad - soured on one occasion, hair in my omelette and an egg shell and on the same visit creamer was bad and coffee had white chunks floating - was done eating and never got another cup of coffee and it was still on the bill - aweful - glad they asked how my food was - poor service too - staff too busy talking to each other and watching TV. Never go there again.

Try Minar Indian Cuisine

I've eaten Indian & Thai foods for years at restaurants throughout the country and even cook my own curries, so I am well experienced with these types of foods. Minar is a small restaurant with a simple buffet that includes several favorite curry dishes, tandoori chicken, and naan bread. In addition, they offer a couple of vegetarian dishes, a salad bar, a soup of the day, and a rice pudding dessert. Although I found the foods to be lacking in the native heated spice I usually prefer; each dish was carefully and well prepared using the freshest of ingredients in meats, potatoes, and vegetables. The spices used were all mild, but possessed great flavor and made for a very enjoyable meal. The buffet is served daily from 11:30am - 2:30pm (12pm - 3pm Sundays) for $8.95 and is well worth the modest price. They also serve a dinner buffet Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 5pm - 9pm for $11.95, as well as their regular menu at all times. So, if you enjoy Indian cuisine and various curries, but prefer the more mild versions, the buffet is sure to please. For spicier versions, of course you're free to order off the menu.

Casa, sad to say. Back in the day it was great-not really mexican but tasty tex mex. Tired it a couple times over the past year- horrible. Food was cold, and the booth nearest the hostess area smelled like stale urine. I miss Asteroga House in Little Falls.

Applebees any location by far has the worst service and food. Takes forever to get food, the food never comes out as expected. The food isn't fresh, its probably the same stuff you can get from your grocers freezer. If I didn't have so many random holiday gift cards for Applebee's then I wouldn't even go.
