Re: “Perfectly Pleasant

The first time I went I didn't realize that it closed at 2 for lunch either, but I arrived at 1:45, so I was seated and my lunch arrived promptly. The next time I made plans to be there by noon so I could relax and savor every bite. I'm sorry that the previous commenter expected to be served after closing. After all, stores lock their doors at closing and I doubt any of them would open again just for him/her to shop. Oh well, some people just assume that they are the exception to every rule. That being said, I highly recommend La Placita Cafe for lunch or dinner, and now that you know the hours, I promise you won't be disappointed. Everything I tried was absolutely delicious! Can't wait to go back . . .

Re: “Admirable Agustín

How experiences and opinions can differ! Have to give it one more try to fix a major problem on first visit.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I agree with "it's the truth" WOB is and will always be Wings Over Broadway. World of beer can "coin" whatever nickname they chose but it's always wise to chose one that's not already taken. Judging from the review and the comments I won't be trying it anytime soon.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I bought the same beer and pretzel for $20. The steep price matches the decor — a sports bar in the Dallas airport.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I've been to WOB a few times, but not for the beer. Friends of mine were supplying "live" music. Beer and food were incidental. Servi
ce on all occasions was okay. Bar seating is best.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

WOB is Wings Over Broadway. And it is excellent.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I agree that my only experience there was bad enough that I will not ever be back. Why go and drink overpriced beer in a horrible environment when there are so many better options in the downtown area.

WOB is soon to be old news and defunct.

Re: “H2O Snobbery

Well, I suppose that's one way to look at it. I have to agree with most of your content, though. Water is a fantastically underrated substance. People don't need milk, juice or soda. There's water. Thiago | http://www.aquaexperts.com/technology.html

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I give every place two chances. Anyone can have a bad day. But won't be back to WOB. One beer I tried was flat. The food I tried was overpriced for what it was and the staff was not attentive at all. Which is odd for a place that needs people to try new stuff. The staff should be talking to the customers. And I sold better pretzels from a cart at Toros games long ago. They were $1.50, German style, with a swatch of mustard.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

One and done for us. Apart from the service, beware the surprise snifter, i.e. WOB doesn't like to confide beforehand just how much beer you'll actually get for your $7. There are just too many better options nearby, though perhaps none as glitzy.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I had a similar experience. Great beer, so-so food & lousy service.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

WOB is a rip-off. They sell a 22 oz. Lagunitas Hop Stupid for over $11. Plaza Liquors sells it for less than $5.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

I was unimpressed the one time I went there. I've had better times waiting at the old bus station than I did at WOB.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

We had the same experience sitting at the bar. The beer was great, when we could get a refill. The bartenders were more interested in chatting with each other than making eye contact with their patrons.
We are going back to the Shanty.

Re: “Beer and Bad Service

Why bother with this place when you have the Shanty? (from a Phoenician).

Re: “Très Bien

Ghini's is a gem! As with any restaurant with amazing food: patience is key, and it's worth the wait. If you want faster food, go to the Wendy's across the lot. I've never had issues with service. We do expect the food to take a while, but my dining companions and I are okay with that...that's what the wine is for :)
