“Hey! Good morning and Happy New Year! I just wanted to drop by and say a big thank you to Matthew, Dave (the owner), and the whole staff for being super friendly and welcoming last night when we came in for dinner and stayed a bit for the New Year's Eve glow party. The vibe in there was so cozy and inviting. We tried out the burnt end tips, brisket poutine, and smoked wings - and let me tell you, it was some of the best barbecue I've had since we moved here from South Carolina. I was totally expecting some sweet potato sides to satisfy my Southern cravings though! ☺️☺️“

“This was our first time dining at Longhorn Steakhouse in Surprise and loved the warm cozy atmosphere of the restaurant . The smells were heavenly as we entered and we weren’t disappointed from our hostess to our waiter Chris our service was Outstanding!!! Chris was friendly and professional and we were impressed with how attentive he was and observant as after our Delicious meal when he brought our check he looked at my husband and stated that he had given him a military discount before my husband had even asked if they do military discounts. Chris had noticed my husbands retired Air Force hat he had on and we were pleasantly surprised that he had already observed that he was retired military and had discounted out bill. Our experience was top of the line and we will definitely be regular customers to the Longhorn Steakhouse!“

“Never fresh made, always cold with unmelted cheese on the burgers... cashier doesn't listen to your order and when you ask about your fries the manager says you never ordered them...and you order a milkshake with a dollar off coupon and ask if you can order a large at full price if l could still get the dollar off the large shake he tells me he'll do it for me this time in a snotty voice but only this time... It looks like you need to retrain some of your employees... Other than that, I Love Culver's...?“

“I'm not going to use the word "amazing" like so many restaurant reviewers do, but our Easter lunch here was pretty good. The one who took it to another level though, was our server, Kyndra. What a sweetheart! The place was very busy and she seemed to be keeping up with all her tables just fine, and was very attentive and kind to us. Firebirds definitely has value in employees like her. The atmosphere inside is loud and a bit congested, with a good number of tables uncomfortably close to one another. We felt like we were sitting with other people in a place that isn't that big to begin with. Not to be helped, but it was on the cold side that day so there was plenty of drafts as both doors were constantly opening. As for the food, the Roasted Garlic Sirloin and Durango Burger were both grilled perfectly and had great flavor. The loaded potato was too loaded (believe it of not) with enough cheese for two potatoes. So much cheese is was barely melted. The Chicken Tortilla soup was very rich and flavorful. And in the end, Kyndra was so kind as to serve my birthday girl two small servings of their Creme Brulee Cheesecake that was pretty close to "amazing" as it beats anything Cheesecake Factory serves. May just stop in for dessert sometime. And lastly, just a shout out to Kyndra for completing our Easter Sunday lunch with a touch of class and style! Thanks so much!“

I will say, we had a little issue with ordering food through the app and had to go find someone to ask why it was taking so long? BUT, Austin really went above and beyond to make it right. He was so quick to do everything he could to make our experience great. He really is a gem of an employee and will be back because of his amazing customer service! Austin, thank you so much!“

“Yummmm! We love Biscuits. Have been here 6 times now and it gets better each time. We usually get the meat lovers scramble to share. It comes with a side of pancakes or 2 biscuits and that makes the portion HUGE. We always get a cinnamon roll; it is giant and gooey. This time we ordered the French Toast flight. AMAZING! It's big tho, which was perfect for our group of 4. We cut the 4 different flavors into quarters. Highly recommend. The o my negative about this place is the wait time on weekends. We waited exactly 45 minutes for our table. Yuck.“

“Came in tonight with some friends and sat on the patio which is huge. Had music playing and lights, right on street side of Bell Rd. Great atmosphere. Our server was busy with other tables and didn’t come back for a bit. Ordered the salmon entree and wasn’t completely satisfied with the taste as it was pretty bland in my opinion, but I stopped what I thought was a busser to ask for a manager and it turned out to be the General Manager. He was carrying a full tub of dishes at the time and immediately sat them down and spoke with us and was very friendly and understanding. I asked him why, as the general manager, was he out on the patio cleaning tables and he just smiled and said “We are a little under staffed today so I just do what I have to do”. It was my first time at State 48 and if it wasn’t for that interaction I might not have come back, but I will be back.“
