I have bought a couch and a big screen TV from Sam's Furniture and they have always been so helpful and friendly. They are not pushy either or into high pressure sales. And after I get my payments paid off, they always send me a nice thank you card with a scratch lottery ticket in it. I don't know of any other company that does that! We will be going back to Sam's soon to buy a front-load washer and dryer and I know I can depend on them to have the best price, the best quality and the best customer service. Thanks!

This is the best Mexican food I have had since moving up to Fort Worth from the Rio Grande Valley. Very, very good. Place is small though and they only take cash. But you know it's the best because there is always a line out the door and pretty much only Spanish is spoken in the restaurant. Only open Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until they run out food.

I took my two dogs in last week--one for shots and the other to be neutered and both to be microchipped. I had gone to this clinic because it was part of the Pet Assure program in which veterinarians give clients a 25% discount. The clinic did not want to honor this program but finally did give me a15% discount. What really floored me though was my bill! It was over $500. I was floored. It was my fault for not asking upfront how much they charged to neuter a dog that had both testicles descended but I never expected that it would be $225. And after writing a check for such a large amount of money, I never saw the doctor even once. He never came out to introduce himself nor to tell me about how my dog handled the surgery, etc. You would think when you write such a large check that he would at least come out and shake your hand. I'll be looking for another vet now.

There's no better place in the Texas Panhandle to get your nails and feet done than at OP Nails. Tu and Sonny are the best at what they do. Nails are always perfect and they pay attention to detail. Katy was always my favorite for doing my pedicures. She's a very talented artist and does fabulous designs on your toe nails. Now that I've moved to Fort Worth, I just wish I could find a nail salon as great as theirs.

Our first experience here wasn't good but since then ownership has changed and they are making a real effort to bring back the City Hall that we all once loved. Their wine list is sparse right now as they update the menu and restaurant but the food is much much better. The wait staff is wonderful and very attentive to your needs and wants. And the managers want your opinion on how they can improve your City Hall experience. The prices have also been lowered on the menu. This place is worth giving a second chance. Head back and give them another try.

I made an appointment for 6:15 pm to have my solar nails filled. Although the place says it doesn't close until 7:30 p.m., the employees seemed put out that I was there and the woman who ended up doing my nails seemed angry that she had to do them. There were two other customers there with men doing their nails. I noticed each of these customers had glasses with wine in them and there were little hooks for their purses to keep them off the ground. The woman doing my nails never bothered to even ask my name much less if I wanted a glass of wine or if I would like to get my purse off the floor. By the time she finished my nails at 7 p.m., 30 minutes before closing, they were packing up and shutting off the lights. I felt rushed and like it was a nuisance I was even there. I chose this place because it is close to my new home, looked clean and sanitary, and appeared to have upscale customers. However, I'm not sure I'll go back. My nails look good but they are too thick and not as thin as I like. You would think for the price I was charged, I would be treated better than I was.
