H/T +The Verge, this article in The Atlantic is a great piece of pure journalism, and I hope spawns many followups of the paths the author didn't choose to go down.

New rack in, AV ready to be wired. Just waiting on a UPS or two, a few HDMI cables and I have to find the rack mount kit for my switch to finish the infrastructure work.

Next on the list, new DVR/home automation server to replace the old 1850, and prepping remote locks and notifications.

This is where I go when I want good tex-mex on the cheap. Complimentary chips and salsa are both freshly-made and great, drinks are huge and refilled often - often with the current glass still 1/3 full. The food quality is excellent - cheese doesn't make oily pools, meats are not overcooked or too fatty, tortillas are obviously fresh and authentic (no Mission "flakiness" here). Been here many times, had the chili dip, queso dip, various quesadillas, burros, tamales, and pretty much everything on the menu, haven't been disappointed once. While I haven't had it myself, coworkers seem to love the tostada. My go-to is the seafood quesadilla or the chicken burros. Staff is usually very attentive - had a couple duds, but nothing bad enough to ruin my good time there. This is one of three places I take people when they visit, and this is usually the one that they ask to go to the most when they come back the next time.

Quality food, fun atmosphere, definitely a spot for locals. Was initially turned off by the look of the place outside, took a few years in town and my normal restaurant (Blackthorne) closing to try this place out, despite good reviews from coworkers. Walked into a bar area, kind of dive-ish looking, at first. Whole place is dark, and older, but you can tell it's well taken care of. Tables were free of pockmarks and stains, nothing had dust, everything is obviously looked after regularly. Ordered honey garlic wings (specials menu), was served an RC Cola (a plus in my book), and found the menu to be basic, but hitting all the good points. I ordered the grilled pork chop, which was spendy, and she ordered the open face turkey sandwich (specials menu), which was cheap. Wings came promptly, were freshly fried, and the honey garlic sauce was good, if a little heavy on the honey - felt like it needed a kick of something to offset. Food took a bit, my guess is because of my chop more than anything else, as the folks around us got their dinners in that span. Chop came, was a good 1.25" thick, bone was prepped well - and it was cooked perfectly, not overcooked as most places do when faced with a large chunk of pork. She reported that her turkey was tender, gravy was good, mashed were fresh. Could have used a vegetable to go along with the meals, as none was provided, but other than that the food was very good. Our server (Shannon, IIRC) was nice, had good recommendations and information, and was very attentive, without being overbearing. The table next to us was visited by the chef and two servers (one with samples!) when he had some questions about the menu options. Overall, this is somewhere I'll definitely be back to, with others in tow. I wish I had tried it sooner, as it makes the loss of Blackthorne much easier to bear.

In a town with at least a dozen pizza spots, I'm not sure how this place is in business. The pizza is mediocre at best - chewy crust, oily cheese, too much tasteless sauce. Was the first place I saw when I moved to Boonton, didn't feel like going up the hill or onto Main, so went here. After 4 bad pies in a row (including a BBQ chicken that was all sauce to the point of being soup) I tried the rest over a few weeks and found that literally every other place in town was better. I won't divulge my current go-to as that would be wrong to put in a review, but with the amount of options within the few miles that Boonton is, try them all and find your own favorite, instead of wasting your money here.

Been there three times so far, all in the past three months. Each time had a wait of around ten minutes, and the restaurant was probably 2/3 full. Their hibachi touches the key parts of the show, but lacking in details that make the show an attraction in itself. Service in general is lacking depending on the server you get - I've had one nonexistent waiter and two stellar ones. Their hibachi food is very good. Everything but the rice was very garlicky and slightly sweet, if a little heavy on the soy for the fried rice (at least for my taste). Full-plate portions, more than enough to take home for lunch the next day. Both steaks I've gotten have been overcooked by a point, so if you like medium say med-rare and so on. The decor is mostly traditional Japanese, and great looking. They do have one wall of the Hibachi room covered in letters that would make one think they were hosting children's birthday parties on the side, and it's a distracting from the tone of the rest of the room. The biggest drawback to their facilities is that their floor is constantly slick from the cooking. You can take your chair and slide it around without even trying. Side note: If you don't like garlic, they will accommodate you, but they don't make up for the lack of garlic with anything else so be prepared for blander food than everyone else.

Best bagels in the area, by a good amount. They keep a good selection, and they use quality deli meats for lunch. Weekend mornings get crowded, be warned, and the shop is not nearly big enough to hold the rush. Gals behind the counter are nice, clean, and efficient every time I've been in. The only thing I wish they had was better AC during summer months. Saturday morning bagel runs in July - when there's 50 people in the place and it's 90 with 100% humidity - it gets unbearable quick.

While not a regular customer that comes to sit and eat, we do eat from here probably once a month or so ever since we moved to Boonton about two years ago. We usually pick up the fajitas and chips and salsa to go. Their food is excellent. Well cooked, flavorful, tender meats. Fresh-made chips and salsa (I'd rate the salsa a medium for hotness), fresh tortillas. Each portion you'd think is a little spendy just from the price, but each is really two meals so you're not losing value. The only time I've gotten a burrito as good is from a taco truck in San Diego. Flavor-wise, a good comparison is Jose Tejas, but Willie's is of vastly better quality and finish for a premium. Why are you still reading this review? If you want great tex-mex, go here, now. You'll never want to eat Moe's or Baja Fresh again.

Basic run-of-the-mill americanized Chinese fare. That being said, I've never had anything that was under/over-cooked, or of poor quality or cut. Consistently good Chinese, at a good price, with a nice staff that remembers your normal orders and turns out quality food on a consistent basis. I've only had one problem there, with a missed ingredient request (out of >50 visits) - a quick call and they had it fixed and ready for when I got there.
