Sushi Hachi!

Sophia says: Tonight for dinner my mom, my brother and I went to Hachi. They opened a few weeks ago and this was still their grand opening. This restaurant serves Japanese food. When we got to Hachi, we were the only people there. I ordered the salmon terryaki bento box. There is no kids menu. Our food took a while to come, but when we got it the bento box was huge! The salmon was really tender, but pretty good. Also, miso soup came with our bento boxes. Our waiter was nice, and she filled our waters when ever they were getting low. The bathroom was pretty clean. During the end of dinner, I tasted my brother's chicken, and it was all spongy. But overall, it was a nice restaurant.

Josh says:  Tonight we went to Sushi Hachi. I ordered chicken terryaki.  My food was good. Our waitress was nice and the bathroom was clean. I thought the sushi was the best part. I had california rolls which has seaweed, avocado and crab. It was delicious. I had good time.  We said bye to our waitress and went home. 

Jodie says: We were driving by and saw the "grand opening" sign the other day and decided to check it out. The restaurant is very small and set up nicely.  At first, we were the only ones there and finally, some other people came in.  I ordered the salmon and avocado roll. I thought everything was just okay and my food was very mediocre. The kids liked their dinner a lot better.  They have a pretty extensive menu with many specialty rolls and house special tapas.  If we ever go back I would try something completely different.

Blue Line Pizza!

Sophia says: Tonight we went to Blue Line Pizza for dinner. We have been there once before when it first opened and everything went wrong. The first time, they didn't tell us where the kid's menu was (its on the back of the doodle pad that they give you) and also they charged us for something that they forgot to bring. We decided to try again a few weeks later.  This time it really improved! First of all, our hostess mentioned to us and everyone else with kids where the kids menu was. Our waiter was really nice and when I ordered a pineapple juice, he served it me in a fancy glass. I ordered chicken in a blanket that comes with potato chips and carrots and ranch dressing. A chicken in a blanket is where they wrap dough around chicken and cheese. It was delicious! We sat outside and there was a festival going on with old fashioned cars. I would recommend Blue Line Pizza for people looking for great food and great service!

the battle car!

Josh says: Hi Readers! Tonight we went to dinner at Blue Line Pizza! When we got there, our waiter came right too us in less than a second. We got to sit outside and the street was closed for a car show. The glasses were really fancy and we got just what we wanted super fast. I ordered chicken in a blanket and carrots and potato chips. It was amazing because it tasted really good. The service was really nice and our waiter checked on us a lot. After dinner we ran into one of my friends who was there with his dad. We got to look at the cars and the cars were very big, mostly the battle car. One of the wheels was as tall as me! I wanted to climb in but I couldn't. I would love to come back! 

Jodie says: The first time we went to Blue Line Pizza it had just opened and the food and service were not so great.  We decided to wait few weeks and try again. The weather was nice enough to sit outside and tons of people were walking around checking out the car show. I ordered the blue cheese salad and it was so good, I ate everything!   Our waiter was really friendly and even though he had a lot of tables, he checked on us numerous times. Afterwards, we got to listen to live music and look at the cool cars. It was the perfect end to a wonderful evening.
