BYE BYE TOYOTA!!!!
Lifetime very loyal Toyota customer here...... not anymore.
I have been a Toyota guy most of my adult life, until my latest dealing with Tempe Toyota.
1982 Celica GT (used)
1984 Celica GT (used)
1985 Celica GT (used)
1996 Supra Turbo (used)
1996 Tacoma (used)
2001 Tacoma Prerunner (new)
2004 Tacoma Prerunner + TRD Supercharger (new)
2007 FJ Cruiser 4x4 (new)
2008 FJ Cruiser 4x4 (used) + TRD Supercharger (new by Tempe Toyota)
2010 Tacoma Prerunner (new)
2015 Scion xB (new)
I will never spend another dollar with Toyota due to the latest service deal.
3 years ago, Tempe Toyota installed a TRD Supercharger in my 2008 FJ Cruiser....
Lately, it was running weird so I took it to them to check out.. They talked me into spending $361 on a Mass Air Flow Sensor that I suspected was not bad....... Did not fix the problem, so now I'm out $361 plus a $48 rental for nothing.
Upon further review, the flash program that was supposedly installed by Tempe Toyota during the supercharger installation, the "400 program", that is to compensate for the extra airflow for the Supercharger, is not in the computer as it should be and the computer will not accept the installation of the "400 program".
FYI, the computer will hold one program and one program only at a time and it must be manually installed by Toyota, with their proprietary computer......
So either the "400 program" did not get flashed in 3 years ago, or they flashed it out during their troubleshooting recently. Those are the only 2 options, Tempe Toyota are the only people to touch the OBD connector on this vehicle in the last 3 years since it was installed.
So, the original stock "200 program" somehow "miracled" itself back into my vehicle. And now they are refusing to make the issue right. They even went to the area Toyota rep, he said no help.
The fix is around $1,200 to $1,300. Money I do not have after having bought a brand new Scion (Toyota) a couple of weeks ago, stupid me.
So loyalty to a dealer and $ six figures of loyalty over the years to Toyota is worth nothing to them.
Don't kid yourself, I now know that you and I are also nothing to Toyota.
This is the deep truth: They are calling me a liar, saying that I took my vehicle and had a performance tune done on it, I have not. Disheartening, to be called a liar by people that I have spent well over $100,000 with. Just.... wow....
Toyota and Big Two Toyota have decided to not make this right, I have decided to sell my FJ and my brand new Scion xB and switch manufacturers. I have done the math, I have spent nearly $1,000 per month on vehicles and other purchases with Toyota for the last 15 years.
TOYOTA HAS LOST A LIFETIME LOYAL CUSTOMER.
The place is clean and the lady is very nice..... That's where the positives end....
I had the half rack of ribs, with coleslaw and potato salad.
This is not BBQ, just meat cooked and drowned in sauce, no BBQ grill or smoking involved.....
I'm a bit of a rib snob, these were not good at all.......
At over $18 for the lunch, I expected really good and got well below average.
The flavor was not good, the Ribs were very fatty, but a fair portion of them...rated at 1 out of 5 stars.
The potato salad was more mashed potato than salad, I give it a 2 out of 5.
The coleslaw was ok, probably the best part of the meal, maybe a 3 out of 5.
The plasticware utensils were really cheap, disposable plate, no salt & pepper shakers on the table except the tiny packets (one each) in the baggy with the plasticware. If you are going to charge over $18 for a lunch..... FOR A LUNCH!!!!! .... at very least serve the lunch on a plate with silverware and have salt and pepper shakers on the table and have some better quality napkins for the "BBQ" sauce, I had to use 10 of the tiny cheapos......
I really hate wasting good money & time on a meal out and getting bland and subpar quality food.....
I seem to be on a run of bad lunches lately...... maybe time to start packing lunch for a while....
Yeah, I would not recommend this place for the "BBQ" or potato ..... whatever it was, salad/mash. Peppersauce Café is right across the street, has amazing service and food and for less money. I don't see this place staying in business long...
Yeah, they didn't credit my charge as promised, had to get the credit through the credit card company..... I am now done with this place.....Its now 830 pm, I ordered at 700 pm, I'm still hungry and now grumpy and its now too late to… En savoir plus
I went here based on the Yelp reviews....... I'm guessing I just got a bad meal, probably the exception, but this was case.....
I waited for 35 to 40 minutes on my food, that was tough for me, I work a lot of hours and every minute waiting at lunch is that much later I leave for home at night. Also, while waiting in the lobby, there were children there which is no big deal except that one of them in particular kept yelling and screaming at the top of his lungs in an echo chamber of a room, that alone will usually mean that I won't return.
So, I got a jumbo potato with pulled pork.
When I got it, it had a bit of a funny smell, but being a new place and a lot of items were on it, I thought nothing of it. Ate half of it for lunch, it was OK, not great, not bad.....But, I felt ill about an hour later and ended up pretty sick the rest of the evening. (out both ends, I know TMI)
The next day when I got to work I pulled the other half out of the fridge, opened the box and a RANCID stench came running out at full speed smacking me right in both nostrils... Nearly made me throw up again for the 6th or 7th time. I believe the pork was not just bad, but rotten. So, so nasty the next day.... good food will not smell rancid 24 hours later in the refrigerator.....
Miss D was a very nice lady and I do wish her the best, but there are times when I cannot give a place a second try, this is one of those times.
Based on the other reviews, you might want to try it out, I hope you have better luck than I did....
This place is hit and miss with quality and quantity. The steak bowl is what I usually get. The bowl is sometimes full and sometimes pretty scarce, leaving me hungry. :( The steak itself was mostly gristle and fat today, it is good meat about 1 out of 3 visits.
The staff has been hit and miss as well, one time friendly, the next time not so much or even rude.
I will be switching to chicken, but probably not going here a lot in the future.
First visit was pretty good.
Once you get past the look of the parking lot, it's all good.
I got the $10.99 lunch special, pulled pork with a bun, side of mac & cheese and a drink.
Not a bad deal and was filling!! Nice people, basic laid back atmosphere, but clean.
The bun was fresh, the pork tasted great and was cooked and was not fatty, mac & cheese was pretty good, came lots of black pepper in it :), soda was mixed well and tasted good, clean soda machine and amenities table.
I normally would never do a comparison, but since my disappointment at the nearest BBQ shop...............
Texas BBQ House is very good food at a fair price --VS-- The Barbecue Company (a mile away), is grossly overpriced and the food was not so good. (see my review).. I had the same basic meal at each location, the quality definitely goes to the Texas BBQ House, and at 2/3 of the price.........
This is my new go to lunch at my new job. Feeling blessed to have a great place so close...
Give this place a try for sure if you like good BBQ. The guys at the next table were going crazy over the brisket and sausage....
It was OK....
I got a pulled pork sandwich with one side, the SW mac & Cheese.... I paid a $3 upcharge for more meat... and got a drink, they have the digital soda machine with the flavorings, pretty nice.
Not so impressed to be honest... The pulled pork was both very tough and very very fatty, the bread was stale (tasted a week old, I looked for mold it was so bad) and the SW mac & cheese was not for me, tasted like an experiment a kid made with mac & cheese and some salsa... but hey, the soda was good.
I was really surprised when the total was just short of $17.50, with a tip, I'm out $20.... FOR LUNCH..... for a mediocre lunch at that.....
I won't be going back unless I'm a guest at someone else's expense. If the total were $10 out the door, I would have possibly given this place a second chance as every single meal can't be perfect. But certainly, no second tries at $20.
Honestly, McDonald's quarter pounder with cheese is much more appetizing...
I'm a two time war vet with plenty of military range time and tens of thousands of rounds down range, as well as dozens of firearm handling and tactical courses. Im very well trained and ultra safe, never a accidental discharge and love to teach people about firearm safety.... That being said, there is no pleasing the jerks that run this range...
Nazi douche bags run this place. They talk to people as if they think they are gods.
I can't imagine a worse staff in any environment, I'm sure there is a special place in hell for these arrogant condescending jerks.
Needless to say, one star is too many.
I got chastised for grabbing a target off of the top of my table as I walked out to set targets, ABSOLUTELY NO SAFETY ISSUE, however, some idiot fired his cannon 10 seconds after cease fire, hardly a word was said to him. So in my assessment, it's not about safety, it's about them being positional authority, get a life losers.
They scream and yell at people and have absolutely no respect for people.
The range retards suck all of the fun out of shooting, in the 2 hours that we were there, 8 people left early and in disgust of the staff, that's just on the west end of the shooting stalls....
Idiots run this place, I will never return.
They are surely compensating for shortfalls in their personal lives.
So they changed their noodles... bad call, the new ones are a bit tough....
Got a hair in my food 2 out of the last few visits...
I'm not sure but I think they are trying cost savings ideas with the food, the quality is definitely sliding....
I have cut my visits back quite a bit....Always good food for a fair price.
Place is clean and everybody is courteous.
The place is always… En savoir plus
