Los Cucos Mexican Cafe
This is a small chain from Texas and the food is good, if atypical, Southwestern style Mexican food. Los Cucos can't compete with Vegas local powerhouse Lindo Michoacan, but it still has pretty good eats and great service.The interior is strange, a rag-tag looking atmosphere in what is (obviously) a space formerly inhabited by MiMi's Cafe. The Mardi Gras balcony is still there, but now there's some sparse, randomly placed Mexican decor lining the walls. The restaurant feels spacious, open and clean, and there's a particularly nice open bar area right inside the front door. The place lacks character, but it's a pleasant enough atmosphere.I had to laugh at the menu because it's loaded with misspellings ("crispi" tacos, "romain" lettuce) and some of the descriptions are exactly the same for different items (check out the special fajitas on the menu). When I pointed this out to our server, she couldn't explain it nor tell me which item it was that was the correct description. I eventually got what I wanted, but the menu had the dish listed under two different names. You'd think for a chain restaurant, the menu would be consistent (and free of spelling errors).As with most Mexican eateries, the house serves complimentary chips and salsa. The chips were good enough but served cold; the salsas are DELICIOUS. Like seriously delicious. There's a spicy, smoky red salsa that's served warm and a fantastic avocado crema style cold salsa. Both of these were the highlight of my meal and I am still craving them (they'll make me return to the restaurant often).We ordered the queso with shrimp as an appetizer. At $11.95, it's overpriced. The cheese wasn't that warm when it was served and the queso was loaded with red onions, mushrooms and other unnecessary stuff. The shrimp was seasoned well and quite delicious; however, I wouldn't order this again.For lunch I ordered chicken fajitas and my husband ordered steak fajitas. The meat quality was top-notch. I LOVED the marinade on both of the meats, and we both agreed the meat was some of the best in town. The fajita vegetables were just okay -- onions and poblano peppers. I was disappointed in the overall fajitas, but I'd love to have just the meat served on its own. I had fajitas that came "loaded" with bacon and cheese, and it was an unusual and very tasty combo. The side plate was huge and had so/so beans, average rice, and very tasty guacamole and pico de gallo.Fatty alert: they serve homemade flour tortillas, and they are delicious! I love Mexican restaurants that care enough to make legit tortillas, and I'm happy that Los Cucos does it right. I could've eaten two dozen of them! It's a bummer that they aren't served in tortilla warmers to keep them soft but instead are plopped on the table sandwiched between paper towels. This means the tortillas get hard very quickly. Best to gobble them up as soon as possible!After our lunch, Jesus the manager came over to ask how we enjoyed everything. He was very eager to please and happy to listen to our suggestions. I was very impressed with this personal touch and the efficient, friendly service we received.This isn't the best Mexican food in Vegas, but the kitchen uses very high quality ingredients, the prices on most menu items are fair, and the service is good.

Kenny Craig P
You won't find a better Workman’s Comp and Personal Injury attorney than this!I was involved in an auto-pedestrian accident (I was the pedestrian) and Craig Kenny was referred to me. THANK GOD! This was both a Personal Injury and Workman’s Comp case. Where do I start? ALL of his staff is AMAZING! I worked with both Craig Kenny and Leon Symanski personally and the level of representation was beyond anything I could ever comprehend. I didn't have to worry about a thing. They offered to come to my house for my initial consultation. Free. I had a neurosurgeon that I didn't feel 100% comfortable with. To change doctors in a WC case can be difficult. They were able to change my doctors twice (per my request). Not only did they handle this, but they were concerned about the level of care I was receiving from my doctor and Leon Symanski PERSONALLY met me at my doctor’s appointment to ensure I was receiving the level of care he felt I was entitled to. What attorney does this? Seriously. Mr. Symanski did this again on one other occasion. I have had many problems with my Workman’s Comp case worker and my attorneys and their staff always handled any problems I had with him. This includes getting authorizations to have procedures done, calling to find out where my disability check was (and this would get corrected immediately), getting appointments approved and always kept the process moving. I never felt like an inconvenience, always a priority. I always received a call back the same day I called or when they would say they would call back. My case was approximately 2 ½ years in length (due to procedures and surgeries I needed). The settlement process was easy and I was very happy with the outcome. They always kept me informed and explained everything going on with my case in detail the entire time (and they were also kind enough to translate legal “lingo” into the English language). Mr. Kenny met with me personally on numerous occasions and ALWAYS made me feel like he truly personally cared about me. He answers his phone if he’s in the office (and available) and if I left a voicemail he ALWAYS called me back the SAME day. No joke! He is amazing! I couldn't ask for a better experience during such a trying time in my life. It was one of the most difficult times I have ever been through. Not only for me but also for my children. I felt like I had a second family at CPK & Associates who were always there to assist me with whatever I needed. What it comes down to is if you are in need of a Personal Injury and/or Workman’s Comp attorney and you want one that truly cares about YOU and your well-being, this is who you need to call. I even received a traffic ticket and it was handled in a jiffy. So I have had the pleasure of experiencing CPK's traffic services as well. What it comes down to is I promise you will be nothing but thankful you called here. I hope I won't need to go through another ordeal like this again, but if I do, this will ALWAYS been the man I call. THANK YOU Craig Kenny, Leon Symanski and all of your staff! You sincerely and truly changed my life!

Law Offices of Kenneth G Frizzell
I will write how Kenneth Frizzell helped me and a male veteran's soon to be ex wife from Thailand. 1st Eva's American veteran husband was divorcing her. He was pulling in after federal taxes: example: $8,596 a month with his USAF pension, City pension, VA medical pension, Social Secuirty. Eva was only going to get about example: $750.00 a month from her social Secuirty. George was going to stick her will all the bills. I bought her to Kenneth in 8/2013. Eva agreed to hired Kenneth as her divorce attorney. He had her signed a moral contract. The 1st part is what his guidelines will be as your attorney. The 2nd part is what your guidelines are as his client. In the contract he explains his fees are ala carte which for a certain amount he will do this. They both signed. Kenneth told Eva do not lived with your ex husband or talked to him while you are divorcing him which took only 60 days. Do not break the law and be honest with your attorney. The bills were split 50/50. Eva received her social Secuirty amount: whatever it truely is: plus a fair alimony from her ex husband after 27 years of marriage. When Kenneth moved from his old office to is new office, I was happy to find out some of his old office employees left his law firm. They were not nice, lied to the clients and were rude to a few female veterans. Business is business. I have no idea if it is in writing how much you will be charge for your case, how anyone can claimed they were rip off. All attorneys charge a basic fee. As the case goes on you will have to handle additional cost to your attorney. Most attorney are suppose to tell you in writing if there are additional costs. Ala carte is better one price you get this. If you need another issue this is the cost. Time is money so you are paying for their time. Civil/criminal cases can drag on for months & there are additional court cost as well. It is a signed contract. It is in writing how to behave while he is handling a court case which means do not get into trouble if you are going to court. That would impact your current case. Listen to your attorney becuz isn't that why you hired him to handle your case.? Let's be honest if you get a DUI in Nevada you will not always walked with a parking ticket. If an attorney can promise he can make it disappear, he will disappear with your money!! This is Nevada kinda consider "Good Old Boy State". If Kenneth tells you to go to traffic school for the DUI/traffic ticket. Go!! An attorney is a person you hired you help you out of a screw up but they are not fairies who have a magical wand to make it like it never happened.I was dealing with an ex boyfriend who is in law enforcement. Let's be honest. If a cop does not want an attorney to help you, it does not matter how much money you are willing to pay. Most attorneys will not give you the time of day. Kenneth told me I could go to court or he could write a letter of intent for a smaller fee. I hired him for the letter. I managed to get back from my ex boyfriend, items my foster mother left me.

A Fresh Start Law
I called around to several lawyers to get prices on how much a bankruptcy would cost me. A Fresh Start was one of the first places I called & attorney Dorothy Bunce candidly told me she did not have the cheapest price in town, so I kept calling until I found someone who gave me a really good price. Bit mistake! First off, the price I was quoted wasn’t the price I got after the attorney added in all the extras. Second, I got no face time with the attorney beyond the first 5 minutes of the "free consultation." Third, I had to practically do the bankruptcy myself - the paralegal gave me more than 20 pages of paperwork to fill out, and every time I had a question, I couldn’t ask the attorney for an answer, I had to ask the paralegal. Who knows if the advice she gave me was correct or not? Finally, at the courthouse, my attorney and the Fresh Start Attorney, Dorothy Bunce, sit next to each other. Dorothy is laughing and talking to the Judge and the court staff, while my attorney is playing games on his tablet. Dorothy’s cases get called first, and her clients have no problems. They leave the courtroom smiling and happy. My case gets called and the Judge tells my attorney that I have to come back because he hasn’t provided my pay stubs, bank records, and tax returns. My attorney blames me for not giving him these documents, which is a total lie! So I have to take off work again in two weeks and drop off another copy of my pay stubs, bank records, and tax returns to the paralegal. So I had to ask myself how much did I really save by using that cheap attorney? So I called A Fresh Start and asked Dorothy what her fees were. The price I was quoted included the court fees, the credit report, and the credit counseling, and Dorothy didn't try to hide what all the expenses involved were. The total amount she charged turned out to be less than what I paid my cheap attorney after having to pay for the cost of correcting all his mistakes. There might be some good cheap attorneys out there, but next time I need an attorney, I will look for one that doesn’t focus on providing cheap service.

Lindo Michoacan-West Flamingo
One of the three Lindo Michoacan locations in Las Vegas, this one can definitely hold its own. While not quite as good as its sister locations, this is the closest one to me so I eat here often. The signature stellar Lindo service is here (really, how do they always manage to give 5 star service no matter the time of day) and the food is delicious.I love the queso here, it's basically a big plate of REAL melty cheese baked with charred poblano peppers and served with Lindo's delicious homemade flour tortillas! I love the tortillas here and I frequently eat my weight in them (bye bye low carb diet). The complimentary chips, salsa and bean dip is always a hit too. The food here is just delicious. You can't go wrong with many of the dishes (although sometimes the chicken quality in some of the specialty dishes is a little bit rubbery and "off" -- don't know why, but it has happened a couple of times at this location). I've never had an issue with the chicken quality in the chicken fajitas or with any of the seafood or beef dishes. The guacamole is worth getting, and they have yummy Diet Pepsi and fresh brewed iced tea. Again, the focus is on quality and service.The prices are higher than your average Mexican restaurant but I think it's worth it. This location runs incredible lunch deals and specials during the week, and the kitchen is fast so it's the perfect spot for a quick workday lunch.The hostesses will automatically try to seat you in the bar section of the restaurant if you are a party of just adults. There's an extra special atmosphere in this area on weeknights when a dude in a sparkly red shirt plays a synthesizer and sings pop songs in broken English. It's pretty rad and it's not too loud, which is nice. If you are looking for a quieter experience, ask to be seated in the other part of the restaurant.Note that the parking lot here is deceptive and is often overflowing with cars. Even if it appears packed, do not be discouraged and assume there's a wait -- go in anyway. I've never had to wait here even on a very busy Saturday night.

The Halal Guys Las Vegas
I tried to lower my expectations due to the insane amount of hype about this place (albeit from the New York City original cart) but even after several visits, I have to admit that I'm just not a fan. The food just isn't very good.The beef is so salty that all I could taste was salt, salt and more salt. I guess that's what the sauces are for but I'm not a sauce / dressing fan. I guess I'm sort of a purist because I think if the food at its core is tasty, you shouldn't have to drown it in sauce to make it edible -- and that's what is going on here. Heed the warnings about that hot sauce; it is H-O-T and that is not a myth that's overblown. That mess will light your butt on fire!The sad pita bread was just gross. I'm a bread addict and even I didn't want to eat it. I'm not sure if it's made in-house, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not. There was nothing fluffy nor fresh nor appetizing about it. It was bad. The tomatoes, lettuce and cheese were just your run of the mill, straight off the food delivery truck quality.The ONLY good thing on my plate was the rice, and it is clearly the superstar. Flavorful, light and fluffy, it's worth eating (which is fortunate because it takes up the majority of the container)! This place is expensive and the portion size of the meat is too small for what it costs. I don't want to pay $10 for a lunch that consists mostly of cheap rice!The employees are very friendly, competent and willing to help, and the crunchy falafels are a tasty vegan option (serious vegans beware: the line workers aren't as careful as they should be about cross contamination; I saw one lady scooping meat and then falafels with the same utensil).Adding to the problem of the subpar food is the horrendous parking situation. There is quite literally NOWHERE to park. This place is located in a very busy Chinatown shopping mall so the spaces are almost always completely filled all day and all night, making this an inaccessible place to eat or to get takeout.

A Fresh Start Law
Last week I called Attorney Dorothy at A Fresh Start 5 times - 4 times she picked up the phone herself, and the 5th time she returned my call within a couple of hours. After meeting with her, I was sad to learn that she wasn't able to take my case, but she certainly gave me a lot of useful advice. Dorothy Bunce met me at 7 am on a Saturday morning since I work very long hours. I needed advice for my Dad, whose house has gone into foreclosure. I have never met with a lawyer for any reason before & was very surprised that Dorothy explained 4 different ways that Dad could save his house - and 3 of those ways did not involve hiring her! This attorney truly puts helping people before making money. We recently moved to Las Vegas after being driven out of our small hometown by the bank that foreclosed on our business. We filed bankruptcy with attorney Dorothy Bunce. Before Court, Dorothy described a gossipy conversation she had with the bank's lawyer, the one that had been so mean to us, saying how much heat the bank got because of how badly they treated us. Apparently our friends & neighbors raised quite a stink & complained loudly. Many even took their business elsewhere. At hearing this news, which that attorney never would have told us, my wife started sobbing with emotion at knowing how much people care for us. I can't think of another lawyer that would have broken down the bank's attorney like Dorothy did & gotten him to tell her this secret information. The fact that Dorothy understood how much it means to both of us to know that people do not despise us for having had a business failure & not paying our bills makes her a one in a million. Thank God we found her to take our case!

A Fresh Start Law
After losing my marriage and a job, I was drowning in debt. I had actually considered suicide. I know that sounds overly dramatic, but it's the truth. Finally getting up the nerve to seek legal advice, I saw two other attorneys in town. I left their offices hopeless and in tears. I then found Dorothy. My self esteem was already through the floor, but Dorothy made me feel that everything was not my fault. We discussed my situation and possible solutions over a cup of coffee at her office. I immediately felt like I was talking with a trusted old friend. She never made me feel bad or questioned how I got myself into such a financial pickle! And don't be fooled by her niceness - she knows what she's doing! She outlined everything that was going to happen with a Chapter 7. We discussed all the options available to my situation. I left her office with a folder containing not only all her contact information, but helpful articles, documents and timelines. After the process got rolling, she communicated everything with me, coaching me as to what paperwork was due now, what the next step would be, etc. When we finally got to the 341 meeting, I was prepared, calm and collected. How much is that worth? The whole process went through in about 4 months, smooth as silk, just as Dorothy said it would. And all this for one fixed price. I cannot give Dorothy enough praise or higher recommendations. Do yourself a favor. Hire this woman. You will not be disappointed. She literally saved my life.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.

Just a moment...
