Oakley's Grille
Man Im so mad that this diner has escaped my culinary radar screen for this long! I have missed out on some really great food and meeting a really great staff. Had the burger this past Saturday along my wife and we had an order of fresh cut piping hot fries in an overfilled basket. All of it delicious! Met the owner Keith, a real genuinely nice guy. He spent a lot of the time making sure we were comfortable, well taken care of, and knew his philosophy and what Oakleys offered its customers. The Burger was simply amazing, hot juicy, stuffed with toppings and flavor. Fries were excellent and perfectly salted. I wasnt overly excited with the drinks offered, never a big fan of what I call "fake" tea, (Peak, Lipton, etc.) I love homemade southern sweet tea and at the level of food being presented here agt Oakleys it deserves better. So the food and experience was so good on Saturday I had to return with my wife and other family members and I had to try the Ribeye Philly Cheesesteak. It is easily the best cheesesteak I have ever experienced. We met the owners son Ryan, and Keith you can be very proud as he matched your level of service and communication with my family and other customers today. We are now going to be loyal frequent return customers and you are really missing the boat if you don't give Oakleys Grille a try. This is a platinum operation and taste for sure.Thank you Oakleys grille.

The Refinery
Just visited last weekend for the first time since they changed their menu and their scope from being a "farm to table" different menu every week restaurant to more of an Americana sort of predictable dining experience. And while I miss the funny adventurous menu, it's now the sort of place I can take people without worrying if they're going to order head cheese and not realize that that dish isn't actually cheese (google it...). Gone are the days of ordering something there only to either be very surprised (in one way or another) at your flavor experience. So: This time around everything was excellent and they actually had ketchup! The staff is cool, and it reminds me of a college town sort of restaurant except they seem to take it all very seriously even though it's become more of a burger and roast chicken place.Craft beer selection is good, wine selection my wife thinks is fun (I don't know anything about that) and overall I really enjoyed the new "Refinery" even if in many ways it's the same. Sitting upstairs on the patio in the nice weather at sunset is a bonus!

Thai Lanna & Sushi Bar
It's OK but ultimatly the food was bland,needs more seasoning and flavor.* A+ to F- Scale A+=Excellent,C=Standard,F- =RepulsiveMy opinion (Would not denigrate another person's hard work,food industry is hardest.), Quality: C-, ingredient's in Lana roll were little better than expected,curry puffs were low quality almost zero flavor. Salad was cheap iceberg lettuce with carrot shreddings,poorly matched peanut sauce,much more spices needed.Uniqueness: My first Thai restaurant.Convenience: C,Hours should be extended to 11:00 p.m.Service: C-, No utensils or napkins with my take away food.Difficult to understand servers elaborate menu options though they spoke English,I need to know what I am eating.Ambience: A,impressed well done.Presentation:B,I do enjoy eye appeal with my meal,makes food some how more pleasurable.Quantity: C,Plenty of menu options,sampler option would be popular, descriptions need to be present on all menu options and susinct. Price: D+, $4.50 for 1 standard 12oz bottle is not toleratable even if it is foreign beer.

Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting
Frank and Carlos were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and polite through the entire process beginning with the first time I walked in asking for an estimate all the way through until the car was painted and ready for pick up. The customer service here is impeccable and went way beyond my expectations. They got my car in quickly after giving me the lowest estimate around and they made arrangements to have my car ready earlier than I originally planned because of my needs. In addition, Frank arranged for me to have on-site window tinting done through one his vendors, he had the headlights restored, and the inside of the car was immaculate when I got it back. Not only did he follow through with what was agreed upon, he went beyond that and took such good care of me! The paint job is perfect, and I am so happy that I chose MAACO to fix the body of my car. I actually have arrangements to bring our other car in about a month, and Frank indicated he could help me arrange a rental car as well! Thank you, guys and Thank you, MAACO!

Kojak's House of Ribs
A good, non-chain southern BBQ place, but with more of a Kansas City style BBQ, very authentic, seems like it's been there for years. Quite often its packed but I've been able to walk right in, get a table and sit down to ribs in a matter of minutes. Service is great, all the staff seems like family or that they've been there a long time. Their BBQ sauce is also quite good. The chicken is great and cheap with two sides, the sausage is respective southern style and good, and the ribs can be either just good, or very good. On the other side: Pulled pork is bland. And the beef (may not be served anymore) was very dry and bland, I pretty much couldn't eat it and it's not recommended.Sides are simple and passable, the sort of stuff that you'd expect at a southern potluck, which I rather enjoyed. Desert, the Apple Cake with vanilla ice cream is excellent. So: Good for ribs and chicken, and sausage, sides are simple but good, but other items on the menu are passable at best. Why would you want something aside the ribs anyway?

Chili's Grill & Bar
This pertains to the Chili's on Bruce B Downs in New Tampa only. My family and I have been to this Chili's on many occasions in the past so on 6/2/13 we decided to drop in for an evening meal. It was raining on our arrival and they were not as busy as they usually are. We were seated promptly and were waiting for a server to take our drink order when 2 other couples were seated adjacent to our booth. After no response for about 15 minutes a server came out and took the order of the other table before ours. At that time my wife told the server we had been waiting almost 20 minutes and we were there before they were. His response was less than adequate at which time we did something we have never done in my 56 years of age. We promptly got up and left your establishment and went across to Friday's for our meal where the service was perfect. I gave 3 stars for past times. THIS ONE FAILED MISERABLY.

IMPEX G.A.E., Ltd
To all out there looking for Quality Repairs and above and beyond expectations! I had my Range Rover repaired at Impex and it was an exceptional repair. There was a lot of damage from the accident including air bags that exploded and my insurance agent assured me that my truck was at the right place. I was concerned about how complicated these trucks are since my Range had spent weeks at the dealer for mechanical problems, so I expected to have it out of service for a long time. To my surprise it was done in record time and they took care of everything. I was especially impressed by the fact that by just mentioning to Julio and Carlos that I had worn out windshield wiper blades, they surprised me by replacing them pro bono. A SUPER HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!! Posted by Jay Noord in Google

Ranch House Grill
My new favorite place to eat the last couple of months. Lived here since 2002 and never until recently set foot in here. The greeters definitely make you feel welcome. I often get seated with Debbie. She is awesome! Food is much better and better priced compared to the new Applebees that opened across the street a few months ago.To the veteran complaining above.....the discount isn't something you demand. It's a privately owned restaurant, not a big chain fast food joint. They have to make money. The active duty rule is fair. Don't be selfish. I'm a 6 year veteran. If I get a discount, great! If not, I'm not going to demand it, though! If you want a discount there's a BX on MacDill AFB. I'm sure you have an ID card, so use it!

Econo Auto Painting & Body Works
Outstanding service and value. I have seen some critical reviews of this shop, but I don't understand why. For $300 they painted my 2007 Volkswagen eos in 2 days. I could not be more pleased. T he car looks like new and they told me once I wax it in 2 weeks it will look even better. I shopped around and could have paid $2000 at other locations and I couldn't see how they could have done any better. The best price I was quoted at another location on was $800 at Marco. My paint matches perfectly and I can not locate any flaws. Do not hesitate to give t hem an opportunity. I will try t remember to cone back next year and comment on how I wears in the future.

Skipper's Smokehouse And Oyster Bar
Skipper's has definitely cleaned up a bit since I first moved to town, and has gotten some needed and deserved national attention. What you expect it to be from the outside is pretty accurate to what you're going to get inside. Most of the food is very good, but their tendency to offer Basa and other Chinese or asian imported fish, when we're sitting on Tampa Bay is extremely confusing and I hate to say it: a major turn off. The fried food here is good, and the oyster bar is a trip back in time. Concerts are often and many old guard blues and jam musicians have played through the place.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
