I've lived in East Troy for many years, and to see what this store has become is amazing. The meat dept has the best meat that can be bought in this area, with reasonable prices. The deli has the best lunch choices in town, with so many different things to choose from. The produce has a great section of ready made fruit cups and cut veggies, which sure saves the time at home. The store always looks clean, and the employees are always friendly and helpful. Since becoming Piggly Wiggly, the prices have even gotten better too. I have shopped in many of the different stores in the area, but this one is certainly my favorite.
The store has definitely improved since the change from Mielke's Sentry. The owners have taken time to make improvements to the store and we like what we see. There is a better selection of breads & produce. The meat department has a great range of products and the Certified Angus Beef is really good (especially on the grill)! The staff at Frank's are always friendly and eager to help. If we needed something, we know we could ask and the staff are more than willing to help.'
I don't think that Frank's isn't gettting a fair rep from the other posts. My family and I shop at Frank's every week and, since the change from County Market to Piggly Wiggly, we haven't seen any drop off in quality. In fact there has been an improvement in some areas!There is a better selection of breads & produce. The meat department has a great range of products and the Certified Angus Beef is really good (especially on the grill)! The staff at Frank's are always friendly and eager to help. I've been in other stores where the staff practically ignore you! I work in the retail trade too and my biggest problem is out-of-stocks from my suppliers; as a customer this still sucks but there is usually a decent alternative. Frank's is not a "big" Chicago or Milwaukee store but it does a great job. If we needed something, we know we could ask and the staff are more than willing to help.
One star is too many, but I felt compelled to rate this restaurant to warn others. We were in here about 3-4 weeks ago. I ordered the special, a chicken teriyaki with rice, it was so-so. My husband got the hot roast beef sandwich which he ate some of, but couldn't finish it. The waitress was OK, but the food and atmosphere are "yuck". My husband actually ended up getting sick from the food. We we definitely not go back.
Cracker Barrel's food is generally quite good and has that home cooked taste. We've had very good waitresses there who are attentive and come back as often as they should to check on you. Nothing to complain about here.
I run a maintenance crew in a local manufacturing facility. We have used RC Portable for numerous projects including brackets welded to roof trusses, custom racking, to machine repair. Bob once saved us hundreds of dollars and days worth of down time by repairing a titanium pump impeller which stopped an entire production line. He met me at his shop, repaired the part, and had me on my way in 30 minutes. Excellent customer service, professional results, and honest pricing makes me continue to recommend RC Portable to friends, family and coworkers for any welding or fabrication job.
I would not recommend this limo company to anyone! I chose J & J for my friends Bachelorette party because she had booked them for her wedding and thought a test run would be nice. I hope they give her deposit back so she can book somewhere else. I booked the 14 passenger limo for 6 hours. 20 minutes before it arrived I was called and informed that the limo was in the shop all week because a driver had side-swiped one of those concrete blocks at a gas station and that the shop couldn't get to it so the left side was all scratched and dented, but everything else on the limo was in good condition. Being the nice person I am I told her that was okay, besides what was I supposed to do we were leaving in 20 minutes? So the limo arrives and at first glances appears to be fine. until we get in and the radio doesn't work! The driver said his last clients were unable to get it to work as well. As we drive to the first bar we also realize that the lighting doesn't work (only half lit up), the partition does not work, the sunroof does not work, there is left over beer cans in the garbage from the last ride. There is a crack in the windshield, the check engine light is on, the battery light is on, and the brakes sound horrible.When I called to complain I was met with hostility and a lot of poor excuses and claims of being unaware. I asked for a discount and am still currently getting the run around from the wife who keeps "forgetting to talk to her husband". Very unsatisfied! I wouldn't even give them a star but I had to in order to post this review!
Thank you so much for the beautiful decorating at our business networking night. Your staff went above and beyond even helping the other vendors pull things together so that our event went smoothly. The bar service was very nice and well staffed also. Sherri Stumpf, Blackhawk Community Credit Union
I have yet to try the food..but the reason for the neutral/3 star review is that I was sitting in the parking lot eating my Culver's flavor of the day, and noticed this "Chubba Bubba's" right in front of me. I had no idea what it was. Nothing in the window saying it was a pizza place or even a restaurant. Not even an "Open" sign that I could see. I finally saw movement in the place, but didn't know if they were construction workers or ? Then I saw a mushroom farm truck pull up. The guy walked right into the place with his delivery..so at that point it was obvious the place was at least food related(I assumed they were legal mushrooms ;-) ) and open. Now that I see what the place is that is at least a good sign- fresh mushrooms.
Maybe there was a sign on the roof like the one I see in pictures(Beloit location?), but I think I would have seen it(I'll look next time I'm in the area). Regardless, anyone watching even one episode of a show such as Restaurant Impossible should have the brains to realize you need to make the front of the place more inviting, and obvious as to what it is. Same goes for trying to find out what all they sell. No menu on the website or anywhere else that I can tell. Then if the reviews are accurate about customer service....
I see the place has been open for awhile..just by the dates of the reviews here. The only excuse for what I saw is if they had just opened up or are in the process of remodeling/redecorating or something.
My daughter and I both ordered the avenue steak which they where out of so we got the rib eye steak instead. $19.99. The steak was good but that's it. I believe we where suppose to get bread sticks to but never saw them. The salad was plain lettuce with 1 cherry tomato and 1 slice of cucumber. The waitress's where OK but when we where all most done she came up and said we should hurry because they where expecting a lot of people. I just checked the on line menu of another very popular place in town on Deer field drive and there 16 oz rib eye is $17.79. Never going back again.
I bought my sewing machine from them a few years ago and have since bought all my accessories with them. When it came time to have your standard tune-up done, I called to ask about timing, etc. I was told that I would need to leave my machine with them for 4-5 weeks. It could be quicker than that, but no one could say. When I told them that this was unacceptable, the woman from Jerry's laughed and said, "I know."
If I had known that this is what it would be like after buying the machine, I would never have done buisness with them. In hindsight, the machines piled up around the store should have been a clue. I would strongly urge folks to stay away from here. It's amazing to me that they manage to stay in business. They've lost my business - from now on I'm going elsewhere.
Highly impressed with this business and level of service he provides. Friendly and gets the job done, along with giving a couple tips on keeping your drains clear. It was at a great price (with a 90-day guarantee) I will be recommending this business to family and friends.
If you're considering making a trip to Frank's Piggly Wiggly in Elkhorn; safe both your time, money, and good nature and choose another grocery store instead. There is also a Sentry, or other grocery stores in both Delavan and Lake Geneva where, as a customer, your opinion will matter and be serviced appropriately.
At Franks Piggly Wiggly expect to be disappointed. Their selection of meat is hardly taken care of - and when asked if they would cut a ham my husband and I had just bought; I was ignored and told "they don't do that and I should buy something pre-sliced instead". Meanwhile, the meat cutting people are standing around talking...
If you want to shop at a place that values customer service, knowledgeable employees, and competent owners - please do not waste your time shopping at Franks.
I have lived in Elkhorn for the past 15 years, occasionally deciding to stop back into Frank's to give it another shot (because there is not much of a selection for grocery stores out here); assuming my experiences there were anomalies. I was wrong.
Just this morning I stopped in to grab some vegetables and they were browning and some packages had mold growing on the bottom part of the packaging. When I mentioned this to a produce manager - they did not remove the items from the shelves; and instead told me it would be taken care of (i'm assuming theyre just hoping someone else picks it up and unknowingly walks out with it).
I also noticed several times that they have no fresh seafood and their entire freezer section is unkept and rarely restocked.
You do not want to spend your time as a customer quality checking every item you grab because its impossible to trust the service and grocery items at Franks.
I hope this will compel you to shop elsewhere so you don't have as unfortunate experience here as my husband and I have had.
Thank you, MaryAnne
