“Poor Morning Service -Chef”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

I've always have late dinners at Leann's Cafe with flavor stir fried udon (my favorite). I took my husband to Leann's for his very first visit, I ordered Udon stir fry with chicken & shrimp and pancake with coffee. My husband ordered ground stead. I told the waitress to bring the pancake first however, My stir fried was more of chow mein with less udon noodles, chicken meat was like a rock, it was hard it needed a hammer to soften to chew, baby shrimp came late after. It was like a joke place at the time during morning/lunch. My husband was not happy with my meal or the service. I won't be visiting Red Roof/Leann's Cafe no more.

I will be making my own stir fry udon. The chefs at Leann's/Red Roof Cafe need to trained their chefs to care and pay attention to their customer's orders. Train them to cook food with the heart.

GOOD BYE LEANN'S CAFE/RED ROOF

“Good quick breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Since I work in the area my coworkers and I go in there often . Good , fast , reasonable priced food . If you are looking for a breakfast meal that's more then eggs and bacon and some Asian dishes ...this is not for you for breakfast . Never eaton there for lunch or dinner

“Not thrilled....”

I find their food very plain and boring. It has very little flavor. The best I can say is it's edible.

If only the service could have been faster??? Wait staff were prompt but kitchen didn't seem staffed appropriately to turn out food quickly.
