mix bowl is only tolerable because they deliver until 2 a.m.
but unless you have straight up cash, forget about ordering from them. even when their website says in capitol letters that they accept debit cards, its an absolute lie just because they're too cheap to bother with the fees. Mix Bowl doesn't realize how much money they would make if they actually accepted debit cards like their sites says they do, not to mention credit cards.
and if you're starving to death after staying up late, don't expect your food to arrive anytime soon. usually it takes them over an hour to show up with your food. this would be somewhat okay i guess if they actually delivered to your door, but they cant even do that. they call once they're outside and make you walk out to get it.
and maybe all of this would be understandable if the food was great, but it just isnt.
mix bowl is a complete waste of time, unless it just so happens to be 1 a.m and theres no place else around that's been open past 10pm.
Mix bowl really needs to step their game up.
I searched for restaurants that deliver in the area and Mix Bowl Cafe was the only one that was close to campus AND had a website with their menu. Everything was looking great until it came time to place my order. They do not deliver everywhere which is very disappointing. My campus is less than a mile away. If you asked me, thats bad business. A college campus is a gold mine! College students are always looking for some good food that is fast and convenient. And the two women I spoke to on the phone were very rude. So even though I did not get to taste the food, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this place if you are looking to have them deliver.
My very favorite neighborhood Thai restaurant. Do not be fooled by the former drive-through architecture. This place is very popular with the local people, and it rocks late at night!
Extensive menu includes amazingly tasty roast duck, pineapple rice, and the best pad thai. Inspect the fish in the salt water reef while your food is prepared--no steam table leftovers here!
good food good prices and a very good alternative to some nasty jack or dennys at 1 or 2 am the only thing is sometimes i have trouble communicating with the staff but i just point at the menu and they have never messed up my order
Sooo at 12:10a i called them and ordered some soup and fried rice. After an hour and fifteen mins I get frustrated and called them, asking where the order was. They proclaimed it was on it's way (only a 5-10 min drive away... but i don't have a car so no pick-up for me). Well, another 15 mins (about 145a at this point) go by and I call them back. At this point, they're saying the driver is already here--outside somewhere. So I go outside thinking maybe his phone doesn't have service or something odd of that manner.... no sign of him. Come back inside after waiting for 10 mins and call them back at about 155a..... no answer, i'm assuming they're closed at this point. So, I essentially wasted two hours of my life waiting for mediocre food that never arrived. Next time, i'll order pizza. Moral of the story: 1) food is mediocre, not outstanding. 2) prices are normal (5.95 for soup, 6.xx for a place of rice), and 3) their delivery usually takes at least an hour (i ordered several times before)... that's if they even show up... if you have a car, go get Pho from Pho Ha or Pho Century instead. Sorry, had to rant.
