Has anyone been to uWink in Woodland Hills. Been by the place and it looks like fun... just curious if the food is any good.

    1. jgold mentioned the food was terrible, a step above chuck cheese's (and the owner actual created chuck e cheese back in the day).

      1. I don't, in fact, think thats what JGold said.

        I've eaten there a bunch, and I enjoy the food; you may not have; but lets not start distorting jgold.

          Well, equating uwink's food to chuck e cheese is not an endorsement by any stretch of the imagination.

        2. I was thinking of going and did a yahoo or google search on uwink and it got pretty good reviews for the food. The recs said that the steak was not good but the other items were good.

          1. While foodies will obviously be critical about the quality of the food products, isn't the important thing also to judge the restaurant concept itself?

            Recipes can change; you can't (cheaply) overhaul the concept, particularly when it involves touchscreen LCDs.

              Concept sounds interesting at first, but I think it's not something that has legs if the food isn't good. For those with high end entertainment/gaming set up at home why bother going to the restaurant for something subpar?

              Plus I don't have problem ordering stuff exactly as I want them - whether it's at a full service restaurant or the pseudo service (walk up, order and they deliver the food), so the self ordering aspect is lost on me.

              The owner is probably thinking of an adult type (late teens or early 20s) of chuck e cheese equivalent.
