Where do you eat in Apex, NC?

Choices are expanding - unfortunately mostly with chain restaurants.

I like Daniels Pizza and Pasta but I don't find it incredible, the same with Mamma Mia Italian. Cinelli's is one of the worst experiences I have ever had with Italian food.

Skippers Seafood is adequate if you want a fried fish meal with slaw and french fries.

I had high hopes for Jessica's Cafe (formerly Riz Raz) when I saw they were serving Mexican food but when I stopped in on a friday night the place was practically empty and my tacos (al pastor and barbacoa) were greasy and didn't taste fresh. I swear I heard the microwave beep from the kitchen several times before my plate came out.

Peak City Grill is decent but usually crowded on the weekends and I think it is overpriced. The steak I had there was delicious but the sides were very "meh". The brunch I had there was okay but expensive.

For quick chinese China One is pretty good. They are very accomodating to special requests and they have the BEST eggrolls. Their dumplings (pork) were thick and chewy and the meat mixture inside was unrecognizable and saturated with a dark tasteless sauce.

Tamarind Indian buffet is excellent. A saturday night dinner there was also excellent although it was disappointing that Naan does not come with the entrees.

Sorry if this sounds negative about all the ones I've mentioned - - maybe I've been watching too much Kitchen nightmares -- but I just haven't found a "go to" place that is local and fresh and not too expensive in Apex.
