Have you tried Q Smokehouse - Long Beach, CA at The Pike Outlets yet!? Formally known as Famous Dave's, this BBQ Hot Spot has amped up it's menu with all new items including Southern Fried Catfish, Pork Belly Sliders, and BBQ Jackfruit for our vegetarians out there!
I agree, parking should be validated for atleast 4-hours with maybe a 2 hour extension.
The parking office is useless. Instead of having a grain of customer service they proceeded to argue with me about how I was wrong (I wasn't, the machine is broken!). There were three other people who had the same issue as I did. The "manager" refused to give me a phone number to escalate until I called the police.
The number eventually
"The manager" told the police I was over by just a few seconds and had to pay $6. Those few seconds were the time spent when the ticket machine didn't take my ticket! Then they gave the police a phone number and "managers"
When I finally left, with the intent to contact about my experience
I go every weekend with my children and there is always something to do there or some kind of activity going on. Tuesdays are the best because it's matinee day at the Cinenark.
