Ampex Reviews

I have learned to appreciate the option of having many forms of propriety at my choosing, I do enjoy having the choice of mom and pop stores in this area due to the fact they are furnished with some of the best food around as apposed to the more commercial eating places. I like having the option of taking my monies where I can get a discount member card and membership also for savings on items most used by myself as a student and as a mother. Opting to have hot home cooked meals at the local bodegas and Spanish eateries is a serious plus, being a student I don't always have the time or energy to make Tamales or Menudo and it's here it's hot and served as regularly as any other form of food. Major chains offer there services as well and are seriously appreciated, once again I don't cook. It is very irregular for me to have to venture far away from this area for any of my personal and or purchasable necessary items, I like the fact there are options of all forms of patronage available and the Mall is not far either.

Redwood City is by far the best city I've lived at so far. I feel safe and love the people. The weather is great too.
I feel safe. There is always plenty of police at night as well as during the day
