Van Nest Reviews

All Categories
There are few stores and limited options. Run by grocery stores not a variety. Lots of gang activity outside every deli, cops constantly making arrest on the big avenue. The neighborhood is flooded with the smell of marijuana and the people are mostly disrespectful. Only one supermarket and it is run poorly rather travel to another one.

The food is mostly acceptable but not in a healthy manner. Most spots look filthy and the smell wont bring you in your appetite will. The employees seem cool but mostly speak to each other in Arabic, it leaves you wondering what are they doing to your food. They have reasonable closing hours but the later it is the more people come out stealing and smoking.
Most people in my community keep to their selves. The best would an occasional hello and sometimes even a head nod. They make noise at all hours of the day. My first weekend living there the man that lived above me was robbed. Then the next week a man was shot on the corner, this area gets quiet then goes all the way back up.
