  • I love Porch Light in Prairirville; I go there at least 3 or 4 times a week. I have become friends with the waitresses and cooks. Everyone is so friendly; my husband and my friends just love the delicious food, and the family atmosphere. It is my home away from home.

  • North Fork Vet Clinic is by far the best vet in the area. My entire family has used them for over 20 years. Dr. Sheriff just can’t retire. He has cut down to 4 days a week , usually. I have even called him at home once when I was very concerned that no one had called about my dog on a Sat. He met me at the clinic after hours to I could pick her up. My daughter fought with her dog Lucy to control her diabetes for 5 long years, which is really unheard of for a large dog. Currently, my other daughter has a rescued husky who keeps having blood count issues. The whole staff have been wonderful with us

  • Murdoch’s is the best of my neighborhood stores and in Cheyenne. They have something for everyone! I can get everything from dog food to sandals at Murdoch’s. They sell tools and every kind of items that you might need. My very favorite department in Murdoch’s is the clothing section. They have numerous brands of jeans, tops, jackets, etc. I purchased my last two pairs of Fat Baby’s at Murdoch’s. Fantastic store!

  • Take Me There Transportation Service is the best! Number 1!! I have been traveling for 36 years, taking a lot of car services, Take Me There is the best, reliable, affordable. Thank you Take Me There!

      Thanks for your time

      • Thanks, Shane, I think we may have a few handyman jobs coming up. Do you charge by the hour or by the job? Thanks.

        • I just left a comment for you and I didn’t think to ask you where you are located. I just always assume on nextdoor that the people are in Lake City, but I see that that is not necessarily true. Please let me know where you are located. If it’s outside of Lake City, I’m afraid I won’t be able to use your services. Thanks.

  • Aspire Colorado is making local wellness products in refillable containers, to provide a way to reduce once-through plastic on things we use every day. They have tooth powder, deodorant, lotion bars and even liquid all-purpose soap. They are hosting recycling boxes for hard-to-recycle plastics that align with their products, such as toothpaste tubes, tooth brushes, razors, razor blades, pens, mechanical pencils and felt-tipped pens. The boxes are in front of the business outside, where any neighbor can drop their items, and learn more about how they can reduce once-through plastic waste. Located at 2009 Ford Street in Golden, a home business.

It is a wonderful hidden gem of Oakdale! #NextdoorFave

  • On Nextdoor I have found more valuable information then the internet or Facebook! The way people share their knowledge and information on topics that are important to the way and how we live at home and in our community have been so educational and helpful. I do not get out much due to no car and my health. Thank you Neighbors!

  • I had the very nice pleasure to be shopping at a fairly new business called Model Institution. The young lady that helped me was such a joy to talk with. We covered topics from Stag-horn ferns to gemstones, crystals and vintage items that were displayed in the store. So interesting, kind and knowledgeable. I hope to be able to share this store with many of my neighbors and friends. they are located on the corner of SW Ash and SW Burnham St. across from the dog park.

  • Has anyone else been notified they’re a Neighborhood Favorite only to find that another company is listed? 🙁 I’ve reached out to Nextdoor and filed a ticket and they continue to ignore me. I’m really frustrated because we sent out a notification that we won and someone called us out that we’re not actually listed. I feel sabotaged and like Nextdoor is eroding the trust and transparency that earned us a Neighborhood favorite in the first place. Now we look like liars.

    • Hi Elliot, thanks for reaching out. More than one business can be voted as a Neighborhood Favorite in each category, but only 1% of all businesses win this award, so there is definitely reason to celebrate! Congrats 🎉

  • “Social dry lounge” at plaza de lapaz in Laguna Niguel, best blow dry bar that just opened! I get my hair blown out while my kids get their haircut

  • You will enjoy the best BBQ, Brisket and Steak at your local Chillin & Grillin Shack Restaurant and Catering at the Central Garage location in KW….They also have a large menu with half pound hamburgers, best in area.

  • If anyone wants an excellent haircut, the place to go is BSG on Larrabee St.
    It’s an awesome spot that will leave you feeling handsomely styled and pampered.

    The 2 stylists are very talented, leaving you feeling comfortable while you’re there. Whether you’re in Blake or Brandon’s trusty hands, you’ll have no worries as to whether they know what they’re doing.

    Be sure to take advantage of a Nitro beverage while there.

    It’s a small shop so you really feel as if you are in someone’s cool man-cave as opposed to a more bustling environment.

  • If anyone’s looking for an experienced contractor to remodel any room in your house or condo, you have to call Simon at Cal-First Builders! I found him on Home Adviser.com. After speaking to 4 others, I went with Cal-First. He did an incredible job on my total kitchen remodel. Amazingly, it was done to perfection in about 4-5 weeks. I’m a picky guy and it turned out beautifully. He came back to perform a minor cabinet adjustment 5 months later without hesitation. I’ll use them for every other project in my place. You should too!

  • I love the South County Senior Center. Their lunch program is very. good. I take classes rhere and am a musician in the ShowStoppers performance group. The people are very friendly.

    IThe senior center is also quite close to rhe Edgewater Community Library, which is also very nice.

  • Ultimate Granite on Rolling Acres Road…Best Selection, Best Price….they go out of their way to please their customers and there is never pressure to buy…I LOVE my quartz countertops and my new BR sinks…which were surprisingly affordable
