Gallo Center releases 'eBartender' iPhone app

MODESTO - The Gallo Center for the Arts has announced the release of a new, free application for the Apple iPhone and other smart phones operating on Google’s Android operating system. Dubbed “eBartender,” the app allows patrons to go online to pre-order and pay for food and beverages, allowing for fast pickup either prior to a show or at intermission.

Patrons of the Gallo Center are encouraged to visit the iTunes App Store or Android Market and conduct a search for eBartender. Customers who download the free app and opt-in for text messages and e-mail will then be able to select and purchase beverages and snacks offered at Gallo Center concession stands. There is a 99-cent transaction fee per transaction for placing orders.

EBartender users can place their orders hours in advance on the day of a performance, and then pick them up simply by presenting their phone or picture ID at the eBartender concession line at the center.

Yelp.com ranks top 5 places to eat in Modesto

MODESTO - Yelp.com ranked the top five "Best of Yelp" places to eat in Modesto based on customer reviews. Do you agree?

Coming in at number one was Taqueria Modesto, 3501 McHenry Avenue, dubbed "best Mexican food around," by patron Kristen P. of Manteca. "This place is awesome," said Elk Grove resident Caleb G. "I was skeptical about how quick it would be at first, as the line was quite large and pretty sure it was a two-man team taking orders and putting up the food, but the line went quick and the food came even quicker."

Taking second place was In-N-Out Burger at 3900 Pelandale Avenue. Victoria N., of Modesto, said "Why do I even bother writing a review? Everyone knows its great, consistent, has good customer service, and is cheap."

Third place was awarded to La Parrilla Mexican Restaurant located at 950 Oakdale Road.
