I was thinking the same thing about the wage. We are members of the ymca and as soon as the election was over they said they had to raise the rates because of the increase in wages. What a bunch of BS. It's barely going up this next year. When I have checked their jobs online, this last year, I saw they are already paying most people around $9 an hour, so its not gonna hurt them. Cost of living has gone up a lot in the last 10 to 15 years, so should wages but companies just want to keep all the extra themselves.
The minimum wage for cooks and back of the house restaurant staff will be $9.30 this year. I loved Marigold, but if they can't find the means or the heart to pay their staff this much, then good riddance.
I wonder if C. Springs can support Prime 25, The Famous, Cowboy Star and McKenzie's, all of which feature entrees in the $30+ range. I would look for at least one of these to close this year, especially with C. Springs per capita income lower than it was in 2005.
Well thanks for the honest feedback. We'll try to improve as we love our city, just like you! Btw, My name is not spelled Roland, and I'm not from Fayetteville...fact checking, spelling for journalists?....details are always a work in progress aren't they?...guess the mission continues for all of us!
The Famous has one of the best filet mignons I have ever had. Quality meat and they know how to cook it. Can't beat it and the price is fair.
Antonio is THE nicest man and the food is AMAZING. We eat there once or twice a week. Super fresh produce and finally someplace that seasons meat with sauces to die for. FINALLY a Mexican restaurant worth driving to!
Who goes to a steakhouse to review a drink and dessert? Thanks for nothing.
Well written.. I can't wait to go back... what a blessing for the Springs... I only hope the Springs shows up to aporeaciate!
Why are you reviewing chains? Old Chicago in a new location? The ridiculously busy Bubba's? Really... They all have enough business. Everyone already know about all the chains in town. I want to learn about local places. Please review local places and not chains that have moved or that everyone already knows about. I would expect those reviews from the gazette not the independent...
Best sit down Mexican food in the city. I reiterate sit down, because there are still a couple trucks that smash them all.
There was a typo in my previous comment. This is corrected.
I have to say I highly disagree with this. I love the food. The people are amazing. The weather in which you state was not a blizzard was actually quite bad here in falcon. Also I love that the truck is very affordable allowing my large family to eat there.

I have worked with Bob and Nancy for almost two years now and they are wonderfull employers. They treat thier employee's with respect and dignity. I have also basically eaten everything on the menu. I can personally vouch for the hash. I order it with over easy eggs. It is divine how the egg yoke compliments the rich flavor of her corned beef and sweetness of her soda bread. It's extremely hard not to spend all the money I make on the food alone. I can't wait to see how thier business plans unfold for this lovely place called On the Boulevard.
Thanks for the tip about those Boca burgers. I'll have to check one out when next I stop by. And thanks for your readership!
The best thing about George's, for me, is that they have a good Boca Burger. Larger patty than the Bocas you get at the grocery. And to be able to get a Boca brand burger from a drive-thru... Yahweh, she smiles.
Me and a dear friend of mine went here today because of your review. We were sadly disappointed for the price the amount of food was almost ridiculous butt since we were paying $40 for 1 steak with a quarter cup of refried beans in a cup next to it ordered medium rare and we received it well done when we said something about it cuz there was absolutely no pink in the steak at all we were given $5 off so we paid nearly $35 for an overdone tough piece of meat granted the flavor was awesome but very disappointing.

Fantastic recipe! Tried it in an MEC dutch oven (it's made from pure clay) and it came out excellent. This is what I did differently though: I added the chicken and once the oil and liquids started showing up, added the shallots. Didn't take the chicken out of the pot. This way I didn't have to add chicken stock, just the juices in the pot were enough. These special pure-clay pots did a fantastic job. Although I know food is much healthier and turns out more delicious when cooked in them, didn't think it would be easy to use... but to my surprise it was easier than cooking in metal pots.
We went to the Smokehouse Barbeque on North Academy. The service was lousy. I had ordered a few items, but I was told that they were not available. Then, when I ordered a refill on my drink, I had kept waiting as she never brought it. I felt like I was neglected throughout the entire service. bad customer service to say the least. Then, we asked for to go bags and boxes for our left over food. On our way out, the manager demanded that we stop, so that he can check the bags. He had rummaged through the entire food, until his search was complete. It was almost as if he thought we had stole something, which we had not. Then, we I expressed my dissatisfaction of the service, he had an attitude and demanded an explanation. It was just an overall bad experience.
