Fri sat sun was by invatation only. I was lucky enough to receive one. It was in my opinion fairly priced and the quality of food was excellent.

The Beckley Cheddar's opens tomorrow, Monday August 13th 2012. Great food a very reasonable prices, like a Full-Rack of Ribs with two sides is only $13.99. Check them out. I hope to hear how your visit is when you decide to go.

I applaud Cheddars, they have hired 220+ employees for the Beckley location alone, I don't care if it is just "another restaurant" it is more jobs for the area and a great boost for the local economy. That's a lot of jobs produced just by one restaurant, I expect Olive Garden to hire just as many. Whether or not you think we need more restaurants, the resulting job opportunities must be appreciated.
I hear they are bringing a Panera Bread to town as well. I spoke with the Chamber of Commerce about it, and they said they were still drawing up papers on it, but it is to be next to the Sheetz off of Eisenhower before you get to Walgreens. It is a great economic boost, my mother is also looking for employment in the Georgia area, and has had no luck in the past two months.

I dont understand why it takes 220+ to run a restaurant. Thats just insane how do you expect to make money working there if you have more than 20 servers working at one time.
If they hire several workers at a time then it will be easy to pick out their best servers, plus they do not want to stress the ones they have by giving them to many tables at a time. All these servers are still learning the menu, and are new to waiting tables all together, so it is best to have more than not enough to begin with anyway.

LOL... Seriously? What are you people smoking to suggest that Beckleys drug problem is anything bigger than a gnat on the ass of a bear sized problem any major metro like Philly has.

Ill explain it to the one from Philly... its a form of Self fulfilling prophecy.

You hear about it.. you see it everywhere. Its the same effect that can be observed when you buy a new car, and then immediately see how "common" that car is on the road but never noticed it before.

You cannot be in this area without people telling you how horrible the drug crime is here. You hear about it, you see it everywhere. Even when it isnt present, you begin to assume its presence.

Perception created illusions. Nothing more. If this town were any more "sleepy" it would be comatose.
You have definitely been on the magic mushrooms way too long!

For once I agree with you, and it seems the smaller the town the more what you say is true. Good lord, you would think that Rt. 3 was worse than Miami if you hear the people talk down there. I just sick of hearing it. I have lived places where it is so much worse.

Just so you know the story about Cheddar's Drug Testing is a lie !! The GM advised everyone that they do not drug test, that's why they are opening on time. I know The Olive Garden is drug testing, and that's why they are still in the process of opening.

MYTH: CHEDDARS DRUG TEST

FACT: CHEDDARS DOES NOT DRUG TEST AND none OF THERE STORES EVER DRUG TEST !!

<quoted text>It's that bad! For a town this size it's simply amazing how many are strung out. These people have been devastated and they will never recover. This place never really had a lot going for it but it was peaceful. Now that peace has been shattered by at least one robbery every night,and a hand full of breaking and entering every night! That Zombie Apocalypse thing showed up in a prescription. Thanks greedy practitioners,you are now the new drug dealers! Thank you so much!
Think this through with me...doctors don't snatch people off the street or out of their homes and make them take drugs. People go from doctor to doctor, sometimes multiple doctors every day and beg for pain med, sleep aids, bad nerves pills,etc. Most carry in reports like x-rays, empty bottles from earlier prescriptions,etc. to validate their 'needs'. Yes, some docs are bad apples, but until you've dealt with some of these accomplished drug seeking actors it is hard to image just how convincing they can be. Then the addicted gets caught diverting their med and gets cut off as a contract they sign says. Then the only story you, their friends or relatives, hear is that bad doctor got them hooked. It IS VERY sad all the way around. But addicts don't tell the whole story. They lie to you same as they.do anyone.

I went today, it was somewhat packed but I only had to wait 20 minutes, so not too bad. That food was great, the waiter you could tell was still learning but very nice. So all in all it was good. Going back soon.
