I'm sure it will be one of the two. That is how stupid the business people in this town are. They don't seem to understand that customers want VARIETY, so they just keep opening the same kind of restaurants and wondering why they aren't successful. Duh!!!

El Acapulco couldn't afford the lease and was behind on payments due to its decrease in service and food quality, so Don Houseworth approached Pedro (El Puerto's owner) to see if he would move his establishment there or open another one. Pedro decided to open another one to get more money out of the people that travel and stay in the hotels nearby. Don also did this to not have another restaurant open that would give the Bistro and Perkins competition in regards to having the same kind of food.

They are doing what's best for them, which I could understand, but this town does need more variety, specially when you have Olympia overcharging for food that should cost half of what they charge; which they can get away with since they have no competition.

Three mexican places on the east side of town (El 7 Mares, Las Brisas and now another El Puerto). Oh and don't forget Taco Bell! So I guess there's actually 4 of them. Stupid stupid stupid.

Just put in something DIFFERENT! That is what the people of Bville want, and that is why they go to Jonesboro and Memphis to eat. Because there is actually some variety of restaurants to choose from there. Blytheville is such a joke. Why is it so hard to understand why this town is such a shit hole? People doing the same old same old just doesn't cut it. They will never learn.

Yea, there is almost nothing between west memphis and cape.

There were rumors years ago cracker barrel and some others looked at Blytheville, but did not like the workforce or financial demographics.

Can u afford to eat out after spending all that money driving back and forth between Dyer County and Mississippi County? Why not just work in Dyersburg? If Blytheville sucks so bad, why bother working here? Just a thought.

Pancho's was the best Mexican restaurant in Blytheville. Now you have to drive to West Memphis or Memphis for Pancho's food. And the best margueritas.
