Boom's in Kanawha City
KC is a dump

Charleston, WV

#28 Jun 5, 2014
Kanawha City is getting flooded with Mexicans they are all over the place. Landlords are renting to them and allowing ten maybe tewlve to live in a two or three bedroom apartments or house as long as the rent is paid. No upkeep on the property just as long as the rent is paid the owners will turn there head. Kanawha City before long will be another East end or West side. I give it ten years if not sooner.

Dear inside source

If you haven't noticed all the Shoneys other that the downtown one are defunct. I hope Boom's does make it I really do, but if Shoney's went to the way side under this person then what makes you think he can make this place work?

Bottom Line is KC is slowly but surely on the decline. Housing included. Propery value is already taking a plunge. Do the research and you'll see.

I think KC needs some new low income housing complexes like Huntington's Northcott.
Huntington racists are tearing down Northcott, so this would be an excellent opportunity for KC to capitalize on getting many of these former tenants with new housing.
This would help these poor low income families and single moms, it would increase KC's population, and help many KC businesses with more employees and customers and provide more business opportunities for entrepreneurs.
Because with a growing diverse population these people will have different business needs and wants.
Smart entrepreneurs will cater to those business needs and wants and provide KC with many more businesses and tax income.
Not to mention it would be an excellent opportunity to add to the diversity that KC sorely needs.

Perhaps you need to reread my post before you attack someone with a smart ass attitude.

I never said Booms would or would not be successful one way or another. I also don't care how the Shoney's in the area are doing, although I do enjoy eating at the one at Quincey. I only pointed out that it is NOT going to be a bar or a club but only a place to eat to put an end to the rumors. I know someone that works for the man that owns the place and that's how I know it's not going to be a bar or a club.

I could care less about Kanawha City or your property values. They don't matter because by the time Obama and the EPA is done with the coal industry Charleston and the surrounding areas will be as rundown and worthless as Detroit.

They're not going to open until early spring maybe even not until next summer. 8 maybe 9 months from now. You may want to find something else until then.

that's a lot of rent and utilities to be paying with no revenue. Sounds like a money pit to me.

Their sign out front says they're accepting applications now... it's been on there for about 2 mo. now. You'll have to stop in sometime during the day when someone is there.

I heard they haven't hire anyone yet because they can't afford the applications. I am telling you they're not going to open until next spring if not later. Why I don't know, but it'll be empty throughout the winter and next spring. I hear their target date is May 1st 2015.

Hey Bob

If whomever owns or is trying to put that rats nest together can't afford to purchase some applications or is to dumb to print some off the net, then how in the hell can they afford a lawyer to sue someone? Duh!

So true! I saw they still have the 'NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS' sign up by their restaurant! I bet you are right that they won't open until next year some time! Peace and quiet hopefully until then! That gives KC homeowners PLENTY of time to file their Motion in Circuit Court to have Boom's shut down much longer (even before they open next year) for all of their cited health-code and failed inspection violations they have already received, including their recent gas leak!! BOOM!!!

Sweetheart in case you didn't notice KC has already went to the dogs. Just drive up and down McCorkle and look at how filthy it is. Check out all the businesses, there either a pharmacy or some doctors office dispensing pills to anyone with a pulse. Chiropractors, sleep disorders etc, not to mention SIX pharmacy's between the bridge and K Mart...SIX!

Old men getting murdered with hammers back doors being broken (home invasions) shootings etc. KC has had it's day in the sun I wouldn't live in that drug zone for any amount of money now a days.

Baby Cakes get your head out of your ass KC is becoming a drug haven and an eye sore and that is all there is to it. it's a dump
Chas, South Chas, Huntington......the whole state is one big dump. Who the hell are you trying fool. Chas WV has had its heyday and is on its way to being the next Detroit. It's over with people. The "Friends of Coal" needs to deal with it.

It was myself and my husband.. Dinning room was practically empty, 1st on the list and still waited 35 minutes for a table.. Server came to our table and with biscuits "C-" and 2 plates one that had parsley on it and she blew it off and placed it in front of me.. The menu looked real good! I ordered the chicken wings "wicked hot" and my husband ordered some kind of burger... My wings were small and Very dry I only ate 2.. The sauce had a strange taste.. It was very mild.. No heat at all.. My husband said his burger wasn't good at all and didn't finish it... We had chips and queso and guacamole. The Guacamole was very warm and tasted bad. We were very disappointed. we had 2 beers which was good, but our bill came to $46.00... Not worth it at all... We aren't going back. Over all D+ only because the beer washed it down..
