I heard it's a good place to go if you're cheating on your husband with a guy that's married and works at Walmart. Just saying, don't hate.

Last one-hundered times I've been through there they were closed. No reason to stop if they are open now. The season is bout over.

It is good BBQ but a shame that you can't grab a six pack from the station/ store right across the street. I sure would like a cold beer to go with my BBQ and it would be so handy if I could get both in the same vicinity rather than having to drive all the way in to Cookeville! Why don't they sell beer there? It is in Putnam county isn't it?

Because the man behind him will NEVER let that store sell beer! It's a sad thing when people around you can tell a person what they can or can't sell, American or not!! I am glad to be LongGone1!!!

I agree, the store probably will not be able to stay in business very long without too so it is sad. The newest owners have kept their gas prices at a more reasonable rate than anyone else ever has before. It is a shame that the reasoning behind not wanting beer in there is because the purchasers might "hit a school bus"... if you are going to drink and drive you are more likely to be drunker coming from Kroger or Wal mart than you are pulling out with it! I wonder if the powers that won't allow shop at Kroger or Wal mart or anywhere else that sells it. They shouldn't be allowed to.

The owner pushed for beer sales, he wants it bad, but the community and neighbors went to court with him and would not allow it......

It WOULD be nice to to stop in at Roys on the way home and grab a 12 pack. Seems like people always have to interfere with a business when they're trying to serve the community and their customers. Bet that if a porn shop went in nobody would say a thing...

Yes, that's what I was trying to say, do you think it would hurt for the store to sell beer? I know I don't live there any more. But was just wondering what others living there think...
