I noticed it had a new name today.

Wish they would concentrate more on the food and less on the name.

I would like to see something special served ,that I couldn't whip-up in 5 minutes at home.

Already? That didn't last very long. What is the name of the new place? To be frank, I didn't think it would last long and nothing will until businesses start staying open later. The town is still virtually empty after 5pm and the traffic grinds to a halt. I don't think the Ottos really know what they are doing when it comes to running a real restaurant and they were too closely associated with Barbara and Tina Murrow, who are pretty much chasing off everyone in Dandridge. Nobody wants to be around these two.

Somebody called me a "douchbag".Oh,well.T raffic "grinds to a halt" because uhhhh,most people have got off work and are headed home.It aint no secret,that you perty much dislike the Ottos,Barb and Tina but it aint all their fault.Unless its a franchise food joint,the success rate for restaurants aint been that great in Dandridge.The economy really has driven the stake in deep.Got to admire folks for trying but admiration dont pay the bills and staying open in a 'ghost' town apparently dont either.Am I blabbing on about restaurants again? Shame on me.

Is it possible that the owners micro-managed the renters?
I say rent to a chef and let the renters manage their own business.
Stay away from the breakfast trade, stick to lunch & supper. focus on dining at night and not a pig-out.

I've been on the history tour and never heard a mention of of that area being called Kykers Corner. I am surprised that the history nazi's that are choking the life out of this town have not said anything.

Well, to be honest these people are smart.
according to several online dictionaries Kike or Kyke is an ethnic slur used chiefly in the United States to refer to a Jew.

But, as far as the Otto's go. The lady that owns the place always wanted a part of the business. It was in the lease that you pay rent and you pay a portion of profits. She also had a say in who you could employee and what your menu could be.

So I can see frustration leading to the Otto's wanting out.

Now that she has driven off all other tenants let us see her restaurant expertise shine

This town and the whole county is run by the good ole people, who ain't gonna let nothing change without their stamp of approval and what's in it for me attitudes. Every aspect of every business, the schools, the county business as a whole with the exception of maybe a handful of folks who are hated down until they give up or get out of it. If you ain't from around here or in the click you ain't shit in your own backyard.
Will someone please prove me wrong?

The Kikers owned one of the historic houses near the resturant. I don't know what else they owned but I believe that the owner was their heir. No slur...just a family name. The new owners are experienced in the business but they need to improve the menu and step up the pace a little. The place has a bad reputation and they need to prove themselves soon or it will change hands again.

It will not make it. Tinsley Bible has the only viable business plan for downtown Dandridge. Stay open as little as possible and have great food at 1940's prices. The Courthouse Cafe, Some Like It Hot, Smokeys, Southern Comfort, Tops, and numerous other eateries have failed within 100 yards of each other. Why would this place be any different? You can already hear crickets chirping when you drive by at prime dinner time.

This location and this town needs a good Diner with great Home Cooking-Meatloaf,Mac & Cheese,Good Burger,Pot Roast ect...These people opening up restaurants just dont get it.This type of place would be busy and people would come back.All you need is a good chef and a plan..yes a plan,something all the others didnt have!

We went there for breakfast 2-3 weeks ago; they didn't know the difference between home fries & potato chips.
Nothing special, won't go back.

Can we just outlaw eating outside the home in dandridge? This will save restraint owners the heartbreak and we can all give more of our money to Food City.

Come on garrow. We know you have a stake in Kykers. This statement is bs because nobody orders home fries or chips for breakfast.
