If The Elms wanted to make money as i am sure they do .Why dont they try some home cooking all there is in this town is short orders,we need someplace where we can get some old fashion home cooking.

To fast healer - I am the son in law - why cant anyone in this city have guts enough to say anything to anyones face. The only people that have posted bad things on this website is those stupid rednecks from Erwin that don't have a life. No one in Erwin knows me - and if anyone in this city that seems to be lost in the 1960's cares - the only reason I came here was because of love, I have lost pretty much everything - my house in NC is in foreclosure. I promised a very special woman that I would take care of her daughter and make sure that the dream of reopening the Elms would happen. Come here or don't come here I don't care. Just get a life - get a hold of all the kids that are growing up without parents. Anyone that wants to sit down and talk like adults come see me - or if you wish we can handle this a different way.
From this post, it doesn't sound to me like you like Erwin or the "rednecks" in it. So, maybe your family should move it's restaurant to a place where you actually care about the town and the people in it. A good business wants what is best, not only for their business and their family, but the town as well.

Not shocked they are having problems. The food is terrible when they have food. The few times I've been there they've been out of many things on their menu. You can't run a restaurant if you don't have what's on your menu. And probably the reason he doesn't have food is because no one will sale him food. He owes a lot of businesses and people around town money. The bad part is that he cant call the people and work with them to pay What he owes instead He instead hides from them and refuses to call them back.

Ok Bruce how would you like to settle this little matter. You know what i have said is the truth. And lets see i think about 6 employees just took Greg to court for non payment of work. He was found guilty sooo who is telling tells now big boy. Now lets talk about how you want to handle things.

Yeah,this will make things better for sure. Two wrongs do not make a right. This accomplishes nothing in the end. SMH

No one does home cooking any more, they use pre-cooked frozen meat and open can veggies add some fat meat in it and call it home cooking.
