Sad commentary on the Warren Pierce show this AM on 760. The owner said the traffic is just down too far to remain viable. Like Yogi said, "da place is so busy nobody goes there any more." That's free enterprise.

PS. What I have observed of successful restaurants over the years is that they have to change continually or they lose support. They need to remodel, move things around, get new carpeting, paint it differently. All this creates an image of newness that attracts repeat business. I never went to Family Buggy. I'm only guessing that they may have tried to keep everything the same and preserve the theme. If so, they shot too low. After all, people gotta eat.
