I ate there for breakfast a few days ago. It is ok, nothing special. It is a lot cheaper than the Huddle House, and it taste better than the Huddle House.

The workers are super nice, of course it is clean in there right now since it is new.

Um......its just another fast food joint. Nothing to write rave reviews about. Are we ever going to get anything besides fast food here? Outback, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc. Anything but fast food!

Of the three you mentioned... Outback is possible. I do believe Paris could use another steak place... and I still haven't given up on Applebee's or something similar like Outback. However, if we could get a couple of new industries 200+ each I think it would happen sooner including other new growth. But, until we get some serious new industry and have lots of new people moving in some new business is going to have a wait and see approach.

Things are doing better, but we need something to really put a big jump on housing with new people moving in. This will help retail and restaurant growth.

A sea food restaurant down at the lake would be nice... but you've got to figure Paris Landing is seasonal... winter is a bust. But if another100 room hotel and convention center were to build it would help off set the lack of winter traffic.

Just a couple f thoughts.

The lake area has grown a lot in the past few years. I wouldn't be surprised to see more chain restaurants built around the lake in the next few years. Winter may ne slow for a few businesses there, but look at Meo Mio's, they stay busy year round. I think a national chain steak and seafood place would do great at Paris Landing.

Steak and shake is a step up. Wouldn't be classified as a fast food restaurant but no it's not an outback or applebees. But if paris supports steak and shake, it can go a long way into opening the door for a bigger chain restaurant

I totally agree with post #'s 7 & 8.

The lake area is growing and it's only a matter of time before another major hotel and/or restaurant builds in the general area of Hwy 119 and 79.

I believe Steak'n Shake will be the start of more things to come. In both retail and restaurants. Remember this Steak'n Shake is the only one this side of Jackson, Clarksville and Paducah. And our location puts Paris right in the middle for good growth possibilities.

And getting new industry would help to get some serious new growth going. All the current growth on Mineral Wells Ave. helps add to that potential. Once we get and keep his growth going new outside opportunities will start looking at Paris in a more positive way. And so will people and business wanting to move or relocate here.

It's the way growth works as I've seen it happen in other places and it can happen here.

Murray sits in that triangle too, and when a restaurant is comparing Murray or Paris, there is no competition.

Murray does have some better shopping but focused on the college crowd. Paris has more retirees with retirement funds.

As long as we have the good ol boys controlling what comes to Paris, we will continue to see the younger crowd moving away.

I will agree, but Murray it closer to Paducah and a lot of people in Murray go to Paducah to shop.

But with this said Murray has a 10,000 student university and Paris can not compete with that and many of the restaurants in Murray are college kid centered.

Take the university out of Murray and half the eating place would close, as well as retail, apartments and some of the bars... Murray is held together and depends on the university. Granted it's not likely to close so Murray keeps growing around the university.

Paris and Murray are different in many ways but each can and will grow on their different merits

This was not a tit for tat about what each town has and who is better, but it started as a review on Steak'n Shake and then expanded to what Paris can do to grow.

It's not about Murray!

I disagree with you comment. If you haven't noticed there is a lot of new construction going on Mineral Wells Ave.

And the "good ol boys" you speak of didn't stop any of it. And there is more to come.

Every town has this "good ol boys club" you speak of... including Murray. I hear them complaining just like people in Martin, Union City and Mayfield... everyone complains.

So the best thing YOU can do is either run for public office or help vote some of the ones we have out or do something productive and more positive than getting on here and being so negative.

The one thing we do need is new industry and I have talked to many local people about this... we are working on it, but we are also competing with every town within 100 miles to get new industry to this area.

Again YOUR negative attitude doesn't help... so get off topix and DO SOMETHING more positive... I have.

You're not very bright. Murray is closer to Paris, and the reason the people of Murray go to Paducah, is because there is NOTHING IN PARIS!.

I was talking about the triangle formed by Paducah, Clarksville and Jackson.

In that triangle you do have Paris and Murray, but Murray is in the north part of that triangle and closer to Paducah than Paris. I think you meant to say Murray is closer to Paducah not Paris! Now who is the bright one?

And by the way... does Murray have a Steak'n Shake?

They may eventually... but Paris was the first... So put that in your "nothing in Paris pipe and smoke it." And yes Murray has a big university and Paris does not... we all know that!!!

And most people in Paris go to Jackson or Clarksville for what they can't find in Paris or even Murray for that matter.

Hey if I really want to go shopping... I will go to Memphis or Nashville. I haven't been to Paducah in 15 years. And it been over 5-10 years since I have done any shopping in Murray.

The last time I shopped in Murray was at Lowe's before they built in Paris and before that I went to Lowe's or Home Depot in Jackson... now I go to Lowe's in Pars.

Hey... FYI... I went to MSU and I don't have a problem with Murray, so this not a competition. The point is I prefer to shop at home and if not I go to Jackson or Memphis.

I don't have a problem with what Murray has in fast food or retail... and most of these places you mentioned are fast food. Applebee's might be a step up.

And Sirloin Stockade... didn't know it was a national chain. I ate there about 10 years ago and unless it has changed the tables were jammed in so close I couldn't move.

Bottom line... it's nothing more than a fast food place that also sell steaks. I was not impressed.

And again it's not a competition... Murray has most of these places because of the university.

We were finally able to get in late last week.

We had an excellent lunch...and it was a few bucks cheaper than McDonald's or Wendy's would have been...and a lot tastier.

I have heard nothing but good reports... however, and after two weeks people are still standing in line to get in... which is good.

I hope it stays busy... but I will wait till a slow time before I stop. Hey just for the record I have heard rumors that Krystal may be looking to build.

Finally, Paris is getting some new good growth and we need to keep it going.
