What is all this crap I'm hearing about them letting go of Mark Burg, the guy who built the place??? Been goin there awhile now cuz that guy is a great owner and great to his customers. I done heard that some sleeze manager and some other owner and some gay bartender had forced Mark outta of his own place?? Anybody heard rumors of this? If it's true, I ain't spending another dime in that place!!!that guy was cool and I always saw him workin! Wonder what that other owner ever did at all????

Hey, if this is true (I don't know him) but he should come into Paris and build a similar restaurant... would probably do real good and create some new varity.

I don't know where you have gotten your info, but Mark is not and has never been a owner. He is the owner's boyfriend and worked for her. Sorry.

Your right. You ARE sorry. All of HIS customers know who poured HIS blood sweat and tears into that place. All of HIS customers know how nicely HE treated us and how he bent over backwards to provide a fun place for people to go. And now WEsee how others are bending him over to stick it to him. WE are not going to put up with it. WE are Mark's customers. You CAN't put a gag order on us.

It's simple. No customers - no cash. No cash, no jobs. No Mark=no customers=no cash=no jobs=no restaurant. Great timing too. During winter that place needs locals more than ever. Sorry. Not happenin. They gonna make up for it with Christmas parties? Bah Humbug. Them employees be llookin out the window at a packed parking lot at Dry Docks., wantin to apply for jobs there.

That manager they got has the karisma of a cow pie. She gonna bring in new folks? Bring back locals? Nope. Only chance she got is to turn that place into a strip joint.

Elvis may have left the building, but Elvis fans are fearcely loyal. Elvis fans go where Elvis goes. End of story GAG on THAT.

Glassed eyed and inebriation always explains everything in your game, too bad your dick never mad me scream. It’s just a shame; those that attempt to “hide” behind the door of reality truly never get the game. A typical “drunk” who makes friends with a hand shake or wink, give a drink away with no more than a blink. Yes you’re the business man for sure that’s why you got shown the door!!!!!!!!!! Ask your buddy “Bud Dave”on the hill think he’s bullet proof with his will. You tried your best but failed, that’s ok, the one’s you run with are losers just the same. Takers and Makers you have know idea, see ya in court and let’s not make a deal!!!!! Nice try,“Bitch”

Wow. You come across as an illiterate, bitter and misguided skank! What a great embassador for your "restaurant" now that Mark is gone. How was business tonight? Get used to it. If it's possible for Wednesday - Sunday to be as slow as Monday and Tuesday, that's what you'll get. Reap the whirlwind. Reap it!

Could this possibly be one of the “defenders,” maybe the drunken pedophile that makes his rounds form bar to bar? Yes, I too have friends at the Sheriffs department and your previous actions have been documented.

Hmmmm, dont know the manager seemed nice enough when we were there was even nice the last time He was short staffed he was busing tables but was sweating all over with hair dripping, yes he was nice and very polite especially when the cook messed up our food. Even offered to cook himself but the long hair dripping With sweat was unsanitary and made everything unappealing so we said no thank you gave up and went home. Have not been back since and it has been almost a year. We try to find places local to go. We judge by the quality of the food And courtesy of staff and cleanliness. Not the beers and who we can chat up. Did notice a few glued to the bar that were there on more than one occasion and they seemed to be on a liquid diet. It is nice that the man has friends to so defend him hope you guys will take him under your wings and employ him or donate Money to support him til he gets another position. Put your money where your mouth is, unless there is another reason you are complaining so loudly? Alcohol can be gotten at matts or downtown unless you dont drive.
Well any way good luck to the Old manager and the restaurant. We will come see what the conditions and food quality are soon. Hopefully we can add another local place to our weekend options.

Sorry, you dumb hick. Whoever posted from Dyersburg was dead on! Mark B was given a small piece of that place, but his former female friend owned most of it. He didn't pour anything into it except free booze for his idiot followers, and some semen into anyone that he could coax into his trailer...which he also doesn't own. The restaurant was losing money only because that drunken sot used all the profits for drugs and buying off the cops. He became a complete embarrassment to the Meo Mio's franchise and they recommended that he be terminated. You morons who are writing this negative crap about the great staff that they have retained need to get your facts straight or you could be looking at a lawsuit for defammation of character. Nice try, Mark B and loser friends. It's exactly your kind that will not be missed at that place.

Very well put; the regulars at the bar were just followers that took advantage of the free booze. Hope you will go back...the place is finally in great shape!!!

He was forced out by Meo Mio corp. Please see my comments below. The 'other' owner was by FAR the majority owner, and the management staff now is great. The comments about the manager and bartender are totally off-base. I suppose they both turned you down, so all you can think of is to make disparaging comments about them. Please don't spend another dime there; sounds like you need to go back to 2nd grade.

Wow. Where is all this crap coming from? A bunch of pond scum bottom feeders forcing the guy out of his own place? Employees who done stole so much liquor from the place? A group of disloyal losers who betrayed the guy who gave them a job in the first place? Way to protect them great jobs you got. Thought some of those jobs relied on tips. Thought ALL the jobs relied on bringin in customers who will spend cash. I brought my family in there all the time. No more. We'll keep our business in Paris, thank you very much. Paris Country Club a shorter drive anyway. Oh you can't afford to join? Well maybe yall can get jobs there then. My Escalade needs a good washin too!
