I've heard about this farmers market for months and now, I hear that they are not even having one. I have made multiple trips to the Mainstreet Inc. Office to speak with Ms.Russ but, she never seems to be there. Every time I hear or read about this event, something has changed.

Perhaps Mr.Shuster is impressed with the look but, what about the businesses success? I guess he doesn't care if stores come in for six months and leave. I would like to see some stores last in our town.Mainstreet Inc. has not been giving grants to anyone.Waynesburger is nice but, WAY TOO expensive to eat at and they have a limited menu.My sister and I wanted to open a sandwich shop in that location but, Mr.Morningstar told us he did not want another food service in the location.Instead he spent the whole time trying to get us to file for the mainstreet grant, when we did not need or want it.

Waynesburger is EXPENSIVE? How so? Eaten there numerous times and $6-$8 for a complete meal, made with fresh ingredients is incredibly cheap, IMO.

The menu has what, perhaps 15 selections at the most? Personally, I find the menu choices deliciously unique for the area. The service has always been quick and friendly, the eating/seating area is invariably clean, and the multitude of seating choices ensures that everybody from the frail and infirm to bouncing-off-the-wall teens can find a comfy seat - some with front-row viewing of the burg's passers-by.

Waynesboro is FINALLY coming back to life, slowly but surely, and I, for one, am gonna stroll this Saturday, spend a couple of bucks, do a little people-watching and then I'm stopping off at the Waynesburger for a little slice of heaven on pita.

Since: May 09

Hey Waynesboro - while you're strollin' make sure you look both ways before crossing the street.

Thanks!

Wow, these people have no idea (or appreciation) for what they have. Can you imagine what that sandwich shop would have been? Probably another Mim's, Hat Heroes or Gracey's. No thanks!

Waynesburger serves real, fresh food at a reasonable price. Their burgers are delicious, their Nathan's hot dogs are better than any Ballpark dog you're probably buying and it's the only place in the county you can get authentic, rotisserie gyro.

Yet it's not as cheap as McDonalds and doesn't serve open faced turkey sandwiches smothered in gravy, so you've got to complain about it.

That's so sad. I should tell the owner to open a Chambersburger, where some of us might appreciate some quality over quantity for once.

It's been about a year and they're going strong. It's downtown, maybe you should take a stroll sometime anyway? Would a two block walk kill you?

Oh, yeah, it's Waynesboro so it probably could if you have to cross the street....

Actually, there's a BIG sign that says "Parking in Rear", although there's only about 5-6 spaces.

The sidewalks ARE kinda nice, huh?

What "burger joint"? I'm not sure they even HAVE burgers on the menu.

You really SHOULD check it out, it's a nice change, especially for Waynesbuggy.

How do all those cake pans the Waynesburger puts your food in, fit in the dishwasher? I doubt they do and am wondering about the cleanliness of them.
We won't go in anymore. The owner (definitely the owner with white hair) was sitting at a table when we came in, just after he first opened....he just looked up at us, no smile, no hello...then looked away. Maybe we weren't 'artsy' enough for him?? I know we were cleaner than his cake pans.:)

You mention the place accomadates the frail. How does one in a walker or wheelchair get up the steps and even if they could there is no hand rail and the steps are so wide that a person couldn't even use the wall. The sidewalk is so broken up, that a person with a cane could not even manage to walk to the building let alone get in.

This is so typical of a Franklin Countian, always finding the stupidest things to get all worked up about - probably in an effort not to sound cheap or fussy about food.

You know, at Moe's in Chambersburg they yell "Welcome to Moe's!" every time you walk in and EVERYONE has been complaining incessantly about it. So you know, what do you want, the owner to take you in the back and give you a happy ending?

As far as the cake pans not fitting in the dishwasher - you've clearly never worked in a restaurant. CLEARLY. And I find your accusation ridiculous. Restaurants have commercial dishwashing stations that lift up - not out like traditional dishwasher, and they accommodate the "cake pans" and more.

Their kitchen is out in the open for you to see. In my experience there, the kitchen area is clean, tidy, organized and let me tell you something else - the people working there are working their butts off. They care more about the quality of their food than whatever burger joint you're going to. It's a unique experience for Waynesboro, which is more than just burgers, but Nathan's hot dogs and real rotisserie gyro.

Maybe you aren't "artsy" enough for him - whatever the eff that means, the place was packed last summer every day with dirty construction workers.

I'm the first one to criticize any business, but these gripes are so typical Franklin County - lacking in substance or logic.

I don't patronize the Waynesbuger for their burgers, if I wanted burgers I could hit up just about any "burger joint".

Why so confrontational? Is it too difficult for you to participate in a simple discussion about a local restaurant in a civil manner?

From my perspective, Waynesboro has more going for it than Greencastle. There's certainly more to do.

Would you like to comment on the handicap unaccessability or is that lacking in substance too?

I've lived in Gcastle and Wboro, among other places, both are "quaint" little towns and both of them have their good and bad points.

mom-dukes, perhaps you can answer these questions, since you think you know SO much:

*Waynesboro has several museums, how many does Gcastle have?
*Waynesboro has an actual Historical District and a Shopping District (such as it is), does Gcastle?
*Waynesboro has several recognized parks, and Gcastle has....?
*Waynesboro has several recreational areas and businessess dedicated solely to fishing, boating, swimming, skating, horseback riding, hiking, backpacking - how many does Gcastle have?
*Waynesboro has a few dining establishments which also feature al fresco dining...Greencastle has how many (the table outside of Hardee's doesn't count)?
*Waynesboro has a community swimming pool, what 'cha go down in Gcastle besides Martin's Mill?(which, by the way, is a GREAT place to spend a hot afternoon)
*Waynesboro has a WalMart (Gcastle has E.L.M.- wow!)
*Waynesboro has more grocery stores
*Waynesboro has more schools
*Waynesboro has more bars

I don't live in either of those little towns anymore, but I am able to appreciate the charm in each. While Wboro "may" have more amenities for their citizens, that in no way puts Gcastle in a bad light, it's a lovely little town also.

me thinks mamapukes just likes to whiiiiiiiiiiine.
