Location hidden

#1 Feb 22, 2013
Wow. That didn't take long. I never ate there but I talked to a handful of people that did. General consensus was good food, kind of expensive for what you get (except for lunch specials) and a slow serve place with a fast food message. They must've spent a ton on radio advertising. Kinda sorry I missed it.

So, what's going to take its place? Another ice cream/frozen yogurt joint? Burgers, fries, blah blah? King Tut's Fotohut?

Also, looks like Pete's Pour house is done for. No surprise there. I went there twice thinking my first bad experience was just a fluke. Nope, not the case. Note to potential restaurateurs: Make sure the fine people you're hiring have, you know, fine people skills. Rude & aloof service workers kill return customers - no matter how good your food is.

I went there shortly after they opened. I wanted some kind of fish sandwich. You know, seafood place at lunch time...fish sandwich?

They had to think about it for a minute... There wasn't one on the menu.

I'm not surprised that they closed already.

I think that location would be great for an Arby's!

As far as PPH, I agree with Yuck. Not sure what the fate of that location is. Probably like a lot of bars/restaurants; if the right person grabs it you never know. Kind of like the magic Paul Shaver or John K used to impart to a place.

The location where Hurricane Mo's is now is an example. Many, many businesses started and failed there. Then H. Mo's came along and it has become a great locals hangout and is doing fine!

Arby's should never have left. I ate at Shrimp to go once and that was enough, I had a couple crab cake sliders and it took 10 min to get them. It was a dumb idea, but I liked the radio ads. Pete's was just bad, the people were very friendly but the food was all frozen yuck. If I want that I'll go to Burger King since it is still open and I'll take my service dog to finish what I don't eat.

They should open an AT&T or Sprint store in the Shrimp to Go location!:^)

That made me laugh, even though I would like to see the Arby's back run by the Wendy's hamburger nazi. Or Hardee's.

I will vote for a combination KFC/Taco Bell/Pizza Hut in that dead area that used to be a gas station across from KH Elem. Our workers would eat there for lunch since there is nothing close except McD's... not to mention once summer hits, it would make a killing. As far as the shrimp place goes, come on, really... fast food shrimp??? What self respecting local would even set foot in that place when any self respecting local knows he/she can come home for lunch and cook said shrimp themselves in under 30 minutes without the poor service???

What self respecting local wants another KFC/Taco Bell/Pizza Hut? Walk the talk and carry your ass home and cook shrimp!

Actually, once in a while I like KFC or Taco Bell. I can take or leave PH. I'd love to see a Bojangles Chicken down here.

I don't know who owns that old station/store that greg talked about but will be an ideal location for something someday. Right where tourons come off the bridge in the Summer!

Billy Roughton owns the lot where the old gas station was. He had plans for something there once, but I can't recall what now. Hardee's or Popeyes or Bojangles would be good there.
