You will get alot of misguided information going by other peoples opinions, it's best not to have the seed planted before you get to know the area; one persons bad experience doesn't have to be yours.
Have fun exploring our little town :)

Unless you have a last name from this area, BEWARE. There are some REALLY good folks here, but the system is stacked against you. Watch out for the businesses owned by the long-rooted families. It pays to check first. It cost me 750.00 from one, and about 4000 for another. I "learnt" my lesson. And watch how fast they defend this comment...

You make my point poet. This is exactly the mentality!
...Parted right into their pockets.
Again, do your homework before you spend your money. This link should get you started at least in dining.

Otherwise, ask around before you spend your money. Do your homework. It has been MY experience, so I choose not to spend significant money in this town. Too risky. Pride in workmanship and honesty in doing business is the problem. Soldiers and outsiders have no recourse.
There are GREAT businesses in this town. Make no mistake. But it is a shame that you may end up paying twice to get the job done right for services rendered. If you are shopping, compare to online and out of town markets. It becomes a no brainer when you can always beat the local prices because of the unreasonable markup. As implied by poet, BUYER BEWARE!
