Everyone knows about Bartolini's and Hog Wild. Their food is IMO okay and good respectively, but I'm really tired of their "we don't need you, you need us" additudes. I'd like to throw my support behind a few other businesses in town. 1) Midwest Meat Market - Honest Abe is genuine and you can't beat the quality. 2)Fannie Mae, isn't it nice that we have them here, expecially for that last-minute gift? 3) Eye Doc - what a genuinely nice guy and very reasonable; 4) Tony's Tacos - I've had his food twice and it has been delicious -- but more than anything, he seems to appreciate the business and doesn't act like he is doing YOU a favor. Please mention the others you feel add something to our community.

Wtf do you mean??? Everytime I go into either one the owner/owners are walking around talking to you the customers, I never seen these attitudes that you speak of. And for the record I do go to these places a lot

2Sisters (Bev) is pretty awesome. Hard to go there often for obvious reasons though!:)
I do like Hog Wild, and MOST of their staff are the nicest wait staff I've ever experienced.
I still love Gum Wah.
A non food place I love is the Automatic Appliance Parts store. They have saved my bacon several times when I had to fix my own appliances.

I hear that the Wondering Why person and you both like the bacon since he is always covering yours to protect you.

No wonder why I don't or won't post that much anymore. Some people need a life.

I've always been a fan of King Chop Suey, but the last time I ordered it seemed like they rushed and it wasn't as good. But that is the only time I was unhappy.

Thanks for the "dont get". I was wondering about them but haven't gotten around to trying them yet. Gum Wah can be that way too when they get too busy, but usually they are spot on.

At last, a worthwhile topic!
I am all about the service. Good service means I come back.
Gum Wa is a great place. The owner , Bruce is wonderful. The old Citgo, now known as Amstar. The owner and his employees make you feel welcome. Midwest meats, also a great place for the oldtime butcher shop feel. I already miss the jerky store. I also know the owner of Keystone. Service there is wonderful( all politics aside). I wish Flying tigers was bigger so they could carry a larger inventory. I also like the service I get at Mid Villa pizza. And I have been in the music store here in town and have always been treated well there.

Did you know that BACON used to be a dinner food? And did you know that BACON spelled backwards is NOCAB? Just a few fun facts.
