Oh goody. Another rumor. I'll add that to the long list of all the other restaurants that people 'heard' we were getting. Come back when you have verifiable facts, please.

Well you come back when you know the information troll. Maybe this was an attempt to see if anyone else has heard this as well.

How is the new restaurant on US 60 (the former Marty Stevens building )? Does it serve good home style food like the Truck Stop off 64 East (which is closing )? Hope so! Anyone eaten there? Thanks

They were open for the week of Poppy mountain and that is about it. The burgers were dry and the onion ring were really really greasy. They were using a fry daddy to cook them and since the temp wasn't as high as a commercial fryer that slowly cooked in the oil while the breading absorbed a lot of it. Not good or worth your money. As you see, no one is ever there.

the one in martys old building isn't even open... i don't think it ever will... and when I stopped there during poppy when it was half assed open it sucked. Their deep fryer was broke? on the first day? really... where did you get it a yard sale? And wasn't shoneys pretty much a big boy... the burger they sold was just like the big burger from big boy... plus I heard big boy is going out of business too so i doubt it.

It was just in the news a couple of days ago, Frisches Big Boy is one of 10 restaurant chains that is going out of business. Don't know where you heard that, but I'd find better sources next time.

I'm friends with the owner of the reaturaunt Dave & Judy's and I will be sure to let them know about the concerns expressed here. I know that they take a lot of pride in their investment and just to let you know the reaturaunt is closed at the moment because they are installing their commercial grade equipment. Please understand that the short time they were open during poppy mountain was just a trial run and a learning experience. Please go and try them again when they open full force. I honestly, ate there a few days when they were open and my wife and i really enjoyed the meal. Their ribs and cole slaw are delicious! Please give them another chance! I am confident that your opinion will change.

Where are you all getting this information on Frisch's closing? I know the main corporation has closed down some of their Golden Corrals, six I think. But that was last year.

I heard it on the news about a week ago that Big Boy is one of 10 failing chains that are closing most, if not all, locations.

I found some info here: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/these-are-ame...

Another reference to Big Boy's disappearing is on the Wall Street site here: http://247wallst.com/2012/12/12/americas-disa...

Hope this helps.

Well Dave and Judys needs to hire people that arn't on pills or whatever some of them are on... I didn't try the ribs but I"m sure they are good. I will give them another shot, I promise. Just wasn't impressed with the burgers.
