Anyone know who is opening Dirty's bar and grill where the old Georgie Boys use to be at 706 Lincoln avenue?

I thought I read in the paper that Unique Homes bought the property and were going to hire a management company to run restuarant.

Beverly Herr is NOT the owner! She used to tell everyone that but she has never owed any part of the place. As a matter of fact, Reggie (the actual owner) told her she needed to stop telling that lie.

Been there a few times. The food is average to good, but the service is horrible. 45 minutes to get our simple order.

Beverly Herr is NOT the owner! She used to tell everyone that but she has never owed any part of the place. As a matter of fact, Reggie Phillips (the actual owner) told her she needed to stop telling that lie. And here is an interesting video of her telling that lie. Interestingly, she and her friend/co-owner Mike Sistko (No, he isn't an owner either) said on her facebook page that this video has a few "mis-statements".

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

I don’t know what a mis-statement is, but here are some of the outright lies in the video:

•Beverly is not the owner. The Phillips family owns the place.
•Beverly is NOT a graduate of Western Illinois University (technically, she only says she “went” there).
•Mike Sistko is NOT a graduate of Western Illinois University. He does not have degrees in Art, Engineering, or Hospitatlity. Again, he initially says he “went” there, then later in the video says,“this is where my art degree comes in handy.” Liar!
•Mike Sistko is not a “co-owner” in any way shape or form.
•Mike Sistko and Beverly Herr did NOT own a restaurant in Macomb, IL. He is referring to Chicks on the Square where they both worked, but the place was/is owned by Peter Harman, who owns a number of restaurants.
•The food ideas are not hers. Go look at the Chicks menu. They are disturbingly similar. Look up the menu and pictures of food that people have posted on urbanspoon, and it's the EXACT same stuff that Dirtys posts pictures of on their website, and the employees post on food review websites with the same pictures. Sure, the names are slightly different (ie., Chicks "Lip Spud" is Dirtys "Stud", "Lip Pizzadilla" is the "Dilla", "Loaded Baked Potato" soup is the "Baked Potato" soup, "Lips" are "Sticks", etc.), but if you look at the detail they are the exact same dishes. For a detailed example, Chicks has a "Chicks Fries, seasoned waffle fries covered in roasted chicken, cheddar jack cheese, ranch dressing and lip sauce,$7, if you want them with lips add $2", and Dirtys has a "Pile, our delicious seasoned fries smothered in juicy stickless chicken, colby jack cheese and drizzled with our buffalo sauce and homemade ranch,$9." Also, a lot of the martinis are the same. They don't seem like standard martinis but they are the same in both places (Cosmo Royal, Sheeky Cheeky, Wake up Next to Me which is the Breakfast in Bed at Dirtys, etc).
•Mike Sistko says “right now we are in the green.” That’s just not true. In November 2012 one of the owners has even said they have not broken even yet, and this video was shot by a student in November 2011.

Support Beverly if you want, but just know she is a liar!!

Why does it take much to care? And it takes even less to know the truth. Just as I guess you know a lot of truths. And if she was having sex with my husband, I would have listed it above.

I watched the you tube link.....I am betting just by hearing this mike guy talk that this bar will not make it past the summer, The bev lady doesn't sound too much more intelligent .......I would not exactly call her a fat chick.....Sounds to me like you might be an EX employee or her competition who has an ax to grind.....Once again why do you care so much she is saying she owns the business or any of the other "problems" you have with her????? Then you talk about going on her face book page.....You kinda sound like a stalker (if your that into her just ask to go down on her)......I could care less either way, never have eaten there probably never will......I like roc's I go there 3+ times a week....that or I head up to champaign......

Oh my God, Roc's is even worse!! That place has the absolute worst food in town!! But we do have some common ground, Champaign has some good places to eat. Have you been to Dublin O'Neil's? Anyway, the only reason I wrote my comment is because people on this thread called her the owner. So why not set the record straight? And my husband isn't into fat chicks (yes, she is a FAT chick, that video does her justice, if you could see those hams...) and I'm not either. Finally, you are terrible at guessing things. I never worked there, never even had a family member work there, and I'm not in competition in any way. I don't like liars or people who steal others hard work, and think that most people don't either.

Who's "hard work" did she steal???? I hope you are not talking about georgie boys or what ever it was called before, that place was a dog turd...... & BTW Roc's has the BEST food in town (you can tell this because he is jam packed EVER DAY at lunch & dinner) when he used to do the sunday brunch that was excellent as well..... You are starting to sound like one of them bitter old bitches that no one can please....

If you read my original post, I actually say exactly where she stole the menu that she says she created. But I wouldn't expect someone like you to be able to put easily organized thoughts together. As for Roc's... yuck! They might very well have the best food in Charleston, but then again having the best food in Charleston isn't hard!! Who would you be comparing them too? What's Cooking? The little BBQ shack? The Thai shop? Lincoln Gardens? McDonalds? Stiff competition there! Of course they're packed, there are no other options in this God forsaken town. This is one of the only towns where if a chain restaurant opened, it would instantly have the absolute best food in town. And by the way, that's a bad thing.

I read your original post. Also, what does the term 'someone like you' mean, exactly? Do you insult everyone who disagrees with you, or just me? Either way, it's a very poor debating tactic, because it means you have no decent argument to propound.

SHE tells everyone she is the owner of Dirty's. SHE tells everyone she used to work at Chicks. SHE directs people to the video. I recognize that you are speaking from a position of ignorance, and that your words, baseless judgements, and incorrect conclusions support your overblown sense of self importance and suggest that you are simply ignorant. And that's okay, you are what you are. But, you have no idea what I do, where I work, what I own, where I live, or what town I care about. Softball?? HAHA!! Who cares?

It appears that you think I made some reference to your one line comment about Rocs. I didn't.
