Has anyone been there to eat lately. They got a new cook Teresa, I heard she was fired from Riverbend 534. I heard it is really going down fast. As a matter of fact the only other person working there was also supposedly fired from the 534. I think I will stick to Checkerz or Mike and Moms, not worth the drive out there.

Mike & Mom's has improved their quality of food and customer service.

Checkerz has good customer service but the quality of food keeps declining and the prices keep going up. The salad bar is always empty and needs more variety. Their plates need to come with one additional side and make it more appealing to the eye. Most importantly, improve the overall taste of the food.

The Front Porch has the best quality of food and customer service of all three restaurants. BUT, they need to not only add more choices of their sides but also not run out! Also, I've been their several times and have left hungry because their plates are skimpy.

I went to eat there when it first opened and yes the food and service was great. The last time we tried to go they were closed and then open that's when I heard some people had quit and they hired some of these others. Guess rumors are just that, but I don't want to drive all the way out there again to see. @customer yes, Mike and Moms has imporved their service and food, haven't been to Checkerz in awhile, but I intend to go check it out.

Wow I used to be a faithful customer but I just ate there yesterday and I took one bite and almost puked the meat was rotten and when I told the owner some big guy he said if I don't like there food don't eat there it's bad enough when your hamburger is rotten even worse when they don't care. Screw this place I'm gonna stick to sweeny now they have good food.

They are closed again. We went by there to check out the food and there was no one there at 7pm last night. Guess they decided to give it up. Oh well back to Alice or OG to eat.

Your cousin should have reported that to the health department so no one else gets sick. I know I would if it were me. That's just yucky.

Seems to me like they need to get a new manager and a new cook, there is no excuse for putting out food that makes someone sick. That means they don't have enough business to keep fresh meat, etc on hand. As for what the owner said to blackgold, that is just wrong. When you are in the restaurant business, it is your job to make the customers happy and serve them good and safe food, not tell them to go somewhere else if they don't like it. That kind of attitude will kill any business they might have.

Front Porch is gone. Heard the food and service was crappy to begin with and the owner didn't want to run a restaurant anyway.

Checkerz, well, has anyone else thought that maybe thats just a front for some "business" that the owner and his girlfriend run that has absolutely nothing to do with food? Girlfriend looks and acts higher than a kite when shes seen anywhere in town (and it doesn't matter what time of day it is). Why would she leave her teaching position at the school to be a waitress/pizza delivery driver if she was sober and cared about her kids? See it for what it is, a little common sense goes a long way in figuring it all out.

Do you ever say anything that is nice? You must be the most unhappy person in the city limits. Of course I say that because you are obviously better read and better bred than the rest of us uneducated low life trash who live in a part of town that is not up to your standard or we live outside the city limit and are immediately considered trash that blew in from God knows where. What do you contribute to society? Certainly not a pleasant personality. You don't radiate happiness or good will, you have a modicum of intelligence and and a vile spirit. You are pathetically cruel and hateful.

My husband and I also went there last week, to say the food is bad is an understatement. Our burgers were also dry and over cooked, and the onion rings were greasy and tasteless. I also thought ppl were being mean, but agree now not worth the trip or the money.

its funny. Get ur facts straight before u post lies. I know her and she didn't get fired from the 534 she quit cause she walked into the kitchen when the owner dumped all the utensils all over the floor looking for the can opener. Then expected her to clean up his mess. When he used the can opener last. Then yelled at her for it. Would u of quit too?
