sure hope so, that betty austin is a crazy bitch. she even has cameras in the employee's restrooms to see what they do in there on their breaks. She cusses like a sailor, she's no lady at all. Fired one girl for eating a piece of bacon left over and about to be thrown out off a customer's plate because the girl was hungry.

Do you mean bought out as in just the property? If Cracker Barrel bought her property, would she relocate? Yes, Betty is crazy, but most of the other staff there is very nice.

Betty is great. So she uses colorful language and doesnt take junk from her staff. I miss the characters we used to have around town. Now all we have is franchised corporate crap. Once an original town, now boone looks like every other place. Get some thicker skin people. Long Live Betty and The Mountain House!

I was told the land was sold for 8 millon and it was not Bettys land. It would be nice if the Mountain House would find a new place and remain open, a lot of people want it to stay open

The Tempelton's own the land. Cracker Barrel is building on the land where Mountain House currently is. Mountain House is moving, but no word on where yet.

Mountain House is as much a part of Boone as Peppers and Daniel Boone Inn. Betty is quiet a character for sure but a pretty smart business lady to keep this restaurant going for 30+ years. I heard she is relocating her restaurant. I think Boone has enough hungry folks to keep all the best restaurants going for many years to come.

Betty is a nut. Good business woman or not, she is FAR from classy. If success in a small business means living a life with low morals, then count me out!

Well I lost any respect for her as a business woman or otherwise when she was asked about making a food donation to contribute to a community Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago. Her response was something to the effect of that if people would get off their lazy A$$es and work like everyone else that they would not need to be having a community dinner they could have their own... well I hate to tell you Betty but many of YOUR OWN EMPLOYEES utilize these services that you were so quick to talk down about... so what does that say about you as an EMPLOYER? Oh oh pick me! Pick me!! It says that you rake in probably an ungodly amount of money and do not even pay your help well enough so that they can stand on their own two feet then you talk about people who need a little help? Really? Getting a little close to the glass house in my opinion...??

very well said. there are a lot of local businesses that bend over backwards to support the community. she obviously is NOT on that list. selfish, self centered.

Well it's fine if you do not wish to contribute to a cause like that. Just politely say no but I just found her repsonse tacky and judgemental. Many people do not have a choice as she said. They do work hard and do the best they can and still can't make ends meet. Nothing is guaranteed in today's economy. People who never thought they would are applying for minimum wage jobs and seeking help.. Don't be too high and mighty. It can happen to most of us.. quickly.
