Re: “Cheers & Jeers: From Boulevard to Brunelle

Franke's is my go to place for lunch many times. You can't go wrong with any of their vegetable dishes. Had their fried okra and pickled beets just last week. Their panko-coated fish is very, very good also.

Re: “MAPCO tries to gussy up convenience store; fails

Laughing, Dan. Well, the truth is, that when all of the residential housing that is being built downtown fills up there will be a need for another gas station. And the one school downtown, won't hold all the children who live in the area and those who come to work with their parents from outside areas too. So gas will be used as parents transport all these kids either out of the area to schools or into the area to attend the estem school. Not to mention the residents who don't want to drive all the way down Main St for a gallon of milk at 10 at night. They'll want something closer and more convenient.

Re: “A bathroom for the Big Dam bridge — what an idea!

Um, okay, get the restrooms built...but then, who's going to maintain them, clean them and provide security for them?

Re: “MAPCO tries to gussy up convenience store; fails

I disagree DanLimke, on the need for another gas station. I work in that immediate area, and I cannot count the number of times when another gas station would have come in very handy. On top of that, with the increased pull of residential living in the downtown area, there is going to be more need of grocery / convenience stores for the residents. The Food Giant on Main isn't going to be enough.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: Sky, Swan, and Seattle

Meant to post this earler, but its been a very busy week. Had a good lunch with my sisters at the Capitol Bar & Grill a week ago. Had the porkbelly pastrami sandwich which was a tad fatty, but had great flavor. Unfortunately, one of my sisters didn't enjoy her winter vegetable soup, she said it was so salty it was inedible and sent it back...didn't want anything to replace it. My other sister had the Cobb salad...she seemed to enjoy it...so it was a hit and miss kind of day.
On the other hand had dinner with everyone for my mother's 80th birthday at the Olive Garden (her pick) and everything was pretty good. I had the papperdelle pescatore which was pretty good. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals as well.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: Sky, Swan, and Seattle

Had a pretty decent catfish lunch with greens and black eyed peas (and a cup of seafood gumbo) of all places at the Doubletree downtown. catfish was nicely seasoned, crust was crispy and not over salted. Greens had just a bit of a bite to them from some kind of pepper sauce.

I have never been to the Ozark Country Kitchen, and now I never will.
