Re: “We can do better, Little Rock

Fast, Cheap, Tasty. You can argue the tasty part, but still. And it's open for breakfast.

I've been to South on Main several times, and it's been, for the most part, on the tasty side, but never fast or cheap. No one is asking themself, "Should I go to Chick Fil-A or South on Main?" I mean, they're both food locations, but people go to them to eat for different reasons.

Should people eat local, and eat there more often? I'm on board with that. But in place of their Chick Fil-A I think preparing your own food is the better alternate option, and that's still shopping local.

Re: “Fletcher pulls a fast one: Rocket 21

The decor inside is full of Fletcher-endorsed Blue-Dog-paintings as well. I love the restaurant - the food is great, Donnie is incredibly gracious and the staff is polite - but it's weird to see such a fine place with those kitschy, tacky paintings everywhere you look.

Re: “Food Truck Friday takes bite out of business: UPDATE

I work in a building very close to the Food Truck event, though I haven't eaten at any of the trucks over the past two weeks. Maybe next week!

I am all for occasional food truck promotion. Give people more options! Smart businesses and quality restaurants will improve their business model or offer competing sales, which in turn should result in customer retention and appreciation. I heard through the grapevine that Cotija's offered a $1 Taco Promotion today. Good for them! I love that restaurant and all the people who work there are super polite and the food is very tasty and well priced.

I can't help but look at the complaints and roll my eyes. I will weep no tears over Subway, and the other places have real issues that could be addressed before I worry that a food truck is hurting their bottom line. Hey Lulav, I bet taking two hours for lunch is probably hurting your bottom line too! Sufficient Grounds, I bet charging $5 for a refrigerated piece of quiche is causing you some lost sales!
