And I didn't realize there was one in Greensboro! When I first saw the one in Danville years ago I didn't realize it was chain. Albeit a smaller, more regional chain. But yeah c'mon to Martinsville!

I think you guys are right. This is designed to be provocative. I think they would like to see riots and fist fights before every episode. It starts from a very different place than GoT which was a much-loved book series before it was translated to TV. This is blatantly designed to exploit racial politics for cash. It's sick.

Agreed. It's just uncalled for. In an age where we are already having issues with civil unrest, this just throws more gasoline on the fire.

Skinsguy-

A "Kickback Jacks" location there is a good idea! The one is Danville is very good, both in food, service, and atmosphere. There is also a popular one in Richmond. Both are very successful! Putting one up there would steer away the dollars of Martinsville/Henry County consumer travelling out there and keep those dollars in town.

I remember eating at Kickback Jacks in Danville a few years ago, and loved the atmosphere. I've eaten at the one on Battleground down here in G'boro, and it's a great place. Great atmosphere, and fantastic place to go and watch the big game. And, they serve a variety of foods. We were going to go Saturday and eat at the new one in High Point, but wound up just sending the wife out to pick the food up and take it home. If Kickback Jacks has continued to do well in Danville, no reason why it wouldn't do well in Martinsville.

I didn't realize Jack's had one in Richmond. It is a very popular spot. The one on Battleground is packed on the weekends, especially Saturdays.

Do you think they'll have any knowledge or care of college football or higher education sports? If they do then they may get to the root of the development and denigrate our athletic foundations!

I really don't know why anyone would make this unless it's political.

Don't know either. It's throwing more shade toward the south.

I agree with Solon. The building is setup to be a steak house. The establishment would need to survive on having ABC on the premises. No fast food, no breakfast food establishment. There would be a significant amount of renovation that would have to take place to turn that building into something like a Five Guys or a Denny's. Those places would be better served building their own buildings from the ground up.

And, no, please don't mention Macaroni Grill. Ours in Greensboro just closed up. It wasn't that great. In fact, I was quite disappointed in their food. Our MG was located right there at the Friendly Shopping Center. If it can't survive there, there's no way it would ever survive in Martinsville. A place like Kickback Jacks would be perfect for that location. I'm assuming it's doing fairly well in Danville, and we just opened up a second one in our area (in High Point off of 68.) My wife and I love that place.

You guys would love it if a Mac's Speedshop moved in there. They have the best smoked wings you'll ever sink your teeth into. Their burgers are pretty good as well. Some places bring out complimentary bread to you, they bring out hush-puppies! They have a large selection of craft beer and macros as well. The place is setup to kind of look like a biker's bar, but it really is a family establishment. We've taken my little 2 year old there quite a few times.

If this was an empty fast food building, then you could definitely think about moving in some other fast food chain, but you don't want to do fast food in that location. It would be a waste of a perfectly good steak house building.

Politics / Re: 2017 Virginia Governor's Race

Ed Gillespie and the Virginia GOP are slamming LG. Ralph Northam for not being rural. This is pathetic.

Ralph Northam is from the Eastern Shore, where there are possibly more chickens than people.

The GOP Party leaders made video before the debate trying to "help Ralph when he comes to rural Virginia"! The video was set around the fact that he wont know where it go when he comes down I-95 into 'Bath County'.

The problem is..... I-95 is on the complete opposite side of the state! I-95 runs through the Eastern part of Virginia, whereas Bath County is the far left near West Virginia.

And who is more rural? Again, Ralph comes from the sticks in the Eastern Shore. Meanwhile, Enron Ed is based in Washington, D.C. with a Virginia mailing address.
