I think they should tear the building down. What do you think? I'm not sure what would go in it's space, but I just don't like it...

I would like to see a Red Robin or Golden Corral come to the old Borders building. Please don't tear it down! Ardie Call

I like Ardith's suggestion. We need some newer restaurants around here. I'd take a Denny's or Arby's at this point!

I'd rather see an original restaurant instead of a chain. I think a Greek place or Mediterranean restaurant would be amazing!

I was recently in Austin, TX and they had this area within the city that was just food trailers. The food was amazing and it was just really cool. Might be better at the west end of Main St, actually. I could see Fiddlestix there as well as other creative folks! The tourist would love it and it would create jobs!
