I worked there, too. That's how I knew you couldn't get more than four stars. The first two years I was there it was great! I loved it. I acheived the highest par level and was even an accomplished skill trainer. Then a new gm made his way in after I had started my 3rd year with the company and I would cry on my way to work everyday because I hated it. It forced me to quit a once-loved job and leave many friends. Thankfully, I keep in touch with them.

Hi i am wendy the new general manager at the waynesville mcdonalds we are working very hard to provide great customer service. we will do our best to provide you with a great birthday party, although we can not give you the whole play place i can assure you, you will  have enough room reserved for the kids and your guest. if there are ever any problems feel free to call me, come buy and see me or email me. store #774-6671,  I think were already making great changes come buy and
see us.

If this is true then why did you book 7 parties on Feb. 14th? My friend had to change her daughter's party because of YOUR mistake and you've given her the cold shoulder since. The invitations had been sent out and then she had to call all the guests TWO days before the party to let them know what happened. Luckily, she was able to order a cake. Not a lot of bakeries around here will let you order a cake only 2 days before an event. Shame on you.

Those little stars on the CB aprons mean 6 months with the Cracker Barrell.  There are several servers with 8 stars.  They must do something nice for their employees.
Nobody has over 4 stars, it's impossible. I used to work there. It stands for the "par level" of each server. They don't do MUCH nice for their employees..

I don't know if it's illegal or not, but they don'y have any business being on the road with cars. I agree, it'll be very unfair for someone to be held liable for those kids stupidity. Parents should keep a better watch on what their kids are doing.

The parents won't care until somebody hits one of them. I know that is horrible to say, but we know it's true.

Is it illegal for children to skateboard on the highway? The outer road is becoming a very popular place for skateboarders again. I hope St. Robert PD will keep a watchful eye from Road Ranger all the way to the VFW. I think it's a bit unfair that if one of these punks dart out in front of me on their skateboard while I'm driving, I'll be held liable. It's also very dangerous that in the evening they are hard to see because they usually aren't dressed in, let's say.. neon colors or anything. Just keep a watchful eye, citizens. I wouldn't want you all blamed for hitting somebody's child even if it shouldn't be considered your fault.  ::)

This place was packed last night when I drove by. It must be great. I can't wait to try it out. I had the little ones with me and I'd rather not try it with them in tow. :S

I have been here twice and it is great!

The Chicken Fajita is SO good and filling. My husband had the rueben once and it's wonderful as well.

The mixed drink "Tie Me To The Bedpost" is THE BEST mixed drink I have EVER had. It's huge too! I was feeling a little on the tipsy side when hubby and I were leaving both times.. oops! :)

Piece of advice... we here in Pulaski County are spoiled. The El Jimador on Ellis in Jeff City is not near as good!

This place is awesome! They make the pizza right in front of you. My kids sometimes like to sneek a peek while they are doing so. Try their greek salad! It is wonderful! Fast, friendly, two thumbs up!  :{:{: They are located at 122 W. 8th St. They are right across from Phelps County Bank in downtown Rolla. Just watch for one way streets!  ::) Their phone number is 364-2669.

Many times I have went.. it wasn't fresh. I think they over charge sometimes too... I should argue but I'm friends with a lot of Country Mart employees..

I used to love our Taco Bell. Now I would rather go to El Jimador for a nice sit down dinner that costs about the same. Not to mention.. the food is better!!

We went for buffet yesterday around 1. I understand that is still lunch time on Sun. However... we... along w/our 3 kids waited to be seated for 10 min. Hostess sat ppl that came in after us in the other door... should've complained but didn't cause I gave her the benefit of the doubt that she didn't see us. She took us a booth and it was still dirty. She said she'd be right back to wipe it off. Then the waitress came to greet us. She also said she would be right back to wipe it off. WELL... five min. later the waitress did return. She started wiping but didn't do a very good job cause I had to point to spots that was still dirty. When we were ordering drinks she kind of "bounced" around acting like she wanted us to hurry... believe me, we werent' taking forever. When seated.. apparently they assumed we wanted the buffet because we had no menus but we had no silverware either. My hubby got our 3-yr-old's food and asked if I wanted to cut it up.. I said.. "with what?" LoL.. He wanted to leave. I said no cause I didn't want to haul the kids elsewhere. We finally got silverware a few min. later when we seen another waitress... Food stayed fresh on the buffet but they kept running out of plates. Then our drinks didn't get refilled as quickly as they should have. I rarely seen our waitress. When I did.. I had to flag her down.. she didn't just stop in to check on us until we were getting ready to leave. But oh well.. I'll still go back just not on a Sun. during lunch.

I only use Wither's Heating and Cooling in Dixon.

Wither's Heating and Cooling is the ONLY one I use. He even came to us on a weekend when it was so hot! Toby is WONDERFUL! I recommend him to all.

If you are in Dixon, Parker's Pretties is the place to go. They have the best prices for hair and nails.

In March we received two new tires on my van. A few weeks ago one of them started bulging out on the inside (I'm not sure of the proper turn because I know nada about vehicles, lol). We did (and always) buy the extra warranty. When we get there they try to tell us that they are going to charge us for the replacement tire! After my hubby throws a fit they say they will prorate it since we have had it so long. He has to literally point out on the warranty off the receipt that THEY are supposed to replace the p.o.s tire for free! The so-called "manager" says that is not thru Wal-mart.. it's thru the tire manufacturer. HUH? What a moron... needless to say after hours of talk with the automotive people it took the actual tire changer to convince the "manager" that he was indeed wrong and Wal-mart was to replace our tire.

THEN, two days later we see a friend of mine broke down on the side of the road with a flat tire. Same brand, same Walmart, same month the tires were purchased.

THEN, two days after that a friend of mine calls me while waiting THREE HOURS for her tire to be replaced. Again.. SAME BRAND, SAME WALMART, SAME MONTH.. Coincidence? I think not..

All three of us had the same argument with the same "manager"!


P.S. The reasoning for the quotes around the word manager is because I feel he is no position of being a manager.. esp. in the automotive field! I miss Luther!

I must take the time to give Big Surf some major props. They shut down one evening a couple months ago for an American Cancer Society fundraiser.

I have only ate at the Rolla Denny's one time. Service was nothing to brag about. It wasn't BAD but it wasn't great either. The food was just ok. It was nothing to write rave reviews about. I can tell you that the Denny's at the lake it wonderful though! They do provide great service and great food!!

We went back to Ryan's last weekend. The server Tonia that was always great to us is no longer there. :( We did get a server named Amy. She was wonderful! Food quality was great. They now have steak and shrimp EVERY night. I'm pretty excited about that. I am so glad they have improved.

good maybe they will offer more for name brand stuff

They can't exactly control what patrons bring in for resale. I think they do offer some good name brand stuff. You just have to be there the day it goes on the shelf to get first pick. :)

The food bar is pricey. You may want to pack and lunch and go out to the car (or use one of their picnic tables) to eat. You are able to leave and come back. A friend of mine takes the kids down to McD's to eat and then comes back. Just keep your wrist band on! :)

They also have non-swimmer prices that are a little steep.

Price guide, rides, etc. are listed on the site:
