Posted 11 months ago

By Josh Barnhart

buffalo-wild-wingsSalina is expanding at a rapid rate and is receiving many new restaurants due to our growth. Over the last few years we have gotten a Starbucks, Long Horn Steak House and Olive Garden. Adding to our new list of restaurants is Buffalo Wild Wings. Its location will be just south of Long Horn Steak House.

    Damn Obama!!!

      What does Obama have to do with Buffalo Wings? Such an ignorant comment. I’m happy for Salina growing, any way possible.

      • salina-HA

        they are saying “Damn Obama!!!” because the only “full time” positions this store will offer will be management, everyone else will hear “sorry about your luck, you can’t be considered full time because then we would have to have health insurance on you”

        • John32070

          No, they just want to blame him on everything possible because it’s the thing to do. Kansas is republican central remember?

          • hank

            Yes who sent one of their Democrat Governor to D.C. to play HHS with no educational background in the field. Smart move!

  • Tator Salad

    Yea, more low paying jobs!

    • Your Mom

      Better than a no paying job I suppose. Just saying…

  • grammato5

    I just want a dang Cracker Barrel!

    • seriously

      Cracker Barrel doesn’t need to come to Salina, they have some real nasty food.

      • momma bear

        that’s one opinion… sorry you had a bad experience, but you shouldn’t judge based upon one cook. but I guess your just like every other closed minded person looking or something to gripe about.

        • serious support

          Dear momma bear,
          Bases on my experience at multiple Cracker Barrel restaurants, which I assume all have different cooks, I’ll quote seriously in saying….”they have some real nasty food”.

          • hotterred

            I’ve eaten at Cracker Barrels all over the states, and NEVER had nasty meal.

    • tutu

      they were going to put one in salina, but their sign stands too tall (over city regulations) so they decided not to. because all of their sings are the same hieght. and they weren’t going to change for one city.

    • Jimmy Williams

      It’s great food!!! If you’re 90…

    • AlmightyWhitey

      Cracker barrell is racist! You’re suppossed to say caucasian barrell.

  • Linda Hurt-edwards

      • PrivateEye

        STARBUCKS IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW JUST SOUTH OF IHOP!! THERE IS ALSO A TACO BELL GOING UP THERE AS WELL!!

        • SmileyJoeDontyaKnow

          Yeah that’s what we need is another Taco Bell and we should have different restaurants besides Taco Bell McDonald’s Burger King Wendy’s energy Starbucks,

          • Your Mom

            You mean like Subway, Quiznos, Jimmy John’s, Long John Silver’s/A&W, Spangles, Sonic, Brahm’s, Taco, John’s, Panchos & Dairy Queen? Not to mention all of the sit down restaurants. Some people will never be happy.

          • SmileyJoeDontyaKnow

            No just your mom

    • RealSizzurpSippa

  • Roger Brock

      • Racen

      • Jimmy Williams

        fart

    • Jimmy Williams

      could you imagine the quality of chicks they would dig up in salina?? i just puked a little.

    • Jk

      Hooters sucks! Twin peaks has better food and hotter waitresses!

      • Your Mom

        Barf. Twin Peaks does not have better food. Chicken fried steak was more like chicken fried cardboard and the fish tacos were nasty.

  • Hunter

    PF Chang’s! I want some excellent Chinese foods not Buffets!

  • John32070

    Bring back Hardee’s. Beside Chili’s would be a good spot.

    • robert84266@outlook.com

      I was a former manager at Hardee’s and they closed due to a nasty suit with the city and salina wanting them to do things that were against the company morals.

      • John32070

        Such as? I’ve heard (not pointing fingers at you, just saying) that it was poor management that caused the last Hardee’s where McD’s is now in Sunset Plaza to fail. I know when I’d go by or go in there wasn’t very much action going on, but yet McD’s is always busy.

  • Hunter

    Thanks for nothing Dennis Lauvered!

  • IYAAYAS

    Waffle house. No further discission is needed.

    • Jimmy Williams

      Knew somebody would throw in the awful waffle. They should build it next to the trailer park.

      • Your Mom

        I don’t care where they build it. I’d be there.

  • momma bear

    yes!

  • LIL

    Ate there last week- end in topeka. We were not impressed. Waste of money.

  • janetfromanotherplanet

    Take your pick: TGIFriday’s, Red Robin, Carrabba’s…….etc.

    • PrivateEye

      Carrabba’s!!! That place is amazing!!

  • PrivateEye

    WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH YOU CLOSE-MINDED PEOPLE?? ANY COMPANY THAT COMES IN GENERATES NOT ONLY GROWTH FOR SALINA, MUCH ADDS TO THE CITY’S ECONOMY!! JUST BECAUSE IT’S A RESTAURANT THAT YOU DON’T LIKE, DOESN’T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO DOWN IT FOR COMING IT TOWN!! ARE ALL OF YOU AGAINST GROWTH & ECONOMICAL IMPROVEMENT?? IF SO, PLEASE MOVE…BECAUSE IF IT WERE UP TO YOU INGRATES, THIS CITY WOULD BE A DAMN GHOST TOWN!!!!

    • Irony

      Thats not really true. All additional restaurants do is take employees away from other low paying restaurant jobs in the area. Case in point when Olive Garden opened several employees at Applebees quit to go work at the Garden because they were paying a little more and had more hours available.. After the new car smell at Olive Garden wore off, those same employees ended up getting their hours cut back and now they are in the same position.

      Personally I like the idea of more restaurants with more selection. Especially Buffalo Wild Wings which I love, used to eat there all the time when I lived in Manhattan. However I am not naive enough to think that just opening a bunch of new restaurants in town is going to bring a bunch of new jobs.

  • ksdad

    Fast food etc is fine, we all have preference, but I like to see some tech companies that will employee 150-500+ workers with higher than fast food wages…

  • hank

    Yeha, just what Salina needs…another service industry. What about some manufacturing jobs. Service is one of the first things to take the hit during a recession and it takes a long time to recoup during the slow growth we have.
