    There are many restaurants in the USA that sell by quantity ( and price ), as long as they serve huge plates, quality is a secondary consideration.

    Just because you open up a fancy restaurant does not mean you will be successful no matter how good the food might be.

    It's easy to blame the community for not buying into the restaurant. But they should be blaming themselves for opening up a restaurant in an area that maybe wasn't sophisticated or knowlegeable enough in this type of food concept.

    Maybe the townspeople should hang your post in the window, although this will perhaps discourage restaurant #6 from opening in that location.

    This reminds me of a location in my area where two restaurants had failed and then a 3rd opened which ended up being a gold mine. I think the location was always good. The prior 2 restaurants failed for different reasons. The first failed because their food sucked, and they were a small local chain and I felt management ignored the restaurant which made a bad situation worse. The second one was a BBQ restaurant which had good food, but serious competition from a popular local restaurant down the road. They were in business a year and then closed suddenly and the location was vacant for a few years before the current restaurant opened. The 3rd is an upscale pub/burger/steakhouse that is far more successful then either of its failed predecessors in that location.

    The people in this town must prefer the other restaurant near the highway that sells gas and has a big EATS sign outside.

    When I think of eats in Texas I think immediately of BBQ. The town of Lockhart has the best dry rub - bar none. Black's ranks first followed by Kreuz. I cannot wait to return. Having said that, the last thing on my mind is Italian if I'm down in post oak country.

    Many restaurant chains in the US are simply heat and serve, no real cooking in the back.
