Another sad day for Fairbanks restaurants

It had to happen eventually. Chili's is open for business. Sigh.

As I've said before, I don't oppose the idea of chain restaurants. I'm just sickened by the sight of a fully pack parking lot for a chain restaurant when Fairbanks has so many lovely eateries that are probably closer to empty. Why not support our local restaurants?

If Chili's has you salivating for Mexican food, why not check out Taco King on the Old Steese Highway? If it's the mixed drinks you're after, I've heard Jalapeno's (you know, just down the road from Chili's) has a good tequila bar. If you're just looking for a good dining value, Hot Tamale on Illinois Street has a steak sandwich the size of your head for about $10.

There are options - you don't need to blindly support the shiny new franchise.

well said...drove past near 9:

I just came across your blog about the office of the president and I think it is really informative for all of your members. You could consider visiting my site about the office of the president to guide your guests towards products and services related to the office of the president. Keep up the good work!
