Artesia has a serious problem with chain restaurants. Without fail, they are ALWAYS worse than their counterparts in any other city in the free world. I've asked before why that is and was told you can't find people willing to do the job correctly and well in Artesia. Well, if you ask me, all you need is one good manager... More

I wanted my grandson to experience the old style drive-in. It was around 9pm on a Sunday. The parking lot was a little rowdy with loud stereos and folks hanging out.

Went by to try their new Pretzel Dogs. Pushed the button, the guy came on and I placed my order for one each of the Pretzel Dogs. He said they were all out. I said thank you. He asked if there was anything else and I told them I drove there for that one thing and if they did not... More
