You used the phrase "miracle's do happen" to describe a fast food restaurant. How do you live with yourself?

Indeed. The sandwich I had (a basic roast beef) was fine (definitely better than an Arby's, though nothing that made me go "WOW, I'll never have another's Roast Beef AGAIN"). But the wait was tremendous (and I was the only person in the place...ordering one thing...to go) - and the service fantastically noncommittal even beyond that...

Wish them no ill. Just wish they'd do better...

Wow. I can't believe it has been over two years. And I had more or less forgotten about the various FOB sock puppets.

Rumor is they closed or may be closing soon. I thought I saw they were open the other day, but it does seem like lately the "Open" sign has been off more than on when I've driven by.

I can't say I'd be the least bit surprised. I've actually been in a dozen or more times, but other than the first time or two it has always been empty; maybe there has been one other table eating. At lunch time. I thought the food was pretty good, but it always seemed to me that they kind of blew it when they first opened.

Anyone else seen/heard anything?

It's definitely closed. I work next door and pass it every day when walking back to the Square, and since last week the place has been gutted and there's a gigantic "for lease" sign covering up the main sign at Blair / E. Wash. (Though you can still see the bull's horns, which makes me laugh for some reason.)

They're on State Street. I guess they were doing well. Maybe I'll give it a try.

The premises at 534 State St (between Ginos and Nogginz) does have signs saying it's them, advertising for help and saying 'open in September' but a look in the window makes it look like nothing is in there or happening. That's as of mid-afternoon today.

There still appears to be a ton of equipment at the East Wash location. Assuming they taking that to the new location, they aren't in any hurry.

Are they still calling themselves "famous"?
