    2) More importantly, chain restaurants do little to enhance a community's character as unique and distinct. If your place is like every other place, then there's no reason to go there. I hope Ruston aspires to be other than just Bossier or WM with a university.

    3) These things are not mutually exclusive. A city can have franchise restaurants AND local joints and support both. Sometimes you want a farm-to-table bratwurst with artisanal goat cheese. And sometimes, you just crave a Whopper.
    And your points are well-taken. Yes, it is best to have a nice mix of business types. My point was merely to point out it is erroneous to say franchises are NOT locally owned.

    Ruston has good local. Support them. More important now than ever.
    Ruston needs EVERYTHING! It's time for Ruston to grow up a bit.

    Ruston definitely needs a good spot to eat breakfast on a Sunday morning. The Waffle House is not good......

    Give the one on Farmerville Hwy south of I-20 a try. I think it's better than the one on Tech Drive. Huddle House can be good but I've found it lacking in service if you're not a "regular".

    Can you define good breakfast? Not trying to be a smart ass, just curious on your opinion.

    Waffle House quality is inversely proportional to cleanliness and service.

    That looked great on the Yelp app, but like you said, not opened on Sundays. There were several that looked promising including Log Cabin, Grown & Grazed and even Champ's Sports Bar. But as we drove around looking - nothing was open on Sunday mornings, except Waffle House. Granted Huddle House may be better, but we weren't smart enough to see that one until after we ate.

    Are we really getting a McAllister’s and new McDonald’s in front of Walmart? What else is going there?
