Travel back with me now, to a time before the pandemic when life was simpler. Back to February, when one of the biggest questions we were considering was what Restaurant may or may not be moving to Yakima and occupying prime locations that lay empty. Now, we've checked again with Chick-fil-A authorities and have confirmed that, in spite of continuing rumors, they do not have current plans to open a location in Yakima.

Speculation is often inaccurate but nevertheless fun. This was evident when we posed the question on our Facebook Page: what Restaurant SHOULD come to town? Yakima responded with a NO-BULL candor. Here are the unvarnished posts from our FB page, with some very great ideas and some very strong opinions. Enjoy!

Whew! That's quite an exchange of ideas and heartfelt opinions and hunger-inducing comments! We'll be posting a link to this article on our Facebook page and I have no doubt we'll garner many more 'post-COVID' comments. Frankly, many of us are now just happy if we can get a seat in one of our favorite restaurants that we've missed since all of the pandemic craziness.
