Default How About Real Restaurants

When are the real restaurants and shopping centers coming down here ? sure the food trucks are a nice idea
if you are Mexican or like Mexican food, looks to me as they are catering to the workers whom are mostly working with the builders as they seem to be mostly Mexican of course .

Now there are lots of promises but not to much action for home owners still waiting for the golf cart bridge to join from Fenney to Brownwood so we can get our golf carts to Brownwood , but all I here is its coming.

But we can build 300 homes a month or more which seems to have no problem being completed. But as for our restaurants and bridges will still have to Wait and keep driving to 466 as everyone shops at Wal-Mart.

Can I assume you haven't eaten at the food trucks?

You are lucky, when we arrived in The Villages we had to go to Ocala for Home Depot & Lowes...……
Don't be sorry...be happy.

It was open air on Saturday. The sides can pull down, but, I don’t know if they will have any climate control for heat or cool.

Default Rita's at food pavilion

My wife and I tried Rita's last week. Bar none, the WORST food we have ever had at any restaurant. The fly's were the icing on the experience.

We ate there last week. We had chips with steak, brisket sandwich and a tamale and tap water. It was all very tasty. The venue was nice, the music superb and the people happy. Two things I wish were different, the bugs as we went home with several bites and the prices for us were high. It was over $30 for these dishes and we went home hungry....and we're not big eaters. But, we would go back, take bug spray and go for an appetizer before dinner else where. For you with larger pocket books..the food is great and you'll enjoy it for dinner.

The world is changing, upscale food trucks are becoming extremely popular. Many entrepreneurial graduates of high end culinary schools see them as a quick affordable opportunity to be their own boss and live their dream. It's a win/win...the owner doesn't have to deal with all that goes along with hiring and managing a staff and we the public have access to outstanding food at a location that otherwise could be devoid of eating establishments. Put to rest any thoughts that they are looking to dodge legitimate business expenses...they're in it for the long haul and given the long hours they put in very few, if any will knowingly put themselves or their truck at risk.

We live in Marsh Bend and think the food trucks are a great addition to our area. Food does seem pricey and drinks as well. But it's a nice place to drive to in golf cart and meet people, listen to music. Bring bug spray!

I do hope they change out the trucks. We could use pizza and ice cream destinations.
