I went to the grand opening & my adult son & I ate at Edna's. We had the briskets sandwiches and a side of the macaroni bake. Both portions were extremely small and price high (considering the portions, your eating off take out containers & plastic silverware & sitting under a pavilion) for the very small amounts. I am more than ok with the containers, plastic ware & pavilion.. but not all included in a higher price with little portions. We both left hungry... I am not a big eater & we were hungry!!! I will give the Mexican restaurant a try before I discount the entire food truck idea. I loved the music by Joe Hand!!! very nice.

We tried it and loved it, also! I had a mushroom quesadilla that was out of this world!!! My partner had a brisket plated he really enjoyed it, also. It was so pleasant to sit out on the patio at Edna's, overlooking the Marsh Bend Trail!

Just got back from Ritas...don't bother! There was nobody there when we got there but we waited over 30 minutes for enchiladas. 7 workers came up to the truck 15 min after we ordered and placed orders that were filled immediately and before any of the Villagers orders that had ordered before them. After 30 min we went to the window and complained. 5 min later we were given food that wasn't what we ordered. We got refunds and left in frustration. Clearly Rita's is there to service the workers only.

Was their order different than yours? Did they call ahead? Could be more to the story than reading above.

Don't you think The Villages is getting a cut of the profits they make and don't they pay rent to The Villages to stay there like all the restaurants???

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.
When Buena Vista only went to the second traffic circle...no Arnold Palmer, no Lake Sumter Landing, no food trucks....we waited and it all came and more.

How many houses the developer builds is not the criteria. How many get bought is......when the critical mass population hits the right numbers they will come......just like they did 15 yeats ago.

The alternative to not having a restaurant nearby, in my opinion is not a food truck. It is a restaurant maybe 15 minutes away from the bubble.

Wink

People need to stop all of the whining..... things will be completed in due time and then all of this fussing will be forgotten.......

You’all should have realized all of this was not going to happen overnight.... if you didn’t then shame on you !!

Edit: why would I want to go eat at a food truck to begin with when there are so many other choices a short distance away????

There was a choice to buy where ever you want. We are on our third home, when we came in 07 there was very little in LSL, and our gps didn’t even show the bridge only a lake.
Most of our time was spent in SS due to more restaurants and things to do. Those of us who have been here for awhile have all waited for things to be built. Yet I don’t remember us complaining about what was not here. One can always move to a more established area, if things are not progressing as one thinks. It’s easy to sell, pack and move, we have zero attachments to any home here.
