I have been hearing rumors that the Perkins Restaurants in Monfort Heights and Highland Heights are going to be closed and reopened as Frisch's. Can anyone else confirm this, or is it just a rumor?

Hard to believe that just two summers ago, WGRR's Chris & Janeen from the "Married with Microphones" morning drive show did live remote broadcasts from all of the Perkins locations in the Tri-state. Sigh... I rather like their food.

Yeah Perkins is really good, except I don't think it was a good idea to have a Perkins built down the street from Bob Evan's... Which is much better, and has a better atmosphere in my opinion. Perkins is always dark it seems.

Perkins seems to have been declining for a long time now. I'm shocked that they've lasted this long. They seem to have been slowly disappearing though....

Anyone know the status of the Perkins at Rt. 42 and I-275 in Sharonville?

Then Frisch's is doomed. I much prefer both Bob Evans and Perkins to Frisch's which I think is stuck in the '70s. Over the years, I have seen Bob Evans take over the fast food position once held by Frisch's.

Anyway, I am sorry to see Perkins close down. I have always enjoyed their food and particularly their pastries!

If the choice is between Frisch's and Bob Eveans, it's Bob Evans for us! Bob Evans is the closest of the three retsaurants to our home, so we usually go there. There was a Frisch's here in our township some years ago, but it closed. But, then, so have the other 3 places that moved into the building when Frish's left...

To me many of the Bob Evans are Cracker Barrel wannabes. Ever since Bob himself became too old to remain active in the business I have felt they also have decreased in value. And their Mimi's Cafe spin-off is something to avoid - so-so-food, no wait that would be a compliment.

I also feel it is sad Perkins is experiencing a decline. For many years they delivered good food and value. The comment about appearing dark inside is valid, as they milked the facilities too long without redecorating. The darkness is from everything yellowing with age.

Many keep predicting the demise of Frisch's. But from what I can see from their financial reports they just keep steadily moving along. And their menu offerings are the largest selection in their history. To me, locked in the 70s is not all that bad. I know our local store is currently producing a better quality product than they did 30 years ago. If you keep the quality and service up you will likely keep going.

Near me in Mason is what I believe one of the largest Skyline Chili stores in the area, on Water Park Drive off Beach Boulevard. It was originally constructed I believe as a Steak and Ale, which was short lived and went kaput. Sat empty for a period of time prior to someone obtaining the property and a Skyline franchise. Building is much larger than a typical Skyline. Rarely have I seen it filled even close to capacity. Right next door is a Bob Evans, one of the country store type layouts. It also usually has a predominantly empty parking lot. My point - give me the Skyline. Their overhead and operating costs is a major factor why they have been so successful.

I agree...if Frisch's is caught in the '70s, or even the '60s for that matter, so much the better. There is a creepy sameness that so many restaurant chains have today. I think there is a lot of truth to the comment that Bob Evans is a Cracker Barrel wannabe. Why not just be Bob Evans?
