TDR had an editorial about economic development, and the multiple ways the mayor-elect and some members of the city council want to go about it.

millina, The movie theater on 5th St. beside Winslow's Restaurant was White's Theater originally, then became the State Theater. It was the State Theater when I was growing up & I have many fond memories of going there. In the sixties, urban renewal took out five points (Dickinson Ave.) and the parking lot was constructed beside the library. After several years of closure, the theater was re-opened and the name was changed to the Park Theater. This theater has been purchased by the city with hopes of securing funding to restore it. The front facade will be pretty much restored to its original look ,except the entrance will be at street level, and the inside will be reconfigured for different types of shows & performances. It will not be restored to its original look. The theater you might be thinking of on Evans St., almost beside Cubbies where the parking lot is now was the site of the Pitt Theater. It was one of the largest & nicest theaters in the area, but sadly to say it burned down several years ago. I can't recall how long it has been. If you are interested in some of the history of Greenville, you should go to Facebook & go to (You Know You Grew Up In Greenville, NC, If...). There are lots of photos of some remarkable old buildings, many of which no longer exist, including the old theaters. Also lots of comments about what Greenville used to be like. I find it really interesting & think you might enjoy it too.

It is going at the LoneStar Restaurant location, let's hope they tear that building down and build.

They will not be tearing down the existing building, just planning to renovate it.

I think a Dave & Busters would do great in this town. We all know people in this town obviously do not cook because the restaurants are always busy...every night, but we lack something different to do like Dave & Busters can offer with the entertainment. I wish I had enough $ to invest & open one.

The Mongolian place might take the Mongolian House on Greenville Blvd down once they open. it looks to be a much nicer version of that restaurant. I've never even been there b/c it looks so run down on the outside, but I've heard it is good but a little pricy.

I've been to a HuHuHot restaurant in Missouri before. It was pretty decent. Reminded me of Crazy Fire in Raleigh. However, Mongolian Empire on Greenville Blvd is much better, even though they have less of a selection on the buffet. The sauces taste more authentic and the food seems to be of a better quality.

Mongolian Empire can be pricey for dinner, but for lunch, it's about $6 per person for the buffet. When my wife and I get take out for dinner, it's around $16 for the both of us.
