Sorry to have to burst your bubble but i thought you might wanted to know before you have to eat your words....
I said WITHIN 7 MILES OF THE PROPOSED SITE, NOT METRO AREA. If Macon only has 370,000 within a 35 miles radius then it will be at least 2015 before you get one. Greenville has over 1,000,000 within a 35 mile radius and we are just now getting one.

Really any Chinese restaurant in the US is "American-ized" food.

It has nothing to do with "chain" versus "locally owned". Many so-called chains are really just franchises owned by local business people. It's ridiculous to say that the food is any fresher due to the ownership of the place. Most restaurants use large food suppliers like Sysco and also local providers, regardless of who owns the place.

I will never understand the bias some people have. I patronize where the food tastes good and the service is pleasant and efficient. If that's the local Applebees, so be it. I've eaten in many so-called local joints where the food sucked and so did the service.

Well we will shall see who gets one first.....lol how about that.... Macon's Metro would probably have over a half million if the US Census would include the true Metro countries that has economical ties to Macon instead of trying to spit the metro up.....

The True Macon-Warner Robins Metro Area

I had to laugh at this...
The Augusta Chronicle had this big story about an IHOP opening in South Augusta..
I mean to hear these people talk... you would have thought it was a La Cirque or The French Laundry. I mean they may even have paper placemats...and that's a step up for dining in South Augusta.

Seems like South Augusta is desperate for some retail. They don't care what restaurants move they, as long as they don't have to drive 7 miles for dining.

Not true.. go into many ethnic neighborhoods in bigger cities and you will find authentic ethnic cuisine.. Want great Chinese food in NYC? Then go to Flushing Queens.. not the touristy areas of Chinatown. Want great Vietnamese Pho in Atlanta?.. go to Buford Hwy.. not Doc Cheys.
