People complain about growth all the time but if there is no growth, the town will wither and die. I know because I lived in a small town that didn't grow. The stores that I grew up with have closed or moved on. THAT is sad. Living in a small town that continues to grow is a good thing. I remember Wake Forest about 8 years ago and the town was mostly mobile homes. My opinion is that it has improved. Nope, not sad, at all.

Agreed. Wake Forest feels quite vibrant thanks to the controlled growth in communities in and around Heritage. We even have a wide variety of restaurants ranging from the casual Mellow Mushroom pizza place to the slightly more upscale Shuckers Oyster Bar and Grill. Heck, you can even go ethnic during lunchtime with one of the well priced specials at the Tropical Chicken thatís located near the satellite DMV office off of 1A. My wifeís such a good cook that I really donít eat out very often but occasionally Iíll give her a break by picking up a pizza at Little Caesars cuz we both love those little barbeque beef ribs they sell there. Theyíre an excellent Buffalo wing alternative if you ask me. Yeah I guess weíve come a long way from being a glorified trailer park.

Tropical Chicken, eh? Sounds like my kind of place! I will have to check that out - are they open for lunch? I need more lunch places around my area!
