As of now, what is located on that side of the road???
When Google made street view, they sent around little Prius's with cameras strapped to the top of them (see attached picture). My guess is they came and took pictures going southbound one day then came back a while later to finish the job. It is kind of funny to see though, talk about there goes the neighborhood!!! If you click this link:http://www.streetviewfun.com/top-100...ws-this-month/ you'll find some hilarious pictures of other street view bloopers. -mmccul

Five Guys is now open. The cashier at Weis told me that if you use your loyalty card, you get .10 off gas at Sheetz until they get their own pumps out in front of the store like Martins does. Then I also heard that the Sheetz at Flowing Springs/Washington Street is closing and moving down 340, next to Longshots.

That is really surprising that the Flowing Springs/Washington Street Sheetz would move. I figured that would be a goldmine next to the casino. Any idea when Weis would be getting gas pumps?

Not sure if this is permanent or not but the California Tortilla is closed. It look slike the walls are bare inside from the condiments so it doesnt look good.

Darn, I wanted to be the first one to let y'all know the Cal Tort has closed! And Pam, the "Burrito Queen" who I believe is one of the co-founders of Cal Tort, said it's closed permanently. They just couldn't make it work financially. Seems strange with more tourists presumably coming to the area soon when the table games start.

Thats very disappointing. I went there a lot from work and enjoyed their food. The atmosphere was much more spunky awhile back, I believe the management changed because all the employees were different from the start. I noticed it went downhill some, but I never expected them to close. Maybe they will reopen at The Commons in Martinsburg; wishful thinking.

Well I will say it was run poorly....The owners of the one in Ranson always seemed to have five people working every shift even when it was slow. I mean you could get by with three people working there at the slow times. I am quite unhappy by this but am not surprised as this area can't have so many fast food restaurants and them all survive. There needs to be far more sit down restaurants added.

@nccolt60 - Yeah, I have $15 on a Cal Tort gift card... I asked Burrito Queen Pam what I'm supposed to do with that now, she hasn't replied yet (but it was only this afternoon I e-mailed her). If I find out, I'll let y'all know.

NOOOoooooooo
I was going to go there Thursday.
I would get the chips with my food and on the way home, one chip mmmyum, I'll have another and sooner than later, they'd practically be gone. Probably should have bought one for the road and one to go with the dinner. Knowing me, I might break into that 2nd supply

Everytime I've gone in to get food, seems like they've been pretty busy.
Thought they did good business. I wasn't up on the staff 'cuz I wasn't in there but a few minutes each time. They've always seemed quite pleasant. Other than Cal Tort, the only other one that comes close is Chipotles' but I don't foresee that happening anytime soon - or even at all? Taco Bell is ok but it's definitely not a Cal Tort. So sad
