Hmmm....sounds exciting but I'm all of 115 lbs. and I have never eaten 20oz of anything in one sitting...
I guess the wall will have to do without my mug shot. \:\(

Isn't that the one with the BIG KID in red checkered shorts on top of the building? Wait...that's Big Boy isn't it?

Remember Lums? That was MY favorite! I'm sure they are all gone now! Am I dating myself? Oops...

These franchises don't know what they are missing if they limit themselves to the "South". New Yorkers like to eat too!!

Even places like Sheets in PA won't cross the border to New York which makes no sense to me. That is a great mini mart franchise! I like it much better than the APlus or the Nice-n-Easy mini marts!

PA has better junk food too! Tasty Cakes and Moon Pies. I think you can get those at Tops and some other places but they are not as well known around here and that's a shame! So much better than Little Debbie or Hostess!

Still closed...

In all likely hood, with the economy and people cutting back on things like eating out, and the fact this is not the first fast food place to close in Geneva I'd be willing to bet the allegation it closed over cleanness has very little to do wit it... If it was they would be open by know...

In all likely hood either they MAY have been ordered closed and corporate decided to keep the store closed... Or it had nothing to do with the DOH at all and it was LCJ's choice to close the store... Was there even anything on the door that indicated the state closed the restaurant? If cleanliness was the only factor in closing, I'd be willing to bet they would be back open by know...

I don't think they are closing everywhere. Yahoo has this story about a new menu that they are rolling out in their US stores.

Sonic is awesome. I loved it in the southwest, and gave the other fast food franchises a "miss" because I lived near a Sonic.

Ooooh, yes, DQ - miss them, too. Not to mention Jack In The Box, which I haunted in California.

I don't think they are closing everywhere either, I don't remember anyone implying that. ...but I feel this one in Geneva is closed now because of a decision made by the corporation, or the (if there is/was one) the franchisee...

Actually, Nekoyasha asked in the first post of this thread "Are they all closing?" I just accidentally responded to your post (the last one at that time) when I put up my response. Sorry for any inconvenience that I have caused you! I agree that the one in G-town probably closed due to the utter lack of cleanliness.

Jeez relax... It's not a big deal about the they all are closing comment...

Really think it being closed NOW has little to do with lack of cleanliness... If t was shut down by the DOH it's not a permanent close... For a business to be closed this long has to be the choice by the business whether the business says I cannot afford to be open anymore, or it does not make sense to be opened for whatever reason...

If cleanliness was a reason to be closed for good, then the Geneva KFC/Taco Bell in Geneva would have been closed for good a long time ago...

The fact is like what happened to Burger King, with the economy as it is the local economy in Geneva, and people cutting back on eating out, Geneva's economy cannot support all the fast food restaurants...

It's the economy in general that is in the toilet, not just Geneva's. Have you not read the paper or watched TV or kept up with the stock market? The entire COUNTRY is in a recession, if not yet, a depression.
LJS's was a hole anyway. I'm sure it closed from lack of business but not from the economy in Geneva. More like no one wanted to eat in a filthy restaurant. You don't see Subway, Quinzno's, Wendy's, McDonald's, the numerous pizza places or any other so-called "fast-food"-type restaurant in Geneva closing, now do you?
