Parked downtown on Saturday — when I returned to my Jeep, I saw this:

Hoagieville: The Good, Bad, Ugly

Let’s talk about Hoagieville — it’s a Missoula-based restaurant that opened a store in Great Falls a couple of months ago in the spot that used to be KFC on 10th Avenue South. Here’s my review of the Good, the Bad, and Ugly!

Hoagiveville in Great Falls

First, the Good: the staff is wonderful — every time I’ve been in there (about six or seven times so far), the crew is happy, pleasant, smiling, and courteous. Service is speedy, too.

On one of my visits, after I ordered and they were nearly done getting my order ready to go, I realized that my wife might like some of their mushrooms, so I told the cashier that I’d like to add an order — she called it out to the back and started to ring it up, but the manager (or owner?) who was working the grill told her not to ring it up, they would just throw the mushrooms in for free. Very nice touch.

Feeding The Sheep!

We stopped to visit these two cute sheep a few days ago — they came trotting right over, expecting to be fed, but sadly I hadn’t brought any Sheep Chow with me. So I improvised — just plucked a few flowers/weeds — and the sheep gobbled them down! Next time I’ll remember to bring them something a bit more tasty — anyone know what kind of flowers taste the best (in sheep terms)?

New SBX

Getting closer to the opening of the new Starbucks in town — one of the managers at the current store told me it should happen on September 28th.

The new store is at 10th Avenue South and 32nd Street, kind of across the street from Van’s.

Once it’s done, there will be FOUR Starbucks locations you can hit along 10th Avenue South – kind of. Starting from the west — there will be the new one, the mini-SBX inside Albertsons, the “main” one at 9th Street, and another mini-store inside Barnes & Noble in the Marketplace.

For some reason, it seems kind of unbelievable that the main store is more than 9 years old – wow. It was fun going to the grand opening – but it just doesn’t seem like it’s been *that* long.

And where does that leave us folks who live on the NW side of town? Come on, Starbucks! You can squeeze one more store in our town — just set it down somewhere along Smelter Avenue, and everything will be fine :-)
