Well, it didn’t take long for Monty’s A Taste Of The West to close before the heavy equipment moved in and began digging up the parking lot. What for? I don’t know. The building seems to be still intact – just the parking lot is being renovated, for some reason. I’ve heard rumors that IHOP (aka International House of Pancakes) will be moving in. That would be cool, and perfectly located. And come on – if Kalispell & Bozeman rate an IHOP, then so should we!
And today two people asked me if I had heard that Sonic was coming to Great Falls. I’m not a huge fan of Sonic, but everyone that I’ve talked to about it so far is pretty excited, with each person rattling off their favorite beverages that they plan to buy as soon as it opens. The rumored location: 57th Street, near Malmstrom. If we do get a Sonic, it looks like it would be the only one in Montana…but with our unique population of Malmstrom airmen from all over the country, I think it would do well. Lots of people homesick for Sonic.
So…anyone able to confirm/deny these latest restaurant rumors?
