Will your HD Allow you to have a Trailer Pit under some sort of Lean-To or Shelter that could help you out with meeting demands?

That seems like an awfully big TV for that size space. Be careful that you don't run off any customers with it. I think that most people who go to a restaurant, as opposed to something like a sports bar, go there to eat and not to watch TV.

They tend to keep me away from some restaurants. Plus, do you really want customers to hang around after eating, filling up your tables watching TV?

Agree with both above, not sure why you'd want to add a TV...

I would pass on the TV. Our pizza hut just did a remodel and now they have several tvs and it has a sports bar feel to it. It's a cold atmosphere now instead of a nice warm one.
Several people I know like the old place a lot better.

I would spend money to help things go smoother & easier for you instead of $$ on a T.V.

TV's in dining establishments are ok if there is a separate bar area and enough seating to accomodate people that want to sit for a while.

Seeing as your place has very limited seating, your goal is to turn the tables over as many times as possible, as opposed to making an atmosphere of having people hang out longer than it would to eat their meal. People will sit around for hours on game day taking up tables that other guests will need/want.

If they ever make an app that allows aroma with the posts, I'm done.

There is a fantastic BBQ place just about 2 miles from my work. They do an unreal amount of business, and it is small. Seating is at a premium, although they do have a little screened in area where you can seat about 20. You might can seat 20 inside, but I dont think so.

They do brisket, pork,ribs,hot links, and chicken. Sides are potato salad, cole slaw, and beans. He has two different pies for desert. You can get sandwhiches or plates. The most popular thing ordered is the 2 meat plate. You get any two meats with two sides, and a drink. The price is $17.39 per plate. He sells out of food every day. Most popular plate is Brisket/Hot link, with potato salad and beans.

Anytime you talke to someone about the place they will say the food is fantastic, but it is expensive. But the thing is they go back time and time again. Point is he turns those tables as fast as possible, and doesnt try to do everything. What he does he does right, and he is seeinig the rewards.

Sounds like you have the same opportunity, and that is great news.

I would guess this is ok to post this link. But it will give you an idea of what I am talking about.

The way I read it he already ordered the TV and was about to have installed, so reading posts about it being a bad idea are of little use at this time. Just my $.02

Not a big deal. I am sure he is just busy

Great thread! I stayed up way to late last night reading it.

I've often been told to open a restaurant but knew it would be a hard go. Nearly impossible for me with no capital.

Reading your thread confirms what I've heard all along you have to have the capital up front and reserves to sustain for a year to make it as a restaurant.

Seems like you've gotten a great start after a miserable beginning. Best of luck!
