A great man & a champion in the BBQ field. He will be missed. Billious
Hands down, the best BBq in Memphis or anywhere . R.I.P.
My first job was with Corky's. I remember Don very well. He was good to his employees. Even re-hiring someone that was fired by a manager when that employee came back and expressed his dissatisfaction with the way things happened. He also gave us Christmas bonuses even though he (from what I understand) was of the Jewish faith. God bless his family.
I think that it is great for an entrepreneur to be able to identify a target market (vegans/vegetarians) and pull together their many resources (finding a ready made food truck) to make it happen. It is not only vital to the success of the business but also the targeted customer that the food truck operator had completed ample research in order to have the ability to cater to that particular customer.
This usually leads the customer to believe "hey, this food truck was made just for me", which allows for a lifetime customer and social media follower.
A Sad day, indeed. I used to work for the family's furniture store, "Donald Furniture Store" back I the early 1970s and have to say Don was always the gentleman, even at that young age. He will truly be missed.
R. I. P. : DON PELTS. YOU WERE ALWAYS A GENTLEMAN.
So sad to hear this when I woke up this morning. I had the pleasure of growing up next door to Don and Linda. Don was sometimes the wackiest guy you'd ever meet, but in a good way. Either with an off-color joke, the occasional late evening visit to our house in his boxer shorts for a short conversation, or just being silly to entertain us kids. He always encouraged me to follow my dreams and be happy. I could go on and on, but just wanted to say we lost a great Memphian and awesome human being.
Good for them !!!!!!
I like it.
I'm a sucker for packaging too; now I know why I like you so much. I even buy old gift boxes.
Wonder what the calorie load is on those items pictured. Looks like a tremendous amount of food on a single plate.
Seriously, the food looks awesome, I'll have to see if it tastes as good as it looks.
My Vegan friend and I go to Wendy's, I eat the Baconator and he eats the box.
Delicious vegan food is one reason why the number of vegans has doubled in less than 3 years. Here are two uplifting videos that will help people understand just some of the implications of this lifestyle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE and http://www.veganvideo.org
anyone besides me not a fan of this location? Neighborhood wonderful but with no frontage or close parking very tall order to survive year around.
If you have seen the lines for Brother Junipers then you know the demand is there for another cafe. And Eclectic has longer hours than Brother Juniper with a dissimilar enough product to attract their own consumer base. And would you really compare Eclectic to ck's? That's like saying Five Guys made a mistake opening across the street from McDonald's.
As someone earlier said, if you don't like it, don't go. I was at the square in its heyday and I for one am glad they are there. The food is good and they are going to have an awesome patio once it is completed. Most mid-towners love patios, so if nothing else, you can have a cocktail and talk about all of what you don't like outside, away from us brain dead ones watching the tv's. I have also noticed that Mr. DeSalvo takes a very strong interest by answering posts here and on Urbanspoon, which I think is a good step towards excellent customer service. Welcome Bar Louie!
It's pretty good, too.
Ditto John Branston. I'm partial to Hwy 49 for nostaligia but going through AL is just faster now.
There's a great recipe in A New Turn in the South cookbook by Hugh Acheson (from a restaurant in Athens, GA) for Boiled Peanut Hummus. Delicious way to use boiled peanuts.
This is for their Second Life store, right?
