It's better than McDonald's but why would you eat there when you can eat the "real" thing for less at Taqueria Guadalupana on Summer ave. I've eaten there at least once a week for the last ten years and it's always great.
My family joined Epping Forrest Club when it first opened back in 1975. We lived in Scenic Hills and it was only a few minutes from our house and my folks were looking for a place to play tennis every single day of their lives. My father made me join the kids tennis league and I really loved playing but I unfortunately had the temperment of Ilie Nastase and John McEnroe at the ripe old age of nine so my father let me quit so he did'nt have to hear me cuss on the court and shame the family. The clubhouse had a full kitchen, full bar, game room, with pool tables and a snack bar. Outside there was a large L shaped pool(wich you can still sort of see in google earth photo)and the lake had sailboats and paddle boats. My folks hung out there every weekend, they were a pretty tight bunch back in those days. My dad and I played tennis there til around 1984 and I never remember going back after that but the place was still in good shape. I rember going back in the 90's to take a look at the place but it was closed up and looked like somthing out of a post apocalyptic "Mad Max" movie scene location. Oh well, I'll always remember "The Club" the way it used to be.
