Thankful that the fast food restaurants are here for families and those of us on a limited income. May we never get so hoity toity that we drive them out.

Rockland is a city that provides us with many incredible restaurant options. Maybe the people’s choices are pushing out some of the fast food chains. Quality always survives. Lack of that only fools people for so long. Rockland is no longer a second fiddle and a fast food town. It’s one of the best food towns in Maine.

Putting a plastic bag over a sign is not removing it. Really classy outfit the colonel's. Guess Trump's economic growth has hit that far north yet.

Well they have lost my business. I always went for the Taco Bell food. Major disappoint, especially after Wendy's could not stay in Rockland and the promised Arby's never showed up. Come to think of it, we also lost Little Caesar's and Bonanza, two others of my favorites.

Hope they offer more delicious chicken  offerings but with massively less fat.
