I remember the old A & W place. Best freaking onion rings on the face of the earth. I totally forgot about Uncle Jack's Tacos. I loved that place!! Used to go eat there with my dad all the time.

I used to live just up the street from Randalls. I remember it well.

Wasn't there a bowling alley just south of Randalls too? I used to bowl on a league there. Lots of good folks in there.

I also remember Confetti's and Empty's for drinking establishments.

How about the Disco, it was next to what is now (or was) Confetti's, it shouldnt count as "Businesses I miss" as I doubt anyone misses it. I canot recal its name, was only open for a year back in about 78.

I never went down there except one time to take some friends there-then I still didn't go in. So that is why I couldn't remember that one, but I do remember a bar there-Then it became an antique shoppe for awhille.
