    That strip mall has had the worst luck. If I were opening a restaurant I wouldn't even think of that place. Now, Smokin Antillers, Buckets, and George's Pizza have all failed.

Rats and mice all up in the place (droppings all over the kitchen floor - they would clean it up every few days which meant sweeping it into a corner).

    Well, I have never eaten at Gumby's and chances are I won't after reading that.

    Ya, I stopped eating there after my old roommate told me this. Of course I didn't believe him so he told me to pick him up after work. I wasn't allowed in the kitchen but I could see the floor with the clean pans (same with bathroom).

    I was told that the store manager was from Wisconsin and he either got intentionally fired or he quit to go back to his home state (roughly 2 years ago) to run a Gumby's there. Either way, I still didn't (and will not) eat at the place even after the store manager left.

    I have so many stories from about the place. 99% of the stories would land my old roommate and or other staff in jail.

    They had a worker that urinated, defecated, and vomited in the pizza and or in the dough mixing bowl. The manager knew about this and even encouraged the behavior.

    Pokey (sp?) sticks would somehow find their way into a toilet after being in the oven. Something about it made the seasoning adhere better to the sticks than using butter, and more cost efficient...

    I never worked for them or witnessed the behavior, just going off of what I was told. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Needless to say, these stories is mainly the reason why I don't eat at a place where I can't see the kitchen/cooks.

    Is that due to Jeff's Pizza taking their business or for being dirty?

    Probably both, but after reading the stories posted in this thread, I'm OK with it now.
