  1. So sad that we live in a town where chilis gets best Mexican, panera best lunch and the 99 gets best family place. Maybe we could tear down a few of our lovely gas stations and nail salons/hair dressers and add a few real restaurants. Gross!

  2. I feel the same way as previous poster. The list of number 1 choice is similar to our choice of presidential candidates, we choose them because we have no other choices. Market Basket as a bakery and Dunkin as coffee shop, might as well call target a hair salon because they sell shampoo.
