A lot of area folk were disappointed when Freddie's was asked to move from its Fourth Street location after being there so many years. Now they are back at the corner of Stanford Avenue in the old Corner Grocery Store building. The first job I had in Danville was years ago working for Joe Taylor there.
The food is good at Freddie's. Now, the next question is when is Captain D's returning to Danville? The former Starbucks building would be a good location. These would increase jobs in the area and empty buildings would be full again. Almost every street in Danville has at least one empty building on it. It would be nice to have a Golden Corral or Ryan's as Cracker Barrel can't handle all the business of a sit-down home atmosphere. The more family restaurants we have, the more business stays in our city. If the city would have picked up on Eddie Montgomery's place, look what we would have had.
