  1. Mcalister’s is one of my favorite “sit down” places to eat in Alexandria, Glad to see one in Natchitoches

  2. Very excited to hear about the new businesses coming to Natchitoches, especially Hobby Lobby!! Another business I would love to see open in our town would be a Cracker Barrel. Not only does it offer wonderful “home cooked food” in a sit down restaurant, but it also has a great country store for amazing gifts as well. Just a thought…

  3. I dont understand why like in most cities that has interstate going through it we dont build up at interstate. All over the nation cities build up around interstate and still have their tourist districts. And its best way to expand and still keep the historic area . WALMART for sure needs some real competition. And with the ball parc near interstate its a great place to put things like go carts,miniature golf, paint guns, video game rooms, indoor trampoline parks, Chuckie Cheese, Ci Cis pizza, Golden Coral. There are hundreds of things. And all increase revenue to city from taxes and more money for some roads

  5. Good. Another opportunity for work in the area of Natchitoches. Sometimes its easy to complain over and over and over again about “roads” and taxes. But what good are complaints without working with your fellow citizen to find resolutions. Depending on politician’s is understandable, as they’ve been voted in but how many city council meetings have you contributed to? How many meetings have you held with fellow citizens of Natchitoches to come up with some community built solutions? Talk is cheap. Let’s get together and do some work ourselves. You in??

  6. the city probably realized that everyone was going to Alexandria or Shreveport
    to eat and shop,way more selection and much better food.

  7. Interesting, since the unspoken mandate for decades has always been to strangle any concept or opportunity for economic growth, thereby maintaining control.

    • Marriane,I had heard at one time someone wanted to build a mall off the 49 exit
      and it was shot down.I do not believe this town wants to or ever did want to go and
      I think we have plenty of chicken and burger joints,we need sit down restaraunts.

      • Matt, like everything else we do, its controlled by those downtown. They have always opposed I49 development because they want people to go into town. Well, how’s that worked for us? All those businesses & restaurants that have closed over the last few years prove my point.
        How great would it have been for HL & the new restaurants to be out at 49? All those Moms coming for ball tourneys, etc? They would love it. As usual, follow the money. Who owned the land? Who negotiated the deal? Everyone knows that businesses at the interstate grab all kinds of traffic.
        I’m glad we’re getting them, but the location is ridiculous.
