The Latest in Retail, Entertainment, and Development in Raleigh Mon, 24 Aug 2015 02:32:00 +0000 hourly 1 Sat, 20 Nov 2010 07:02:21 +0000 I lived in Atlanta in the 1970s. Ted Turner may be a blowhard and might be insane, but he was a brilliant businessman.

]]> Thu, 18 Nov 2010 12:48:55 +0000 I’m disappointed. I had problems at the Southpoint location, but never the Triangle Town Center location.

]]> Thu, 18 Nov 2010 01:07:11 +0000 The portions were way too small for the prices charged.

]]> Wed, 17 Nov 2010 21:54:57 +0000 Ted Turner is a blowhard and quite possibly insane.

]]> Wed, 17 Nov 2010 20:45:24 +0000 At least the one at Southpoint is still going.

]]> Wed, 17 Nov 2010 19:20:01 +0000 Horribly run restaurant. Service was slow, food was inconsistent, and their prices just kept going up. There is no reason for a lunchtime bison burger, side, and a soda to cost me $17 after tax and tip. On three separate occasions I had large chips of bone in my house-ground burger and on one of those about a third of the “burger” was a mass of fatty tissue with visible blood vessels and bone. I almost threw up when I bit into it. Its the only time in recent memory that I have ever sent food back at a restaurant.

I wanted the place to succeed ’cause I love bison meat but it seemed doomed from the beginning.

Didn’t seem to be much buzz about Ted’s at TTC. I wonder if it would have performed better if its location had been visible from US 1.
