Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to the menu additions at Jason’s Deli, which include offering a Reuben sandwich. With the loss of Hungry Jacks restaurant, I am now pleased to once again, find my favorite sandwich choice.

Thumbs-up to a break in the clouds – even if just for a day or two – and some decent, warmer weather.

Thumbs-up to Empty Bowls hosting its 15th annual fundraiser. About 930 bowls were made this year, which broke a record.


Thumbs-down on no associate in the Sporting Goods section of the Walmart Supercenter on Navarro, on Friday, February the 8th, even after 5 calls for assistance. Three customers waited 20 minutes for an associate to arrive. There were, however, five associates in ladies ready-to-wear.

Thumbs-down to the cutting down of several beautiful oak trees, located in front of the Victoria Mall. Why were there no complaints? This area was the former location of Capital One Bank.

Paul, Victoria

Thumbs-down to the fact that some popular fast-food restaurants in Victoria serve catsup that contains the sweetener Sorbitol. Sorbitol causes extreme G.I. tract discomfort to some who are unaware of its inclusion in the food product.

[smile] thumbs up to Cimarron Express-the bakery dept. We had a communication/delivery issue at the store and when it involves 3 year olds-it can be a problem! But Cimarron went out of their way to a beautiful solution and we thank them so much!! They have beautiful, unique, and delicious cakes and cookies and all sorts of items-the French family recommends them and thanks them very much!!
