We had dinner here tonight with a group of 14 from Elon. We are in town for parents weekend and the restaurants in Burlington were too busy to give us a reservation. Kimbers has good food and great service. Our waitress was very attentive and the group was happy.
I usually wouldn't rate a place like Subway. I also usually wouldn't come to one unless this was my only option. However I must say thanks to this location for several reasons. The Subway here supports the kids and community where I work. MOST Friday's we do "Subway Friday" here at Eastern Guilford High School. It has been ongoing for maybe 5 years. Our Occupational Course of Study students will collect orders and money and come to this location and prepare our subs. They then will deliver them room by room. This is essential for these students as they need service hours/work to complete requirements for their diploma. It should be noted that most businesses will shun the opportunity for kids to work at their establishment to complete this requirement. I can understand how this would be a hassle to them. A lot of potential headaches are evident. Kudos to this Subway and Tim the manager. Since the orders are usually large in volume, we get a great discount. Five dollar subs are usually less than that, tax included. This location is also a sponsor for our athletic department. I am not sure of the sum they give, but they are on our programs, banners, etc yearly. For the second consecutive Friday, our school has not done "Subway Friday" for testing, assemblies, among other reasons. I was not aware of this and showed up to work with no lunch. So naturally I drove to the closest place. This is it. Tim honored the discount that I usually receive even though he received just my order and not the 50 he usually gets. He saw my staff shirt on and rang it up. I didn't ask for this either time I have been. Thanks! I appreciate the goodwill and community support. I think they should get recognition for this and Yelp is the best way I know how. Even to a chain restaurant like Subway, small things like this can go a long way. It sure has gotten my attention. The sandwiches are consistent with every other Subway. No problems and issues. This Subway will continue to get my money. Thanks for supporting kids and impacting their lives in a positive way.
