Unk's On The Agenda Again

The future of a downtown Greenville restaurant, which says it will have to close if city council doesn't take action,could be decided Thursday.

Unk's restaurant owner Jeremy Spengemen is awaiting city council's decision on an ordinance that would allow his restaurant to be in compliance with Greenville's definition of a conventional restaurant.

Unk's request for an amendment comes after months of deliberation to reach a compromise between the state's definition and the city of Greenville's zoning regulation. The council delayed the decision a few times.

The item is on the agenda for the Thursday Greenville City Council Meeting.

    So i see that the moderators didn't like what I had to say to Mr. Dave. So I'll see if I can repeat it a little more appropriately. Dave the DA....if YOU don't like this town and the people here then YOU can leave. It's honestly that simple. Now goodbye.

    I love Unks. Sure they serve alcohol and lots of it, but they do serve great food. They always have awesome live music. I even took my parents there when they came in town my senior year of college, and they loved it too!!! Good luck to Jeremy Spengmen and all the Unks crew. You guys make greenville greenville!

    Unk has always been my favorite doctor.

    It is not all fast food in Greenville. Just look at the amount of well known non-franchise resturants there are around Greenville. Plus, when I was at ECU, I cooked at the house (grilled out about 90% of the time) about 5 times a week and enjoyed it with some friends and the lady there without having to spend extra money by going somewhere. As far as fast food, that is not appealing to me. Most of it is greasy and some of it looks just plain disgusting. I do wish Spengmen the best of luck in keeping Dr. Unks open, considering that is probably how he makes his living. This horrible economy has probably affected him a lot I would have to guess.

    Dave: We know that you are an unhappy troll here seeking to satisfy emotional angst by baiting locals. However, try this FACT on for size: Your home state of Pennsylvania has a higher percentage of alcohol users AND illicit drug users than does the state of North Carolina. Don't believe me? Look it up at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website. That is, assuming an English graduate stduent (lol) knows how to do a little basic research. Doubtful. Facts are a funny thing, huh?!

    Well, if they would offer different food, more people might come. Last time I went, there wasn't much of a selection. Most people see it as a place to drink and hear music, not eat. DAVE, please don't categorize EVERYONE that lives here for eating fast food and drinking alcohol.

    I agree Allen; don't people in Greenville cook at home? All these locals do is eat fast food and drink alcohol.

    I hate that they stopped serving lunch. They had some pretty good food there for a fair price. Good luck Spengemen!

    Hasn't everyone realized that all this town cares about anymore are chain restaurants? It's a shame that so many privatly owned businesses and dissapearing.
