New restaurants

We have two new restaurants that have opened up in town.

Lee’s Landing at 313 W. Cameron with owner, Lee Parsley specializes in cat fish and chicken fried steak.

Rockdale Roadhouse with owners, Lori Baggerly and Angel Drummond, located at 379 N. Hwy 77 in the old Crossroads Restaurant location, has a menu that includes steak and all the trimmings.

Go out to eat at Lee’s Landing and Rockdale Roadhouse and see if you don’t agree that they are quite an asset to Rockdale.

As we continue to have new businesses open in Rockdale it is very encouraging that we are indeed going forward. This is a great town and people who live here appreciate that.

We have great people who take care of each other and we are blessed with the caring spirit of our citizens. I am glad to be a part of this community. I hope you are too.

Until next time I leave you with this: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
