Mr. Goodcents closing its doors tonight after 12 years in Tonganoxie

October 25, 2010

Mr. Goodcents will be closing its doors for the final time tonight at 1208 Front St. in Tonganoxie.

The restaurant, which has been in Tonganoxie since 1998, will close for the final time “when the food runs out” tonight, likely around 8 p.m. owner Mark Matheson said Monday afternoon.

He said the decision to close the restaurant, part of the De Soto-based franchise, was based on the rough economy.

“The last couple years have really been a struggle,” Matheson said.

Agreed. I was quite sad to read this.

Sad to see it go, especially when it was a healthy alternative to pizza and a high priced, slow service steakhouse. For a town of a few thousand, our options are not good.

Apparently I am the only one eager to see this place go, the last 3 times someone bought a sandwich for me from that place it was all soggy and nasty. Althought I am not sad to see it go, I partly agree with "only1" when it comes to 'Bichelmeyer's and Gambino's'. This is coming from a town that in the 90's had more tanning salon's and movie rental stores than Lawrence and Kansas City combined (maybe overexaggerated). I don't care how much most elderly people (+50) despise McDonald's, it could do some good for Tonganoxie. A friend of mine claim's that a member of city council own's Sonic, I don't know if that is true or not but makes perfect sense. What a CASH COW Sonic turned out to be for him! I think Sonic food is nasty too, but people keep coming back because, what are our options?, expensive, sit down restaurants, or an overpriced grocery store? Who can afford small town business?
