The Billings location of Johnny Carino's recently closed and now I see that the one in Missoula will do the same. As will the Hooters.

Now, here in Billings, you could argue location for Carino's closure. I didn't eat there often, but always had great food & service there. So, maybe it's a simple matter of competition for the lunch and dinner dollar at that end of town.

In Missoula, it can't be location. Both Carino's and Hooters are on North Reserve which is one of the busiest streets in the state.

And quite frankly, I don't know how Hooters lasted THIS long. Not exactly famous for their gourmet food.
