Back in Amherst - see lots of changes...

I hear that.....a few people have told me never to go to coldstone because not only is the ice cream not that great and ridiculously priced but the owners are just plain "cold" and "stone" faced. No genuine niceness comes from them and they make you feel inadequate. Can you imagine taking a family of 4 there???

Back in Amherst - see lots of changes...

Thought you'd like to know....

Last week a few of us from work went to Bentleys and THAT was a sandwich shop and not a very good one, it was just ok. Yesterday we went to Amatos and have to say it was AWESOME. Some of us had pizza, which was so incredibly delicious & huge slices. One guy ( a big guy) ordered this calzone w/chicken it that was so big, he could barely finish half and took the other half home for dinner, said it was so good. A couple ordered sandwiches that again were so big & filling and you knew they were made fresh. I took home a lasagna for our dinner last night and I've got to tell you ~ we are hooked. Now I know why we used to love going there so much. They changed it around since I was last in there & it looks great, have beer & wine too. The same guy Greg was there with his wife and they play off one another so well it was very entertaining. A good "mom & pop" shop if you will. My hubby & I are going back there for dinner tonight! Excellent food at great prices, definitely worth checking out.

Just moved back to Amherst, NH from the west coast after 2 years & I see A LOT of changes along Rt 101A. Lots of chain stores, which I try to avoid, tons of Dunkin Donuts & I hear the construction going on is for more chain stores!! I was happy to see my favorite deli Amato's is still there but hear it is now called GAmato's. Haven't had a chance to go in yet but was wondering if anyone can tell me ~ are they just as good as they always were? I see they now do pizza too. Also, what is Bentleys about ~ I see they are a sandwich shop. What about Fredericks? Someone said their quality went downhill but their prices went uphill? Appreciate any info.
