I?ve been a customer of Central Automotive for over 15 years. That sounds probably insane since I now live in Georgia, but I do travel to the Central area numerous times a year. The individuals at Central Automotive are highly trained professionals and they will give you good service at a good and reasonable price. In addition, the owners are very active in the local community and are individuals are good character. I highly recommend them for your car care needs.
PROS: Good Prices, High Integrity
CONS: Out of the Way If you're not in Central
My child attended Sugar Babies for a short period of time. As a local child care center, it is good for children who are normal in disposition and mannerisms. However, as a child care center for special needs children, this child care has deficits. Since my son is a special needs child, I had to find facility instead. Overall the staff works with you if your child has problems and the prices are more reasonable than other child cares.
PROS: Good Home Grown child Care
CONS: Unable to deal with special needs children
Central City News is the local newspaper for the Central area. Even before there was an official town of Central, this newspaper would keep us appraised of local news including detailed news of those schools in the accompanying area. While the local Advocate has become very liberal, this newspaper has more of an open mind now and has matured over the years. Currently published on the weekend this newspaper is well worth a subscription and I wish that I had a comparable newspaper now in my own area of this quality for local area high school news.
PROS: Great Local News
CONS: Limited Distribution Days/Area
The Central Market is a small grocery store with a down home feeling. Although it is being literally choked out by the Super Walmart and the Winn Dixie in Central, this store gives you an old time atmosphere and good service. Their deli meat is really great quality and very tasteful and they offer some in store specials that rival other grocers.
PROS: Good Meat
CONS: Choked out by bigger stores.
The Central Donut shop has some of the best tasting donuts around. Even though they are still in competition with the Krispy Kreme Company, they have an advantage in that their store is located out in Central where there is very little competition. The donuts melt in your mouth and they are a very good value for the money.
PROS: Great Donuts in Central
CONS: Out in Central -- away from everywhere else.
I go to the Greenwell Springs Super Stop at least 4 times a year. They offer rather decent gas prices considering that they are the only gas station in that immediate area. In addition to this, they offer basic grocery store items and lottery tickets. Access is easy through to either Greenwell Springs or Sullivan Roads. The pumps work properly and the staff in the store is very friendly. If you're hungry, you can zip through the drive through of Cane's to get some great chicken tenders.
PROS: Good Service for Area
CONS: Nothing Really.
I go to this particular Murphy USA station in Central at least 6 times a year. They have very good gas prices and easy access onto Sullivan and Wax Roads. The main problems that I have had with Murphy is that their gas station is forever busy and you have to wait in line. In addition sometimes gift cards do not work in their machines and will cut off the pumps. Otherwise it is a pretty good place to get gas if you want cheap prices.
PROS: Good Prices
CONS: Problems with Being Busy and Gift Cards
There are not enough words in the dictionary to tell you how great Tony Lee Automotive is! They have taken care of my vehicle in times of extreme crisis when there was death in the family and I needed my car back in a hurry, and they have taken care of my car in times of leisure. Every time I have gone there they have performed high quality service at reasonable prices and have fully explained all details of the repairs giving me options on the types of parts that I could use and so forth. They are high quality service technicians and the owner is a person of high moral and ethical standards. You cannot go wrong bringing your vehicle to Tony Lee Automotive.
PROS: Great Prices, Warranty, Service
CONS: Out of the Way if you live in North Baton Rouge/Baker
I purchased my Toyota Camry at Price Leblanc Toyota. They have a wide selection of vehicles and extremely good prices. In addition to this, they offer a great deal of ?lower end? models of the Toyota?s without all of the ?extras? that bulk up the price more. In addition, I really believe that the sales people enjoy individuals who are knowledgeable about the prices of vehicles come in there and bargain. After haggling a while, the owner of the business notices that we were still in the dealership haggling about the car after we were there for a few hours. He told the sales folks to give us the car at the price that we wanted and then we drove off of the lot. The service at this dealership also is good, and the warranty of the vehicle is also good.
PROS: Great prices, selection, services
CONS: Actually None Worthy of Mentioning
I?ve had my vehicle inspected at J & Js Inspection before several times. They offer good service and are very courteous. The main problem with J & Js Inspection is that the business is located in an area of town now that I do not feel comfortable driving in. Other than that, they are very efficient at their inspections and honest about their evaluations.
PROS: Prompt Efficient Service
CONS: Questionable Area of Town
