Booming Restaurants For $100, Alex

I'm not much of a restaurant goer. But I have dined out more than usual in the last 6 or 7 weeks — Bardenay, Fort Ground Grill. Moon Time, Hayden Capone's, Canton restaurant, Seasons, Outback Steakhouse and (Saturday night), McKenzie River Pizza Co. I had some idea what to expect from the first seven places that I mentioned because I'd been to them before. I could barely finish the breakfast portion at Fort Ground Grill. Mega impressed with lunch salad at Capone's. Moon Time is always good. Service at all the places I ate was superb. However, I was beyond pleasantly surprised to find McKenzie River (405 W. Canfield Ave., Coeur d'Alene) hopping Saturday night when my brother, Frito Ray, I and our wives dined there. It has a bit of the old Rustler's Roost decor at the Hayden location (before Woody built his new place). The place was hopping so much that we had to park in the lot of nearby Olive Garden (which was also hopping). So I have a question:

Question: Why haven't I heard more about McKenzie River, if it's as popular as it seemed Saturday night?
