C&J's BBQ is planning for a location at 2112 W Briargate Drive in Bryan. I believe that is close to the Post Office.

Kinda surprised to hear that with a big, new bbq place opening this summer. I wonder how Coopers bbq place will affect the bbq landscape in this town?

About the same way Kreutz did. Go C&J, Fargo and 1775.

Will Geddy Lee be running that location?

You can find authentic Mexican food in town, but people still go to Taco Bell.

Where do we have authentic Mexican food? I'd be interested to try.

Downtown, Blinn, and the hospital employees should keep that place humming.

My point was C&J's is the Taco Bell of Texas Barbecue.

But Raspas El Payasito or Taqueria La Perla are a good start.

C&J's is pretty good BBQ. Dickies (no longer here), Rudy's & Bill Miller are the Taco Bell of TX BBQ.

But, I agree on Raspas and La Perla and the many other local Mexican restaurants that are actually really pretty good.

No, it's not.

And I'll never eat at the new Cooper's because I don't want to have to have my meat dipped in sauce just to make the salt level tolerable.

Yeah, I don't get the 'there's no authentic mexican food' here thing that some people bring up on here. There's plenty of it if you know where to look.

I'd throw in El Sol de Mexico and Taqueria el Sol.

Thanks, I've never tried either of those places. Will have to soon.

I disagree that C&J is the Taco Bell of BBQ - that's a kind of ridiculous statement to make - but I do get the point you're trying to make.

C&J can cook the flavor out of meat worse than anyplace I've eaten BBQ.

Doesn't that mean it's delicious?

Nothing passes up Taqueria el Tio in my mind. Once you get past the need to order in spanish, the weather limitations because it is only outdoor seating, and the occasional stray cat wandering by, it can't be beat.

Taqueria Arandas sells legit trompo tacos at the gas station at the intersection of Briarcrest and 30. They are the best I've found in town.

Yes, substation to replace the one on villa maria on the other side of those new apartments. I think it'll be good to get the substation off of vm but I hope they include some nice aesthetics around the Nash location.

Daiquiri Barn is opening second location at Texas Ave and Southwest parkway. It will be in the shopping center where TruFit is located.

Have they reopened the Harvey location yet? It has a new name, but I'm not sure when it's supposed to open.

Not that I can tell.

And for anyone wondering, Daiquiri Barn is the same folks that have the original drive-thru location on Wellborn behind Northgate, they just rebranded.

Where do Briarcrest and 30 intersect? I thought Taquerias Arandas was in the old Monterrey House on Texas in Bryan.

ETA: I think you may be talking about Taqueria Poblana at Briarcrest and Boonville (FM 158)? Need to give them a try.

The new sign has been up for several months, but nothing else has changed. I ran by there by the other day and peaked through the windows just to check. I'm not sure what the hold up is.

You're right. I didn't know 30 changed names as it came in to town and I had the wrong name of the restaurant.

The tacos there are amazing though.

30 continues into town as Harvey Rd.

Stripes/Laredo Taco. Not kidding. They're a big part of the reason I had to go on a diet.

If they can write a song about your Taco shop and hit #8 on the Hot Country Singles chart, you know they're good.

La familia (I get them from the Barron road gas station location) has pretty legendary barbacoa in my opinion

They seem to have events there but not anchor restaurants from what I can tell. I know I've been invited to events there, and I am attending a catered one next Thursday. But not sure how it works on a day to day basis.
