I saw the pier drilling crane for the footings yesterday as we drove by. I figured no way that's for a strip center.
Saw the same thing. Never seen footings like that for stop center

I'm referring to the construction by the other strip center & gas station. Unsure of the construction next to the feeder.
I heard a rumor that it was going to a 2nd Dutch Bros Coffee

Welcome to College Station and our two lovely water towers...


Not to worry, it won't even be noticeable. Per Mooney's request, it will be disguised as a tree, surround by an overly dense forest of baby trees. It will be the envy of the climate change crowd!! All is well!
But will there be bird houses?

I'd be happy to start a petition to have it painted like the one in Katy - at least it's got a little style (and it won some award for the artwork).

I'm not sure when the new signage was installed, but the Rattlers at Fitch and Arrington is now 7-Eleven.

That's a bit unusual considering that Stripes still has its own "programs" (Stripes' coffee being different than 7-Eleven's coffee, etc.) and Rattlers was on the Stripes program at last visit (not at that particular Rattlers, though). TETCO is a full 7-Eleven in all but name, and the last time I drove by TETCO it was still TETCO.

I was sure those would get converted first.

Is Applebee's still open? Lately the parking lot seems completely empty and the grass overgrown.
According to a facebook post from Peter Madden.....Applebee's is permanently closed.

It's had the machines for years. 4 flavor barrels. It was also already branded Slurpee, has been for at least a year, so nothing to really change. :-)

Speaking of Ice, Santa's wonderland announced that they are adding a really large ice skating rink this year.

There's a sign up at the old Tabor Rd. arena indicating it's the site of a proposed new intermediate school.

Four Points by Sheraton looks to be permanently closed. No activity seeming to go on, Marriott's website has delisted it. The Rattlers-turned-7/11 on Highway 40 still has the old Stripes programs going on like coffee and drinks.

The fact that people think that Boomtown is better than Coopers just makes me realize people don't have good taste and yeah Dickey's was so good they went out of business.
It's why Kreuz Market went out of business.

Kruez was too expensive for the quality and totally the wrong location.

I hope they continue the practice of planting all the trees in rows.

I'll give you the location, but their brisket and prime rib were first class.
And BBQ joints like that are pricey. That's what happens when you can't find brisket at $.97 a pound any more.

On Boomtown - no bark with flavor on the brisket. Bland meat overall. The slices I got were fatty on one end and tough/rubbery on the other end. Sauces was okay. The group I went with thought the pulled pork was good (on sandwiches and nachos).
The BBQ is ok at best. Their concepts of blending together a bunch of stuff into a sandwich or dish is something different.
Maybe the blending is something different for this area but my very favorite thing at the Driftwood Salt Lick is the Marino sandwich which is Chopped Brisket, Sausage & Ribs with pickles & onions. So good.

From Mad Taco Facebook page:
Quote:

Peter Madden here. First, let me thank you all for your tremendous support and your kind words after my previous message. You cannot imagine how much it fuels our efforts. Things are tough, but not impossible. Today, I am writing to begin letting a cat out of a bag and pass on some crucial information. As you know, our original location on the corner of Texas Ave and University has only been open on the weekends for the past 3 months or so. Well, it is time to make some decisions about what to do there. So we are going to close it, effective immediately (wait for it) so that we can reset and reopen 5 days a week, lunch and dinner!

Our goal is to reopen for lunch on Tuesday, October 20th. In the meantime, we are going to be working on shifting the concept slightly. We are not quite ready to say what it will be, but with each passing week we will get closer to unveiling our plans. Please do speculate! That is all I will say for now but remember and please spread the word. MAD taco on University is completely closed for the next 3 weeks to reset so we can reopen!

And stay tuned so you can follow our journey to reopen and thanks again for your help. What a blessing you are to us.

Whew....I love Mad Taco. Get it quite a bit when I'm in town. Seems like kids love Fuego, but to me Mad Taco is superior.

Really hoping it actually does reopen. One of my favorites, and Peter is such a good guy.

Glad they are staying open. We visit the one on Greens Prairie weekly.

It's unfortunate for Mad Taco everything university related is shutting down after Thanksgiving.

Are y'all ready for this one? Wait for it.

Cmac is rebooting Stover Boys/Brothers.

In (drumroll please) the former Silk Stocking location.

You're welcome.

(Of course I'm going to try it)

Edit: my understanding now it's a food truck at that location, not yet a brick and mortar place.

Stover Brothers had probably the best greasy burger I've ever had. And this location is close to my house so I will be a regular customer again.

2020 has been such a sh*t show that I'm glad to hear some good news.

SB was awful. Margie's or Top of the Hill is where it's at for a greasy burger.
