Glad you CS people are finally getting to experience the Popeye's goodness that us Bryanites have been enjoying for decades.
We had a Popeye's on Graham (it's now a Marco's.)

It was so terribly run that they closed it down. I don't think I ever had anything but a subpar experience there and wasn't shocked when it shut down.


There was also once a Popeyes across from A&M Consolidated HS in that Exxon center.

I remember that Popeyes at the gas station. When it became a bank, they rebuilt the entire drive-through area. I'm not sure if Popeyes closed, then the Graham Road opened, or if there was a gap, but the Graham Road Popeyes really wasn't near anything when it opened, just hidden behind an office building that wasn't able to be seen or accessed very easily from the highway. By the time Marco's came along, hotels were beginning to be built around it.

Correct. I lived off of Deacon and was there weekly.

We went to tads for breakfast this morning and it was excellent. Highly recommend the catfish breakfast and the pancakes were awesome too!

Tads is ok but they built it too small... and whoever designed their parking lot should be punched in the face repeatedly .. whoever approved it should be kicked in the face repeatedly

Dude, you need to get some help and anger management classes! Lots of vitriol over a building and a parking lot,

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

Drove by the new one on Wellborn yesterday and the line was all the way out to the side entrance on Deacon (?). Is this still just new store-itis or is there something magical about the menu? I mean, I tried a plain coffee and it was ok - maybe I'm just too old to understand....

It only took forever, but Rusty at KBTX reported that Chic Fil A Bryan will break grounds this month and be open in July.

I don't drink coffee personally but all my friends that do rave about Dutch Bros. I also hear that their line runs as efficiently as Chick-Fil-A.

Yeah, and getting a plain coffee at Dutch Bros is like going to Burger Mojo and getting the chicken strips. Like... it's on the menu, but that's not what people are coming for.

I'm a regular coffee guy myself also, but I had some of their other stuff when I was out in California last year and I liked it a lot better than Starbucks. Though if I'm in the mood for a latte or something I'd probably go to Gogh Gogh or Harvest just because I prefer local places.

They also absolutely nailed it on location.

That will be the fourth Dutch Bros location in BCS (Wellborn, one in front of Baylor Scott and White, and one near Target in Bryan).

The Bryan one will be near Kroger.
Somebody has to lose. Might as well be t.u.

Yes, sorry - was picturing the area by Kroger, but typed Target.

Someone had some major capital to bank a brand new chain (to this area), (4) franchise deal in our small market...impressive!!

Finally jumped in the Dutch Bro's line this morning. It was very Chick Fil A-ish. Must have had six people working outside, two lanes, carhop girl was maybe too nice.

Only kinda downside right now is you need to pull up the menu on your phone when you drive up because, like Chick Fil A, they're taking orders before you get to the menu.

But the coffee is great. Will definitely be going back.

Hey I just wanted to help spread the word that we are remodeling the Jersey Mike's Rock Prairie/BSW location (Tuesday through Sunday). When I built out the first store, the corporate folks were finalizing the new look/finishes (the look of the Jones Crossing/HEB location) and we ended up on the tail-end of the old look. We'd love for you to come by the new location at Jones Crossing this week if you haven't been by, but if not, be sure to come check out the remodeled store at Rock Prairie next week! As always, thanks for all the support!

Quarantine bubble and I tried the new bar "101" in Bryan last night. Fun, funky new place. Had a vague Revolution feel (except the bathrooms were very clean and you didn't feel like you'd be teleported to a really unpleasant place when you walked in). Very friendly folks running the place. Nice outdoor seating and they're getting their outdoor heating game on (no that won't matter with the coming weather). Good drinks selection. Happy with it.

I work down there on 26th but I cut out at 3 everyday before they open... not that I need to have them open earlier because I'm too old to start up "liquid lunches" again...

Quote:

Dutch Bros chose College Station for its Texas rollout, in part, Harris says, because of its proximity to Texas A&M University and the likelihood that the brand could start off strong there. In fact, with its cult-like following of caffeine fanatics, Dutch Bros served 1,869 cars on opening day, which the company says amounts to about 104 cars an hour and 1.7 cars a minute.
Wowzers.

Just checking. That place is excellent. Great product and the service and staff are just as good so far.

We checked out The 101 recently as well and liked it a lot. Nice people, good drinks.

That's a bummer if Snooze isn't coming. We've always enjoyed eating at Snooze.
