Lunch only today through Saturday. Then 11:30-9 SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

They've added a small bar area and a few new things to the menu.

This is a good location and even the building itself has potential-let's hope a quality restaurant comes in to take over that spot.

It had seemed like a huge decline for years from it's heyday.

Those WERE great locations. I stay away now so I don't have to do the median dance.

Exactly, last time I was over there, they were building the medians. Didn't really pay attention to where the left turns would be and if there would be access @ Ozona.

I believe the only left-hand turn lane near Ozona is in front of Sonic.

Which leads into the parking lot for Sonic, as well as Ozona and Rudy's.

The immediate surrounding area is not desirable for a developer for a number of reasons. That Harvey Rd area has experienced consistent turnover for years.

I hated trying to turn left there anyway so I always just came from Texas Ave so I could turn right

Yeah. It's not that hard to take an extra couple of minutes to go around the block and come in from the right.

One added bummer is that this is a place that would have live music on the patio a few nights per week. It's always a treat to have good live music instead of canned music.

Went to Ozona quite often 12 or 13 years ago knew several of the bartenders and it was tragic one of them was killed at the pool hall by Kohls for no reason at all by a guy that worked at Tom Light it was so sad

Notwithstanding the subject of your post, kudos to you for the most efficient telling of a story while invoking several local businesses.

I'll miss the deck, chips and queso and Mas Mejor.

I slowed down at Ozona when the prices got out of hand, way before the pandemic.

Did they ever reduce the menu for the pandemic?

Tuesdays 2 for 1 burgers made for a good cheap date in college ten-ish years ago. Really liked their chips and queso.

Would be a great spot for a smaller Pappasitos!

This was us. We used to hit up all the time for the half off burger specials and whatnot since we lived in the townhomes right down the road.

But then the quality got worse, the prices got higher and the service was not what it used to be. Wife and I went back a few months ago on a one-off and just knew we weren't itching to go back.

Restaurant business is tough, especially in the summers around here.

Disagree. It has Pappadeaux written all over it. Pappasitos can go in at the old Johnny Carinos when this new restaurant flops.

Yep. Used to eat free in the summers because they paid in giftcards and most of the acts were college kids who left for the summer. Since I was one of the few that hung around I was playing about every other week in the summmer.

Then school would come back around and the band would practice there once a month. Pay in gift cards sucked but we treated it as a practice so between the gift cards and tips, it was nice.

Lots of memories and carbs from Ozona. But haven't been there in half a decade.

Just the right distance from the bypass.

Anchor Bar? No way it flops.

If the lessons pricing on this is reasonable it'll do well

I have heard good things about this new Thai restaurant….. did I miss anything here about it ? Assuming that's the old Blake's Steaks location.

Had lunch there yesterday. Highly recommended. Best Thai I have had in this town, not to take anything away from others.
