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.

This place checks out. Great food.
+1

Delicious and very authentic.
Did a take out last night - we are wimps so it was not "hot" - but very good - flavorful - will go again.
Nice to see it was fairly busy with several people waiting for "to go".
Yes, usually Thai restaurants do their spicy on a 1-5 scale and I get 3. My friend likes it hot so he will get 4 or 5 ("Thai spicy") when he is feeling brave. This place does 1-3 so I got 2 and he got 3 and we were BOTH sweating. So I would encourage anyone who doesn't like it spicy to definitely get a 1, and if you DO like it spicy, I'd try 2 the first time before you decide to move up to 3.

I will say, no stomach issues at all though and it was delicious. Dang now I want to go back...

It's Dutch Brothers not Dunkin. I just knew it was some coffee place I don't go to.

Jersey Mike's signage in the window of an empty unit in a shopping center on Briarcrest. Next to Pizza Hut/Wayback Burgers.

You have any more info on the Coastal Addiction? That's in the Hwy 30 Business Park. It sounds interesting, but I wasn't able to find any info on it.

Interesting name for a fishing outfitter that is 100+ miles inland.

Speaking of Tropical Smoothie Cafe...it looks like Chef Cao's has moved down the hill to their new location next door. The daily special sign is in their window and I saw someone walking out with what looked like a to go order.

Chef Cao actually owns that whole center, according to Brazos CAD.

Fritella is back open!! It's better than ever. I was so surprised. Their Eggplant Parmigiana is the best in the area. Don't sleep on this place.
Went on Sunday - just another Italian place, not bad but not great

Expanding Lake Bryan Park, or Lake Bryan?
City built that lake on a hill, keep it filled with well water, a not so brilliant long term strategy.

Did they go gravity flow or lift station for their sewer line for that building that holds more people than the town where I grew up?

The Village will be moving into the old Kimbell Feed building with an opening in Spring 2024. What's The Buzz Coffee will move into the space the Village is vacating.

I didn't see it listed on the list on page 1, but Urban Bird Hot Chicken opened on June 19. It's in Jones Crossing across from Oishi.

I'd like to hear about this place and Dave's Hot Chicken. I love the Cook Shack when I want serious spice but if not, chick fila and chili's are fine.

We tried Pepperoni's Pizza the other night - it's just ok. Definitely not worth what they charge.

This is the company who bought/owns that location.

For some reason I thought I recall it being a salad place but I could be totally wrong and it may just be another restaurant/retail spot.

Salad and Go will not last a quarter of the time the kettle did - guaranteed !!

Has there ever been a wilder swing in the same restaurant location than going from a Kettle to a salad place?

Seafood place to a nail salon.

Agree. Nearly every weekend there were lines out the door at The Kettle for breakfast and it was nearly full mid mornings during the week. Robust lunch business. So tell me how a salad place will match that.

To go only. You can't even eat there.

Salads and go is a very popular, rapidly growing emerging concept that has very impressive traffic and a dutch bros. like cult following. It will eclipse anything kettle ever did and the industry has moved so much towards drive thru vs dine in.

^Perhaps, but this is an extremely price-conscious community re restaurants. A lot of people will think twice about paying X for a salad…a comparatively easy thing to make at home, or to buy one of those pre-made bagged ones at the store. But we'll see what they charge.

We have had a Salata for quite a while. It is easy to make a salad at home, but not with that variety of things to put in the salad. My wife has been known to make some salads with a lot of ingredients, and they are delicious, but it's a PAIN to buy everything and cut everything up.

The salads are $6 and the drinks (tea and coffees) are $1.25. Their breakfast burritos are like $3 and really good. I am a fan and it is a concept that I think could do really well here, but I am not sure about the location. I would think something in south CS, Bryan near Kroger, or closer to A&M would be a better location. But, we will see. I wouldn't be surprised if they open several locations in BCS.

No.

The board has spoken.

This business is too expensive and will fail in this market.

There are a lot of apartments not far away. If they can make it fairly easy to get in and out, I think it'll do well
