Original ChopShop is coming to Century Square.
Circle T gas station opened at Holleman S and Rock Prairie W about a week ago.

That location for Circle T is really odd.

We went to the soft opening of Frida's Kitchen & Bar last night. TL/DR - it was amazing and everyone needs to go.

It is located in the space previously occupied by Saints and Sinners (Broadmoor/Texas shopping center in Bryan). It has the same owners as Tortilleria Mi Tierra, which is located next door (that is their third location).

Cocktails - There are several craft cocktails and you can choose which liquor you'd like (tequila, vodka, gin, etc.). I had the Jardin de Frida with tequila, which is made with watermelon and red bell pepper. It was fantastic. My friends had a cucumber/tajin cocktail with tequila, a blueberry cocktail with vodka, and a fresh margarita. Those were good as well. We couldn't taste the alcohol but boy were they strong, lol.

Chips & Salsas - Each table is served fresh made tortilla chips with three dips/salsas (salsa verde, salsa rojo, and a black bean dip). All three were very flavorful but were not spicy. Honestly, I didn't miss the spice because they were that good, especially the salsa verde.

Appetizers - We tried the Mexican street corn, which was the table favorite by far. These are smaller than they look in pictures, but absolutely worth it.

Entrees - We ordered the Enchiladas Mexicanas, Flautas Ahogadas, Tostadas de Tinga, and fajitas. Everything was great. The sauce for the tostadas definitely had a kick to it.

Desserts - The El Cielo consisted of two Banuelos topped with homemade vanilla ice cream, berries, and homemade cotton candy. We demolished it in less than two minutes. We also ordered the Pan de Elote. Let me be clear that I want this served as part of my final meal. It was the best thing I ate last night, probably in the last few weeks. It reminds me of sweet cornbread topped with sweetened cream corn, but isn't overly sweet. If you aren't a huge sweets person, this is what you should order for dessert provided I don't order it all ahead of you.

Everything was outstanding. Yes, it was a soft opening so there are a few kinks to work out (it took awhile for get our drinks). The friends I was with commented that Frida's is much better than Juanita's at a much better price point. I haven't been to Juanita's, so I can't compare. We plan to go back soon for brunch, which is served until 3 each day they're open. The brunch menu includes chilaquiles, chicken and churro waffles, and mollete. I can't seem to find a website but it you're on FB, Rusty posted pictures of the menu yesterday. The grand opening is Saturday but they are fully open if you want to avoid that crowd.

I'm more interested in the Korean corn dogs (and the ones with cheese, too.)

Come to think of it, where ARE the good (regular) corn dog places in town? Fletcher's and Corn Dog 7 are both long gone. And don't say Sonic.

Not odd at all, when you consider the Barracks, Mission Ranch, and the elementary school. So many folks living over there. Those subdivisions need it. The train is such an obstacle at times. It will help alleviate traffic at the Rock Prairie light as well.

Looks like at this point, all the I Heart Mac & Cheese locations have closed in our area? Not seeing any listed on their site anymore.

Also, spotted a new ramen-type place under way in Westgate Shopping Center. They had an initial sign-up and pictures in the windows, but the brain lost the name.

I was talking "odd" more in the way that it's tucked back off the road and really only has access from that spot where I&GN has stayed two lanes while South Holleman just past Rock Prairie is four lanes and nice concrete.

The convenience stores at Graham, West Deacon, and that 360 Market a little further down all have better access in and out being on corners.

And that's the other issue. There were already three stores to compete against within a mile. And one has a great taco trailer and one has a new La Familia location!

A bit far away from where I live, and I don't even live in south College Station. (Around seven miles.)

It is a place called Casa Pita according to the permitting records. I can't find any website or information about it.

Anyone know what's going in on highway 30 across from Powersports? Looks like they are cutting in a big road right there and my fear is for a big zero lot line subdivision. I guess that's better than more warehouses.

The Bryan city council at its March regular meeting approved giving $815,000 dollars to the developer of a new housing and commercial complex.

There was no public discussion before the unanimous vote to reimburse the cost of providing sewer service to 259 residential lots and 43 commercial lots at Highway 30 and Hardy Weedon Road.

I believe I saw it was going to be a light commercial subdivision called Reveille Park.

Did Mr Bill die or something? I gave him more than my tuition.

I drove by Wokamole yesterday. They did have a sign up that said that they were temporarily closed due to a family emergency. So yay! I mean yay they aren't closed forever.

I was afraid that's what it was! We live in Enchanted oaks subdivision. Wickson is already having trouble keeping up with water usage in this area. Will the city provide them water or is it all coming from Wickson Water?? Anyone know??

Any update on what may be going in on the empty frontage road lot in front of the Courtyard Marriott? Rock Prairie and Hwy 6 South at the Woodcreek entrance. Noticed a silt fence was up and trees are being cleared.

We bought the house in 1989 and couldn't get the water to pass inspection. The well and collection system were both old. We got Wickson water at that time.
