Yoga Pod is no longer at their Rock Prairie location. They are in a temporary space while their new space at the Physicians Centre is built out.

According to Rusty, All the King's Men is rebranding as "Teppy's Taphouse" with a new menu (but will still have BBQ).

All the Kings Men has rebranded to Teppy's Taphouse. It's open Thurs-Sunday for now.

Went to downtown Bryan for lunch and saw the new door signage.

Think of Proudest Monkey but chicken tenders instead of burgers. More seating and a few large TVs with sports. They're still rebranding but really cool place.

They have Nashville Hot Chicken that is pretty good. Not overly spicy and good flavor. Probably 30 draught beers. Still working on a custom cocktail menu.

I'll definitely be back.

**BBQ is still available but BBQ menu seemed smaller**
Rusty was only 5 weeks behind.

So was I. First I've of heard of this change.

The BCS obsession with chicken fingers rolls on; maybe every restaurant should just rebrand as chicken fingers only. Could generate some interesting PR.

I remember when we had fowl digits, laynes, and canes right there in a row and we called it "the chicken strip" … rip.

Pretty sure that Fowl Digits came up with that as part of marketing.

Fowl Digits clearly wanted to be a chain and I remember the owners advertised quite extensively but it was an overpriced sports bar at the end of the day.

Didn't fowl digits become a sports bar for a few years before Torchy's went in?

Or maybe that was before Fowl Digits.

Venezuela Latin Food has opened at 1800 Welsh, a food truck in the Shell parking lot at Welsh & SW Parkway.

First authentic Venezuelan food in B/CS I believe. Got empanada's and cachapas for breakfast there last weekend and they were fantastic!

It was Snuffers. But I don't know if it was before or after Fowl Digits.

It was Snuffers then a Chinese restaurant before Fowl digits

El Arroyo (1998-1999)
Gin Seng Garden* (possibly one other in the meantime)
La Familia del Mar (2001)
Hong Kong Buffet* (2001-2002, unconfirmed)

It was Rockyano's Pizza when I was going to school. I worked there one year. I thought Wings and more was further down going towards University.

Wings N More was right next to it. In the early 2000s it moved to University Drive East. A restaurant called Kerri's Stacked Enchiladas replaced it but it went under within a few years and by 2007 it was a brand new Raising Cane's. It wasn't the first one in Texas but it would be one of the earliest.

Wings was were Raising Canes is now. I remember they had a rock wall at the entrance and as a kid I was always excited about going there so I could try and climb the rock wall. Also, someone told me (as a kid) that they put beer in their ketchup. I think that's where my ketchup addiction started…

I LOVED Cazadores because they are one of the few Mexican restaurants I've found in my life that had combo plates WITHOUT rice and beans. The fajita taco and cheese enchilada combo was .

I came in 2001 and I only remember Casadores there. I went to WNM in the area often.

The Torchys location was originally Coach Nortons house of pancakes I believe. Back in the 60's.

Stampede at the mall had CLOSED TODAY signage for a week or two and now has blackout drapes all around.

The window cases have been cleaned out as well

Restaurant, Bar, and live music venue. It was in the old movie theater location.

It's been so long since I've been to the mall I guess I never saw it.

Did they have live music often?

No idea about their live music. I only went there once, shortly after they opened, for an early dinner with the family. The food was nothing special and we never went back.

It was a similar business just before Stampede. I have already forgotten that name. Their food was better but I believe the owner got into significant legal trouble?

Neither of the last two were "too far from the bypass". This is a really crazy start to the summer.

Maybe they were just "kinda expensive for this town?"

I find Twin Peaks to be far superior to Hooters on all points. Not surprising. They have my favorite wings in town at the moment, although Angry Elephant is great as well.

Didn't Fontana's opened up there a second time for about a year and close again.

Wasn't Wings where Sambos was back in the 1970s? We used to eat breakfast there most every Sat morning.

BCS seems to be a curvilinear restaurant town; the high end places do fine, and the dive places, taquerias, etc do fine.
The patrons of the high end places are the only persons with expendable income that can go out. Times are tough for many families. Many families of four cannot spend $75 and up to eat out at even a moderately priced restaurant.
