How many restaurants can you name that were in the Location of the Damned (the perpetually failing restaurant to the North of the old Wings where Cazadores is now?)

Bonus points for naming them in order.

There was a Chinese Buffet
Porky's Hamburgers...lasted about 6 weeks
El Arroyo

Jeez...it's been too many to think about.

I think it was a sushi place between El Arroyo and the chinese buffet.

Cazadores has been there a while, I think it opened around the same time as that horrid stacked enchilada place that closed down.

It was a pizza place for awhile, too. They paid their employees in cash so they wouldn't have to pay social security taxes. Needless to say, they weren't in business long.

Cazadores will probably last a while there, they have good food and always have great service.

I always thought Mama's was in the WnM building next door. That's where I remember going to pick up those delicious breadsticks.

Snuffer's was horrible. They served me a half raw hamburger once.

I thought El Arroyo was going to last.

You are correct about the pizza place. It was called Rockyano's.
I worked there and the owner did pay in cash, when he did pay, so as to avoid taxes.
To tell you how much of a sleaze he was, he put his wife's name on all the ownership papers, and when the IRS did finally come and close the place down, they came after her and not him.
I was working for them when they got shut down. My roomate, who also worked there, called and told me if I had anythign in there, I better come get it because they were shutting it down. You should have seen the beer trucks parked in front racing in to get all their kegs and taps, ect. before it got closed down!

dj apparently all these uppity texans dont like NM tex-mex. Personally I think if you just throw an egg on it their the food was much better, but I grew up on that. Oh well, enjoyed it while it lasted.

Seems like there was also a Mexican-Seafood type place in the mix. I don't remember the name offhand, maybe something-Del Mar?

I ate at Kerry's once or twice. The food wasn't bad when I was there. However, the overall atmosphere of the place sucked. The Dixie Chicken looks rustic, but Kerry's just looked like a dump. They pulled up the tile to reveal the concrete floor, but they left the streaks of the mastic. They screwed corrugated tin to the walls right over the sheetrock, and didn't even do a good job of that. And the bathroom was still trashed out with all the greek frat letters scratched in the wall from Wings-N-More days. I usually don't care one way or the other about atmosphere, but Kerry's really was a dump.

And before it was Wings-N-More, it was a Sambo's Restaurant.

I think Cazadores is going to last at that spot.

I like their lunch specials.

Yes, I know that Fleen. Mama's Pizza --> Cazadores. I was commenting on the mention of Kerry's and why they are out of business.

OK, OK, I was just saying...Plus it was still Wings when I left...

Burd cant argue with that, its just hard hearing people complain about the food, since it wasnt the worst in town. I also know the people that owned Kerry's, so I was upset for them.

Nobody mentioned Shanghai's...for the week or so it was opened, which was a few years after Mama's shut down

Doesnt sound like something these people would do, but I do know that they had someone else handling things. Maybe they knew, maybe they didnt found out until they were closing. Just hate to see the only food to remind me of home is gone.

bigjordo, I think you were in my tech writing class this past summer. I can't even remember the prof's name, but I remember you talking about working at the liquor store.

I didn't realize Beverage Oasis did stuff for restaurants, as the actual storefront is kinda small (but what they do have is usually pretty reasonable).

Never ate at Kerri's, but I think I went to Wings-n-More more when it was there than after they moved. The only time I went to the place next door was way back when it was Shanghai (at least 10 years ago).

I think it was originally opened up in the early 70's under the name Fontana's. Italian food. Mama's Pizza replaced it a few years later.

It was Fontana's. Never saw anybody parked out front, but there was always a couple of Cars in back. Me and my Dad ventured in one time to eat and were met by a guy who politely told us, "it wasn't a good time".

speaking of which, we drove by Kerris/Wings this evening, and the whole damn building was demolished!!! I am pretty sure it was there this afternoon? Or did I just not notice it earlier?

I kind of felt all sad since Wings was such a great restaurant there (though I'm glad they expanded).

yea, same with me, i remember driving by there, thinking about this thread, and seeing it demolished, hopefully with them demolishing it, it will break the curse and open something with more staying power.

I saw the dozers in the middle of the rubble this afternoon. It didn't take long to raze the entire place.
