  1. I know that there's a thread about pothole repairs for Westheimer, but I think that Westheimer requires more than just repair. IMO, Westheimer between the Galleria and Montrose has become a marquee street in the city of Houston. The Galleria was already the best retail area in the city and the current developments between there and Highland Village are just adding to that. The part that runs through Montrose is the hottest restaurant area in the city. I know that there was call to put rail down Westheimer, but IMO Westheimer would be much better served by decreasing traffic on it and all

  5. I would prefer to see all current money available for street repair to go to widening sidewalks and beautifying the pedestrian realm (benches, landscaping, etc).

  6. Not sure which Ranger Drive-In you remember, but the Ranger I remember was at Telephone Road and Holmes Road behind Gulfgate. A long way north of Hobby. That was long before the South Loop cut through on the Holmes Road footprint and blew out a lot of businesses that had been there a long time. As I recall, the Ranger had the hottest car-hops on that end of Houston.

  8. I remember the Best store across the street. I got a Scooby Doo board game from there that I loved playing with it. It was like a 3 dimensional board game. That was one of my favorite toys. They used to have the neatest water features with the chimes at Greenspoint. Haven't been there in years.

  9. Over the years many many restaurants have come and gone in out fair city. Houston is known as "The Restaurant Capital of The World". Houston has more restaurants per capita than any other U.S. city. I started this Thread to let people list their all-time favorites, of the ones they miss the most. Does anyone remember The Rail Head and Victoria Station from back in the 70's? These were Rail Road themed restaurants, that's were really popular in the 70's and 80's. As a kid it was wonderful. At the Rail Head, they actually had a stage for music acts, surrounded by open rail cars with dining booth

Several from long ago in my childhood when we used to come to Houston to see my grandparents: -Kapan's on South Main at Kirby (where the Eckerd's is now), our usual Sunday after church lunch place - good steaks and seafood, and those excellent crab ball appetizers that the guy in the white suit used to bring around to all the tables -Angelo's, another long gone seafood restuarant -The Strawberry Patch on Westheimer, the Pappas family's country/home cooking concept (Pappas Bros. Steakhouse is there now) -Tokyo Gardens, the first place I ever had Japanese
