  1. Tony Romas ribs

    Does anyone remember this restaurant chain? Does anyone on here know its history?
  2. When I was a kid going to Longfellow Elm. in the 1960s my mother was into refinishing old furniture and making things like waterfalls out of junk, then dragging them to junk shops and reselling them. One of her/our favorite junk shops was a place on lower Westiemier by the name of Trash & Treasure's. I used to go with her and I would play on the floor among the old stuff. Does this place still exist? Guess I found my love for old stuff from my Mom and old places like this.

  4. Help Identify this Drive-In

    So what's the connection with the Dallas stores?
  5. Help Identify this Drive-In

    On the intersection of S. Main and O.S.T. there was a Sinclair service station that later became the 1st Antone's, but behind that service station was a Prince's and a Stuart's was across the driveway. But yes that was Stuart's that had those AC tubes. But the 1st to use those tubes was a drive in movie theater.

  11. Fieopened asta on 1960

    I grew up in Houston but moved away in 1979 for work, my mother wanted to move back because her only granddaughter lived there and wanted her to move there so she could see her more than she did when she lived in a neighboring state. So we moved to and bought a house in Copperfield that was close to her. While we were there we got a flyer from Fiesta saying their grand opening maybe it said reopening it Was almost 20 years ago, but I was impressed with the store and ending up shopping there quit often. I was just curious if was still opened I live in the DFW area now and have seen several Fiesta stores close or move and was just wondering.

    I thought this was a discussion board it was when I joined years ago, but I guess I was wrong. Not being mean and all.

    In 1999 not long after I moved to Houston Fiesta opened a Super Fiesta just across the road to Willow brook Mall is it still there?
  14. I lived in Houston (CooperField) from 1999-2001 and I used to love going to an all you can eat Japanese Sushi restaurant on 1960 at the entrance to Willowbrook Mall. I can't remember the name of it. I was wondering if 's still there? Lots of happy memories.
  15. Corner of San Felipe and Voss

    The original Antone's was on the corner of S. Main and OST in the old Sinclair service station back in the 60s I used to ride my bike up there and buy sandwiches for the family.
