Two Pesos was I believe folded into Taco Cabana.  They were both the same concept. 

 

Grandy's I remember on South Main near Buffalo Speedway.  Well known for their biscuits!

I grew up near Hillcroft and Main Street.....

I remember an ice cream place on Hillcroft before you got to Braeswood on the corner in the same parking lot Rice used to be in...before that right past St. Thomas More Church, there was a place called Jacks Yogurt Stop that was the first place I ever tried Frozen Yogurt that was right before the Frozen Yogurt craze of the 90s...

 

Not sure why I haven't replied to this before but I can't find it - the ice cream parlor was either a Swenson's or a Carvel.  I only went once and I'm remembering old-timey ice cream parlor decor.

 

It's now a realtor's office, I think.

"I just called the Jack In The Box corporate office, and they gave out a list of former locations."
 
I can think of one more but I don't know the store number: in Kemah on State Highway 146, south of the bridge and just north of the intersection with FM 2094. It is now a boat dealership.
I think the structure on El Camino Real just north of NASA Road 1 must have been a JIB at one time too. It has been a succession of grungy looking eateries since and may be abandoned now.

Interesting to see the list of former Jack in the Boxes. It confirms for me what I had always thought. the Jack in the Box on the corner of South Park (now Martin Luther King) and Browncroft was the first one in Houston.

 

It was right across from Palms Center and adjacent to the old Montgomery Wards store.

 

Reading through this old topic brings to mind a few I remember as a kid (and not so much). The first one was Thornhills cafeteria. I remember at least two of them, one at Palm Center and one in a little center not far from Gulfgate, across from Woodridge Baptist Church. They had a conveyor belt that took the dirty dishes back to the dishwasher when you finished your meal. We would put our tray on the belt and then run along to the various openings to check on their progress. The second one is the Hamburgers by Gourmet, I can still taste the burgers I got from that place, that's the one I still really miss. I used to patronize at least three of them at various times, mostly the one on Kirby but also the one next to Saint Thomas. Finally, someone mentioned the Beef and Bun on Fuqua and wondered if it was still open, I am glad to report that they are still open and I was there as late as last week, still great BBQ.

ArchMemoH,

 

I see what happened, the list they gave you shows #636 to be 6901 Bellfort @ Wayside, actually 6901 Bellfort is at Nunn street (at least according to MapQuest), just across the railroad tracks from Wayside.

 

I don't really remember the one at Wayside, even though I used to go that way quite a bit, was there one there as well?

There was a little white building on Washington, not too far from the Salvation Army. It had the BEST burgers! I remember frequenting it in the early 80s. A little old lady was the cook. There was no where to sit inside. I think they had one or two of those concrete patio tables outside. I am sure that placed closed because she passed away. I always wondered what it was called.

I listed these locations

 

Yes, # 643 and # 3916. My bad.

 

I'm not sure why the one in Kemah closed. It always seemed to have enough business. There was a stretch of time in the early '00s when I was putting in some very late hours at a job in the area and this was the only place open after 11:00pm.

Specwriter, you got a list of former fast food locations?

 

Sorry, no. I think it was fortunate that JIB had one you were able to get. Just yesterday I thought about all the McDonalds (existing and no longer here) there must be in Harris County alone! Same with Burger King.

 

I'm sure I could answer my own question just by driving down North Shepherd, but is the Jack-in-the-Box at Shepherd and Donovan still there? My cousin attended St. Pius X high school in the mid-1960's. Sometimes my sister and I would ride along with our aunt when she went to pick up her daughter from school and we would often use the drive through to get shakes and fries on the way home.

Well, that's what I'm trying to do, and I do have the Burger King list updated with old Houston locations (at least late-1990s era).

 

Current link, to be closed soon

New link if old link doesn't work

And speaking, you know the Jack in the Box at 9310 Stella link @ south loop?

Did you see the DTC lady breaking the jack window with a tire, fire and gun?

Get it, an explosion to 9310 Stella link! Lol!

Discount tire company is at 9316 Stella link, she now nailed the parking lot as 9312, at lease 9314 in honor of the Marines commercial channel, in which will be home of these old time commercials.

See them on smile of a child Houston 39:5

Barry's used to be at the southwest corner of the Windsor Plaza parking lot at Richmond and Sage. The first Chili's I remember in Houston was Richmond and Fountainview, diagonally across from where Barry's is now.

Chili's is now a Burger King at 3127 fountain view

The Credit Union on Edgebrook was a Taco Bueno. i think the company was dallas-based. it may have been a del taco too later but it was built as Taco Bueno.

Maybe Alfie's fish and chips?..i remember eating at one on Broadway in galveston.

Their logo was the canadian mountie from the cartoons.

What about H Salt fish and chips? They are still around in California. I know their were a few here in the early 70's.

And the little places..about the same size as an old box shaped jack in the box but were made to look like windmills with cedar shake siding. can't remember the name seems like it started with a W.

The old Del Taco on Edgebrook is now Marcos Seafood & Oyster Bar, the facade has been altered some, mostly the upper portion of the building

Alfies fish and chips is still alive and well in Texas City on Palmer Hwy just before the dike! We ate at that on after the one on broadway in Galveston closed down.

 

I couldn't believe it, when I saw this building! The sign near the road is newer, but the building looks original (maybe someone can confirm) and the sign on the facade is how I remember it, originally, in the 60's, or was it the 70's? Alfies. I remember the location on Nasa Road 1, and one on Edgebrook, by a pizza place, close to Old Galveston Road. Address for Texas City location, from Google Earth is approximate, @ 2151 FM 1764 or 2170 9th Ave N.

 and another location with facade, still unaltered, 60's white with brown, Olde English look. 108 E. Edgebrook Dr.

Does anyone remember the Red Windmill Dinner Theater? I think it was in southwest Houston, possibly Town & Country Mall area. In the late 70s - early 80s I worked for Channel 39 and an actor named Gray (I don't  remember his first name. The only possible name that comes to mind is Roger.) worked part time as a newscaster in the early morning. He left to become the manager of the Red Windmill Theater. (or Theatre?)

I think it was just the Windmill Dinner Theater, I don't remember 'red' being part of the name, in T&C.  I went there just once.  Couldn't tell you what we saw (or ate).

 

There was a Roger Gray.  I never knew he worked for 39; I worked with him briefly at KLYX, the precursor to Majic 102.  I think he worked at several radio stations and was a talk show host at one time, as best I recall.   Last I heard of him I think he was up in East Texas, but that's been a couple of decades ago.

I think it was just the Windmill Dinner Theater, I don't remember 'red' being part of the name, in T&C.  I went there just once.  Couldn't tell you what we saw (or ate).

 

There was a Roger Gray.  I never knew he worked for 39; I worked with him briefly at KLYX, the precursor to Majic 102.  I think he worked at several radio stations and was a talk show host at one time, as best I recall.   Last I heard of him I think he was up in East Texas, but that's been a couple of decades ago.

Thanks for the confirmation of the name Roger Gray. As for the theater name, I don't know if my memory is better or yours. I just appreciate being able to reestablish the information and memories.

Between 1978 and 1985, our TV studio productions included numerous sessions with Bum Phillips (Bum Phillip's Coach's Show), Mickey Gilley (Gilley's Place), and Paul Bosh (I. W. Marks commercials and Houston Wrestling). PM Magazine hosts at KHTV39 included Bill Worrell and Giff Nielsen. I did not really know radio people then. I did a little radio DJ-ing at college in California.

This was in the semi-recent past, within last 10-20 years or so.  There was an Italian/Pizza place either on Westheimer or possibly Memorial, probably just outside of the Beltway (Energy Corridor).  I remember they had a collection of basketball player's shoes.  The big shoes, incredible sizes.  They had many dozens of these shoes displayed on the walls of the restaurant, along with pictures of the players.  The pizza was forgettable, but not the shoes.  Does any one remember the name of the place?  It might still be there, but I doubt it...

Der Wienerschnitzel (Houston) 1303 Westheimer Rd

That was the Doc's location and I thought that salad place was going there? This article is from December so maybe things have changed, i haven't been by in a while...

Edit: I misread Crockpot's post, and thought the list of "previous locations" were all new upcoming locations! Disregard the Doc's/Sweetgreen comment...

Recently my husband and I revisited Houston after being gone for nearly 37 years. Yes ....so much has changed! We found ourselves looking for one particular restaurant but couldn't exactly  remember where it was. We believe "The Best Little Steak House in Texas" was on Wirt Rd. Anyone remember this place?

So, I'm youngish and there's some places I've been going to for my twenties that shut down recently and I'm sad about it and want to share here. One would be Happy Fatz on White Oak, they did a fancy hot dog and baked goods (cakes and cake balls and interesting pies), Italian sodas, fancy coffees and the like, and surprisingly good salads. I miss it. I also miss Pop & Pan the well reviewed and liked panini and popcorn place that shut down mysteriously a month or two ago.
