Hopefully TXDOT will acquire and bulldoze it soon, to put it out of its misery. 

from the looks of the strip center, the owners have been answering every phone call, hoping it's the one from TXDOT.

this building is not a shining example of why the realignment shouldn't happen.

I can already tell this bar is trash before I ever set foot in it.

one man's trash is another man's smelly bar they can curl up into a cheap glass of really bad, but overpoured booze. if you drink enough, the smell would eventually go away.

As long as the drinks are cheap I could care less. If they keep everything from the last place, it was actually pretty nice.

see!

and actually, I agree, I'm more impressed with the places that have decently priced alcohol and aren't trying to attract the see/be seen crowd.

Had lunch at Acadian Coast today and it was pretty rough.

There were 3 of us, and we were the 8th-10th people in the restaurant, and it took more than 30 minutes for us to get our food. Waitress said that it was the head chef's first day off after working 23 days in a row and the sous chef just had a baby and is out, so the line cook was the only one back there and that she was having to help prepare the food. 

I know things are tough in the industry, but not a great experience. Lunch took north of an hour.

Interesting. I've had a good time when I've been. Hope your experience is an anomaly and not a new trend.

I think that we should all give, even well established restaurants, a little leeway right now. It’s no secret that labor is a major issue.  Sounds like Acadian Coast explained the issue pretty clearly. 

Agree... had Sunday brunch a few weeks ago with several friends at the newish Acme Oyster House in Montrose... food was great but service was so slow and we were shocked that on a Sunday when they were obviously busy that they were closing between 3pm and 5pm.  Well after a quick talk with our server we found out why... it was a labor issue... they were short staffed and the cooks were very overworked.  So obviously we understood.

I completely agree. Food was cooked well, which is what I was looking for. However, if I had known it was going to take that long I would have gone to Roostar 😄

For the first few weeks they were open, they were literally running out of food on Sundays. They are closed on Monday/Tuesday so I kind of get it. The waitress we had there was really good and she said she was actually driving down from Cleveland to work. She was also taking shifts at two other restaurants trying to decide which one paid more. Restaurant labor shortage definitely real!

CobosBBQ moving in next door.

So this is another new place going in at this strip center which is definitely in the path of the I-45 reroute. Leads me to believe that the owners of this land know something about the project that perhaps hasn’t been made public. Maybe the federal Title VI investigation has some momentum to it and the efforts to undermine the project have a chance of succeeding.
