Highrise Tower Posted July 25, 2022 Share Posted July 25, 2022 On HAIF, there seems to be some confusion on the location of the first, original Antone's. Some mention the original location is at 807 Taft Street, but others say it was located on the Kirby/Main triangle in a gas station. Perhaps this confusion lies with the type of restaurant? One is a pop-up in a gas station, while the other is a dedicated brick & mortar store? "On the intersection of S. Main and O.S.T. there was a Sinclair service station that later became the 1st Antone's," https://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/47894-sinclair-gas-stationantone’sdroubis-at-6500-south-main-st/#comment-568210 "I believe that those rail cars were originally Victoria's Station and then later became Antone's. It was on that triangular strip of land where Main and OST come together." https://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/47700-victoria-gas-stationantone’sdroubis-at-7807-kirby-dr/#comment-19444 While looking at the Houston Public Library's Digital Archives I noticed some concrete information about the stores locations. Antone's #2 was located at 8111 South Main St. Antone's #1 was indeed located at 807 Taft St. Antone's #3 was located at 1639 South Voss St. From the research I did, there is still a location, although rebranded as Angelo'z "World's Best Po'boys", at 8057 Kirby Drive near Old Spanish Trail. https://cdm17006.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/postcards/id/1653/rec/1 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
