Not sure if this is still being updated, but here's some new additions for Austin.


McDonalds - West Campus


Location at 414 W Martin Luther King Blvd closed in July to make way for a high-rise hotel.


Taco Cabana - West Campus


This one at 517 W Martin Luther King Blvd shuttered due to being a poor performing location.

I don't remember a Red Lobster down Dyna, mkultra, but I do remember this little diddy that I used to love, called the Moon Palace. How I miss the Palace...

Could Red Lobster have been in the stand alone building next door to Los Cabos/Moon Palace? I've been trying to put my finger on what that game room used to be for quite some time now. It was obviously a restaurant, but what? It's been driving me crazy. Wouldn't that be something if we ended up answering each other's question? The building certainly doesn't look like an old Red Lobster, but I guess it's possible.


Looks like a JoJo's

The Jack in the Box at 6901 Bellfort was our teenage hangout on Friday & Saturday nights. We went there between 1972-1975. Innocent kid stuff. Drive thru backwards, place goofy orders, things like that. I ran with 2 friends & we were definitely The 3 Musketeers. We girls were so shallow. We went to Houston from Pearland. The boys in Pearland were not allowed long hair, so our boyfriends went to Jones, Milby & Austin. Hair was not a problem. Ha. 15 yrs old. First car. Summer of 72

I didn't think that Jojos was a local chain, but the only local one that sticks out to me was the one on the Seawall in Galveston. I think it's the Denny's there now. The only one I'd ever eaten at was in Irving on the Airport Freeway back in the late 90s, though I'm doubtful the strip center it was in is even there anymore.

The Galveston Denny's is no more.
