Brooks System Sandwich Shop At 907 Rusk St.


Recommended Posts

Another correction to houwest's list in post # 51 - One's a Meal.

According to their website, they started in 1920 on Rusk as Brooks System Sandwiches. I had previously found evidence of them as early as 1933 but hadn't ever checked the old phone directories.

I first ate at one on Almeda around Blodgett in 1963 and it was known as Brooks System Sandwich Shops, Ones-a-Meal.

Interesting history on their website; claims to have been the first all night restaurant in Houston.
