I’ve noticed that Maria’s line for breakfast tacos is nowhere near as long as it was. She handled that sale rumor poorly. Nice for my Saturday taco run though.

Interesting that Riverside Resources is (potentially) behind the new apartment tower. They backed 5th & West as well.

I know a few people in the restaurant industry and I learned this:

- Frank & Angies and Huts are owned by the same family. Their son works at both places.

- The same person who owns the liquor store owns all three properties (FnA, Huts, Liquor Store).

- Over the last several years Huts received more attention from the owners (menu tweaks, maintenance, etc.)

- Take everything you hear with a grain of salt.

I thought Hut's was overrated almost 60 years ago. Did they get a new cook since then?

I agree to an extent. The Tubys Tickler (chili, cheese burger) ain’t no punk. Had one yesterday.

Is that good or bad..."ain't no punk" when referring to food?? I can't keep up anymore. Thanks for making me feel older than I am Dcbrickley.

He's saying it's good.

I've only been to Hut's once. I remember their onion rings were pretty killer.

At Hut's: #13, Milner's I think it's called, with mushroom gravy, is really good.

Kind of a bummer. I used to eat there a lot when I lived downtown. Food was good, inexpensive and unpretentious. We really don't have a lot of this kind of Italian food down here in Texas.

But as long as this building has retail (ideally a restaurant) on the first floor and good street activation, it is almost certainly a net benefit.

Do we know if anything is happening to Irene's? I'd mourn that even more. There aren't many other patio restaurants downtown.
