Bub's Burger Joint

Grocery stores, recipes, cook books, CSAs, farmers' markets, organic, local, processed, corporate. It's a smorgabord!

Wow...ok.

I guess we'll see if it's like the "remodeling" that took place for the last restaurant there (or was it the place before that?).

The place before last. Las Palmas announced remodeling, and never reopened until El Pescador took its place.

I was thinking of El Pescador, FWIW.

Funny. The duplication of failures in that location had completely escaped my memory. It's actually kind of creepy.

Indeed.

I was going to say that what I quoted didn't actually make my point, although other stuff in that thread did.

We'll see, but I'm not about to start holding my breath over Bub's.

Maybe a "Closed for Remodeling" sign just means something new is going in there.

Bye-bye Bub's. There's a sign up--it's gonna be a "Mexican Grill", but I don't remember the name.

Back to Mexican. Not sure what "Happy Grill" is supposed to connote.

And is or isn't "connotate" a word?

Shouldn't it be called Feliz Parrilla... or something like that?

Sniff. Bub's Burger Joint is ripping off Five Guys in Restaurant Heaven now.
