Everyone knows that here in the state of Texas we are pretty fortunate with all the delicious food options that we have. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t miss some of the restaurants that we enjoyed growing up that are no longer here. It’s fun to think about those restaurants that have closed their doors and the good times and yummy food that we enjoyed there. But there are more restaurants that are closing locations all the time that we are going to miss. 

It was Faqtoids that released a long list of restaurant chains that are on the brink of disappearing and I thought the article was so interesting because there were so many chains that I remember visiting that I haven’t visited in 10+ years. It’s not because I don’t like their food, but there are fewer locations to visit plus when I am looking to eat convenience is huge. I will admit I don’t want to drive all over town I would prefer going somewhere that is just down the road.
