In 1948 Peggy and Howard’s Beef Bar opened in what was a former location of a Sinclair gas station located on Hillcrest across from SMU, offering much of the same fare that Peggy Sue’s BBQ does today but in a cafeteria-style fashion. The Beef Bar closed in 1980 and it took another nine years for Peggy Sue’s to resurrect where it is today. Continue reading →

Last week we saw one of the first of what will be a busy and exciting restaurant opening season. East Hampton Sandwich Company opened its doors to a busier than normal crowd for a sandwich shop, but this is no ordinary sandwich shop, and certainly do not make ordinary sandwiches. We met with the dynamic Hunter Pond prior to the opening of his restaurant.
