I told him they should've opened it a long time ago and he just smiled. He said he's very happy to be there and see all the business because it is making his life a LOT better. I'm guessing that was his bank account he was talking about
Not that this place needs another review but I would defiantly have to give it a big thumbs up. The fries are fantastic and the ice cream...omg!!

Ok- where exactly is it? I drove on Potranco from 1604 to Culebra yesterday--I didn't see it-- where did I miss it?

Was anyone without electricity this morning? We are in the Amhurst subv and around 5:30 am we lost elec- but only for a few moments-- I was just wondering if anyone knew why? Or maybe it was just a friendly reminder for me from CPS

We were out of electricity too and my wife was awake when the lights went out. I immediately called CPS to report the problem and the lights were back up around 8 am. Something about a blown transformer (Autobots, engage! LOL).

Anyways, traffic was backed up really bad on Military going into Ellison Drive. I can't believe how much traffic that street gets! :O

Yeah we did too - about 5:30. It was out for about 10-12 minutes. The whole block was out. Had brown outs for about an hour or so after that....

No word on what happened, power came back too quickly for it to be caused by an auto accident or something. My wife was already up, said she saw a bright flash out one of the windows, maybe they were replacing transformers or something...

BTW, I went to the Freddy's FC restaurant on Potranco/151 and it was delicious! Their fries are good and so are the burgers. I haven't tried the hotdogs or desserts but I got a coupon that said I get a free topping on my next visit

It's just east of 151 on the north side of Potranco. All by itself.

Yeah- my kids were sleeping in the same bed and they were freaked out- screaming- they said we saw a light flash in the window and then the lights went out-- you know kids make everything sooo dramatic!

My hubby would laugh at your Autobots comment! LOL I'll have to show him when he gets home. He's 32, but still a kid at heart when it comes to transformers!
