I've noticed that places like Whataburger will give you canned drinks in lieu of fountain sodas. My mom said that Lubys allowed fountain drinks since their ice comes from San Antonio. How are restaurants handling this? I absolutely refuse to pay $2 for a bottled water, so I'm naturally curious of places to avoid if this water boil situation lingers.

Well, wherever you go you can decline a drink. The restaurants have to abide by what the health department is telling them and so they're serving canned sodas and no tea or lemonade made in house. You can spend what they're asking for their drinks or go without.

For what it's worth, I've been drinking tap water and ignoring the water boil this whole time and I feel fine. If they dump a big bunch of chlorine into the water supply I'll rethink it.

Yes. Agreed. I did refuse a soft drink the other day. I have also been drinking the tap water and I feel fine also. I miss my favorite Whataburgers with fountain drink and Starbucks. I really appreciate the ability to have water from a tap when it eventually does come back.

Fountain drinks at $1 give a similar margin as canned drinks at $2. The restrictions hammer profits for restaurants. Every single one of them wants it over.

We have all been drinking tap water and using it for everything and feel fine. It smells strongly of chlorine today though so I'm not going to drink it.

I do feel sorry for the restaurants and their employees. The CC leadership is a mess.

What is the deal with the water? I'm considering a visit down there and this has me concerned. Why does the water need to be boiled?

There was low chlorine in it for about a week and they issued a boil advisory. It's corrected now. They didn't detect anything harmful but did so as a precautionary measure.
