I was watching an old episode of COPS (filmed in 1993) where the police were pursuing an 80's Chevy Caprice Classic and as it was going southbound on University Avenue from Asher I noticed there were more businesses on that stretch of University and it looked like it was located in a nicer part of town, I know there were a lot of car dealerships, Haverty's, some sporting goods store (forgot the name).

Was University Avenue from Asher to I-30 a nicer part of town in the 90's than today? What were some other businesses that was located on University?

Short answer; yes. But most of the businesses moved after I-30 opened, and some of them moved out there. Of course that was "Automobile Row" back then but some are going back. There was also a miniature golf course, nice motel, pre-fab home dealer, motor cycle dealer, and others I can't remember. Maybe an auto supply store. Oh, and a big discount gasoline station.

Now, Col. Glenn at I-430 has become "Automobile Row".

I know there used to be a Denny's on University just south of Asher and I wonder what happened to that particular Denny's.

Denny's moved to Shackleford Rd between Chenal & Markham.

Coy's in little rock? I know jim had one in hot springs, but I guess I missed the one in little rock. I ate my first steak in a restaurant at coy' in hs when I was in about the 9th grade, that was really tastee after climbing to the top of the mountain.

Anyway, I was out in the university/Asher area last winter and it is not a place I would live or really want to return to for any reason. Barely recognizable from 25-30 years ago. The round theater was alway an interesting place to me and the original Mexican place behind it was good food at one time.
