Making your way down Soncy Road and I-40 you see it in all it's former glory. I'm talking about the old On The Border restaurant location that basically has seen better days and when I made the stop today for the cover photo had a few occupants outside that kept me from getting the front. So what's moving in to the former bad attempt at a Mexican food restaurant? Let's just say the waitresses will be a little more revealing at the soon to be Twin Peaks set to take over.

It's been in the works.

The first announcement came in 2018 when franchisor Permian Entertainment LLC came up with an agreement with Twin Peaks to open up locations not just here in Amarillo, but Lubbock, Abilene and Wichita Falls as well. The former On The Border building does have signs posted that applications have been made with TABC to serve alcohol and liquor at the location in the future. There is a pretty good chance that the building itself will also get a major makeover if not a compete demo and rebuild.

Eats. Drinks. Scenic Views.

Twin Peaks is part of the breasturant trend similar to Hooters, Tilted Kilt and Bikinis. Waitresses tend to wear more revealing outfits with a trademark plaid top and khaki shorts. On special occasions they have been known to wear lingerie outfits as well. The menu is a more diverse and offers everything from the standard burger fare to chicken, salad and a wide selection of beers and mixed drinks.

No word on an opening date but I'm sure they'll do well and it's nice to see the area come back to life. A boot barn has moved in next door with a Northern Tool on the way
