*Update since article was written. There was a fire in the kitchen and a water leak that caused the temporary closure. They hope to get it back open soon.

It’s been about a year since Walk Ons opened up over on Soncy. I went to their soft opening when they first opened at the end of July in 2020. I have been there a few times since. I have tried several things on their menu.

For appetizers I tried the Boudin Balls and the alligator. As far as main dishes I have tried the catfish Atchafalaya, the Buffalo chicken sandwich, and the redfish tacos. Oh and the dessert we had the Krispie Kreme Bread pudding. There was not a meal that I didn’t enjoy.

So a year later and they are still going strong. When I drive by the parking lot always seems to be busy so that is a great sign.

I drove by yesterday and it was pretty empty. The parking lot was like a ghost town. So I had to figure out what was going on.

I found this on their Facebook Page:

We apologize foe the inconvenience but unfortunately we are closed for the time being. We are working on getting an issue resolved and will keep you all updated as to when we will be open again. Thank you.

That really is all the message said. No details on what the issues are. Not sure if it is some kind of break down in the kitchen. Or staffing issues. Just something that forced them to close on Monday without any real warning.

So if you have the craving for some great food from Walk Ons you may have to wait. I will be keeping an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
