Welcome :D Great place to advertise. Hey this looks like a good place to have a good meal at a good price. When I was just a young man I worked at Brookshires at Madison Park. Question ? Same owners or new ?
Great menu :clapbig:

Texasbelle 08-22-2007 05:17 PM

Has anybody eaten here? If so, give us a review.

Isaac-Saxxon 08-22-2007 05:43 PM

I bet Allen has been there what say you great leader :rolleyes:

I used to eat there all the time.. but this would have been back in the late 80's early 90's or so... used to work there in that Gilbert office center, was right next door to Madison Square Garden. The food was definitely great back then.. but I haven't been there since then.

Ditto, but I'm glad to be reminded of it and will go back again and check it out! Welcome aboard!:)

There was a Brookshire's Tasty Bakery over there that I worked at for a short time after I got out of the army. This would've been circa 91'. What were your dates and location, Isaac?

Weingarten's....now there is a memory. I remember going to the grocery store as a child there. Great pictures! They bring out fun childhood memories.

Al Swearengen 08-22-2007 09:27 PM

Remember the Weingartens in Bossier? Right there at the intersection of Barksdale and Airline, where Ellis Pottery is. Yeah, those are some good memories.

AnimeSpirit 08-22-2007 09:30 PM

If anyone goes there, it would look good for SBLive! to tell say that you heard about the place here at Shreveport.com. :D

Texasbelle 08-22-2007 09:52 PM

Hey Al! Do you remember Gibson's off of Hearne? Or how about T.G. & Y.? Anybody remember shopping there?

Did my hitch for 75-1977 worked for Don Webster. I think I am a bit older than you Al. Does anybody remember the red head at El Chico's with the white horn rim glasses and croakies. She was not to good at getting the order right and had that bees nest on her head that she kept her pencil in :laugh:

I haven't eaten at MSG in a few years, but we used to go all the time and get burgers and cheese fries. It was my little brother's favorite restaurant, but we stopped letting him pick restaurants after he took us to some gay sports bar out on Youree Drive.

I'm never really driving by it so I don't really think about it much. Maybe SBLive will jog my memory.

I think Brookshires was across the street (fern? ockley?) from Madison Park next door to El Chico's. Bought my first box of "space food sticks" from that Brookshires. Also plenty of grape and rootbeer Fizzies! :D
