Hunky's 2


bishop arts week! day 1

This week was gonna be devoted to the Dallas neighborhood known as Bishop Arts anyway, cuz a buncha places are opening there. But then last Friday, the DMN did a big report on the area's prosperity (which i would link except i can't find it on the friggin' DMN site), so that made it a cosmic imperative. Opening next month: 2nd branch of Hunky’s, the Oak Lawn burger joint, in the old Gennie's Bishop Grill space. Owner Rick Barton, who himself moved to Oak Cliff, considered buying the Gennie's concept outright but didn't feel like doing chick-fried steak, so he's sticking w/ Hunky's tho he may expand the menu later.

321 N. Bishop Ave. no phone yet

Now here's an area of town that's becoming discovered. I suggest everybody gets out there before it gets too hot to handle. Maybe you'll want to rent a place there. If so, I know of a fab two bedroom available. VERY nice, Mary Worth.

Marc, the Indian scout of NYCE, found the link to that DMN story on the booming real estate scene in Bishop Arts.

NYCE and the "BADASS INJUN" (It's OK to use the INDIAN MASCOT during the regular season) are ALL OVER IT!

Is Hunky's a basic hamburger-and-fries places or is it "gourmet"?

Hunky's (giggle). That just sounds gay. And on Cedar Springs no less. He, he.

twisted: so sorry. have discovered that the really HOT area is lower Greenville, specifically Richmond Ave. Everyone wants to live there. I feel so lucky that my neighbors in Apt. 2-g convinced me yers ago to buy two houses on the street. if you want, i could rent you one.

Greenville ave is totally 1990s. I say sell those two houses before you're surrounded by multi-story condos and ugly new housing. Why you can buy one house in oak cliff for half of what you can sell one of yours for. I like this one

Bishop Arts! Man, I miss the soda store there ...

doris i would think a big metro area like DC would have soda galore?

m.b., i don't think the burgers at hunky's are very gourmet. but i only went there once, years ago. the raves i read are always about some burger they do that's covered w blue cheese. for gourmet burgers, i love Who's Who, in highland park village. they have kobe beef burgers as well as a turkey burger w cranberry sauce

Ifs & And Butts (cq) not only has a wide variety of hard-to-get sodas, but it has a fine selection of cigarettes,too. And, Le Miz, you can smoke in there.

Alas, no soda shop like the one in Bishop Arts.

But we do have Virginia kobe! At Who's Who prices. According to a friend at the USDA, no kobe has been sold in the U.S. for ages. It's all meat from cattle in the wagyu lineage, raised in the traditional style. I wish someone would feed me Sapporo and massage my belly.

She's right, it is all Wagyu, and most of the stuff in this area comes from Yama Beef.

What about HP Pharmacy? That's got a soda fountain. And it's like a real pharmacy too with a real Pharmacist.
