Anybody know what is going on at the old LoneStar/Garcia's site in Eatontown - south of the Mall??
I drive by everyday and noticed some construction equipment in the parking lot.

    I read something in the last couple of months about a new place going in there, but can't remember what one it is - Big help I am!!!

        The Holmdel Houlihan's is very popular so hopefully this one will be also.

          Another 'I'm old' moment--I remember going to the Garcia's with my friends in high school.

          As faceless chains go, Houlihan's is actually a welcome addition!

            I did too. And was very upset when it closed. I never went when it was Lone Star but will go to Houlihan's.

              Me too! Didn't it move to the mall before it finally closed?

                  I like the ribs at Houlihan's so we may try the new location.

                  And Garcia's made such good margaritas.
