Drakula, what up?

Never made it to Drakula. Tried to one time. I called them for hours, went up there with wife, son and d-in-law in a torrential rain storm to be greeted by a sign that said they were closed for two weeks for vacation. They had not changed their phone message to reflect that. About 4 other cars were there also. Funny thing, about 12 of us wound up at the Sunflower VN place next to Target.

I called them and gave them what for , for not updating their phone message then forgot about them until this past Sunday. I was in the area, saw their sign and went in. It seems that now it is a place called El Sur, or something like that, that has a Mexican like menu.

Question is what happened to Drakula? I regret never eating there, maybe, depending on why they closed. Just curious because the best I remember they were getting pretty good reviews. I think that was back in the Austin360 days. Not sure. Memory is going fast.

BTW, their website is still up but phone is NIS. Weird.

Thanks to all, J.

      We went to Drakula once. The restaurant had a smell like someone's grandmother's house - Clorox and cabbage - and it was boiling hot inside. They didn't salt anything.

            What I mean is ignore the second post, the one that says "ignore this". Sorry for the confusion.
