I am looking for a restaurant that was in a movie, I just can't remember which one. I believe that it is just off 6th street, or not far from it.
Can anyone help?

    We talking bout Dazed & Confused? Shot in ATX. I haven't seen it in a while.

      Hmmm - Top Notch was shown in Dazed and Confused. Office Space had Chotskie's, which was the old Alligator Grill.

      Maybe this will jog your memory:

      The first one that comes to mind for me is Texas Chili Parlor in Grindhouse (in the Tarantino "Death Proof" half). I remember there was something funny about it... like the outside was Guero's but the inside was TCP? Something along those lines... maybe that helps? :/

        Quackenbush's was in Slacker, but it no longer exists on Guadalupe.

          I think El Camino was in that roller derby with Ellen Paige

            Blood Simple was at Dessau Dance Hall. Not a restaurant, but, just saying.

              If you can identify the movie, it might help. If you don't know the name, who was in it? What was it about?
