Also loved the Hayloft, in the same parking lot.
The Spanish Galleon building was used as a haunted house one year, including the bathrooms. I remember it being odd, smelling urinal cakes in what was supposed to be a mental ward.

I remember the Spanish Galleon well! (I bought my first new car next door at Holiday AMC!) I never heard of any tie to Panchos....anyone know?
Pancho's and Spanish Galleon were both owned by a company called Pamex. A Pamex executive broke off from the company in the 1970's and opened the Hayloft on Forest Park Blvd if anyone remembers that place. They were famous for their chicken fried steak. I see on Google maps that the building that housed the Hayloft is still standing, but can't tell if it's inhabited.

The Hayloft Restaurant was opened in 1975, sitting next to the Trinity River. I was hired before they opened. We had to wear the most hideous outfits, blue jean skirts trimmed in white vinyl fringe, red vest, white cowboy boots, and a white cowboy hat. We made $1.00 an hour plus tips, but that was all of the restaurants. The chicken fried steak was to die for, but you took your life in your own hands with the salad dressings.

My favorite hush puppies barr NONE to this day were Bill Martins 3rd Edition. IIRC this was on Lancaster like near St.Rita, maybe? Long, thin, rolled in butter, dredged in cocktail sauce or ketchup...mmmmmm MM.

Yes, I remember the Bill Martin's on East Lancaster. I also loved their hush puppies.

I will check with my Uncle to see if he might have an old picture he was VP of Purchasing for Panchos
