In Topic: Richelieu Grill .. was it good food?

My 1949 city directory says that the Brantley-Draughan Business College was at 411 1/2 Main Street. I agree that it was much seedier in the 1970's with the Porno houses and strip joints.I don't know when they started closing early but I worked evenings downtown in 1983 and it was closed in the late evenings.

The Richelieu was originally at 1516 Main St. before the convention center was built.
We used to go to the one at 415 Main Street. in the early 80's. They had good food. It was a pretty clean place for that time and atmosphere downtown then. Mr Fletcher was the owner, I don't remember his first name but his son was a Fort Worth policeman that got killed on duty back in 1977. I never had any of their world famous chili but I remember there was a sign for it on the front window. It was on the E side of Main St. just about where you say, there was another business S of it before 4th St. At that time it closed at about 9PM.

Yes 10th St. did go through between Houston and Throckmorton. When I was a kid my father used to go to Hunnicutts barber shop on 10th and play moon in a room in the back of the shop.
My 1949 city directory shows the Stone Hotel located at 210 1/2 W 10th Street furnished rooms, Janie Parham owner lived on the premise widow of Bryan C..
George S. Hunnicutt's Barber shop was at 212 W 10th.

Clarks became Cooks, I don't know if they were bought out or it was just a name change. How do I collect my burger?
