A new banner advertising a Christian’s Tailgate (pictured above) went up today on the vine-covered fence in front of the Amazón Grill at 5114 Kirby Dr., directly across from the Burger King between North Blvd. and Bissonnet St. The Cordúa Restaurants fast-casual outlet shut down yesterday after 15 years in the same location. The restaurants’ parent company, which also operates Américas, Artista, and Churrascos, plans to continue Amazón Grill as a delivery-only business.
As of today, the space is being renovated — with plans for a quick turnover and reopening as a fifth location of Christian’s Tailgate Bar & Grill on October 1st.

I always liked Amazon, even the location on Gessner. The Kirby location had bad car thefts in its parking lot though. Saw glass there lots of times. Wish they would have gone with a different ordering website for their new online concept. The one they have is buggy and looks out of date.
This was a Jack in the Box in a previous life, right?
HCAD and CClerk says it was Luke’s Hamburgers #9 from 1983, then owned by Foodmaker, which was the former name of the former parent company of JITB, so yes.
Yes it was a Jack In The Box. I’ll miss Amazon!
