Are tax breaks still necessary in Houston current climate? I mean, if Houston is booming then why offer the incentives?

That Fiesta looks really nice. I hope they fix them all up. The Fiesta store near my house is terrible. Dirty, dark, outdated – with really narrow entrances. The selection is horrible. The prices are no big whoop. They should just knock it down and start over.
@ZAW: Agreed, it’s about time that Fiesta started to take their business more seriously. They had to close a couple of inner loop stores to realize they have to become more competitive. The midtown one needs an overhaul before they build another 5 story ‘Luxury’ apartment complex there.
