I can't believe this thread is still going on about some honkytonk. Bowie must be really bored. Ya'll just go to the honkytonk and get drunk and chill.

I went this week. This is what I saw. On the positive side.
1. Food was good and not over priced. 5 different sandwiches ordered - all were happy.
2. No children (while I was there) were out of line / drinking
3. Place has potential to be a good happy hour, sports watching, meet up with friends kind of place.
The bad
1. No waitress service out on the floor. Even though there were 4 bartenders standing with nothing to do. Not that they were being lazy, it is just the way the service was designed.
2. Pool tournment that night. Some / most of the players were not from this area and with a $1,000 purse it brought some real hustlers out from under the rocks. There is going to be some major fights.
Suggestions
1. Even though I smoke I really don't mind stepping outside.
2. Get someone on Friday / Saturday nights to watch the cars that the kids are sitting in drinking before coming into the bar and do not let them in. This is going to cause more problems and backlash towards "The Rack".

New business is always welcome. The Rack is a welcome establishment. I have been there several times, different days of the week, different times of the day. The food is great. There is no need for "service" other than with a smile and you get that. I like it and I don't drink. The atmosphere is good too. If you get drunk and go out to get in your car, you deserve to be stopped if you are the driver. So Go Bowie Police! Otherwise, have a designated driver and stumble to your car safely...knowing someone will get you home. I don't see a problem here. All you haters need to move...we don't need you here.

Looks like they are keeping the police busy. Drove through about an hour ago and two cops had cars pulled over right by the place. I'm glad! I'm so sick of these people serving kids beer until they get drunk and drive. Do they have morals or is it the all mighty dollar causing this. If they started a petition on removing alcohol from Bowie I would sign it in a heart beat.

If you know for a fact that they are serving minors liquor and you do not report it to the TABC, then you are no better than the ones doing the serving.

Lol. Are you that inbred that you think only one Tom is on Topix? Quit throwing out names when you have no idea.

Hint(for the inbred): My name is not Jason. Shocker I know.

I was driving through the downtown last night. I counted 2 BPD and 1 sheriff cars parked in different locations around the corner from the bar.

Someone told me that this was posted. I quit coming to this site due to all the haters. Love you all. However, I did not post the statement above. So enjoy beating each other up. I wish you all the best. Think about it, there are probably more than just one person named TOM.
This msg was posted by Tom - owner of Legacy Cleaners and I approved this msg.
