I'm sure everyone knows where China Cafe is on Hwy 79. Before that even existed, was the restaurant TACO BUENO or TACO BELL, or both? I'm pretty positive we did have a taco bueno, then it was changed to taco bell..but im not really sure.

this is just out of curiousity.

I know it was once Taco Bell, but for some reason I think it was Wendy's. Nobobdy remembers that but me, so it may not be so. Don't know about Taco Bueno.

All I know are the health issues. Please, for the safety of your family, eat at the italian place in Henderson. Nobody dies there. They keep a clean place plus their after dinner coffee is awesome. The roast and grind the beans on site!

We had an Arbys it was close to that or at that site. Bad management and it went away. Too bad we needed it.

I thought Arby's was in the ole' Chicken Express building. I only remember that building as a Taco Bell. We've never had a Wendy's here. It was something called Hardee's or something like that.

It was called Taco Plaza. It closed, then became Taco Bell. Then Taco Bell moved and then came the Chinese place.

by old Wally (former Taco bell building) was Taco Plaza. my kids loved their Gringo Burgers (taco meat on a bun)among other foods.

the NOW Burger King was Arby's then DQ. Also DQ at the now Jalapeno Tree.

Correct - Remember and others- H-Town never had a Bueno or Wendy's.

We also had a KFC but I cant remember just where.(before they went in with TB) that closed when KFC in Kilgore fiasco happened.
I would love a Popeyes here. Tinsley's chicken had the best food (rolls) also... between Fairway Ford and old Randall Dodge, maybe the old Pizza Inn building?

Before Taco Bell moved into the China Plaza building, and after Taco Plaza. It was a "Home Cooked Meals" type thing. They only lasted maybe 6-12 months. I remember they had silver tiles on the ceiling and fancier booths/chairs. I also remember they had fresh green beans and they werent good at all!

Weve never had a Wendys or Taco Bueno. I believe where Burger King is now, it was first Arbys, then Dairy Queen now B.K.
Where J. Tree is now, FIRST it was the Orginal Dairy Queen(first one in Tx) then it was Char-burger Stockaide, then J Tree.
Hardees was where Chicken Express is now.
And where the Golden Chick is now, it was Jack in the Box.(for all you ppl new to Henderson :)) I talked to the old mngr from Jack, she said they closed down due to "not enough business".

I know it's been a long time, but I believe that the old Century 21 building on 79 was a KFC before Century 21.
