Hey Bryan Bowman, my fav bro-in-law, how have u been? Heard about your new bar and grill, too bad you didnt include your wife to go in partners with you since thats something she always wanted to do too. We all want to say HELLO and bet you'll have alot of explaining to do when we see ya next. Take care now ya hear?!

To the folks in Iowa: False information was printed; Bryan Bowman never finished culinary school; he wasn't a lineman for 24 yrs., he didn't get "nerves" blown out of his rt.elbow, our mom supported him most of their 13 years together...This is how he repays her. This is how she finds out about Kris...Down here in Texas, we weed out these kinds of people. He finally got his inheritance and forgets those he abandoned that helped him. We feel sorry for Kris and don't even know her, but we know he's a liar. Mom taught us to be forgiven...sometimes it takes a while. Good luck and farewell

Time you file for divorce dont you think? Dont know what kind of woman your new girlfriend is, but cant have us both. You've lied to me long enough & now I know why you didn't want me to come up last Thanksgiving thru Christmas. You weren't on a storm break. Yet, you kept me hanging on till I found out just 3 weeks ago. What kind of person have you become? I think that cold weather froze what brain cells you had left. Glad you were given the bar you wanted, now I know why you pick a place so far away. STAY THERE

Let me make it clear: You've been playing a game that has consequences from your actions. How long did you think you could hide all of this? You two are talking about marriage? Guess you do have to "take it slow"..duh, I have a wife in Texas that has been waiting for me, she thought I was trying to make Al & Claudette's place work...Your lies always catch up with you. You've been slipping alot lately, hard to live 2 lifes, huh? You aint welcomed here buddy boy, file for divorce and stop living in sin. Hopefully, she learns what kind of person you really are from this bombshell that was dropped on me March 29th.

To the editor of the Gazette or Traer Star Clipper: contact me for all the facts, no slander or false accusations. This Texas Lady wants this man put in his place and to stop deceiving the good citizens & patron of your town, why articles like this one even gets in the paper amazes me. At least get the facts and print the truth.

You told me you were using 4 of my receipes in the "kitchen" you were working at...potato salad, cole slaw, gumbo & stews. You even told me your mother was doing a cookbook. Make sure I get the credit and some proceeds would be nice. Don't forget where you learned these that I shared with you and were passed down from my family's generations of great cooks that never went to any school. They deserve the recognition.

You people should be nice to others as the bible stats! I have eaten there and it is a very nice place. This small town needs people who are willing to work hard to make something like this work!!! Keep up the good work and you have my blessings

I don't who you are Vicki but if your so upset about him not divorcing you why don't you divorce him!! The way I'm reading this is-he as made a life for himself and your VERY unhappy. He wants this small community to have a nice place for people to be able to have a supper club. I guess you wouldn't know what it's like in a small community. People want places like this so it helps out the town!!Brian and Kris- My family really enjoyed supper in your restaurant. We hope you keep up the good work and we'll see you again!!!!

lol This is how we do it in Texas? Weed ppl out? I am originally from Iowa, and I live in Texas, and have for quite a few years. Many ppl in Texas are arrogant hateful, racist bible thumpers who THINK they know it all. That my friend is how Texans act. You ppl from Iowa don't even want to know how your treated if your not affiliated with a baptist church LOL. If I had it to do over again, Texas would not be my choice of places to move to. The first year taught me a lot of things about the state that I would not even want to repeat it's that bad. If the weather was not bad in the winter In Iowa, my ass would be right back there.
Ps. Whoever owns the restruant I wish them the best of luck. Sounds to me like this person who posted this nonsence is just jealous!

We live near dysart and have been to the Iron horse.The Service and the food was great. I agree that this little town does need this business. and enjoy eatting there just like us. All you people in TX that keep downgrading this poor guy need to get a life and mind your own business! At least hes trying to better his life and make others happy in the process. Are your lives so boring that you need to cause problems for others? And Bryan, divorce that woman asap for before she ruins your business and life! Oh and by the way, I used to live in Mckinney,Tx and still have many relatives there in dallas. and they are not anything like you say texas ppl are. super giving and welcome everyone from any state pll may come from, so sounds like you ppl from tx posting all this bad stuff are the haters, jealous, and stuck on yourselves.
