I found it odd that someone else reported that Grandy's closed "between 10 and 20 years ago." You'd think a reporter would actually go out and find some facts.

We spent this morning going through some official records, and the best guess answer we came up with is 2004, which is when the corporation filed for bankruptcy and the property changed ownership. A quick call to the Grandy's headquarters confirmed our guess.

Grandy's rolls were legendary, but the cheap chicken fried steak was a deal.

The Tech Cafe will make the former Grandy's building, located at 4631 50th Street, their fifth location in Lubbock. I'm sure they'll do a great job, but next time I stop in Abilene, I know where I'm having dinner.

For you travelers, it looks like Grandy's still has 34 location in Texas.
