Oh how time flies! Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger Bar is a year old.
Not only has the restaurant brought much-needed quality beer and food to the neighborhood, it has helped to transform a corner that, since it was home to the Texas Trap, was an eyesore. I vaguely recall when it was Texas Trap, and, as memory serves, the ambiance was different from the hip classy-dive vibe that entered with Goodfriend.
Goodfriend owners Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling remember what it was like before they moved in.
“I used to drive by that corner every day. It was a dark, crime-ridden area—it looked miserable,” says Tobin. “We decided to join the team at Good 2 Go Taco in an effort to improve the surrounding area and make it a safer place for our neighbors to enjoy.”
