When I was in school, they had another location off 288 near the Kroger. Not sure if it's still there, but I used to go there at least once a week since I lived in the Waterford apartments behind ULTA.

I think the real issue is that when a school has to telegraph plans publicly people with adjacent land see dollar signs.  When approached they are happy to sell you property for 4 times its appraised value.

It is not like the school sets out to hurt small businesses,  but the media, alumni and students  are generally sympathetic to the narrative of big corporation vs tiny family business that gets run out as leverage against the school. The prospect of eminent domain is the leverage the school has to get negotiations into a reasonable zone.

I believe all of the Union food joints are owned by the school as franchises so they wouldnt be able to do that, but I am told there is interest in trying to secure them a spot in the new development across the street. That seems like a good outcome for all.

Is the yankee who owns the IHOP by campus that won't even fix his damn roof still fighting with UNT?

That place is beyond an eyesore.

Hate those damn Yankees!

I think once the new IHOP opens at Rayzor Ranch, they’ll close the IHOP on I-35

Admittedly I have only started using the term yankee because it's gone out of style.

Just let me fix some of those roof tiles...

And there's nothing wrong with it, I just appreciated it based on the thread title and topic. Shall we....fuggedaboutit?

So much nostalgia associated with that place. Still remember my go to: #7 toasted. Mouth waters just thinking about it.

To be fair though, we don't have subways here in Texas.    And renaming the restaurant to "Juarez DrugTunnel Hub" doesn't quite have the same ring.

If its academic mission is anti-good ass sandwich, then I want nothing to do with it.

The owner of the location on University (Mike) is a UNT Alum who worked for Ken while a student, along with my roommate.  They were so good at it that they pretty well ran the place for Ken for a few years.  Somehow Mike has managed not to have to change the name from Sub-Way to Sub Hub, which I assume was due to a lawsuit from "Subway".

Just did a war-drive on Google maps, apparently it's no longer there.  In the very beginning, Ken had a partner who had a location near SMUt, but it didn't last long.  There even might have been one in Austin on the drag then too - not sure.  There was also a NY Sub-Way in Carrollton for a time in the 80s - if I'm remembering correctly, on Josey just north of Beltline.

... and Ken is a bonafide Yankee, of the New Jersey variety.  But he retired a few years ago to be able to do more hunting, and his sons, who were born and raised in Denton, now run the place.

Ken is from New Jersey. Always liked him. Probably are their three times a week when the Sig Ep house was down the street. Site is now known as Clark park for you youngsters. Ted was Kenny’s partner for a while. I was good friends with Ted’s brother, Jeff. Jeff was a Sammy, a lot of Sammis were veterans around that time. Jeff would get off after closing and always end up stopping by the house with a late night sandwich. I liked #18. We lost Jeff to pancreatic cancer a few years back. Jeff and Ted started a sandwich shop across from uta also but when they built that thru campus underpass it put them out of business during construction. That is my blast from the past but I have tons of memories around that little old sandwich shop.

Whispers..... NY Sub Hub was never really that great. It's more of a nostalgic feel good place for alumni.

I have gotten my affairs in order and my will written out so I can make the following statement:

I would rather have had a Riprock's burger and fried green beans, oriental express, Sabrosita, the taco place across the highway, or the stuff Katz was serving before eating some generic sub with NY paraphernalia plastered on the walls.

It was nice knowing y'all.
