This Friday we enjoy (I hope) a glimpse of Austin, or at least a corner of it, back in the early ’90s…
This picture of the GM Steak House, which had been searing steers for thirty years, was taken in 1990 or 1991 while I was waiting for the bus on the Drag between MLK and 21st.
I set the picture up and waited for a car to come along. While doing that, one of the employees at the GM got on a PA system and started serving up some of the attitude and commentary for which they were famous.
Fortunately, I did not have to endure the insults for long as the bus came to whisk me away shortly after the picture was taken.
I think there’s only one GM Steak House left now, and I think it’s only open for breakfast and lunch.
