Chris Drive Inn

4526 Bryan  -  Phone Tenison 0382
Hickory Smoked Bar-B-Q  -  Cold Beer  -  Fast Service  -  Free Delivery

Chris Drive Inn was located on the south side of Bryan between Carroll and Peak about where Holly forms a "T". The site was at various times home to a plumbing company, a cafe, and several lounges, including Tom & Jerry Lounge in the early 1960s. It was apparently a two-story building with living quarters above the business, but both floors were rented as apartments from time to time. From the phone number I'd guess this matchbook was from the early 50s but so far I've found no other trace of this long lost bar-b-q joint. The address is no longer even listed as a property in Dallas County tax records.
