Abilene has been getting quite a few new restaurants lately. That got me to thinking about some great places we used to have and maybe wished we still had now.

Do you remember a place you and your family used to go when you were a kid? Maybe you and your high school friends had a fun place you liked to meet on the weekends.

I remember as a kid going to the pizza cave, which was technically Tony's Pizza Cave which eventually became Crystal's pizza. My dad loved to go to K-Bob's Steak House. In high school my friends and I would head over to Gardski's Loft and split a basket of those huge cheese sticks.

Food seems to hold a lot of memories. Here are a few places that my friends and co-workers remember fondly.
