Two Brothers plus burgers
Two Brothers BBQ and Burger Grill opened Thursday in the former gas station/car lot spot at the corner of Douglas and Hillside. It's set up sort of like a Sonic Drive-In, where customers drive up to a stall, place an order, and have their food brought out by carhops. There's also seating for 55 inside. The restaurant, which will serve Two Brothers barbecue plus burgers, hot dogs, fries and onion rings, is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
Tropics sandwiches back
Lunch business got slow, so the Tropics Lounge at 2705 N. Broadway stopped serving its famous sandwiches. But customers have been begging owner Stella Cruz to bring them back, and she's finally relenting. Cruz will reinstitute service of the mile-high ham, the Reuben, the hoagies and more starting today. Sandwiches will be available starting at 11 a.m. until the kitchen closes (around midnight) Mondays through Fridays. They're available on Saturdays starting at noon. For more information, call 316-425-5553.
