The backyard is now open for Cole’s Backyard Grill. The new, fast-casual concept restaurant from Homestyle Dining, owners of the Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses, serves bold backyards faves like burgers, steaks, Shiner® Beer Can Chicken and “Texas’ 2nd best chicken fried steak.” J&S broke radio and POP work for the July grand opening, followed by a Free Chicken Fried Steak Night in August that’s still the talk of residents and media in East Texas.
