History of the TGI Fridays Location

Original post made by Tom, Birdland, on Jul 18, 2007

Does anyone remember what restaurants have been in the building now occupied by TGI Fridays? Someone thought a Garcia's Mexican Restaurant was there around 1991, Bu I don't remember anything being there except TGI Fridays.

Yes indeed it opened as a Mexican restaurant. Our family ate there a few times. I don't remember if it's name was Garcia's, though.

There were 2 Mexican restaurants before Fridays came in, Garcia's was one, the other had a longer name and there was one in San Ramon for a while.

Would that have been Carlos O'Briens? That is what used to be in San Ramon, I think.
