UPDATE NOV 1, 2018
Just a short update this time, but an exciting one. Of two Chinese restaurants, we were sorry to say goodbye to one old friend yesterday in Sin Sin, but we will soon say hello again to another old friend – Taste of D-Light. We have waited for what seems like forever in hungry time. It was January 2016 when Taste closed up shop on Reynolds Road and sold the building. Not quite three years later, on the third week of November 2018 is when they have set the target date to re-open. That’s Thanksgiving week, so maybe you’ll get a Taste before diving into the tradition turkey and dressing.
UPDATE AUG 30, 2018
The sign is going through the Bryant Development Review Committee to be approved. Here is how it will look.
UPDATE AUG 1, 2018
Wow, It’s been a minute since I updated. The building has walls now with exterior and even a sign up that says “Chinese Restaurant.” But it’s still not open. I’m watching.
UPDATE April 9, 2018
It’s time for an update on the Chinese restaurant going in at Highway 5 North next to the Fred’s complex (west of Springhill Road). It’s been since the end of 2016 since we’ve seen anything happen to the property that Jerry and Lee Jones bought. But the photos I took above were from Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday of last week. There is now a building where no building stood for many months.
Taste of D-Light opened in 1997 and operated at 3200 N Reynolds Road in Bryant for about 19 years until selling the building and auctioning off the equipment. The Joneses wanted to retire and finally did so. However, it wasn’t long until we heard about a reboot as a drive-thru only restaurant.
I’d like to say that I have an interview with the owners and give you great details and perpetuate the myth that I know everyone and everything in Saline County, but I actually don’t know these folks or how to contact them since they aren’t open for business currently.
I’d like to be able to say when they plan to open, whether they will be hiring, what their hours and menu will be, and even if they’ll have the same name for the restaurant. I can’t tell you any of those things right now.
However, social media is pretty awesome, and I feel secure that someone reading this is going to be able to add to the story. So if you’re that person, please comment! Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on social media. And thanks!
