Bolsa Owners to Open Two New Concepts in Former Jack’s Backyard Space

Christopher Jeffers and Chris Zielke (Team Chris) have taken over the former space known at Jack’s Backyard on Fort Worth Avenue and plan to open two restaurant concepts. One will be a family-friendly; the other will be a bar. (And it won’t pop up.) “Don’t have any names,” Zielke said. No other details from this reporter. Hey, let’s have a naming contest!!! St. Christophers? Christophers Crossing? Come on…

UPPITY DATE: Tim Byres is also one of the partners. Readjust naming program.

    I’m thinking “Jack’s Backyard” is a good name.

  • @joeat – funny!

  • I do have 1 request for either new space: can they get a toasted pimiento cheese sandwich on the menu??? I do miss that about Jack’s. 🙁

    This is kind of boring; I’m tired of this group, and the restaurants they own currently need A LOT of work in terms of service, cleanliness, etc. What happened to diversity?
