What is the deal with 8131 Forest Lane? Is this restaurant location cursed? I haven't lived in North Dallas for that long, but I've already seen this restaurant location change from Hawk's Catfish to Hall's Chicken (which was open in February 2010 and then closed within a year) to Watch Ya Fingas, (their website says they opened January 11, and they're already closed) to the best name yet: Fudgy Freeze.
Fudgy. Freeze. It's no Fat Ho Burgers, but if you're looking for a photo op restaurant name, it's pretty solid. (Frozen solid, even.) I just hope it's there the next time I drive down Forest Lane.
