Sidelines Sports Bar and Grill didn't last very long in Nacogdoches. In my opinion, it wasn't bad, it just didn't make it. If you didn't know where it was, it was located at 3205 North University Drive in Nacogdoches, in the same shopping center as Kroger.

For several months, it's been sitting vacant, with nothing but "S-I-D-L-I-N-E-S" in the windows. No lights, nothing else. Well, I suppose that - technically - there has been a "For Lease" sign out in front of the building since they closed.

However, the "For Lease" sign is no longer there. Instead, this is what's in front of the building:

TSM Lufkin - Mark Cunningham

"Opening Soon".

That's it. No explanation of what's going in, or when it will open. Just "Opening Soon". I do know that they're doing a ton of work there. There was a crew inside yesterday doing work. We drove by and could see ladders inside, and could see people inside working on it.

As you can see, all the previous signage is gone, as well as the lease signs. They haven't announced anything officially yet, so I'm waiting to see what's next for the location. I think - don't quote me on this - that I can remember it being three different restaurants before whatever's moving in this time. That's including Sidelines. So, I'm sure it's another food establishment of some kind, I'm just not sure on the specifics.

What about you? Do you have any insight into what's "Opening Soon"? Let us know!
