The restaurant and brewery business in Corpus Christi continues to grow. Two new restaurants and a brewery recently opened their doors.

Nueces Brewing Co. is one of six local microbreweries in town that are now open on the corner of Water and Born Streets in downtown Corpus Christi. The business at 401 Water St. was owned by business partners Cale Moore and Brandon Harper and was once a car dealership.

With its unmistakable appearance, the 67,000 square meter building houses a tasting room and a 15-barrel brewhouse with space for 90 fermentation barrels.

On the Corpus Christi side, two local favorites recently built second locations. Buffalo Wings and Co. plans to open its new location at 58-2 Yorktown Blvd. by the end of the summer. Flanagan’s Southside at 2306 Airline opened in June.

New to Buffalo Wings and Co., which will be twice the size of its sister location, is a covered outdoor terrace with flat screen TVs, games, a water master, and live music. Also, 48 beers on tap will be offered at the new location, not the eight at the original location at 10529 South Padre Island Drive in Flour Bluff. The Southside location will also feature a brunch menu.

Southside Flannagan’s has a different feel than downtown. For one, it’s much larger and has space for dartboards, a boxing machine, and pool tables. A Hawaiian artist was hired to create some pieces for the restaurant to create a real island feel.

Flannagan’s is open every day of the year and livenes up the atmosphere with evening DJs.

Other new restaurants that have recently opened include Freddie’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and a Southside location for the Brewster Street Icehouse.
