Around lunchtime Friday, we started getting calls from listeners wondering if Bush's Chicken at 5283 West Adams Avenue in Temple had closed down. Curious and fearing I might be losing one of my favorite lunch spots, I hopped into a station van and drove to check it out.

There was yellow tape across the entrance to the parking lot and a sign on the door saying the lobby was closed. I drove around back to where I'd spotted some trailers, and two gentlemen were outside talking.

To my great relief, the guys let me know that the restaurant is just undergoing some renovations and  maintenance work in the kitchen and will be open again next week.

Meanwhile, the Bush's location on 4609 South 31st Street is still open if you're craving tenders and sweet tea.
