Huston Street is known for saving baseball games, now he’s saving Austin’s Caribbean food cravings

Posted March 22nd, 2016


Huston Street is a Texas legend and one of the best former Longhorns to go and pitch in the majors. But he’s not just one of the best closers in baseball any more.

He’s now venturing into the real estate business. And yes, he’s bringing a restaurant to the Austin downtown area.

Austin 360’s Matthew Odam caught up with Street to get a few more details on his plans for the old Taco Cabana site on Riverside and Lamar. Street is opening a Pollo Tropical which Odam describes this way: ” The fast-casual restaurant serves Caribbean-inspired dishes like roasted chicken, grilled shrimp wraps and sweet Caribbean ribs.”


Sounds delicious.
