Places to go on the Lynx Blue Line

27 posts in this topic

See this on the UP Wiki: Lynx Blue Line Guide

I made this list to convince my wife to take a pleasure trip to a restaurant on the train (she supports transit, but will scoff at me wanting to go out of the way to use it). I figured it would be a good start to a thread on restaurants, bars, shops, and other destinations on the Lynx Blue Line.

Maybe you all can post recommendations of places to go, and by no means should the topic be limited to restaurants:

I think you covered everything there! Since I live in the Univ Area, it's a little more inconvenient since i have to drive past uptown and park. Anyway, this weekend I plan on driving and parking around E/W Blvd and taking it in to 3rd St Station and go ice skating at the Green and then take it back to the end of the line to go to Steak & Shake. That S&S has some past history late night outings from a few years ago, so it has a spot in my heart :thumbsup: . I love Pikes at E/W Blvd station and have once already and plan on using that stop as well as events in uptown to do an eat at Pikes/train to uptown for events also. I look forward more to when more opens along the line particularly in areas south of S. End. Aside from S&S, I only find myself riding the length to 485 for enjoyment.

Chipotle @ East/West.

The Home Economist @ New Bern has a great little premade foods counter.

And I have to admit, the one time I've been down to the 485 stop I walked over to Target for some Starbucks :)

Add Morehead st Tavern to the Carson station.

DD/BR to East/West

DD to Tyvola. Hooters is no longer at Tyvola so that can come off.

And add Manifest to Archdale :)

Don't forget the 22 movie theater complex across 521 at the end of the line. For those living downtown that's an easy trek.

Bellacino's can be added to the Trade St./CTC station. Nice place to go if you want something between a sports bar and a nice sit down place uptown.

Pollo Royale at Tyvola - great chicken and pupusas!

Panda Express at Tyvola for fast food.

And I can't believe you left out Sharon Rd W and the Light Rail Family Restaurant. ;)

This thread is a great idea. I don't have a destination to add just yet, but I have a suggestion. Can these suggestions be turned into a Spreadsheet (or a Wiki might work too). I'm not sure how the Wiki's work. Can any of us add to it once it's created? I seem to remember some restriction on those on here; like paying members. So, I guess I'm asking someone to pay for the priviledge of compiling this list. =)

I will get a wiki entry for this up and edit the first post with a link to it when completed. To answer your question about who can edit it, a wiki entry can be created/edited by anyone with at least 100 posts (which you just made, congrats!) or has a paid membership.

**EDIT** I have added the wiki page here:

Las Comolapas Restaraunt at the Archdale Station is really good if you like food from Honduras. The owner is really friendly and always hooks it up! I recommend the Pinchos de Pollo (sorry for the horrible Spanish Spelling)

Are there any hotels within walking distance of the Lynx line SOUTH of I-277? No by the hour places, please.

There are a few by the Woodlawn Station... A 4 Points by Sheraton and Howard Johnson I believe... as well as a Ramada a little further down.

There is one more just a bit closer to the station than the 4 Points. I thought it was a Howard Johnson but I just realized that hotel is a little further away near an Ihop. I am sure someone on here knows the name of it

I laugh at the naming of that restaurant. That would be such a trek to walk from the station to the Light Rail Family Restaurant... It seems way out of the way for that name.
