Restaurant row developing along Call Field Rd.

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - The addition of two new restaurants on Call Field Road is turning the street into a restaurant row.

While new eateries seem exciting the news has those who live in that area left with mixed emotions.

Thomas Gallagher, Back Alley Barber Shop business owner, whose business is behind the new Buffalo Wild Wings location, believes the new location is not the best.

"I thought it would be better if they put it somewhere else like maybe where the Jalapeno Tree is or something because those people up there, they are going to have a hard time sleeping and the traffic is going to be even worse than it is now," Gallagher said.

Buffalo Wild Wings is moving from Sikes Senter Mall to Call Field Road, across from Braums.

Which the general manager there, Callie Mitchell sees it as a good thing.

"I think more business is good business," Mitchell said. "So if it keeps traffic busy that's more people for us so I think its good."

Meanwhile, on the other side, nearby neighbors like Trent Jolly say they are excited about Hooters.

"I was kind of happy because my first time I was with my father and I actually got a picture with some of the staff," Jolly said. "At least people will have places to stop by and get some food, and definitely some good wings."

Hooters is going to be put in the old Logan's Roadhouse near Faith Village and Call Field road.

Kenneth Weeks, another neighbor who lives nearby the new Hooters location says more options of food is what he looks forward to.

"The growth of a town and community is businesses coming in and creating jobs," Weeks said.

He adds when it comes to traffic, he believes with proposition C passing this weekend, the extension of Maplewood should help.

"It will make it easier access for us to come and go and you won't have the traffic congestion like you have in the bigger cities," Weeks said.

Both Buffalo Wild Wings and Hooters are expected to open mid-summer.
