The “Closed” sign says it all.
Bobby Goodner’s Cedar Street Grill at 10th and Cedar Street was a Duncan landmark for 19 years. Goodner spent his childhood visiting the building when it was Cedar Avenue Grocery, to get a Grape soda and a Butternut candy bar.
Years later he returned and bought the building which sat vacant for years and it became one of the best places in town to get a bacon double cheeseburger, coconut or chocolate pie or smoked brisket.
In June, Goodner passed his 68th birthday. A year ago, he said he was ready to enjoy his retirement days riding his motorcycle with his wife, Cindy. The building is now for sale.
An article was published in Duncan ... the magazine, June 2012 edition, featuring Cedar Street Grill.
It surely left many memories for anyone who entered its doors.
Gas prices have been a rollercoaster ride during 2013, with a spike in July and now a dip to $3.259 per gallon for regular unleaded as of Monday, Aug. 12.
Also, Duncan residents are making their opinions seen by posting signs, such as the one on the recycle cart, “I Give Up, You Win.”
Residents in Duncan, Marlow and Comanche are paying an extra $5 per month for the recycle cart, whether they choose to use them or not.
