Moya's ?

by joe.muller » Wed May 15, 2019 4:09 pm

Drove by the old Tumbleweed on Linn Station Rd today, next to the old Skyline (now closed) and TGIF (also gone.) It has long been vacant, but recently seen some activity besides geese and graffiti artists. There is a sign on it that says 'Moya's', claiming American cuisine. Anybody know anything about it ?

Looks like some very basic info on TableAgent, which appears to be something like Open Table. Casual service, inexpensive dining ...

Certainly looks like they are trying to cover every base where their description of the atmosphere: "Child Friendly, Romantic Dining, Dining Alone, Business Dining, Meet for a Drink, Quiet Conversation, Special Occasion, Vegetarian, Quick Bite, Date Night,"

It will be interesting to see how they do it seems like that whole area is very troublesome for restaurants to stay in business.

I’m bumping this to the top. We’re moving and I was doing some exploring after going to the delightfully small Plainview Kroger. I can’t tell if Moya’s is open, closed, not yet open, only lasted a brief time or what. Also, I can’t find any social media. Does anyone know anything about this place?

It's just as mysterious to me now as it was then, Robin! :)

They do have a website now, but it's very basic. Says "Opening soon."

I lived in Plainview in elementary and middle school. We never stopped going to that Kroger even though there was a closer one. Glad to know more than one person loves it!

I can't find much about Moya's. They have a bare-bones website that says they are opening soon and hiring:
http://moyaskitchen.com/

I also found a mention in Food & Dining-- "Moya’s American Kitchen serves Cajun/Creole dishes, pasta and seafood at 10000 Linn Station Rd." https://foodanddine.com/restaurant-comi ... fall-2019/

You'd think they'd at least have a Facebook page! Because that sounds delicious-- since the closing of Joe's OK Bayou, I haven't had any really good Cajun food locally.

I actually found another "Moya's Kitchen" that doesn't appear connected (different logo and it's in VA). I'm just speculating, but you don't suppose they are taking extra long to work out legal details on the name?

we can argue till the cows come home, but several items at Selena's at Willow Lake might be labeled "Creole" but (as they contain more chicken and less tomato) I'd call Cajun - and they're pretty good!

Can we talk about Couvillion? It might rank as Cajun/Creole also, but it's one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Agree . . . we hit Selena's more frequently, but more because of geographic convenience than food!
