Jimmie, Sherrie Hodges new owners of restaurant

After less than a year out of the business, Jimmie and Sherrie Hodges, former managers of Texas Corral restaurant, have jumped back into the food service industry with their recent purchase of Brady Creek Restaurant, formerly Catfish Cove located on the north side of Brady. Temporarily closed in order to give the restaurant a new face-lift and thorough cleaning, the Hodges’ re-opened for business last Friday. The Hodgeses fulfilled their one-year lease agreement to manage the Texas Corral in June and have since been scouting for another restaurant in the local area. They purchased Catfish Cove from Rocky and Loretta Jacoby on Tuesday, Dec. 18 and have now assumed ownership. Aside from the new name, the building has also undergone a few minor cosmetic changes which will continue through the following months. Although the Hodgeses plan to primarily stick to previous food items offered, they also plan to introduce new items to their daily menu such as rib-eye steaks, a roast beef plate and a “blue plate special” or daily special offered every Monday through Friday. During the winter months, the Hodgeses plan to add chili and beef stew to their menu. In addition, the Hodgeses plan to offer the traditional Friday night all-you-can-eat catfish buffet as well as a few other selections. “We want to give our customers a choice and not just offer one special,” said Hodges. Though newcomers to the food service industry, the Hodgeses are no strangers to the Brady/McCulloch County area. Sherrie was employed with Wal-Mart for eight years while Jimmie spent several years in the trucking industry, including nine years as terminal manager for Schwerman Trucking. “We’re glad to be back in business,” said the Hodgeses. “We’ve missed the customers who supported us and we hope everyone will stop by and visit with us. “As always, we still guarantee friendly, courteous service and a clean atmosphere.”
