For residents wondering what's happening on Main Street in Buda next to Cambria and Jordan's Food Truck park, the wait is nearly over. Mud Bugs A Cajun Joint owner Jeff Parks is slated to open his second business in Buda called J. Parks Saloon & Standard by mid-June at 407 E. Main St., Buda.

The new business was previously a house that has since undergone renovations and restorations for the past several months, a majority of which has been done using salvaged and repurposed materials. The saloon started as an idea in late 2021 with construction and demolition work mid-2022.

The saloon will have indoor dining which will be by reservation only and an outdoor bar area that will be first-come, first-served. The menu will feature a "Daily Dozen" much like at Mud Bugs, which are special dishes offered with limited servings per day.

"The food we're billing is elevated Texas soul," Parks said.

There will also be cocktails, beer and wine on the menu.

Additionally, the saloon will be adult only, for those 21 and older, and will be a cellphone-free zone so customers can "unplug" and "indulge."
