The Lone Star Attitude is not only home to the famous Last Supper mural depicting Texas music legends as disciples, but it's also known for its burgers, brisket queso, and many other delicious menu items. That's why, over the years, LSA has become a beloved staple of the historic Denton square.

new york sub hub building and billboard

New York Sub Hub

This establishment was first opened in 1979. At that time, it went by the name “New York Subway by Denton.” Even though their name has changed, their outstanding customer service, low prices and delicious sandwiches remain the same. That's why New York Sub Hub remains a favorite among Denton residents.
