Drifters will be closed until further notice.
Sorry for any inconvenience, TABC shut us down today due to the Montgomery county judge going along with the governors orders.
TABC and the sheriffs department will be monitoring the property and have told us we cannot allow anyone on the premises at this time.

For those that don't this is on 149, little off the cheeseburger loop but thought some of you might frequent it. FYI

My guess would be they didn't serve food so technically was a bar only. They had a stand alone food trailer on the premises but would that allow the bar to be open since separate?

All above is speculation since I haven't stopped there in 2-3 years. 3 weeks ago I drove by and they were open I believe. Actually surprised me.

I think they tried to open as a food establishment, have to wait till they open for bars. My 2 cents.

Probably someone who is in local unity government who also owns a “food” serving establishment using their goons to snuff out fledgling competition.

I wonder if these businesses who have been shut down by the government still have to pay taxes to the same government that shut them down?

Hwy 149 from Anderson area south to Magnolia or so. Great curvy road the sport riders and pirates run from Houston to Yankees Tavern for a beer and cheeseburger. Drifters was a stop if bar hopping on the way to Yankees.

They have been closed since the shutdown started ,still riders would stop and take advantage of the shade and picnic tables. Rode by a week or so ago and there must have been 50-60 bikes there , but he was closed. Was going to re-open Saturday, I guess that did not work out.

Literally the fun police put an end to that today,,, cant have anyone having fun or socializing ya know.... plus I suspect the place is competition for another well connected pub owner who is also a politician in the area. Just serving and protecting and carrying out orders.

Never been to the place myself, but did see that big crowd last week.

BTW, if your are looking for something besides burgers on the Cheeseburger loop try M-Beaxs. Really good cajun food, and the Beax-dogs are incredible.

Ate there the first time I did the Cheeseburger loop....not bad. Decent prices... personally found some of the decor offensive so not my kinda place.

I went by there a week or so before bars or restaurants (sit down meals) were allowed to be open. Folks were sitting at tables. I don't know if they were eating or drinking. That day, a lot of Montgomery Sheriff vehicles went down that way. After that the TABC shut them down. Not sure of the status 5-28-20.
