Bill Been, along with his wife Jo Anna, fired up the ovens at Myron's in 2003. Bill, whose first
name is actually Myron, spent over 20 years working for several well-known steakhouses perfecting his art before he and Jo
Anna decided to venture out on their own. The Been's first steakhouse was, and still is, housed in a remodeled 1924 movie
theater in downtown New Braunfels, Texas. Should you be called to the restaurant's office, you'd find yourself in the
theatre's projection booth.
The New Braunfels continues to be a resounding success. Bill and Jo Anna's daughter, Jenny, and husband Steve have taken over the reins managing the New Braunfels restaurant.
Patrons enjoy the restaurant's intimate booths, ornately stamped
tin ceilings, and perfect lighting. In 2011, the Beens decided to make it easier for folks in San Antonio to partake in
their wares by opening a second location in Alon Town Center at the corner of NW Military Highway and Wurzbach Parkway.
The new location's more modern atmosphere is decidedly different as compared to the New Braunfels store - featuring a
very large bar with outside seating, a dedicated wine room, and overall "Texas Modern" decor (you'll have to see it to
understand). However, while the Been's restaurants both have tasteful, inviting ambiance, they are more famous for their
steaks, wine, and service.
"We couldn't be more excited about how New Braunfels has received us over the years, and look forward to just as many
years in San Antonio."
