Visitor Tips and News About Starship Pegasus - Closed
Although still closed as of May 2010, the owners are apparently still active trying to find a new use. The exit contains a relatively new fast-food rest stop next to the Pegasus; perhaps this will increase the chances of a local buyer. Peering through the glass door, it appears the interior is in good shape. As of May 2010, there was a fresh placard containing info for prospective tenants and buyers.[Rick L, 05/12/2010]
Andy Gee writes: As of last weekend we are in the process of reopening the Starship as a Flea Market/Farmers Market. Eventually with enough volume it will become once again a restaurant.

Went by the Starship on my way to San Antonio. It's a shame that it is still shut down. Talked with some locals, but they refused to talk about it...(small towns, go figure).
I had stopped in when it was still open. Had the best darn pizza's around and their icec ream items were out of this world. I hope they can open another one. Dreams like this should never die.[Kathy & John, 06/21/2009]
It's still there! Somebody's kept it clean and free of graffiti on the outside. I looked in the windows and it looks okay inside too. If you are driving this way, stop and see it. Even though it's closed, it makes a nice stop on an otherwise long and boring highway (I-35).[Mike, 08/18/2008]
On a recent trip through Texas we sorrowfully found Starship Pegasus is still closed. The large sign out front says that along with the "ship" you get lots of "space" ... nearly 7 and a half acres of Earthly terra firma. Please, the starship has been in dry dock far too long.[Mike Gassmann, 05/11/2008]
Unfortunately, the Starship is closed and the property is for sale. The restaurant used to have some of the best pizza around. Not enough aliens stopped in, though.[Craig, 06/17/2006]
