Workmen oversaw the move of an English double-decker bus into the interior of a new restaurant at the corner of Nicholasville Road and Reynolds Road on October 25, 1976. A new restaurant called Darryl's 1891 was being build in what had been the Don Q Restaurant. The new eatery was set to open in early spring of 1977 and promised a full-service menu featuring good food at reasonable prices. The bus was meant to serve as a focal point of the restaurant, creating a unique atmosphere. The Lexington location, now home to the Walgreens at Reynolds Road, closed in January 2002.
