The intersection of Central Avenue and 24th Street West will have a new look in the upcoming months. McDonalds tore down their previous building on Central Avenue to construct a new restaurant on the corner. A Conoco Gas used to be there before it was torn down.

Just up the road, a couple of other new restaurants will also open for business in the near future.

Noodle House, A Taste of Asia restaurant, will be opening in the building that formerly housed the Little Caesar's Pizza at 2325 Central Avenue. A Taco Bell was the first to occupy that location back in 1974 before Little Caesar's moved into the space in 1998.  According to a story in the Billings Gazette, the restaurant planned to open by August, and owners says it will "be like a Southeast Asian street vendor."

Construction of Billings' first Panera Bread is underway on the west end. Located between Winco and Natural Grocers, a preview of the new building at 110 S. 24th Street West revealed an outdoor patio and drive-thru being part of the new restaurant.
