Halton Road Grill (formerly Back Yard Burgers) closed down as of this week. Just not enough business for them - probably due to surrounding competition. Sad to see them go.

Geez! It was only two months ago that they rebranded, wasn't it?

Closer to four, but your point is well taken.

Ah, okay. Their Facebook page said the grand opening was in late July, but I guess it just took them a while to make it official.

BY Burgers always seemed too tucked away. Real easy to miss driving by.

That must have been a PR event to gin up business. The new signage went up no later than June 14, the date when the Halton Road Grill Facebook page displayed a photo of it, along with a caption reading: "New Name. Same Crew."

A fair gambit. If you're going down the crapper.. You have to do something to shake things up. Also, remember.. That was the only Backyard Burgers that lasted here.. They built one in Simpsonville that was gone within a year I think.. Stayed vacant for a good while before Zaxby's took it over. Wasn't there another one way on up Wade Hampton as well?

There was a Subway in Woodruff that apparently got sick of the $5 footlong game and broke away from Subway and became 5 Star Subs, I think.. It lasted another year or two..

I'm concerned, a bit, that the Golden Chick 'event' this week was such a gambit. But.. It's also under new ownership, I understand, and that generally means that corporate opened the locations to get a toehold in the area and then sold them to a franchisee. So, I doubt that it was totally due to bad business (Which I think they did have at least something of a problem with) but moreso to introduce themselves to the community.

My understanding is that they had cars backed up out onto Pleasantburg the day they did that sale. And, i'm pretty sure that anyone who decided to get one of their yeast rolls is now addicted and will be back.. Even if it's JUST for the yeast rolls. Those things are laced with crack, I think.

That's too bad. My family and I liked their food and it was nice to be able to drive to ONE place here that didn't involve traffic.

I ate here last week. The food was delicious and the price was reasonable. Having a seafood quick service restaurant is a good option.

If Captain D's is looking to re-enter Greenville County, Long John Silver's should be looking at options to grow with additional locations also.
