I hope dine in is included, otherwise someone is having a headache wasting money into a location that is going to fail quickly. Pizza Hut has been smart in recent years adding smaller dine in areas to pick up/delivery locations.

Do you know where in Hampton Village Pizza Hut is going into? I can think of the former Sonic and Hampton Buffet has logical locations.

Literally next door to Publix (think it was formerly a dry cleaners), going down the plaza...next to the new Compass Dental, Nail Place, Hibachi Japan, UPS Store, Goga Studios (now iVIVA), Hampton Buffet.

3 food places in a small strip. We'll see - it is a bit strange.

It is getting harder to find pizza places which offer a decent dine-in atmosphere. I remember going to Pizza Hut as a child and thinking it was a nice atmosphere to have pizza. I know they've moved more toward a pick-up only kind of place, which is disappointing. While I certainly enjoy having pizza at home, when I'm in the mood to go out for pizza it would be nice to have it in a decent dine-in environment. Not that I would tend to choose Pizza Hut, because I wouldn't, but I still think there is an opportunity for someone to do dine-in pizza well. The places that currently have it seem to mostly have a crappy atmosphere.

Greektown Grille , in McBee Station near Publix, should open within the next few weeks.

Well if by chance it is dine in, hopefully it will be better than the one at in Five Forks. The service and the food was so inconsistent that we finally gave up on them. Its gone through at least 3 management changes since it opened a few years ago. Pretty much only do carry out from Dominos or Jetts now.

Did I miss the discussion of Metro Burger closing and being replaced with something with the name "Kitchen"? Couldn't say we told them so (in our previous Metro Burger discussion), but the writing was on the wall even before they opened their location at 1102 Woodruff Rd just last year.

Anyway, anybody have the "low-down" on the new place?

EDIT: Looks like someone decided to start a whole new thread on it: //www.city-data.com/forum/green...-business.html

Delaventura's on Old Buncombe Road in Greer has a good atmosphere. It has quite a following and can get super busy on the weekends, so go early. My stepdad is in love with their pizza. Like so in love that you cannot sway him and he thinks you're the stupidest person on the planet if you don't like it. It's good, but personally, I go for the zucchini fries. Lol.

Also in Greer is Wild Ace in downtown. I really like their pizza plus they have several microbrew taps...and fried pickles. Geez...I really like my fried foods.

On the chain side, I like Brixx at Greenridge. They have that flatbread type of pizza. I really like the Quattro Formaggio and the Brixx Salad.

But I digress. Back to your regularly scheduled opening and closing retail/restaurant thread...

I wish Jack in the Box had given that Woodruff Rd. store another chance. Closing the Congaree store nearby could have helped business, as those 2 stores were too close and competed with each other. Seems like that store near Magnolia and Target would be a prime location. I used to eat there frequently, but their remaining stores are a bit inconvenient for me. But I will say, as a whole, Jack in the Box seems to do a better business in Charlotte than they do here. But I do hope their remaining stores continue to operate.

Especially with the hotel being built right behind it. Jack probably would have done well.

I would like to see more fresh options myself. The only fast food I eat is Chick-fil-a, and that's probably once a month at best.

Maybe i'm missing the boat here.. But I just noticed today that the Blockbuster at the corner of Mauldin Rd and S Pleasantburg has a "For Sale" sign in the parking lot and "Store Closing" signs in the windows.
