Is there a war against fast food in arlington?

    seems like all of the fast food places in N Arlington that haven’t already been closed down, and slated to be closed down.

    That Courthouse Wendy’s is definitely a goner. I forgot what was planned to replace it though.

    Yeah, i recall that it is going to get redeveloped.

    No, however there does seem to be a war on Squidgod_the_unbannable. Guy keeps getting banned for some reason…

    Oh, yeah, that Courthouse Wendy’s is definitely getting redeveloped. Link here.

    So there will no fast food in north arlington until you past Glebe? Is that Mcdonalds by the safeway the first one after the wendys is gone?

    ahum, If you are talking about the one on Wilson, I kind of doubt it they just completely renovated the building this year.

    We’re just replacing the 2 for $1 cheeseburgers with $15 gourmet Angus beef burgers.

    Well the Taco Bell on Lee did drop the Pizza Hut pizzas from their menu, so I’d say there’s a full-on war.

    @Bard: You’re preaching to the choir. I would say wait until you hear what the Board approved/is approving for the NoVA MMA/Wilson Tavern site, but I forgot you were the one who started that thread a few weeks back. Who knows? In a few years, our (my former, save for work) fair Courthouse may well be as pulseless as Rosslyn.

    Courthouse was always a little dull. Nobody will let the Wilson/Clarendon corridor expand outwards, so they have to expand upwards.

    A war against fast food joints in Arlington?

    Perhaps some noteworthy losses recently, but there still must be over 50 fast food outlets in Arlington. Plenty of pink slime to go around.

    Can we also agree that both the Courthouse Wendy’s and the Rosslyn McDonalds are eyesores? If I owned property near either establishment, I wouldn’t be sorry to see them go.
