Kentucky Fried Chicken / Taste of China Hut, 1825 Rosewood Drive: late 2000s   5 comments

Posted at 1:25 am in restaurants

A couple of people have mentioned this former KFC building on Rosewood Drive. According to commenter Beth, it closed as Taste of China Hut about 3 years ago, and is still owned by the same folks. I see that there are still Taste of China Huts on Decker Boulevard and Main Street.

This setup is interesting in that the dumpster alcove is freestanding and brick. I came up on it from behind and couldn't figure out what in the world it was until I got to the other side.

Notice the sign for Football Parking stowed behind the building -- It seems like a long way to walk from there to the stadium, but if you're crazy enough to brave a game day anyway, I guess it's not out of the question.

(Hat tip to commenter Beth, and some others I've forgotten..)

UPDATE 11 July 2014 -- This building is gone:

  1. Did you notice the anti-armed holdup drive-up window? I havent seen one of those outside of the very, very bad areas of D.C., where the entire restaurant staff is behind 3-4" thick bulletproof glass at the inside counters.

  2. This place is crying out to be either a doughnut shop or a Waffle House-type diner. There is neither for quite a drive, and there is a lot of commuter, USC student, and event traffic right in front of it.

  3. The Taste of China Hut on Main Street has a vague sign stating "Temporarily Closed".

  4. I found this post in the 'recently updated' sidebar noting it has been demolished...

    I remember the last several years my grandmother was around she and I had several discussions about the way the Rosewood neighborhood was improving in recent years. I felt as if replacing this building with something viable would be the next thing to do in order to continue said improvement.

    I haven't found any info as to what lead to the demolition but I guess we'll have to say tune in the months to come to see what becomes of it...

  5. A new steel structured building is being built here but there is no signage as to what said building will become...it's on the Fulton Street end of the lot though...I wonder if this will be a new Family Dollar to replace the dingy looking one next door...
