Kentucky Fried Chicken / Taste of China Hut, 1825 Rosewood Drive: late 2000s   4 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...
