Darrell's Place, 1727 Percival Road: 2018   3 comments

Posted at 11:27 pm in closing




To me this building looks like a former convenience store. The LoopNet listing (which shows a nice shot with the Darrell's branding in place) says it was built in 1971 which seems about right.

I know nothing about Darrell's Place other than a google search turns up a State article detailing a three person stabbing at the place, while mentioning in passing an earlier shooting.

I will say the Yelp photos are unexpected. (If you go left or right from that link, you may hit something NSFW).

The current branding is for WFP which I can find out nothing about, though it also appears to be defunct.

  1. I would suspect that this was originally a Minute Saver or a Zippy mart, probably the former since they had a strong presence in this part of the area.

  2. That used to be wild place.
    Open all night if I remember correctly.
    Lots of bikers would meet there.

  3. This was a legendary dive bar in this part of the Northeast for decades. It made the paper back in the 1990s when Pee Wee Gaskins was executed and somebody who worked at the place was selling "Well done Pee Wee" burgers on a grill out front. This is also the place where about six years ago friends of mine with EMS ran a call where a man had been stabbed in the side of the head with a stiletto heel after his girlfriend caught him cheating.
    (he lived).
