I used to go to this Pizza Joint location fairly often when they were open late on Thursdays for Service Industry Night, but when they stopped that, I kind of drifted away. I had noticed driving by several times lately that they were not open when I would have expected it, but I put it down to covid + staffing, and didn't think much about it until commenter Larry noted that they had had a fire there.

Looking at the place last Sunday, I am happy to report that repairs are obviously underway, so hopefully they will be back soon. The building must be surprisingly durable as it has been a number of different operations since starting life as a Hardee's.

  1. I have to say I have seen no repair activity here in over a month. I don't know if the insurance didn't come through or what, but things are not looking good.

  2. I remember when Hudson's burned on Park Terrace Drive an insurance standstill was mentioned here as a reason why the rebuild hadn't started (and ultimately wound up falling through). I have a feeling that the same thing happened with El Chico and so I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case here as well...

  3. Per Google this is a permanent closing. Looking at the corporate site, Columbia is not even mentioned, just locations in Georgia and one in Aiken. It seems that when that location closed when it was Hardees, nothing else has been able to take over and do well there.
