Kentucky Fried Chicken / McCary's Bar & Grill, 851 Bush River Road: Fall 2023   7 comments

Posted at 11:07 pm in closing











McCary's Bar & Grill (the sign suggests McCary's Sports Bar & Grille, but the Facebook page doesn't support that) shares a parking lot with the phone & loan building that featured here last week.

Judging from the Google reviews, this place probably closed around September of 2023, though given their last Facebook post was 22 June 2023, and there was a shooting there on 28 June 2023, it's possible they did not re-open after that.

I'm not sure how long ago this incarnation started, but the building has been a bar as long as I can recall. The reviews suggest there was not much Irish about it beyond the logo and name at this point, so possibly the ownership changed sometime in the past.

UPDATE 6 December 2023: Adding Kentucky Fried Chicken to the post title based on comments from KC & Brandon.

  1. The shooting incident referred to in the above post was evidently McCarey’s *second* such incident. They had a problem in 2019, where four were injured and two died.

    When your business has two shooting incidents in 4 years, you *might* have folks in positions of power wondering what exactly you’re doing and why you need a liquor license…

  3. ^^ I had a gut feeling that it was a KFC at one time (though it was before my time)…I never ate there

  4. About twenty years I went to this place a couple of times after work when I worked near this location. I found it to be nice, and seemingly safe, at the time, but nothing to write home about. Given the changes in the exterior over years I suspect that it probably has changed ownership at least once.

  5. “SWIFF” in five points is gone. Not sure how long but saw the for lease sign today and the store is empty. They still have an online store. I am not too surprised it closed

  6. Hey Ted, you might wanna include "Kentucky Fried Chicken" in the title because this building was one of the "orignal" KFC buildings that later on got remolded sometime in the late 80's. I think this closed sometime in the late 90's-early 2000's time frame.
