Egg Roll Station (Egg Roll Chen), 715 Crowson Road: 2007 (remodel)   7 comments

Then:

And Now:

Don't panic: The Egg Roll Station (also known as Egg Roll Chen) is not closed. I just thought that I should note the loss of the original building here. I understand why they might have wanted a newer building, but the old one (which I believe started as a Hardee's) had a unique "space-age" look.

I think that with the demolition of this building Silver City (the comics store) on Knox Abbot Drive in Cayce is the only remaining structure of this type in the Columbia area.

UPDATE 30 April 2010: I've corrected the street address in the post title. Also, I've found they have their own web site which has a good picture of their old building.

  1. Yes it was a Hardees first. All the Hardees had the same look. I remember
    one on Knox Abbot and one at Jackson Blvd and Devine, across from K Mart

  2. i really think these were burger kings. the building is shaped like a crown. like the paper crowns they used to (still do?) give away.

    i used to go the the one on knox abbot (where silver city comics was) and it was def a burger king.

  5. I was thinking former Hardee's as well...this Hardee's design predated me but I've heard from quite a few others that this was a funky design that they utilized on some of their buildings...

  6. This was for sure a Hardee's in 1973. I worked there for a short period of time. At closing we would take a water hose, also known as a "Hose Pipe" to the Manager, and spray the entire interior floor with hot water to clean all of the grease off that had accumulated over the course of the day.
    There were drains in the floor, that the grease went to who knows where, back then probably into the storm drains and out to the ocean.
    I must say Hardee's back then was somewhat concerned about cleanliness. This was about the same time Hardee's started selling hot dogs. The chili for the hot dogs came to each restaurant frozen, in one pound bags. We would open the bags and put the chili in a sort of crock pot, if you will, to heat it up, then spoon it over the dogs to order. Mmm.. they were good dogs.
