La Estrella #2, 2630 Decker Boulevard: 5 January 2012   4 comments

Posted at 11:50 pm in Uncategorized

Well, the curse of 2630 Decker Boulevard seems to have struck again.

La Estrella #2 after opening sometime after March 2010 has closed as of 5 January 2012. The sign on the door suggests that it will be back, but given that no date is specified, and given that the place was remodeled extensively already very recently, I am not optimistic.

I may have missed some, but I believe La Estrella #2 is the fifth Mexican restaurant to be in this building.

UPDATE 18 April 2013 -- Well, it's been obvious for some time that La Estrella is not coming back, but it's now official, with all the chain branding painted over, and the building up for lease:




UPDATE 29 June 2014 -- Hope springs eternal, Northeast Market & Coffee House is now open here:

  1. Was this originally a Popeye's Fried Chicken?

  3. @Midnight Rambler: Yes it was--as was the Vacuum Center building on Knox Abbot Drive in Cayce. They're remnants of Popeye's first foray into the Columbia market. I don't remember when they left but I think it was around the late '70s-early '80s.
