Well, given that I did a Forest Drive Bojangles closing just a few days ago, I don't have too much new to say about this one. My sister tells me that she is nearly sure the store was open on Sunday 19 August 2012, so I'm putting the closing date as the following Monday: 20 August. (These shots were taken on 23 August, but the paper in The State rack was for 21 August).

Despite the total lack of signage, several cars pulled into the lot while I was taking these pix.

p>UPDATE 4 September 2013 -- Well, as reported by commenter Amy, demolition has started:

UPDATE 13 December 2013 -- Here are some pictures from 10 November 2013 as the new building started going up. I notice they managed to kill the best tree on the lot:

  1. Sure it won't stay empty too long.

  2. If I remember correctly the land the restaurant sits on land that belongs to the church next door. I wonder if they have plans for the land.

  3. I've never been in that Bojangles... and to be honest, as many times as I've been through their drive-throughs, I don't know that I've ever gone inside one. Do all of their interiors look like that, or was this building a repurposed something else? Almost looks like it would've been an ice cream parlor.

  5. Doesn't look like it to me. The sign certainly gives no cause for hope.

  6. I heard that this was going to be a Panda Express but haven't seen any signage saying that yet.

  7. Construction has started on what I currently hypothesize to be a new eating place for this site but no idea who just yet (stay tuned)...

  9. Sweet - Panda Express has some really good Oriental food considering it's 'fast food'. Whenever I'm out of town on business, if there is one in town, I'm going to eat there - sort of like In N Out burgers. Now when is someone going to build one on the Irmo/St. Andrews side of town??

  12. The Panda Express is open for business now. They did a nice job with the new building (althought it did seem to take forever to complete). The food was up to par with what you'd expect from a Panda Express.

  13. I drive by here every day coming to work and on the way home! The parking lot seems to be full almost every time I've driven by there! I would much rather sit down and eat a Chinese Buffet than eat at one of these places! More variety to choose from!
