Waffle House, 1805 Bush River Road: late December 2011   5 comments

Posted at 12:49 am in closing

You know, I don't think I've ever seen a Waffle House go under -- until now.

I actually had this Waffle House in my sights for several years. Due to the way it was situated, I thought it would make a good subject for a Nighthawks type picture. In the event, I never got around to it. (For one thing, the best place to set up would be the gas station across the street, which is also 24 hours, and probably would have gotten me some pointed looks at best).

I suppose this does help with directions though:

"Take the only Interstate exit without a Waffle House.."

UPDATE 2 February 2012 -- some daylight pix:

UPDATE 5 April 2012 -- It would appear someone has a grudge against those of the distaff persuasion:




UPDATE 8 November 2016 -- As mentioned by commenter Andrew, this is now a Molly Maid facility:


UPDATE 5 January 2022: Adding map icon and updating tags.

  1. What's weird is that this is a blow to an area that I recall reading was supposed to be seeing new life after Walmart #4379 opened up. May 9, 2012 will mark 5 years since said store opened and the revivial hasn't gone as in point:

    The former Key West Grill (1805 Bush River Road) remains vacant despite it closing a few years prior to the Walmart being announced.

    Without batting an eye, I can think of 12 stores Dutch Square has lost in that time. GameStop and RadioShack actually moved into Bush River Village.

    I wonder what Kmart #3168 (99 N Arrowood Road) will become...I have visions of it getting subdivided but no word if what it will become.

  2. Wow, when a Waffle House clears out, they don't leave anything behind but the grease.

  3. There was a Waffle House behind the Denny's at the Airport BLVD on ramp to I-26E, but it, the Denny's, and the BK next to Denny's were bought by DOT years ago and bulldozed in anticipation of redoing that intersection. I'm guessing those plans were put on hold by plans to extend the John Hardee Expressway to I-26.

  4. Ok folks, Today I noticed some HVAC work on this building so perhaps something new is about to set up shop (stay tuned)...

  5. In recent days it has become clear to me that construction I've noticed in recent months was so that Molly Maid can have some offices of some sort in this building...
