Apparently per Rusty, yet another one is about to bite the dust.

Cracker jack reporting there, Rusty. What's the reporter equivalent of click bait?

That might be what happened to Which Which on Northgate.

I know some people that are upset about that one closing.


No drive thru

Too bad, other than here, I do WW 1-2 times/week

It was all student walk up traffic from across the street. It didn't need a drive thru.

WOB - I cannot imagine the leasing company not wanting to renew with ALLLL that vacant space. Why give up $$$. I'm not saying it wasn't, but why not get some money instead of no money?
Tax write off for the loss maybe
Why yes, yes I really do run the best (and only) BCS ICEE Guide!

Wait, 20K/mo for the mad taco space by RxPizza? Are there crackheads pricing the space or something?

Agree to disagree based on the outcome if true

Maybe consider the rent in your equation.

What better way to offset rent than to go after the majority of your market. It was a bad location choice. Too bad, it's a real good sandwich

You can keep harping on the drive thru aspect. Most restaurants are not located across the street from a campus of 70,000 students and 10,000 faculty and staff while also being located on the ground level of two high-rise private dorms.

Piada does good. They have no drive thru. Nor does any other restaurant at Century Square.

Jersey Mike's at Jones Crossing or the one by Scott & White? No drive-thrus.

Which Which closing probably wasn't a customer count issue. It was probably an "everything about running a business in this location is too expensive".

I've been to a "real" Which Wich before and I was never impressed. ("Real" as opposed to the campus location active about a decade ago)

That may be the case.

But I know some students and employees that are unhappy that it closed. That said it was the most economical and decent tasting value on that side of campus.

I liked Which Wich, but admittedly did not go very often. It was the closest thing I've found to Quiznos, which I also miss.

Which Wich has changed fairly drastically since then too and has lost much of its charm. They no longer have the fresh baked cookies that they were known for, and the ordering bags for the sandwiches have been consolidated into just a few categories (and many locations just have patrons order at the counter). My wife and I both loved Which Wich back in the day (and live in DFW, their home market), but haven't been in several years due a perceived drop off in quality. Firehouse Subs and Jimmy John's are our go to these days, particularly Firehouse.

Jersey mikes should take over the space. I could also see a Dunkin doing well there.

Poke Stop is transitioning to a pho shop. I tried to order online but their domain was for sale. The restaurant is still open and when I mentioned that their site was down, that's when I was told they were transitioning. I didn't ask when or what to but I'm assuming it'll be the Pho Shack. My friends and I had actually ordered some pho from there a few weeks ago and it was surprisingly good. But I'm going to miss Poke Stop. It was good and convenient.

I would love to see Fat Burger return to a place across from campus again! I miss those days.

Well crap. Of the three poke places in town that's my favorite, and imo the best. In my regular work lunch rotation. This makes me very sad.

But what the hey I like pho so who knows…

Oh I thought they were closing soon. There were people there last night and the lights were on. I guess moving out.

Rusty had some intel on the old Ozona property. Our favorite strawberry tart poster may need to come spill the beans…

This would be fantastic news! My wife and I ate at the old Eccell for one of our first dates, at the new Eccell after we got engaged, and had Burger Mojo the night before both our daughter and, as of today, son were born!

Picture from Rusty's Facebook.
