    Campustown DQ

    Did the Campustown Dairy Queen close? Curious, the owner was a friend of mine. If anyone knows more, could you drop me a pm, please?

    "was" a friend? Sounds like you two had a falling out. Want to talk about it? We're here for you.

    It closed years ago already, unless it re-opened. I think 2007 or spring 2008?

    It has been closed for at least 3 years and is now the new location for the Fighting Burrito.

    Re: Campustown DQ

    I am almost positive it was still open when I got there. I am guessing it closed fall of 07 or spring 08. Then it was some other place that failed.

    I also can't understand why there isn't a McDonalds right there. I just think a fast food place open late could really cut a fat hog in the ***.

    Yeah I'm thinking it was 07 when it closed...

    Wasn't the keg shop/battle's an old Hardee's or something before? Last fast food place down there I can think of

    It closed down like most say about 3 years ago. When DQ closed, some place that was similar to it opened up, I cannot remember what it was called. Then Fighting Burrito opened up in that space this previous fall.

    There used to be a McD's in campustown, it was last open probably 6-7 years ago...It used to be where those apartments are now that are across the street from the Keg shop. I can't remember why it closed down

    Hardees, Burger King, Maid Rite, Quiznos, McDonalds, DQ have all left campus town. The fast food business might not be all its cracked up to be.

    I thought the owners of DQ were from Harlan. I don't remember their names though.

    I remember mcdonalds mentioning that they had competition so close by from their other location in the MU... and then that one closed.

    It is kinda surprising there isnt one fast food place down there, always remember there being a long line at Mcdonalds and BK at 2am when i went home from the bars, you'd think one right on welch could do some business.

    Did you ever go into that Mcdonalds??? I think you would catch a disease from just stepping in there. The place was dirty as hell. And yes I did eat there until it closed, 04 I think?
