Ate there last week, still open for now. I heard they are looking for a new location.

Just curious--how much of the block is Kum & Go swallowing? Not just the old Hardees, I take it? The old Post Office and the former t-shirt shop too, I'm guessing?

Not sure on time but if you look in the parking lot of Battles/What use to be the Keg shop I think there is still a really old rusted sign on a fence or pole that has Hardee's on it. Completely pointless post I know, but I was surprised to see it when I did.

Unfortunately the Hardee's was gone before my time in campus town. I find it hard to understand why they struggle so much. I've always thought Hardee's was head and shoulder above the competition of fast food chain restaurants.

yup think it closed in 93. Then the keg shop moved there. Used to eat there after all the hose parties up the street. THen bought quite a few kegs for other parties. it was closer than when the keg hop was out west in the colorado shopping mall.
