Haven't we been hearing this same rumor on Topix for 2 years now? Anyone got real proof that it's true?

BYB was pretty good food but Its overpriced. Im actually kinda happy to have something different to choose from If I want to get something from West 7th. Taco Bell should do pretty well there. Most of business BYB has during lunch are cops and firefighters getting their free meal. So thats probably one reason why they cant keep the doors open.

I will take Back Yard burgers over McDonald's, sonic or Wendy's any day. The price of the angus burger at McDonald's is the same price as at Back Yard. Due to the service in the dining room and the quality food at back Yard Burgers, I will hate to see them go. However, some may prefer the McDonald's burger. No Mexican fast food on this end of town, thus, looking forward to a Taco Bell. As tight as people are in Hopkinsville - the dollar tacos will sell well

If Taco Hell does go in there it will be an outrageous traffic cluster f*ck. The drive through at the current taco hell wraps around the whole building and is usually packed all the time.....we all know that at BYB 2 cars in line at the drive through is a JAM!

It will have to be redesigned. I just hope the city does not fit the bill. However it does usually cater to rich assholes.

I hate Taco Bell. Fake tacos, fake meat, fake Mexican food. They know how crappy it is too. Why else would they build a drive thru that you cannot leave or pull out of? I feel bad for the BYB employees too, especially the young people because they seem very cheerful and positive. Taco Bell employees all seem like they are smoking something funny. Maybe that is a slick corporate thing to give them an edgy pothead vibe (just like the late hours seem to suggest)? But it feels very sad and depressing place for young people to have as a first job.

Taco Bell won't do any more volume than McDonald's or Wendy's on the other two corners. City is not going to redesign a private restaurant parking lot so a few more cars can stack. due to age of back yard building, I am sure Taco Bell will tear it down, build a smaller building and position to stack more cars. I hate to see back yard go (mcdonalds burgers rip my stomach not byb) but hard to compete with Wendy's and McDonald's in a town that u are either real rich or real poor not much in between. Thus, a town where a Taco Bell or McDonald's do extremely well due to the food price point. Taco Bell will do very well on this corner lot assuming permits go through otherwise Hopkinsville will be stuck with yet another closed empty building that becomes an eye sore..
