Just curious as I haven't heard about this for a few months, but is the Speedway gas station still moving into Mckeesport?
Last I heard the owner of the Property currently leased by Di's Diner, sold the land to Speedway.
I know that the owner of that dumpy restaurant was fighting it, and said she would have to be forced out.
So anyone know what the latest is on this, I'd love to find out!
Thanks

Reliable sources say that is the location of the new Methadone Clinic. Supposed to be the model for other Clinics within the area.

The real estate transfer happened last month. In Pa., it can take up to 18 months for eviction to occur.

I missed a turn somewhere and ended up at Collins Street. Hopefully, this street is not representative of what I should expect as I explore the rest of the City...if so, then your town really blows. Weirdos walking around in underoos and speaking as if they were that little weird green guy from Star Wars. They kept saying they were the Roohoohoos and members of some type of J-League. Two pervos even tried to get me in their tent....something bout a hobo and body search requirement.

Just what we need...another faceless, chain operated gas station selling bottles of pop and stale sandwiches.

Wow. That will bring SO much business and change to the 'Port!

I guess its one more place for South park to work.....LOL

Ha ha ha ha...reading this thread makes me reminisce to the time when South Park ran off Shadango, Bella Toni, and Hobo Jim. What a hoot! Ha ha ha ha...gives me the chuckles.

What's your issue with the owner of that "dumpy restaurant"? Food pretty good, price isn't bad. Rumor has it she's moving into the old Burger King. Not sure if that's Versailles or McKeesport, but at least it's not white oak. How about those other 2 McKeesport landmark restaurants. When they had landlord issues, they just closed and people are out of work. They are other empty buildings in the city.

It is a fine restaurant and the owners are always polite and considerate. I welcome them to the old Burger King building.

Their prices are fair and competitive. It is a gathering place for former mayors and other pillars of the community.

The waitresses are efficient, very polite, and cute. The service is quick and accurate.

You didn't run off anyone. They are choosing not to benefit you with any attention.
You haven't used the "South Park" spoofed IP lately...how come?

Recommend that McK Topix readers do not feed the "LOL" troll. Appears to be a racist pedophile or some variation thereof.

Over priced. Had poker machines at one time. Ex cop ownes the place and only one former mayor, Lou, goes there on a regular basis.

A cop read me my rights when I dined there followed by some hobo who requested that I submit to a full body search. Not a very fun dining experience if you weigh in those gems.

Mayor Rege Maclaughlin is not a former mayor and is there as frequent as Mayor Washowich?

Rege? He was appointed right? Never elected by people. Just appointed by machine

I just moved to McK onto a little street called Collins. Not sure if this is good venue to air a problem that I'm experiencing but what the fudge...figured I'd give it a shot. Two gentlemen that refer to themselves as Roohoohoos and walk around in what appears to be underwear with super hero names scribbled in with sharpies have been making fun of me and my family. I believe that the primary reason is that they keep asking us riddles in the language of that Star Wars little green Jedi guy. Can anyone give me some insight regarding this street or these two gentlemen? Thanks in advance for giving all the dirt on these two creeps.
