why did this place close?
gimme a break

Mckeesport, PA

#2 Nov 15, 2010
If memory serves, its closing occurred around that same time that Oak Park Mall was getting off the ground and Wendy's, Subway and Taco Bell were establishing themselves in that area.
The KFC was newly built when the Burger King was nearing the end of its operation there. Id have to think that along with the competition from McDonalds and more folks shopping at Oak Park rather than Olympia, its profits declined and they closed up shop.

Since: Oct 10

The Burger King shut down because of the uncleanliness that spewed out from the place. The place needed redone and like Gimme a Break said there was an influx of new fast food places recently built. Burger King is the best fast food place for burgers around here. Now the best, that title goes to White Castle. Burger King was just another death in the family of a city once known as the best. Half of Burger King's parking lot is on Versailles property.

True. It was a filthy mess. I visited the drive though because the brgers are so much better but I had long quit entering.

There should be a sign near or on the building. There once was.
Drive thru

Wonder why the building has sat empty for so long though? Seems like a good location for fast food.....the shopping center is always busy and a lot of folks would rather go there than drive all the way to OPM and deal with the congestion around there....

Is this the same drive thru that accidentally fried a rat and put it in some kid's Happy Meal or whatever the Burger King equivalent is. Grotesque!

Pardon me if it was some other BK or some other fast food chain. Fried rats are pretty gross there, McK.

Actually, the entire building is in Versailles Boro and a portion of the parking lot is in McKeesport.

Hey McK!!!: We must be alert to this poster. Hopefully this person is recording only the dead by Natural Causes. Seems suspicious.

I wonder if all the old folks that loafed there all day drinking coffee at senior pricing and taking up all the seats had anything to do with it.

Looks like someone lacks discipline and had to feed the troll.

Way to go, Billy Goat Gruff.

That will be the Dunkin Donut previously was the repo guy and years ago was a Hardees. The building between that and the limo place that burnt down was a former small breakfast/lunch place

JJE can walk or stagger from the PNA and get a black coffee for the road!

Thanks Dunkin Donut for a public service.
