Eat Mor Chikin?

We were in Westwood a couple of wks. ago & saw that the Burger King mentioned here had, somehow, gone out of business. Almost took a picture of the empty storefront, but, as we like to type: Why bother?

We've no idea how a fast-food franchise right across the street from an entrance to the UCLA campus could fail* (Although the Carl's Jr. that was three blocks south & the Mickey D's that was two blocks south are both long gone, come to think of it. The In-N-Out Burger a couple of blocks west is always busy, however.) but not to worry, another fast food operation is going in: Chick-fil-A. We'll see how long their breaded chicken hate-wiches last.
*It's possible that the Regents of the University of California jacked up the lease, but who knows.

Hopefully Hate Chicken will be picketed by students. They need to keep that garbage in their own backwater dumps.

The more important question is where do you get the righteous falafels?

Why would they go to Burger King when they can go to the shack over on Gayley and get a cheap burger and an Orange Bang?

mikey, best falafels in LA are just a little further west on Pico in front of Santa Monica College, at the Hungry Pocket.

Food Trend Editor:
Falafel? How '80s.

You mean that literally shack-looking wooden place near the In-N-Out?
