What Should Go Here?

Checkers at North Druid Hills Road and Lawrenceville Highway pulled up anchors and left recently. In your humble opinion, dear readers, what should replace it?

I don't know precisely when, but recently pulled up stakes and bounced from their foothold at the intersection of North Druid Hills Road and Lawrenceville Highway. It's a corner for which I have an odd appreciation. The station convenience store across the street is open 24 hours. (It's also gets robbed at gunpoint, occasionally, but what are you gonna do.) Plus, that station always has the cheapest gas in the area. If you don't believe me, check it. Pretty consistently the cheapest.

So, now that Checkers is gone, what would you like to see replace it? Fast food buildings never stay vacant for more than 72 hours it seems, so make your suggestions quickly. And before you suggest Chick-fil-A, remember there's . (That said, the idea of two neighboring Chick-fil-As intrigues... )

So, what are your suggestions? Get them in quick. Tell us in the comments section below.

That Chik-fil-a basically killed the one inside North DeKalb Mall, though, so putting another Chik-fil-a right next to it would be like dividing by zero or something. I say a Dunkin' Donuts with a drive-through. The closest Dunkies is at North Druid Hills and Lavista and it doesn't have a drive-through at all. It seems like an underserved area.

Donna, you're right. I wrote about this back in June and then later they fixed the signage problem, so I believe it's all systems go... http://northdruidhills.patch.com/articles/golden-corral-plans-meet-zoning-delay
