McDonald's to Replace Atlanta Diner?
The fast food behemoth may replace the decades-old diner spot on North Druid Hills Road with a drive-in restaurant.
McDonald's has applied to DeKalb County with a request to reduce on-site parking, the popular development blog reported.
From the post:
As I noted when the Atlanta Diner closed, the parcel is rather small, in my mind limiting its uses. I had hoped, and judging from comments and emails, others did too, that a chain like Bojangles' might take space. Charlotte-based Bojangles' has plenty of OTP locations, but has thus far been unable to crack into the intown market.
McDonald's has applied to DeKalb County for a reduction in the amount of onsite parking, leading me to believe their intent is to have a primarily drive thru oriented restaurant with limited, if any, onsite seating. The request was to be heard yesterday, October 10th, but was deferred until next month.
