hust a surprise..although it was never very busy lately…now the bigger question..what will go there???
The king is dead.
Long live the king!
Burger King was there a long time, I hope something moves in to take the spot soon.
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together – mass hysteria!
What’s the sewer plant gonna do with its by-product now?
LONG LIVE THE KING
I believe if Burger King had english speaking people they would have survived a lot longer.
What year would we say BK opened? I recall bowling at rainbow and going there to eat…1974?
That was the sewer plant you remember eating at.
“Burger King” on Knapp Street and Avenue Y in Sheepshead Bay opened for business in September of 1973.
Yeah, that is exactly what is needed there. An Irish Pub.
I don’t understand all the thumbs down on your post, other Anonymous. Is it the word ‘Irish’? There are fantastic Irish Pub style restaurants all over the city and they serve great food in a nice, cozy, friendly atmosphere. I think it would be a great idea.
I passed by today and all the external “Burger King” signs have been taken down and removed.
It lasted many years, Guess all things go sooner or later.
See you are still on here.LOL
lets go starbucks drivethru……..i wish
I vote for Red Lobster…YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
yeah red lobster then maybe a chicken and ribs joint
I’m going to miss the place. No lines , no crowds and junk food though it may be, it was delicious.
I’m with Mamabear…Starbucks + drive thru sounds good. But, more likely a CVS or Walgreens…they are popping up EVERYWHERE!!!
A Greek Diner would be nice!
Cosidering the location, what can really take over? There are 3 gas stations, the sanitation dept., a sewer plant, a storage place and a nursing home. Most of the people that work in these facilities need a quick breakfast or lucnch either there or to go. I don’t believe anything other than another fast food place, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, or a drug store chain will do well. Most people didn’t sit in Burger King except for morning coffee and a bit of breakfast, not so much for lucnch and dinner. Most of their businees was the drive thru and people took the food home to eat. For the past few years Knapp street has smelled like an ongoing fart! I wouldn’t want to sit in a diner or restaurant there trying to enjoy a meal with the smell. As for Anon’s idea about a Greek diner, I would love it, but I wouldn’t enjoy a meal there with the smell.
Yeah, I would love a diner for a breakfast, but you’re right, the smell at times is horrible. What a shame.
Anon, I haven’t eaten fast food in over 30 years except for the occasional KFC. I love their extra crispy. So it wouldn’t really matter to me if they put up another fast food place. Although I would like to see Chicken Delight come back. We used to order from them all the time in the 60′s and 70′s. From what I remember, they were pretty good.
A titty bar that sells burgers.
They would probably open up a titty bar that smells like burgers…LOL
Yeah, I think a Boston Market would do very well there. The nearest one is on Ralph & Ave. J.
I would love to see a Boston Market in that location but I’d be very surprised to see any food establishment move into that spot given the fact that it’s so close to a sewage plant.
The sewer plant was already there when BK opened, and it used to smell ALOT worse around there. Amazing that they opened in the first place and that they stayed open so long.
BK was there for a long time. I don’t think anything will take over too soon, especially a restaurant or another fast food place. If I were to open a restaurant I would survey the area first to see whats around. I would not open up a restaurant next to the sanitation dept. and a sewer plant. Everyone likes to try new places to eat, but if someone told me about a new place to try and told me it was right next to the sanitation dept. and sewer plant….I’D PASS!
WHITE CASTLE!!!! YUMMERS!!
Yep! If you’re going to eat murder burgers and death fries, you might as well have the smell from the plant to go along with the heartburn.
yes!!!!! all the drunk teens can go there after the bantry
If someone is going to put another fast food joint there, i’d like to see a Nathan’s.
Wonder if it will be starbucks .
They were supposed to open on Nostrand ave but backed out. Popeyes will be taking their place.
Could it be they found a better location like on knapp street where Burger King was…… Just a thought
when are they going to tear down victorias
Yeah! Tear down Victorias and open a Pizza place.
The pizza at Victoria is good. You just don’t know what the add-ins to it are.
Ohhhh, i’m pretty sure what the add-ins are and they’re not seeds.
i have acid reflux from victorias
Stan, you’re lucky that’s all you got from Victorias. Last time I ordered from them I checked the food before I paid for it. The Manicotti was A slop plate of rancid cheese, the Benny burger was raw and the Calamari was rubber. I gave the food back to the driver and told him I would never order from them again.
THIS WHOLE SITE IS BORING WE NEED SOMEONE TO MAKE IT MORE INTERISTING OR LET THE PEOPLE TAKE IT OVER AS A SPEAKERS PLATFORM
shame burger king closed but service was horrible
BK & McD’s are a dime a dozen! I wouldn’t care if they all close. I have never eaten in any of them. I prefer to cook my own food.
If you’ve never eaten in them, how do you know they suck?
I sat in them with friends from time to time and had coffee. I didn’t care for the way the food looked or the service. I never said they suck, I said I prefer to cook my own food. It’s more satifying and healthier.
I really don’t patronize these places all that often but sometimes I wake up and have an intense craving for an egg Mcmuffin and a hash brown.

Bagels, you’re repeating yourself. Getting an early start for St. Patrick’s day?
we need a hooters!!!
I am going up a fast food place there & call it “burger king again”
That way all the Old Gather Inn Crowd will have a new Gormet Restaurant to dine at over the Holiday’s ,and we know who they are !
Irish Kevin, your such an ass! You post about the old Gather, say how great the old crowd was and then you throw around insults like the above. Which is it? Or do you just fancy yourself to be so much better than everyone else?
I have been called worse. However that was by someone who had the intrepidity to identify themself with a name. Using an anonyomus is being a computer or on line coward.BTW it is very popular these days.So I guess you are just following the crowd. My Name is Kevin,when you or if you ever get the mettle to post your name than we will be on equal terms. A few cold ones at the Inn why not !
Kevin,I couldn’t agree more.Intrepidy is putting to nice. More like Wimps,Cowards or just plain Scared.
Kevin is a popular first name, & most of them are “Irish”. You are still an ANON.
heard its going to be a nude bar
Nudie bar? Every one complains about the decline of the neighborhood, so a nudie bar is the last thing we need. If in fact that’s what they’re thinking of puting there get your signs ready and protest against it. Bars like that bring nothing but scum to neighborhoods.
