Chipotle Replacing Arby’s in the Highlands

chipotleIt took me a few weeks to even notice that the Arby’s located at 1075 Bardstown Rd had closed.  The other day when I was driving by I noticed that the building has been demolished, and there is a construction fence lining the perimeter.  On the fence is a Chipotle sign that says “coming soon”.  Ok!  I will always love Qdoba when it comes to the fast-fresh Mexican joints, but I can’t say that I won’t mix it up at the Chipotle every once in a while.  Not to mention that this is way better than another Arby’s or a Long John Silver or something like that.  Also, I am relieved to see that it’s not being turned into another hookah lounge or head shop.  I think we’re all set in that department.  Let’s be honest, that Arby’s building was a total beater.  Obviously there was no salvaging it.  I’m happy that the block is becoming cleaner with this new structure.  I have loved seeing this block update itself over the past 5 years, and it continues to improve.
