    Bennigans are closing!

    http://www.baynews9.com/content/36/2...+shutting+down

    Corporate filed for bankruptcy and are closing all the corporate owned restaurants. Only a handful of franchises are remaining open.

    Re: Bennigans are closing!

    Our Bennigans closed about 15 years ago. I thought they had already done the whole bankruptcy thing back then.

    Re: Bennigans are closing!

    I love going to Bennigans! Where else am I going to get my Turkey O'Toole and Monte Cristo (even though I can't finish that one) sandwiches from. I hope the one in near Boston Common is staying open, not sure if it is a francisee location or not.

    Bennigans is always our first stop when we get to Orlando. I allow myself one Monte Cristo sandwich a year. I hope the one near the airport remaines open. I think Bennigans is a great restaurant. Sorry to see they are having trouble.

    I didn't much like Bennigan's but it's terrible that people will be losing their jobs.

    If the one by the airport is a franchise, there's a good chance it'll stay open. But all the corporate owned ones have gone bye-bye.

    Re: Bennigans are closing!

    Well that sucks. My first job after high school was at my local Bennigans. Unfortunately after I left (3 years later) they got a crappy new manager who killed it. It's been closed now for a few years already. I don't go back often, but every once in a while I have to stop at one for a taste of some of the things I miss (like the potato soup).

    On the bright side, I guess Rob McKittrick (who worked across the street at Steak & Ale during the same period I was at Bennigans) will have plenty of empty locations for shooting the sequel to Waiting.

    We had one at South Coast Plaza, and I think there was one at the Brea Mall. The only one that I know of now is in San Diego. They were around, but you had to know where to look!

    Re: Bennigans are closing!

    The only thing I went to Bennigan's for was the Monte Cristo, now the only place I can get one is Disneyland. Hmm, suddenly I'm not so upset about this news, guess I'll just have to fly out to CA more often. LOL
