In case any of you were praying for a resurrection of Dillard’s restaurant in Durham, it looks like God Himself couldn’t bring them back now (after all, even He can’t compete with a gas station).
The beloved, albeit well past its prime, restaurant closed early last year but some of us might have hoped it would return in some form or another. That appears all but impossible now, as the property has been sold to gas station/convenience store company M.M. Fowler. Read about the property’s sale, including some heart warming quotes from the family, in the Herald-Sun. I’m glad that the Dillard family was able to close on its own terms, something not many restarateurs have the privilege of doing.
