Morgantown Fast Food Roundup: Chipotle, IHOP & more

Let's talk about the deluge of fast food places in Morgantown recently.

Chipotle
This is the, possibly, the most anticipated restaurant opening of the year. And, I think possibly my most retweeted tweet ever when I broke the news. Despite the E. coli, Salmonella and norovirus outbreaks at Chipotle locations, Morgantown was undeterred. This place has been packed pretty much since it opened. My thoughts? It's decent. Am I crazy over it? Not at all. Is it an OK option in the area? Sure.

ChipotleChipotleStarbucks
Connected to the new Chipotle up near the University Town Centre, a new Starbucks is in town. We have a standalone one in the Suncrest area, and there's one at Target and the B&N Bookstores. So, I'm sure people are happy to see this. I'll be making a few visits, if only because I got some Starbucks giftcards for Christmas.

IHOP
A new IHOP opened up at University Park. I actually think it's a good idea to have a 24-hour place for students (and community members). Our other IHOP is only open 24 hours on the weekends, and I would've loved a place like this for all-nighters.

Sheetz
There's another new Sheetz in town! I know! What! Downtown Morgantown welcomed a new Sheetz, where the previous GMC dealer used to be (side note: I used to get my old car serviced there. So, weird.)

Orange Leaf
This isn't SUPER new, but I hadn't had a chance to try this mall froyo place until recently. Wong's Wok previously operated an ice cream place, and now it seems like they've taken over this one.

Fast foodBurger King
There's a new Burger King past University Town Centre on Chaplin Hill Road. Yep.

EDIT:
Denny's
There's now a Denny's on Hornbeck Road. I've never been to a Denny's, I don't think.

Are there any others that I'm missing?
