Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs’ time in downtown State College appears short-lived, as a sign on the window of 404 E. Calder Way says Underground Burgers & Crêpes will soon replace the hot dog outlet.
Nathan’s and cobranded Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips was closed today, and no operating hours are displayed on the window. The restaurant opened at the beginning of 2014, then replacing Baja Fresh.
Just like Baja Fresh’s proximity to Chipotle doomed it, it seems Nathan’s’ opening across the street from Ken’s Best Wurst hot dog stand wasn’t a good move.
Why yes, Ken’s Best Wurst DID crush Nathan’s this semester.

Phone calls to Nathan’s, Underground Burgers & Crêpes, and the State College borough were not returned, so expect more details on the closure once they are.
