Underground Burgers & Crêpes To Replace Nathan’s

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.

This is the second time an area Nathan’s has closed in the past few years, as the HUB Nathan’s was axed for a Burger King in 2012. Here is the Facebook page for its replacement.

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.

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.
