Drove by the Chicken Joint on Route 10 in Plainville last night, it was dark and appeared to be all emptied out.  This location was originally a burger king then a pizza shop and then something else briefly.  Since BK closed it seems to have trouble keeping a tenant.

The one in Berlin closed too. The one in Berlin reopened as a new restaurant and that's the only reason I know the Berlin one closed too.

Yes, It closed i think before the new one opened.  I had heard the berlin location did a good business with their ribs they did only on weekends so I am not sure why they closed and moved.

Never been in Frascones but I know where it is.  Wonder how this space will fit them.  Do you know if they do alot of Italian dishes they sell for quick meals and stuff so they would keep the kitchen area intact?Huh??

Location is now Vita's. Vita's was originally on King Street Extension in Bristol. Then they moved to Farmington Avenue before closing in 2005. Some member of the Vita's Family owned Frascone's.

Empty again. This place is doomed. Vita's posted this tonight (1/27) on Facebook:

The former BK at 33 East Street in Plainville has been 2 more restaurants since Vita's closed in January 2013.

After Vita's closed this location became yet another pizza place called Lou's Pizza. That place was barely open 2 months. Now it's Monterrey Mexican Restaurant. This is Monterrey's 2nd location. The first being on Riverside Avenue in Bristol. It doesn't seem any busier than any of the other places that have been in this spot.

Over the years 33 East Street Plainville has been: Burger King (twice), a Vegan Restaurant, Plainville Chicken Joint, Frascone's Italian Deli, Vita's Italian Deli & Market, Lou's Pizza, and now Monterary Mexcian Restaurant.

Friends of mine have a theory that nothing lasts here because the building is set back too far from the road.

The property is also for sale for $575,000.

From the looks of it cutting down a few of the trees around it and adding a larger sign would improve the visibility quite a bit.

2017 update on the former Burger King building in Plainville. It has been a Thai restaurant for a couple of years. Sweet Basil Thai Fusion Restaurant.

I know of a couple here in NY - one in Albany is now Japanese and the one up in Saranac Lake is an Italian restaurant (and not just a pizza type but a somewhat more fancy one).
