Upon a recent trip to State street, we realized that Wok Out (823 S. State) has apparently turned off the lights for good. The fast food Chinese restaurant never was particularly busy, so it's not super surprising to see this happen.
We never made it to the restaurant and judging by the Yelp reviews we didn't miss out. They have a measly 2.5 stars out of 5. Not exactly anything to write home about.
While most of the other businesses in this complex appear to be doing relatively well (Lou Malnatti's just expanded and XSport and Jimmy Greens seem to be constantly busy), this is the third restaurant to close up shop at this retail spot.
For those who have been around awhile, you probably remember Ufood (which was a chain associated with Healthy eating and George Foreman). Ufood quickly changed to The Grill which also didn't last very long either. Our guess is that these restaurant concepts were more flawed then the location.
Do you Sloopers have any ideas as to what might succeed in this spot?
