Arby's closes on Rockville Pike (Photos)


Here's a shocker: Arby's has closed at 11710 Rockville Pike in the White Flint area. While restaurants were devastated by indoor dining bans over the last year, fast food restaurants with drive-thrus like this Arby's often enjoyed booming business during the same period. 


Fast food restaurants usually serve the largest percentage of customers via the drive-thru to begin with. But as of Tuesday night, this Arby's has been cleared out; even the menu boards are gone at the drive-thru and inside.

  1. Now what do you think they'll do with the prime location? Best guess is it will be a vacant lot for a decade or so while a developer goes through the MOCO bureaucratic red tape...

  2. It'd certainly be a great location for a Zaxby's/Raising Cane's/Cook Out if they're looking to expand into the area...

  3. That Arby's was there for around 30 years wasn't it?

  4. Thank you so much, Montgomery County Government over-taxers/over-regulators. It's getting to the point where we have to go to P.G./Howard/Anne Arundel County to find our now-departed favorite places.

  5. It's been exactly 50 years since I first saw that Arby's, when my family moved to Rockville. For most of that time, their food was pretty mediocre. Still, I'll miss seeing it there. Lots of things have changed on Rockville Pike in the past 5 decades, but that hokey sign endured for a long time. With luck, something really good will replace it. To be honest, there needs to be a Burger King on the Pike and that's a great spot. Dairy Queen would be nice. Also, a Wendy's (now that they do a decent breakfast). But, no more Starbucks!!
