    Missing the Habit that’s coming to Isla Vista… I think that’s pretty big news for IV. Not since the BK Lounge was there 10 years ago has an fast food chain been there.

    When the heck is the Chik Fil A going to show, Burger King still open there I believe.

  3. Chris says:

    Santa Barbara Cantina sounds interesting, but shouldn’t that say “formerly” Sharkeez since Sharkeez no longer operates there?

    So disappointed in the tired Orange County look of the old Dons Jon…
    Absolutely no personality…I imagine the interior will give us more of the same.
    Ho hum

  5. Glenn says:

    You can add the The Habit in IV to the list as there is a coming soon sign on the Former(which is now closed) Dogtown.

    So they finally pulled the trigger! Too bad, but the place had some issues. The name and concept was genius……they just stopped paying attention to the details. Shame ……
